Recessed light in dining room?

14 years ago

We are remodeling our kitchen and opening it up to our dining room. We are moving the sliding glass door that leads to the deck from the kitchen to the dining room. The dining room is fairly small (12 x 10). With the slider in its new location, you'll enter and be immediately facing the dining room table. Should I leave our chandelier over the dining room table or convert to recessed lights so as to perhaps open the room up visually. I am being told that you shouldn't have high hats in a dining room but this is an open floor plan not a formal dining room. Our kitchen will also have pendants above the island, which is fairly close to where the chandelier is located.
