Suppose you’ve decided to take your room to the next level with BlissLights, but you’re unsure how to put your plans into motion. Good news – we at BlissLights have plenty of ideas to share about our specialty laser lights!

It's easy to create great ambience with just one of our products, whether that's Sky Lite or StarPort USB. But have you ever wondered how you could take them further? Here's how you can get the most from your BlissLights!

1. Maximize coverage

One question we hear a lot is: "How do you guys get the lights to cover so much space in a room?" The answer: placement is key!

As you can see above, our lights cover more area the farther away they are from the projection surface. Laser light is unique—because it's coherent (all the light waves traveling in the same direction), laser light maintains its brightness over much longer distances than other kinds of light. Use that to its full potential!

When we want to cover a whole room in stars, we will usually place the light in a corner low to the ground and aim toward the center of the room. No matter where you place your projector, your stars won’t become fuzzy or blurry – coherent light shines in a concentrated, narrow path that keeps our starry sky effects crystal-clear.

2. Mix and match

Have more than one BlissLight? Try combining effects to create something new! By mixing and matching specialty lighting, you can bring a fresh, distinct design that is unique just to you. Some of our favorite multi-light setups below:

Red StarPort + SkyLite Blue

This cosmic contrast of blue and red stars is unexpectedly soothing. Also makes a great backdrop for movie night.

BlissBulbs + SkyLite Green

There are many ways to mix and match BlissBulbs with Sky Lite. They all look amazing!

3. Try new spaces

Just because you’ve placed your BlissLights next to your bed doesn’t mean they have to stay there! If you aren’t jazzed about where within your room your stars are currently glistening, move your light somewhere else within your room.

Here’s an easy trick: If you have your Sky Lite on your nightstand, try moving it onto your desk so it faces your bed. Or have you finally wall-mounted that new TV you’ve been dreaming about? In that case, try plugging in your USB StarPort behind your TV for glowing stars that won’t interfere with your favorite movie – if anything, they’ll add to it.

4. Be creative

With such a wide selection of BlissLights to choose from and endless ways to use them, you have no excuse to suppress your creative side and personality. Whether you’re using lights from one of our bundles or trying BlissLights you’ve bought separately, you’ll have so many ways to achieve the lighting setup of your wildest dreams.

Use the BlissLights Stargazer Bundle to completely transform your room into a galaxy dreamland by pairing it with other galaxy bedroom decor such as dangling stars and a nebula blanket. If you’re looking for an easy way to add immersive serenity to your meditation room, match the BlissLights Ark Ambient Aurora Light with a green or red BlissBulb. Your room will be filled with laser stars, blue nebula clouds, and a moving green aurora – talk about relaxing!

5. Try new light bulb colors

With colored light bulbs, you can change things up in a jiffy. Just switch out the bulb in your table or floor lamp for a new lighting experience whenever you desire!

With different colored bulbs such as blue, green, and red at hand, you’ll have just what you need to complement the atmosphere that your BlissLights Sky Evolve Laser Galaxy Projector provides. If you have two bedside table lamps, try a different colored BlissBulb in each for a multi-colored array of twinkling stars.

6. Don’t be afraid to install multiple LEDs or lasers

While you might be thinking that less is more, sometimes it is all right—and even necessary—to add more than just one source of lighting. Using more than one form of LEDs or lasers will ultimately help to create depth in your room from the layers of lighting. If you love your BlissBulb but feel that you want more than just the glittering stars, set up the Sky Lite or Ark Light for a more immersive lighting experience. Experiment with different colors, effects, and placements to find what is right for you.

7. Try new rooms

Most of us automatically think of using BlissLights in a living room, bedroom, or game room...but sometimes they look great in the most unexpected locations! Here are a few of the weirder places we've tried out, with amazingly nice results.

The kitchen

Cook up some amazing atmosphere under the stars. Dim your lights and place your BlissLights on the counter or kitchen island for an especially out-of-this-world cooking or baking experience. When you’re done preparing your delicious food, leave your BlissLights on to cover your room in stars. This way, you can appreciate breathtaking sights while dining in style.

The bathroom

Yes, really! Spa night vibes all the time. Just turn on your BlissLights, play your favorite music, light some incense, and drift off into a state of pure tranquility in a lush bubble bath.

The basement

Just because you’re underground doesn’t mean your lighting can’t go above and beyond. Give your basement a gorgeous pop of color and transform it from a dreary, uninviting space into a room that entices everyone who enters.

8. Outdoor fun

The versatility of BlissLights means that your lighting fun doesn’t have to stay indoors. As you relax on your balcony over a romantic date night dinner, shine your portable BlissLights StarPort on your exterior walls. If your deck or patio has electrical outlets, bring the magic of your Ark Ambient Light or Galaxy Sky Lite outdoors. As with the StarPort, just point your Ark or Galaxy projectors at your home’s exterior and enjoy the thrilling outdoor light show.
