Looking for ways to make your bedroom less drab, or maybe you want to add that extra touch to a party? If so, look no further. Lighting decorations are a simple yet unique and game-changing way to elevate any room, event, or party. Here are some unique lighting ideas that can turn your home into a fun and entertaining atmosphere.
Why use lights for fun?
Christmas and Halloween aren’t the only times to break out lights for fun. Lights are a staple for parties, holiday gatherings, carnivals, theaters, arcades, and so much more. Ambiance can immediately set the stage for the type of environment you are trying to accomplish. They can set emotion and get everyone pumped up for the fun that’s about to occur. There are so many uses for lights that most people don’t even realize. Check out some of these reasons why you should use lights to enhance the room:
Brightens the mood: Create an aesthetically pleasing look that will no doubt make people feel happy and excited. Bright lights have the ability to make people feel warmer and increase positive emotions. Some types of light, such as blue light, can even make you feel more energetic! Have some fun experimenting with different colors to see which one works best for your occasion. Choose colors that will match not only the theme of the room or event, but the tone you’re trying to set too.
Adds energy to a game room: For a gamer, the atmosphere of an arcade is probably an unbeatable favorite. Bring back that classic arcade game feeling by decking out your home game room with lots of lights. Whether you go for blues and purples to create a futuristic theme, or greens and reds for a more sporty look, the game room will quickly become your favorite place in the house.
Creates the ultimate home movie theater: Grab some popcorn, recline your chair, and turn on your LEDs for that authentic movie theater experience. Shine the lights on the aisles, underneath the chairs, or even on the ceilings – who doesn’t want to watch a movie under the stars? Whether you’re having a family movie night, or a movie marathon with friends, adding special lights will turn your room into a thrilling cinema.
Livens up your backyard: With nice weather comes the desire to stay outside all day. But what happens when it gets dark? Don’t fret – extend time spent in the fresh air with outdoor lights that give your yard a splash of color while illuminating the yard around you. Project them onto trees around a fire pit, gazebo, or just onto the house. You could even shine them around a pool – night swimming has never been so fun!
Elevates your party: While planning a party, you probably think about decorations, activities, entertainment, food and drink, and location to ensure your party is exciting and memorable. Why not think about lights too? Adding lights can take your party to a new level. Match the colors to the theme – multiple colors for a 70s disco bash, red and blue for the 4th of July, and green and red for your holiday celebration.
Brings the zen to your yoga room: Go beyond burning incense and playing relaxing music while doing yoga. Projection lights can provide a soft glow to enhance your soothing mindfulness experience. With a calming color like blue, you can unwind and feel the stress melt away. Put on a light show that is fitting for yoga, meditation, or massages.
