Immersive and transformative, BlissLights make for a perfect addition to any space, inside and out. To choose the model that’s best for you, read on to learn about each model and how you can use it in your space.

Why choose BlissLights?

BlissLights are more than lights – they’re experiences. Under the wondrous colors, effects, and projections of BlissLights, you’ll see places you’ve long known in a whole different light. As you soak in the crystal-clear stars, drifting nebulas, and calming auroras around you, you’ll be transported miles away even though you haven’t moved an inch. It’s the perfect way to transcend the everyday with just the flip of a switch.

Which BlissLight is the right one for you?

Stuck between Option A and Option B? These factors can help you narrow down your choices:

1. LED vs. laser lighting

Before you browse the BlissLights collection, you might do well to understand why laser lights serve your needs better than LEDs. Commonly used as incandescent bulb substitutes, LED bulbs provide incoherent lighting, which spreads evenly in every direction. That's great for general lighting, but intricate patterns and shapes (like stars) appear fuzzy and quickly lose brightness with distance. That can mean projections look out of focus without being right next to the surface they’re projecting.

Laser lights use coherent lighting for sharp, vivid shapes—usually in blues, reds, and greens. Sky Lite Evolve allows you to put on light multicolor light shows with crisp blue or green stars to match any mood you desire. The best part? You can do it right from your phone with the BlissHome app. Transforming your space to transform your mind has never been so convenient.

2. Color

Think about what you’re looking for from your BlissLights as you choose your lighting color. If you want the perfect calming backdrop to fall asleep to, red laser light is probably your best bet. To keep this red lighting handy on your nightstand for your bedtime routine, the red StarPort USB is compact and powerful, plugging into a USB port and taking up little room on your nightstand. For more about how colors impact your BlissLight choices, read the BlissLights guide to colored lighting effects.

3. Visual effects

If you’re in the market for relaxing lighting, you might prefer a gently pulsing view into the world beyond. The gently oscillating effects of certain BlissLights take you there even if you’re lying still in bed. With these lights, you’ll travel far without getting up – they’ll start your journey toward calm. The Ark Ambient Aurora Light is especially wondrous for this purpose. The soft bounce of its green auroras against a blue backdrop is so transfixing your mind just might go blank.

4. Mood effects

The colors and visual effects of BlissLights can transform not just your space, but your mind. As you watch the calm drift of nebula clouds and stars across your walls and ceiling, inspiration is sure to come.

Alternatively, to ground yourself during yoga sessions, light your room in blue stars to remain relaxed and in control of your breathing. Green hues are just as soothing, so the Ark light again comes in handy here. Immerse yourself in the northern lights, then immerse your body and your thoughts in one another.

5. Price

Working on a budget? Then maybe higher-end laser projectors aren’t immediately on the table (though they’re well worth saving for!). The good news is that plenty of single-color blue, red, and green laser lights are highly affordable. The BlissBulb, available in green and red, is your budget-friendliest bet. It also doesn’t require you to buy a new lighting object, as it screws right into your existing fixtures. It doesn’t just save money – it saves space. Speaking of which...

6. Portability

Laser bulbs can fit into pretty much any bag, but they can’t quite nestle into your pocket. Portable BlissLights, though, are designed for exactly this purpose. The StarPort USB, available in blue, red, or green, is so thin and small you won’t even feel it in your pocket. Wherever you’re headed, just take out your mobile charger or laptop, plug in your StarPort, and let there be light. Even before you reach your destination, the StarPort transports you elsewhere.

7. Indoor vs. outdoor use

BlissLights not specifically engineered for outdoor use should be kept indoors. That’s because these lights may falter or break if exposed to rain, snow, or extreme temperatures. Outdoor BlissLights, though, come in waterproof housings and dust-rated materials built to withstand natural forces. The BlissLights Oblivia, for example, is created to work outdoors no matter what. Use it to bring the magic of gorgeous LED garden lighting to your home – and neighbors – all year round.

8. Where you want to use your BlissLights

BlissLights can be used in oh so many ways. Their astonishing displays of starry skies, nebula clouds, and auroras can elevate your gaming room, illuminate wine cellars without affecting your bottles, and add extra comfort to your self-care bath. For all these purposes, the original Sky Lite and the new Sky Lite 2.0 laser projectors are great fits. Their multi-color swirls of nebula clouds and starry skies let you see all kinds of rooms in a whole new light. Rare is the space they don’t bring to life.

9. Projection style

Stars, galaxies, auroras – BlissLights give you so many choices. The best one for you depends on the experience you’re seeking. If you prefer that your room doesn’t have even a slight sense of motion to it, stationary star lights should do the trick. For an indoor aurora feel that takes you beyond this world from the comforts of home, Velarus is the answer. With this compact LED light, you can create your own views and add new colors from the BlissHome app. Transform your room – and your mind – on your own terms.

10. Holiday and themed use

BlissLights and their stars, galaxies, and auroras are great for all kinds of party themes – outer space, adventure, aliens, you name it. They’re also great for holiday parties – well, if you buy the HolidayPort USB Christmas Light.

Like the StarPort, the HolidayPort plugs into your laptop or mobile charger. Unlike the StarPort, the HolidayPort doesn’t project interstellar sights. Instead, you’ll see adorable projections of Santa and snowmen wherever you point your lights. With BlissLights, Christmas isn’t just joyous – it’s transcendent.

There’s a perfect BlissLight for everyone

No matter your budget, space, or desired lighting effects, you can find a BlissLight that elevates and reinvents your surroundings. Just one BlissLight can be all it takes to recast spaces you’ve long known in a completely new light and find yourself relaxed under astonishing, comforting lighting. Browse the BlissLights collection to find the perfect light to make your space appear exactly how you want – with BlissLights, seeing is believing.
