2016 has come and gone, and as we recover from all the holidays we think about how to make 2017 even better. Along with the rest of the New Year’s resolutions list is “party harder”.
This may involve a few more trips to the pub, but let’s be honest—the best parties are in the home, surrounded by friends, drink and brilliant lights.
With the right lighting; any space can look grand, vibrant, lively and energetic.
There’s a multitude of options to enhance atmosphere of a home to make it the ultimate party destination. Here are a few examples.
Indoor LED lights
LED lights come in a variety of shapes, forms and purposes. This is because along with being energy-efficient and eco-friendly, they are also known for having flexible illumination. Their dynamic management of colour, light intensity and distribution, allows them to be used for just about any occasion. From birthday parties to Christmas Secret Santa, these lights enhance any gathering. The best part is that if properly maintained, LED lights can last you over a year.
Outdoor LED lighting
Although it may be cold out right now, it won’t be in a few months. For when it warms, you’ll want to have outdoor LED strip lights. Outdoor parties can be better than indoor ones with the right ambience. What better ambience is there than celebrating under a canopy of stars? String these lights along the fence, or around tree trunks, and watch them glow. Even if you are not planning to spend a lot of time outdoors, string lights provide necessary illumination when it’s dark out.
Although it’s been around 40 years since the 70’s, this nostalgic relic is still the light fixture of choice for anyone wanting dance party. Disco lights are generally low in intensity and can work exceptionally well in indoor areas. It may be hard to justice the use of these lights for celebrations involving family gatherings, but these are perfect for birthdays and parties with lots of dancing. The blinking, multi-coloured lights go great with a fast rhythm.
Get a dimmer controller
Although not a light, dimmer switches and controls can add an extra layer of customization to the mood of your lighting. With a dimmer switch, you get the right amount of lighting from a chandelier for a small gathering with friends. You can also brighten the lights for a big celebration. Dimmers add versatility.
Party preparation is not easy. Hosting a party is a lot of work and it involves careful planning. With the right lighting however, at least you know ambience of the party will be entirely in your hands.
