Tips When Installing Lights for a Party

March 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 198

Do you know how important lighting is to a home? Even if you have really good furniture and home accessories, your house might not feel complete if it is not properly lighted. Take note that proper lighting does not necessarily mean bright lights. There are times when recessed and dimmed lighting fixtures are more appropriate.

In deciding which lighting fixtures to introduce to the party that you are going to organize, you have to consider these tips:

The main consideration will be the type of party that you are throwing. For a formal yet relaxed party, you might want to take into account having dimmed lighting. You don't need to take out the lights that you already have. You just need to turn them off. In order to still have enough light, you should use lampshades and small light sources. Overhead lights might be too bright and you have to consider turning them off first. White light may be considered harsh light. Use orange bulbs instead. Aside from that relaxing effect, orange or yellow bulbs also have a warming effect. These are perfect to use when the weather is a bit chilly.

These lights should be placed in strategic locations. No part of the room or the house has to be dark. You would want to provide optimal comfort to your guests. But at the same time, you would want to keep them safe. The kitchen and the bathroom can be left with their original lighting fixtures.

A candlelit party can be best if you want to create a romantic environment. You will need a lot of candles in order to illuminate even just a small room. Use candle holders to avoid accidents like setting fire on your furniture or burning one of your guests. These candles are also effective in making the room feel warmer. Using candles for a party may be the perfect excuse to save on your next electricity bill.

If you are using candles, make sure that there are no kids in your guest list. Kids can quite easily trip off candle holders and other home furniture items. You will be very close to causing accidents if there are kids running around your home where candles are displayed in almost every corner.

Remember that you don't need to use a lot of lighting fixtures. What you need to be aware of is how to position the lights that you have to effectively illuminate the area. Proper lighting will also flatter the faces of your guests. If you are taking a lot of pictures during the party, proper lighting can be the most essential thing that you have to take care of.

Use more than just one source of light. If you are having dinner with people just sitting down on the dining table, you can use an overhead light. In addition to that, you may use lampshades and place them in the middle of the dining table. There should likewise be several more light sources positioned at the back of the seated guests.
