What is Décor Lighting?
Creative lighting elements can quickly transform any space to achieve a certain mood or theme, usually at a lower cost than other event technology services. Décor lighting is used to bring color or patterns to existing architecture and design elements to highlight these things.
Whether you’re planning a dinner event, a wedding, or an outdoor reception, décor lighting can instantly elevate the experience for your guests. You can focus attention on different elements throughout the event by dimming, moving, or changing the color of your lights. Décor lighting will dress up your space by making your decorative elements sparkle and shine.
Here are a few of the techniques and equipment we use to achieve décor lighting:
- Uplighting: We use wireless LED uplights to create ambiance. Their small size makes it easy to place them anywhere, and they’re capable of achieving a full range of colors that can change throughout your event.
- Ellipsoidal reflector spotlights: We’ll place spotlights as needed to attract attention to your most important elements. You can also create custom gobo patterns to dress up the look of a wall or a large scenic panel.
- Moving lights: Create a slow movement of light or a pattern across a space to highlight different areas or create motion.
- Water lights: Achieve a water effect on a wall.
Pinspot lights: Highlight significant smaller elements, like centerpieces, cake tables, buffets, floral arrangements. These are great for wedding
