Uplighting is the latest craze in event decor! It’s a great way to add some flair to your party or wedding reception. You can use them in so many creative ways, whether that be highlighting centerpieces, backdrops, furniture pieces, or just adding color and ambiance to an entire room. Here are a few reasons why you should consider using LED uplighting for your next big event.

  1. They’re Safe

Unlike their halogen and incandescent counterparts, LED lights don’t get hot. They also emit very minimal heat (even more so than fluorescent lighting), which means they will never start a fire or burn your guests if touched. Plus, LEDs are cool to the touch, making them safe for children as well.

LEDs produce no UV rays either, meaning you won’t have any sunburned guests at your wedding reception, nor will you need to worry about causing damage to sensitive art pieces or furniture finishes with these uplights. 

In addition, the LED Uplighting Hire team can provide you with a list of their preferred professional photographers and videographers to help preserve your memories from the event.

  1. They’re Super Simple to Use

Most LED uplighting products come with everything you need. They have a built-in power source and usually include the remote control as well, so all that’s left for you is to plug it in, turn them on and adjust it. And if your event space isn’t already lit, use this lighting as an opportunity to illuminate other areas of the room or venue; no additional wiring is necessary.

  1. They’re Eco-Friendly

Because LEDs are so energy efficient, they’ll help reduce your carbon footprint at the event. They only use a small amount of electricity while producing very minimal heat making them extremely eco-friendly. Not to mention, most come with long-life bulbs rated for over 100,000 hours using less than 20% of the power that similar halogen or incandescent light sources would require. 

  1. They’re Easy to Transport

LED uplighting products have a collapsible design, making them easy to transport from event to event location. Just collapse the stands and store them in their compact carrying case until your next big party. Plus, they fold down for easy storage. You can fit an entire set of lights into just one bag, making it very convenient when packing for weddings or corporate events on site-set locations with no access to power sources.

  1. They’re Flexible

Uplights can be used in a variety of ways. You can use them to light up your entire event space for an effect similar to backlighting at raves, or you can highlight specific areas like backdrops, centerpieces, and furniture pieces. 

They also make great accent lights. If you want something brighter than candles that’s still soft enough not to overpower the room, add one uplight per centerpiece. Plus, they come in all sorts of colors, from basic white and warm yellow tones perfect for weddings/receptions to vibrant purple, pink, reds, greens blues, making them appropriate for any occasion.

  1. They’re Energy Efficient

Not only are LED uplighting products safe, but they also have minimal heat output making them energy efficient as well. Because of this, you can use more lights for a better effect without worrying about your electricity bill skyrocketing after the event! They also won’t cause damage to art pieces or furniture finishes with high temps because there’s no risk of fire either, which makes them an excellent choice for museums and galleries.

Because these lighting effects require very little power (especially compared to halogen/incandescent options), it means less money spent on powering up your next party or special occasion.

Conclusion 

LED uplighting is a great alternative to more traditional light sources. They’re safe, energy-efficient, and versatile, making them perfect for any occasion.
