Home entertaining

Home entertaining can get a little stressful, especially if you’re having a lot of people coming over. But if you’re the type of person who just invites a few friends over to watch a movie or the big game and have some pizza, then your entertainment area must be a wide screen LCD TV and a surround sound system. To make this space even more entertaining and fun, you can add some interesting lighting to it. Below are a few tips on how you can light up your entertainment area. Controllable lights Find a lighting system that you can control, either with a dimmer or a remote.

There are a number of lighting systems that you can have installed which can be wired up to a main panel that lets you set the brightness as well as turn it off or on. Some lighting systems, like ones with modern LED bulbs, would even let you control the bulbs using an app on you smart phone or tablet. A controllable system makes it easier for you to turn the lights down as the movie or show starts. Backlighting Adding a little light to the back of your screen will make it stand out and really emphasize it. You can use regular light bulbs or even light tubes for this. Another option is to use strips of LEDs that you can install in a panel. Just make sure you choose the ones that are not too bright and give out a nice, bluish light to really give a wonderful backlight effect to your screen.

Warm Tones Using bulbs with warm tones give the space a more welcoming feel. Warm toned bulbs have a yellowish tone to them, making them less harsh on the eyes. LED light bulbs come in different tones, so you won’t have a hard time looking for a warm toned one for your entertainment space.
