Open Plan Lighting
By using specific choices for lighting throughout an entire room, the space can feel drawn together helping guests to all feel involved socially. Imagine having a large family all sat around a long dining table- it is just as important to keep the family 'head' of the table as well lit as their chosen opposite at the far end. Using well lit lighting in this way can help keep up the party atmosphere!
Side Table Lighting
By contrast to lighting a whole space, sometimes a change in atmosphere is pivotal to an evening of entertaining. It may be necessary to use focal lighting as a way of dimming the brightness of the space, drawing attendees attention to a specific person or part of the room, or perhaps as a way of bringing a calming feel to slowly draw the party to a close.
