What is Uplighting?

Uplighting is a popular lighting effect created by strategically placing lighting fixtures on the floor and pointing them up. Thus creating the effect of "up lighting". Uplighting is a very effective way to dramatically improve the ambience of an event space.

Accent walls with color, highlight special areas, or cast a welcoming and festive glow through your event venue with uplighting. Fantastic way to spruce up a drab venue!

Perfect for weddings, corporate events, concerts, school dances, birthday parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, anniversary parties, or any party you're hosting. You can use uplighting in any size event venue, or even just a small home.

What is uplighting

So you're convinced and you're ready for some super cool lighting. What's the next step?

Option 1: Hire a professional
Perhaps some of your existing event vendors offer lighting services? If yes, you may want to talk to them to see if they can help. Sometimes its nice to just have somebody else handle things!

Option 2: Do it yourself
Uplighting is so easy its the perfect stress-free project to "DIY". All you need to do is plug some lights in and point them up. If that doesn't sound too hard (its not), then you can save yourself a good amount of cash by doing it yourself. The catch is, you'll need the actual lights. DIYUplighting.com takes care of this for you by offering an online up light rental service. You simply reserve the number of lights you want to use in advance (about 3-6+ months in advance is recommended), and DIY Uplighting ships the lights directly to your front door. Use the lights at your event, and then ship them back when its over. Learn more about the up light rental process Uplighting is an easy DIY project
