Q: The space we are using has a lot of windows, will uplighting look good even with all of the windows and the daylight coming in the room?
A: Uplighting works well even when there are windows and daylight in the space. Using uplighting with natural light can create some really elegant lighting effects.
When you are uplighting with natural light, think about the timeline for the event. Most events start with cocktails earlier where having a less saturated lighting look is an elegant touch. As the evening progresses through dinner the sun sets and less natural light is coming into the room, the effect of the uplighting is enhanced.
When dinner is over it will naturally feel like the room has been slowly transformed with the natural light leaving the space and the uplighting taking over. This transitions really well for dancing and the rest of the evening.
