By avoiding overhead lights, you’re giving your guests the surety that they won’t be confronted with the harsh glare of the ceiling light at all times. This is especially true for common areas where people will be mingling around, as overhead lighting often casts unflattering shadows that spoil the mood.
If your bathroom or event space only has an overhead light, An option to diffuse the harsh lighting is to use LED candles or tea lights. You can also consider some colorful table LED party bulbs that produce diffused light at eye level for a flattering soft glow that is perfect for dinner parties. Alternatively, try using LED lamps that shine light upwards so that you can have a better glow for a much bigger space.

One great tip is to use light bulbs and decorative fixtures that will cast light sideways, rather than from above. Selecting the right LED party bulbs will leave your guests happy with a relaxed but radiant atmosphere.
