How a Mirror Ball Makes Any Room Shine

If you’re planning a wedding or another occasion, chances are you want the reception room to looks its best. Have you considered adding a mirror ball with two lights? This set-up will provide your space with a timeless eye-catching shimmer that is perfect for any celebratory event. Let’s look at why this set-up works so well and what it can do for your event.

The Spotlight for the Mirror Ball:

  • The beam of light emitted from the Spotlight should be equal or greater than the diameter of the mirror ball.
  • Additionally, the Spotlight should have the appropriate brightness for the room or dance floor that is in use.
  • A brighter spotlight will provide a greater coverage distance from the mirror ball.
  • A properly placed spotlight will provide greater width of coverage around the mirror ball.

Typically a spotlight focused on a mirror ball will illuminate a side of the mirror ball that the Spotlight is focused. Therefore, half of the mirror ball will be illuminated and reflect pins of light. As a result, the opposite side of the mirror ball remains dark and does not reflect any pins of light.

The Benefits of Focusing One light on a Mirror Ball

When properly aligned, the mirror ball will create a unique shimmering effect that is sure to catch everyone’s attention.
