Smart Lighting Made Easier

How to Magic Up Your Mood with Game Room Lights

For every gamer, having a professional gaming room at home is always a big thing. Gamers may prefer the ambience of a commercial gaming room, while public areas sometimes have little or no relaxing personal space. Why not make your house, where you feel comfortable and cozy, your own game studio and just chill? If you want to create a ritualistic and ambient gaming space with game room lights, then you’ve come to the right place. 

game room lights

Gaming room lights offer nice illumination and atmosphere for areas where you and your guests are enjoying video games or table games. We consider gaming room lights to be appropriate illumination for both long video gaming sessions – those nights when you’re alone but playing role-playing games (RPGs) with pals online – and in-person pool or ping-pong evenings. 

The correct lighting for your gaming experience may be both utilitarian and attractive. We’ll guide you through the best lighting for your game room.

Benefits of Game Room Lights

Enhance your surroundings. The finest gaming experiences are ethereal, even unreal. Purchase gaming room lights that will allow you to immerse yourself in a new universe, improve your attention, and keep you calm during high-stakes gaming times. 

Add some individuality. Gaming room lights aren’t only for you; they’re also for your visitors. If you’re having a billiards night with your buddies, put on your brand-new pool table lights for an eight-ball experience that’s a ten out of ten. 

Create the appropriate atmosphere. If your daytime ceiling lights are a blazing white or a gentler off-yellow, they may not create a particularly distinctive gaming atmosphere. You want your gaming room lighting to be peaceful, welcoming, and immersive, not crisp and average.

Emphasize special effects. Consider the following: Your game’s back-and-forth is becoming tiresome, but when the lights in your room gradually change color or pattern, your senses are aroused and you get your mind back in the game. That is the strength of gaming room lights: Their hues or effects are so unusual that they keep you on your toes. 

Illuminate the appropriate areas. So far, we’ve concentrated on aesthetics, but gaming room lighting may also be practical. If your ceiling lights cause too much glare on your TV screen, gaming room lighting reduce this while still allowing you to see your controller or keyboard. They also focus light onto table games while keeping your surroundings calm, cool, and collected. 

Create a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. When you consider all of these factors, you may see that they all contribute to one of the main reasons we enjoy lighting so much: it creates a distinct atmosphere. Walls and ceilings filled with bright, calming star and galaxy effects aren’t your typical places, and for a genuinely escapist gaming experience, you’ll need a room unlike any other.

Transform Your Gaming Room with RGB LEDs

Red, blue, and green LEDs are referred to as RGB LEDs. RGB LED lighting products use these three colors to generate over 16 million different light colors. It should be noted that not all colors are available.

Players want to be immersed in the game’s world while they play. The use of RGB colored light in lighting design applications is best for generating a cool ambiance. Cool colors like blue, green, and purple should be used when creating a cool vibe.

Laser Light 

Lasers provide an energy-efficient lighting option that produces rich, brilliant colors. And since we diffract our lasers into hundreds of tiny beams, when you use indoor laser lights in your gaming area, you get illumination with a lot of character and exactly the correct amount of brightness.

With laser lights, your home will be bathed in raving-like blues, greens, and reds for some epic gaming time with friends. These lights may provide a calm ambiance for a low-stakes catch-up with pals at more relaxed occasions as well. 

Lights that Sync to Game  

Some game-sync smart lights can record in-game effects from your PC or Mac game and converts them into an instant light effect. Whatever you’re playing, your gaming experience will be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before. To tailor the experience, choose from a variety of immersion settings ranging from mild to extreme. To alter the strength of the light effect, you may also change the brightness level.  

The Overwolf platform, an open gaming application and service platform that provides apps for hundreds of popular games, including real-time guide, data analysis and video recording tools, achieves such a cool look by integrating lighting and gaming activity. The partnership of Yeelight and Overwolf bright us a novel gaming application that captures key events in the game while mapping these events to different lighting scenes. It’s possible for players to add different lighting effects to these game sceneries to make the gaming experience even better. This means that if a victory is achieved in a game, the player can map the victory event to a light strip whose color, blinking frequency and rhythm reflect the game event.

Lights that Dance to Music

For an easy-to-achieve gaming vibe, you can use light panels to make your ambient lighting dance to your game’s music. 

Using a remote control, you can make certain LED smart light panels rhyme with the game music. Yeelight Smart Light Panels are designed for all moods, especially for dynamic party and gaming. The triangular LED panels can be combined into any desired layout, and connected to the music by the built-in MIC with sound recognition. They will make your house a proper battlefield for deep game players!  

Star Lights 

Lighting fixtures other than bulbs can produce brilliantly shining stars. You may choose star lights in red, green, or blue, having fun with friends stress-free while looking at the lovely starry night. 

Sky lights create patterns of starry nights or wispy galaxies that stretch over your gaming room. Aim your sky light projector towards a wall or tilt it so that it reaches the ceiling. Set the lights to pulse or stay constant, or eliminate the stars and just show a sky. With galaxy lights, you have a plethora of possibilities for generating the ideal gaming room illumination.

Fan Lights

During extended play sessions, video game consoles and PCs may rapidly get overheated. Fan lights keep your electronics cool while also beautifying the lighting in your space. Plus, if you catch part of your fans’ wind, you’ll be able to sleep all night.

Light Strip

If you look at the luminaires, you’ll see that gaming rooms tend to be decorated with a lot of light strips. This is because light strips‘ linear impact might amplify the feeling of modernity. In addition, to establish the ambiance, gamers who build a gaming room in their house often add colored light strips behind the monitor.

Light strip is an excellent choice if you simply need peripheral lighting for your gaming room— for example, behind cabinets, along countertop edges, or around picture frames. Strip lights are exactly what they sound like: a spool of LED gaming lights that can often be cut to fit and come in a narrow strip that is great for framing windows, lining door frames, and many other applications. These lights will not fill your room like a galaxy light or a laser light bulb, but they will provide just enough accent lighting for your game session.  Consider them to be more of a game light decoration than a significant light source, offering a subtle but crucial finishing touch to your gaming event.

Colored LED Light Adds Dramatic Effect

Don’t want to invest in too many lighting fixtures for a game room? Another simple way to achieve an ideal game lighting effect is to replace normal light bulbs with colorful bulbs.   

As you read this blog, you’re undoubtedly discovering that there are more color options for a game room than you previously thought. LED lights can occasionally alleviate this issue. Some LED lights can produce hundreds of colors (but only one at a time), and some are even smartphone controlled for quick color change, so they may be the perfect choice for your game lighting.

If you want to create a cool and digital atmosphere, choose green or blue bulbs. And try orange or red lights to create a flame-like, warmer effect. 
LED lights are rather bright, particularly when compared to incandescent bulbs. With the advent of low-cost LED lighting, changing out your lights for a game room costs next to nothing, converting even the friendliest houses into a cool vibe.  You could easily equip the whole interior of your room with single-color LED lights for a few dollars. I recommend the Yeelight Smart LED Light Bulb for long-term usage and pleasure, particularly since Christmas is approaching (Multi-Color). It comes in four pieces, enabling you to create your own lighting sceneries with 16 million colors to suit a variety of circumstances. Meanwhile, you can always utilize the Yeelight App’s pre-set settings, such as game mode, movie mode or party mode, to colorize your life!

Projection Light 

Whether you use laser light bulbs that screw into existing light fixtures or independent, plug-in laser projectors, your projection lights will convert any area into a relaxing environment. You can set up your gaming area precisely as you want it using laser light projectors, and choose projectors that are small and portable, changing up your lighting scheme will just take a few seconds.  

Make it Easy on Your Eyes 

Playing computer games for long hours in a dim environment can result in accelerated ageing of the eyes, as well as the possibility of injury and eye strain. However, continuous exposure to bright lights can disrupt our bodies’ internal processes, altering sleep cycles and decreasing productivity. The prevalence of artificial light, such as smartphones, lamps, and computer screens, has been widely attributed to an epidemic of short-sightedness in the U.S and other parts of the world.  

LED lighting is an optimal option for gamers since it has a number of related benefits that can help reduce eye strain and other health concerns. Many LED lamps have a more natural brightness that is beneficial rather than negative when it comes to eye health, in particular, when exposed to over long stretches of time. Unlike halogen or incandescent bulbs, LED bulbs do not produce as much heat, lessening eye strain and increasing comfort. For eye-protection gaming lights, LED lights are suggested.   

Where to Install Game Light Fixtures? 

Close to the Monitor 

You should never game in a fully black environment, and one of the light sources should always be placed to the side or behind the display. This reduces the effect of monitor light glare on your eyes. 

On the Backdrop of Your Setup’s Wall 

Fancy lights may be used to illuminate the wall of your gaming setup. This also reduces the glare on your display and illuminates your environment with a variety of colors. 

In the Room’s Corners 

When the corners of a room are dark, the whole area seems to be unfinished. A large floor lamp can also be used to complement your surrounding surroundings  

Underneath Your Desk 

It’s one of the most underutilized regions of a gaming room, and if you don’t light it up, you’re losing out on a lot. It may also be difficult to reach the space beneath the table for critical tasks like plugging in and handling wires. LED strips may be used beneath a table, and a single strip will light up the whole space under your desk.
