Lighting sets the mood for the ambiance. Set the intensity of the lights depending on the feel you want to give to the place. A room can be given a relaxing feel with dim lights or may be decked up to sparkle to create the perfect set up for a party. Lights can also be used to highlight the particular corners of a place. A combination of perfect lights and music can jazz up the most mundane of set ups and can bring the ambiance to life. Musical lights serve as a combination of the two.
