1. Understanding The Concept Of 5D Rooms (For Rave, Trip, And Party Rooms)

When creating a Rave Room the best approach is the 5 Dimensions system (that would be if you let us use the term “dimension” loosely).

This is a concept that allows you to fully create the rave room of your dream while avoiding big mistakes along the way.

The 5 Dimension approach is the ideal way of putting together the world you have in mind whether it is for a trip cave or a rave room.

Here is the graphic on how to think about it:

As a starting point, here are the questions to ask yourself before you start:

Will this personalized room be a temporary or permanent thing?

That is important to know as it will help you determine how far you will possibly go in terms of moving heavy furniture, drilling holes in the wall for mounting elements, etc…

Will it be just for myself or do I plan on having people over?

That question is also important as you will know if you will go for a limited space just for you or if you will need to create room for both the dance floor and the DJ booth.

Do I go for a particular theme, specific colors, or freestyle?

That element will also be important especially if you decide to buy art pieces like tapestries or posters (that already have their specific colors), but if you are not into those you can change your mind later, as most lights have an inbuilt variety of colors that you can modify any time you want.

2. The First Dimension: The Floor

The Floor: Steps To Think About

First have a neat clean floor, to really project the best ideas for the chosen room you need to be able to see how big the floor is.

Then, you can start to let your mind go and create cool elements on the floor with the following items:

  • Black Light Tape + Black Lights
  • Projection lights

Remember for projection lights and black lights to project on the floor, the source will have to come from the ceiling or high furniture, and for the ceiling, the light source will usually come from the floor.

So if you do want Black Light Tape on the floor, make sure you will have the space on the ceiling to put your black lights, in case you had in mind a poster or an art piece.

Then once you have this figured out you can start with your walls.

3. The Second Dimension: The Walls And Doors

Walls And Doors: The Steps To Think About

For the windows and doors, you want to make sure that what you will set up does not prevent the ability to use them.

When adding special decors it is great to go heavy and have a cool setup for your room, but you don’t want a room completely blocked and be unable to use properly the doors and the windows.

That is because, even if you want to rave for three days straight, you also want at some point it to be a fresh rave room or trip cave that you can add some fresh air to now and then when needed.

4. The Third Dimension: The Ceiling

The Ceiling: The Steps To Think About

Often forgotten the ceiling is visually probably the dimension that will be the most immersing surface when getting to any place and in particular a rave room or a trip cave.

You can play around and add posters as well as tapestries or even stickers but we favor projected light or LED light strips to create the best effects.

5. The Fourth Dimension: The Volume Of the Room

The Volume Of The Room: The Steps To Think About

Now that you have “painted” the floor, walls, doors, and ceiling you need to consider how you want to fill the volume of the room.

To create the volume effect in the room you will need a fog machine.

Fog is an amazing tool to create a special ambiance and create a different feel of the lights in the room.

Now, the way you fill the volume with light is to decide on how many lights will cross the room and be projected in the middle of it, so they can be purposefully seen with the fog.

If done correctly, seeing the light and the lasers in the air is simply amazing.

6. The Fifth Dimension: The Sound For The Room

The Sound For The Room: Steps To Think About

Now, the sound system.

For this part, don’t forget to add a little space for the DJ booth if it is part of what you have in mind.

As people tend to watch the DJ performing, it is always a good idea to add some music synch lighting to the booth to complete the style of the room.

And finally, if you do invite people over sound system-wise you have two options, you can either go “silent disco” with synchronized headsets, that is if you want to make sure you don’t bother your neighbors.

If you have great sound-proofing walls you can get portable speakers easy to set up and works great in small environments or simply go for regular speakers.

8. What Are The Most Common Pitfalls When Building A Rave Room Or Trip Cave?

  1. Too Many lights And Effects: If you go overboard with the lights it will end up killing the effect, so yes you do need lights all over the place, but they need to be well-thought-out.
  2. Room Not Being Dark Enough: e.g., Blackout curtains too small or too thin.
  3. Wrong Light Angles Or Positioning (Light Pitfall 1): most of the effects of the lights are blocked if someone is standing too close to it or in front of it, killing the ambiance…
  4. Wrong Light Angles Or Positioning: (Light Pitfall 2): Too many lights at eye level, forcing people to close their eyes while dancing or even being annoyed by it. You can have some at eye level but make sure it is a small percentage.
  5. Too Many Colors: For the best look, it is always best to not go overboard with the number of colors present in the room, one color theme is great, two colors theme is amazing, three colors theme can be fantastic if well managed, but beyond that adding more colors will diminish the effect and the aesthetic of the room.
  6. Bad Cable Management: think through the room based on the location and the number of outlets you have. With all the effects for the music, the lights, and other electronic devices you might face chaos cable-wise in the room, we recommend taping the cables on the walls, ceiling, and floor to keep each area neat and avoid accidents of people tripping or device breaking.
  7. Bad Switch Management: you want to be able to put your system on and off easily, otherwise you might break things while putting it on or off, or even stop using it because of the inconvenience each time, and that would be a bummer. So try to think through where you will plug each light and device while making sure you can turn them on and off without too much hassle.
  8. Putting Too Many Decors On The Main Door: whether you are by yourself or with friends you need to keep the main door (the door people have to go through to get in and out of the room) easily accessible and smoothly usable. Putting too many lights or curtains on the doors can become a problem for people coming in and out with drinks or simply going to the toilet and not paying enough attention to the decor as they need to interact often with the door…
  9. Not Enough Light Effects: this is arguably the less likely occurrence to happen as people usually go for too much than not enough. That said, for instance, when setting up your room you don’t want to have lights everywhere but not on one wall, so make sure direct lights, ambient lights or glow elements are present on each surface, so it does not create a weird look in the room.
  10. Leaving Items Too Fragile In The Room: This is also based on whether you will be solo or inviting people, that said, even if by yourself, this room invites dancing which can lead to hitting unintentionally items in the room, so be mindful of what you leave there.
