From start to finish: transforming a blank events space

It can be a daunting prospect when you’re looking to transform a blank events space. So to give you some insight we wanted to share our top tips on how to achieve a successful transformation.

With our events centre based in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside, we know how amazing it can be to transform a blank canvas into something new and exciting.


Every amazing event starts with the basics, and lighting is a key element to hosting any great event.

Lighting is the quickest and most effective way to customise the look and feel of a venue. We recommend setting aside a considerable amount of your budget solely for lighting as this is one area where spending more will be seen in the quality.

When hiring our unique venue every client has complimentary use of our bespoke lighting system. With hundreds of lighting combinations available we have a colour for every occasion.

Expressing Creativity

One of the great benefits of having a totally blank canvas is that you can imprint your creativity on the venue from the general theme to the catering and importantly the decor.

Choosing a unique theme will help to make sure your event stands out from the crowd. We believe it’s important to keep pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved, this means that even if the same clients return we make sure they are wowed by our imagination and skill.

Table Decor

People often sometimes forget about the smaller details when it comes to decor, and we believe that the tables are the centerpiece of any event. It could be said that the small details matter the most, for example matching the linen to the theme and adding personalised table tags to each table are just some of the extra things that can be done to impress your guests.

Last and most important of all is the table centerpieces at the IXL we believe that no expense should be spared in this area. Having different displays with a variety of heights and designs, it will give the room an extra level of depth and will finish the room off perfectly.
