It’s never too early to talk about the grandest day of the year. The air towards Christmas is usually heavy with excitement, and everyone wants to celebrate it in style. It’s the biggest opportunity to showcase your lighting prowess.
Why not impress everyone who looks at your house this Christmas by using these amazing lighting tips?
1. Choose to go all strings
It works every time. Make your lighting scheme stunning by attaching strings of lights to the eaves, gutters and roofing shingles.
There’s a variety to choose from, with some strings made of as few as 25 bulbs and others having well over 200. If you can’t settle on the best design for your home, get help from an expert in municipal Christmas lights.
2. Choose a variety of lights
There are lots of different lights you can use to decorate your home. Opt for LED as they are durable, energy-efficient and don’t overheat. Next, choose a variety of colors, but be wary of mismatching. Whites are best for your bushes and entryway. Let the icicle lights go along the roofline.
3. Use specialized light clips
Forget those contraptions you used last year to install Christmas lights. Staples and clothespins are a big no as well. You might have noticed that they were not only unsightly but also poked holes in your trim and roof. Go for light clips instead. They are neat and make installation both easy and fun.
4. Ensure lights are in mint condition
If you are planning to use last year’s lights this year, examine them thoroughly to make sure they are in the best shape. Faulty strands and damaged wires will not work. They’re both a safety hazard and will most likely ruin your design. Buy new ones if you have to.
Your Christmas isn’t complete without lights to decorate your home. With just the right mix of preparation and creativity, you can transform your home into an eye-catching oasis every Christmas season.
