There are a huge number of different types of Christmas lights to choose from that can used to decorate the home and garden during the festive season. At Christmas time, nothing brings more Christmas spirit into the home than fairy lights so it is important to get it just right. That means you should get lights for the tree, around the home and, if possible, across the garden too. There are many inventive ways you can use Christmas lights to decorate your home at Christmas time. This article provides more information about the types of Christmas lights available and what you can do with them to create a beautiful display at home. You won’t want to take the lights down in January!
Outdoor Christmas Lights
There are huge selections of outdoor Christmas lanterns available of all different shapes and sizes. It is possible to purchase white, coloured, battery operated, LED lights and plenty more besides. You can choose to have your bulbs on green wire, black wire, white wire or a clear wire too to help keep it carefully hidden, and even different light shapes. Nothing says Christmas is here more than icicle lights displayed outside. These look sensational when displayed up against the house. Warm, white bulbs give a very elegant look, but if you want a more fun display then coloured bulbs work extremely well. If you choose LED lights for displaying outside then you can enjoy a multitude of different effects. They can flash on and off, fade and perform other effects too. These brighten up a house very well and provide an outdoor Christmas centrepiece.
Indoor Christmas Lights
Displaying lights inside the house is another great way to celebrate Christmas. You can choose to wrap fairy strings around the banisters or line mirrors or large pictures with them too. LED multi effect lights include a twinkle effect, flash effect, wave effect, slow glow, slow fade and sequential pattern too. Displayed in the window your home will truly stand out from the crowd. If no power sockets are available then you can use battery operated lights. Battery operated Christmas lights mean they can be displayed anywhere you want around the house, regardless of whether there is a power socket available or not. Indoor starlights look particularly festive. These are available in clear, blue, multi-coloured or red. They can even be used on the Christmas tree if you so choose. Net and rope lights also provide beautiful Christmas lighting effects.
Christmas Tree Lights
Christmas just isn’t complete without a Christmas tree. How you light the tree is an important decision to make too. It is possible to choose a coloured effect, plain white or something extremely bright and multi-coloured. A good way to use lights on a Christmas tree is to have strings with slightly larger bulbs on the bottom with smaller bulbs at the top. A tree that is decorated with white or clear bulbs can look very stylish and elegant. This is especially true if you use all white decorations to match. If you want something fun and bright then you could use multi coloured lights with different colour baubles and tree decorations. Sometimes it can be nice to have one large tree displayed in the main sitting room of the house with a smaller tree placed somewhere else. That way you can enjoy two different styles of lighting.
There are so many ways you can brighten up your home and garden at Christmas time. Rope lights, net lights, curtain lights or icicle lights are just some of the different lighting displays available. It is nice to light up both the inside and outside of the home at Christmas time to get the most out of this festive time of year. With so much to choose from, the hardest decision is knowing what to use. The great thing about lanterns is that they last for many years and so can be reused for years to come.
When it comes to Christmas lights, there is a very large variety available, from sets for the Christmas tree to ropelights, festoon lights and more. All Xmas lanterns in the home look great, as do any displayed outside too.
