Christmas Lights can come in varied bulb styles, multicolored or clear, blinking or steady lights, and laser lights and they have a major role in holiday decorating indoors and outdoors. The best part of the yuletide season is decorating a Christmas tree or your home and selecting the type and color of lights, ornaments, and beads. Families often have special decorations, ornaments and other unique items to enhance their tree. Most people, especially children love the idea of selecting the tree and setting it up in the family living room. After that, the fun must begin!
Outdoor or Indoor Christmas Lights
Buyers have the choice of indoor or outdoor Christmas lights depending on the type of decorations and where the Christmas Laser Light Show are placed. Before shopping for indoor lights, decide how many lights and strands of lights are needed for the tree. Decide on a theme, whether clear or multicolored and how they are to be placed on the tree. Do you want a pattern? Mix blinking with clear or multicolored lights? How will they look with the ornaments or with the strands of beads? Get replacement bulbs ahead of time just in case some of the bulbs will go out. Don’t overdo the lighting as a little goes a long way.
Outdoor lights on the other hand, are designed for outdoor winter weather. These lights can be creatively used to decorate outdoor shrubbery, trees, windows, or eaves while enhancing outdoor lawn decorations. Clear lights remain a popular choice, as some homeowners use these lights in trees or shrubs year round because of their quiet elegant look. Multicolored lights, such as red and green give a festive glow for the Christmas season. And be aware that you will have a higher electric bill this time of year with the increased lighting.
How to Buy for Christmas Decorating
First of all, think of the layout of the lights. Where do you want the lights placed? What color theme compliments your interior or exterior home decor? A little lighting goes a long way especially outdoors. If you are using LED projection lights like Gemmy Christmas Lights you can install them in the lawn without mounting them on the house. Sparkle Magic Illuminator Laser Lights are also great for fast installation and easy setup.
Next, try lights in unusual places such as around a mirror, or indoor windows, or even an indoor wreath. Blinking colored lights are a favorite with children as they give a cheerful look for the holiday season. The flame bulbs and snowflake bulbs look unique and stunning, but make sure there are replacement bulbs for these as they can be difficult to find in the midst of the holiday shopping season.
When decorating a tree, be careful not to tangle or overlap the laser Christmas light. Later it will be easier to remove the strands of lights for storage. Remember that often less is better, as less lights give the tree a more quiet, elegant look.
Last, take care when lights are placed in storage they are placed and sealed in a box while wrapped carefully in tissue paper, as the bulbs may break easily. Keep them in a place with your other Christmas decorations safely stored until the next holiday season.
