Christmas And Lighting Within The House

Author : S Gee


Christmas is a time when lighting takes on a whole new role within the home. It becomes fun, inventive, spontaneous and crazy! For most, the Christmas period is an exciting time to get out those decorations, hook up those lights and to really set the scene at home to Christmas.

A firm family favourite is the white spot light. They are cheap, come in a variety of shapes, sizes and lengths and can be a great tool in giving your property that ‘magical’ feel. They often come with a wide choice of flashing transition options to keep everyone happy or at the very least, satisfied!

Another favourite is the red cherry blossom. These help to create a warmer feel and can come in both interior and exterior grades. These tend to have a more wow factor if installed on the outside (i.e. house, garage, wall, garden bush) because they can’t be confused with the same contrast of the stars. Warmth is the essence of Christmas and if there is anything you can do to help this, it’s a recommended strategy to execute.

Over the following years, an increasing trend has seen the manufacturers include sound boxes with the lights. With the various noises ever present in the household over Christmas, installing a hybrid of lights and sound could be a costly mistake. On the other hand, installing them on the outside add a great Christmas theme to the property. Add in some exterior decorations, fake snow and candy and you’ll have a great DIY Christmas theme zone!

Indoor lighting I would advise you to be a little more methodical over. Remember lighting can have a huge impact to the mood and feel of a room. Certainly the lighting is only temporary and will be in the property for only a matter of weeks but you and whoever will be in contact with the lighting need to be comfortable for all that time. Enjoy, be inventive but be cautious to not over do it!

Outside lighting you can go wild on. Quick flashing transitions, big shiny designs and all sorts of weird and wonderful finishes available on the market can help to bring your everyday house into a lit winter wonderland!

I hope this guide helps you, and offers anyone who is looking to install lights in/on his or her house for the first time.
