4 Tips To Get The Most Out of Your Outdoor Christmas Lights

Top Tips For Getting The Most Out of Your Christmas Lights.

Do you enjoy the holiday season but get bogged down with decorating? It can be difficult to create a display you love while maintaining your sanity with everything else going on. 

If you want to avoid stress and get the most out of your outdoor Christmas lights, you’ve come to the right place. Keep reading to learn four tips to help you enjoy the lights and the season more.

1. Choose the Right Lights

Not all Christmas lights are the same. Older types of Christmas lights are definitely not as effective or safe as some of the newer options available.

LED lights are an easy choice. They save you money, drastically reducing the hole in your Christmas light budget that electricity will create. Plus, they are safer because they have a reduced risk of starting a fire, are safer to the touch, and are more durable in the cold.  

We prefer to use lights with 12 spacing because they provide the best level of coverage while maintaining a clean and polished look. For bushes, wreathes, and similar areas, we use 5mm LED lights to keep a low profile and blend into the background while still creating a high level of brilliance. Finally, our premium brand RGB LEDs are a fun way to add color to your home any time of the year.

2. Get Help With Your Christmas Light Installation

Many people dread hanging up their lights at Christmastime. It’s a hassle to pull them all out, figure out which strands work, and then climb up on a ladder and actually hang them. Then at the end of the season, you have to pull them down and find a place to store the lights.

Getting professional help with your Christmas light setup is an easy way to streamline your outdoor holiday decor. We’ll handle everything, from design to installation to removal.

This saves you time and hassle as you don’t need to spend your evening or weekend putting up lights. It can also help keep you safe, as many people, unfortunately, fall from ladders during the holidays.

3. Find Some Inspiration

Figuring out what you want your Christmas lights to look like can be a hassle all on its own. 

We highly recommend finding some inspiration. Look around town or in a magazine and see pictures of light displays you enjoy. Then, you can base your own display on them.

If you’re working with A Brilliant Solution for your lights, you don’t need to worry about creating a display. We’ll draw up a custom design just for you. But if you have inspiration from displays you love, we’d be happy to include this in the design.

4. Add Some Color 

We’ve all seen videos of those displays where the lights are out of this world and synced to music. While we’re not saying you need to go this far, adding some color can help spice up your Christmas light setup.

We offender RGB led lights that let you control the color of the lights from your smart device. Adding colors for Christmas lights will help you really stand out from your neighbors.

If you’re a business owner, you definitely need to consider this option. Not only can our displays work during the holiday season, but you can leave them up year-round. Since you can control the colors, you’ll have the option to highlight other holidays, sales, and other special events to market your business. 

Get the Most Out of Your Outdoor Christmas Lights

Your holiday light display should be a source of joy, not frustration and stress. By following these five tips, you’ll have a much better outcome and be able to get the most enjoyment possible from your outdoor Christmas lights.
