If you’d love to light up your home for all your neighbors and family to see or your commercial property to wow all the customers and passers-by, these Christmas light display ideas will help you to get inspired! Read on for some innovative and festive Christmas light displays.
Make Your Roof Pop
A border of lights around the roof of your home is one of the most classic types of Christmas light displays. When not accompanied by any other lights, it can be a subtle and stylish nod to Christmas. It serves as a border of sorts for your home and draws attention to it without being overly flashy.
Speaking of flashy, you can choose to have lights that are static or lights that are flashing. Flashing lights will be more noticeable while static lights will be more understated.
Create Some Outdoor Christmas Trees
Another popular option is to hang lights on the trees and shrubbery you have in your garden. If you do have trees, this is an easy and effective way to jazz up your garden a little. This is something that can be done with any kind of tree, but hanging lights on something like a fir can be especially beautiful, as it looks like an outdoor Christmas tree.
You can go with classic white or choose different colors and create a theme. An outdoor Christmas light display that has unexpected color combinations such as pink, blue, and purple can be fun.
Line Your Entryway With Lights
If you’ve got a home that has a driveway or entryway, lining it with lights is an amazing idea. Almost like rolling out the red carpet, lining your home’s entryway with lights will make everyone who comes to your home feel as though they’re entering a winter wonderland. It’s also a practical choice, as it highlights the entryway to your home for those who may not be familiar.
When it comes to lights lining your entryway, static lights are probably a better idea than flashing lights, as these could be potentially distracting to those driving. White lights are always a great option, but you can also go for something more festive and unexpected like red and green.
If you have shrubs and trees at the entranceway, lighting them is perfect as well.
