Pick a Style
One of the biggest keys to decorating your house in a way that will stand out is to pick a style and attempt to consistently stick to it. When you stick to a style, it makes your Christmas decor look planned out and you will be more likely to get the results you desire.
In order to pick a style, you will want to take a look at your house from the street and determine what areas you can easily decorate. Are there trees or bushes that could use strands of lights? Can you hang lights from a fence in your front yard? Does your house have eaves or overhangs that could be decorated with icicle lights?
Once you have looked over your house, you will get a better idea of a style that could illuminate the best features. Perhaps you will choose to only use white lights on your house, and multicolored lights on the trees in your yard. Maybe it would look best to utilize different types of icicle lights, or even invest in projection effects for your house. You could decide to go for a classic look, and use warm white lights on your house with wreaths and red ribbons as accents. Regardless of the style you choose, remember to stay consistent. Your house will look better because of it!
Determine Your Budget
At The Christmas Light Emporium, we understand that the holidays can be a financially difficult time of year. Between paying all the normal bills, saving for emergency expenses, and buying gifts for those you care about, it can be expensive to participate in all the fun. That’s why it is crucial to determine your budget for Christmas decorations before you start making your house stand out.
We are committed to selling affordable and high-quality decorations on our site, and we are bound to have lights that fit both your desired style and your budget. It might also be wise to set aside a specific amount of money to spend on decorations each holiday season. Maybe you don’t feel comfortable spending much for lights now, but you can buy some this year and then add to your collection in years to come. Before you know it, your house will be emanating holiday spirit.
Choose High-Quality Christmas Lights
The next step to ensuring that your house stands out is choosing high-quality lights. Lights are typically the core of holiday decorations, so it is crucial to purchase some that glow bright, feature vibrant colors, and last from year to year. LED lights are typically the best type available since they are affordable, bright, efficient, and durable.
We even offer permanent Christmas lights so you don’t have to redecorate your entire home in years to come. Our permanent lights come from EverLights, and they are programmable LEDs. Since they are programable, you can change their colors to match the seasons. Better yet, they are difficult to notice when they are not on, which is great for people who only wish to use light decorations for the holidays.
Regardless of how you choose to decorate your house this year, lights will play an essential role in your decorations. Lights can provide a steady background for other decor, strobe to make your house stand out, or even sync with music. The possibilities are almost endless, and thanks to our wide selection, your dream holiday design can become reality.
Get Other Decorations to Go With Your Lights
Once you have selected the lights that will be the backbone to your decorations, you will want to find other decor to bring your house to the next level. Christmas decor can make your house look fantastic during the day as well as the night.
Nothing says Christmas, December, and the holidays like a wreath. Sometimes all you need is a simple wreath on your door to make your house a source of Christmas spirit. You could also hang wreaths and garland at various points on your property to accent icicle lights. At The Christmas Light Emporium, we sell wreaths and garland that are pre-lit with LED lights as well as more traditional decor.
To really make your decorations stand out, you might consider purchasing projections or yard art. You can get a nativity scene, a sleigh for the roof, or even a singing reindeer for your front yard! All of these things can elevate your decorations to the next level and make your house the talk of the town.
Think of the Future
After all this talk of decorating for Christmas, you might look at the calendar and realize that it is too late to order lights and hang them in time for the 25th of December. Don’t worry if that is the case! You can always order lights for next year and begin planning your decorations now. It is never too late (or too early) to make holiday plans, and the team of elves at The Christmas Light Emporium is always here to help.
