#1: Avoiding White LED Christmas Lights
Many people avoid white Christmas lights because they’re afraid that they’ll have a bluish hue. While the white LED Christmas lights sold years ago did tend to have a soft blue undertone, all of the white Christmas lights in our catalog are guaranteed to have brilliant, pure white tones that only high-quality LEDs can create.
#2: Underestimating Your Needs
It’s easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, and you might find yourself rushing to put up your lights with only a week or two until Christmas Day is here. Before you get online and place an order, take stock of any decorations you currently have, and try to determine exactly what you’ll need to bring your ideas to life. We noted above that we offer free shipping on orders over $149, but the last thing you want is to have to place a second order for something you forgot!
#3: Using Nails, Screws, or Staples
After you’ve purchased your Christmas lights and decorations, it’s time to get to work! You’ll be hanging them from different areas around your home, and while using nails, screws, or staples can seem like a great way to keep your lights in place, it’s a bad idea for several reasons. First and foremost, you’ll damage your roof or siding by using hardware to attach your lights, but you’ll also run the risk of damaging the lights themselves. Moreover, you could fray the wires and potentially cause a fire. Use our Christmas light clips instead!
#4: Forgetting About Your Trees and Bushes
You’ve purchased LED Christmas lights for various places around your home, but did you buy enough to cover your trees and bushes? Lighting up the trees and bushes around your home is a great way to boost your property’s Christmas cheer, and it’s also ideal for people who are uncomfortable getting on the roof.
#5: Buying From Big-Box Suppliers
At The Christmas Light Emporium, we believe that you and your home deserve the best of the best. Many of the most popular Christmas light retailers cut corners and order less-than-ideal products to maximize their profits, but we’re proud to say that our priorities are different. We value each and every one of our customers, and our mission is to provide you with products that will last for decades to come. Instead of purchasing your Christmas lights and decorations from a big-box retailer, shop for professional-grade supplies from The Christmas Light Emporium!
