5 Last Minute Lighting Tips for the Holiday Season

Posted on Posted in Christmas, Christmas Decorations, Christmas Lighting

Sometimes during the holidays, life can get a little crazy. In those situations, you might be decorating your house a little bit late – and that’s okay.

For more information on how you can have a professional team of light experts decorate your house for the holidays, contact your local lighting company for pricing and design ideas.

In the meantime, here are a couple of lighting tips for those of you who may have had to wait until the last minute to deck your house with lights this season.

Forget about the roof.

Climbing up on the roof and wrapping the trim of your house in lights is the most difficult part of decorating the house. Not only do you have to make sure the lines are correct and everything is symmetrical – but it takes a lot of time because it’s dangerous and you have to move slowly.

If you’re last minute decorating this Christmas, forget about the lights on the roof. There are so many other lighting techniques that you can apply for house decorations that don’t involve climbing on this icy surface.

Consider wrapping banisters if you have any.

If you have any outside decking, banisters or railings in the front of your house, consider wrapping them with lights and maybe some pine lines for a beautiful natural looking Christmas decoration.

This is easy to do, as it doesn’t take much time to twist lights around a bannister. You don’t have to be meticulous with the symmetry of this decoration, as this design is a bit more forgiving.

Lights in the windows are a great way to replace house-wrapped lighting.

If you don’t have time to put any lights on the outside of your house this season, you can decorate from the inside using the windows. Candles lit in the center of the windows is a favorite during Christmas time, and decorating the trim of the windows on the inside can bring a pop of color to the outside as well.

Use lights on the inside of the windows.

When you use lights on the inside of the windows, you can see the trim of the lighting from the outside. Professional Christmas light companies will be able to help you choose a design, and wrap the lights on the inside of the windows so you can see them on both the inside and the outside.

Use one or two lawn decorations.

Instead of just focusing on the house, consider using one or two light-up lawn decorations to bring a bit of Christmas cheer to your home last-minute this holiday season.

Some light-up reindeer are popular choices, and others include blow-up santas, Christmas trees, snowmen and many other decorations in which you can incorporate lights and Christmas decorations this season.
