There are a lot of great ways to decorate for winter, and one of those ways that often gets overlooked is residential LED lighting. While plenty of people put up Christmas lights, they might only do that right before the holiday itself and take them back down soon after. If you want to decorate for winter, no matter what holidays during that time you may or may not celebrate, here are some of the best ways to use residential LED lighting to make a statement and get your home and yard noticed.
1). Decorate before winter starts
If you really want a winter-themed LED lighting installation, the time to start putting up lights is before winter actually arrives. When you decorate before the season, you have your lights already in place to “kick off” the first day of winter and the beginning of the season’s celebration. That’s especially important if you have a lot of lights or displays to put up. Getting them up, tested, adjusted, and ready to go can really take a long time, and the sooner you get started the easier it will be. Whether you’re doing it all yourself or having a company install what you need, preparation and good planning can go a very long way toward having the LED lighting display you want for the winter months.
2). Have a plan until spring arrives
Winter can be long, and you might not want to display the same thing for months at a time. With that in mind, one of the best things to do is create a plan before winter arrives. Maybe you want to have a different theme every month, or keeping it neutral most of the time but changing it up for each holiday. Whatever you want to “say” with your residential LED lighting installation, there are ways to make changes to your lights over the course of the winter. Where you live and the kind of weather you have may make changes more difficult, but those changes can still be done if you plan ahead.
3). Decorate more than just the house
Don’t just put lights up on your house. Make your yard and porch or patio sparkle, as well. By doing that, you’ll draw attention to your entire property. That also gives you more room to decorate, so you can put up a larger display or showcase a particular theme that matters to you. Your neighbors may really love seeing your winter LED lighting, and anyone who drives down the street can admire the beauty your house and property offers.
4). Color can make a big difference
The color of your winter LED lights can also make a big difference in how your display looks. You may want to choose cool, winter-based colors like blue and white, and then add pops of color in different locations for each holiday. That can break up your display and keep it from looking the same all winter long, but also keeps a great theme going until spring arrives and it’s time to take down the lights or change them for something new.
