Want the secret to having the best-lit house on the block? It’s all about getting the right mix. Here’s how:
Start with path lights. Work your way from the ground up, illuminating bushes, trees, windows, doors, and the roofline.
Pick a focal point. Deck it out with a variety of lights. String lights, a shining wreath, glimmering packages, and a friendly snowman draw the eye to the door.
Blanket bushes. Net lights provide consistent coverage.
Combine lights. Mix multicolor, single-color, and white lights for a balanced look.
Leave a light in the window. Hang wreaths on windows along with flickering candles for a subtle glow.
Play up your home’s features, such as a bay window, with icicle lights.
Warm Up Walkways
Take advantage of shimmering path lights and stakes to give your Christmas scene depth.
Trim Tree Trunks
Light the trunk and branches of deciduous trees. Start at the bottom and spiral the lights around. Use single-color strands for a design wallop.
