Focus on Color

One of the best parts of holiday lighting is the colors! We as humans love color, and if you think about the world being only in black and white, it's easy to see why. When thinking about how to add color to your indoor and outdoor lighting, consider colored light bulbs. Light bulbs will fit into any type of lighting fixture, including wall sconces, outdoor lanterns, and front porch lighting. Try this idea this holiday season.

Choose Warm Lighting Temperatures

Many people don't realize that lighting has a temperature, based on the type of light bulb that you purchase. This is easy to understand when you think about the bright lights of hospital rooms versus the soft lighting of home libraries and dens. Create a warm and inviting atmosphere with warm lighting temperatures for your light bulbs (anything 3000k or lower). Swap your bulbs today.

Invest in Lamps

There's something about lamps that many people love. Oftentimes, as a child, you had a room lamp in a cute, whimsical shape, such as a dinosaur or a princess, that you adored. Lamps come in so many different styles, finishes, and sizes that you can find the perfect one for your space. This holiday season, consider a holiday-themed lamp in a favorite space to add cheer to your life and to the life of your guests, too.

Hang String Lights

String lights are one of the most popular types of lighting because of their versatility. You can hang them on your fence in your backyard and create a wonderful sitting area. Hang in your living room to provide ambient lighting while you watch TV. Or, for the holiday season, invest in colored hanging string lights that you can add to any space to immediately craft a festive air.
