Outdoor Christmas Decorations Buyer’s Guide
Christmas decorations come in a huge range of designs and styles so it’s easy to find just the right one for your Christmas theme. Whether you like classy or colourful there are plenty of decorations to choose from.
Outdoor lights and decorations have become very popular, too and you can choose from a simple string of lights to decorate your house or a tree to a more elaborate panorama of Santas, snowmen and reindeer.
Indoors the variety is even more varied from old-style lampposts, pretty beribboned parcels and various characters from Santas to snowmen. Indoor decorations range from the modern to the kitsch to the traditional so there is plenty to suit any style and theme.
Many of the best Christmas decorations feature lights, and these do add a lovely Christmassy glow to the festivities. You can choose from brightly coloured lights to warm or cool white lights. Warm white lights suit a traditional theme and create a lovely atmospheric glow. Cool white lights look great in a modern scheme or to create the appearance of snow or icicles. Many decorations come pre-decorated with lights, so they are super easy to set up.
You should always choose low voltage Christmas lights for safety. If you are using your lights outdoors you must check that they have suitable waterproof ratings.
The best Christmas decorations use energy-efficient LED lights. LED bulbs are up to 90% more efficient than incandescent bulbs. They are longer-lasting, too, with the average LED bulb lasting for 4,000 hours of use before burning out. So, even if your entire house is aglow you shouldn’t see much of a difference in your electricity bill!
Christmas decorations are a key part of getting into the Christmas spirit and with such a great range to choose from it’s easy to find the perfect decoration for your scheme. Personally, I love the Kingfisher Indoor Square Snowman Christmas Light Figure Decoration as it is classy yet bright and cheerful and suits a modern or traditional theme.
