As we approach the holiday season, you may be formulating a plan on how you want to decorate your home and when you are going to hang Christmas lights or other holiday lights. While not all homeowners put multiple hours into decorating their homes with thousands of lights and holiday characters, any holiday decoration can bring joy to your community. If you are someone who likes to elevate your decor from year to year, there are some tips you can implement to wow your community.
No matter what holiday you are decorating for, having professional LED lights installed in your home can save you time and money. Professionally installed lights save a homeowner from having to climb on their roof and deal with flimsy light clips. Professional holiday lights can help take your home display to the next level.
1- Use Designs And Music From Nostalgic Holiday Classics
If you are not sure where to start when creating a holiday display, it can be helpful to draw inspiration from classic movies, music, and characters. Whether it’s Frosty The Snowman, A Christmas Carol, The Grinch, etc. these movies can help bring some inspiration for colors or actual character displays.
Including Christmas or other holiday classics will bring nostalgia to your neighbors and others who may drive past your home. Easily recognizable characters are a great way to draw in the community with your holiday lights. Using your creativity will also help make your home look different from others who may have decided to include major holiday lights around their home. Use your favorite colors, characters, and layouts to make your home stand out.
2- Keep You And Others Safety In Mind
Although it may be tempting to go big when decorating your home, you will need to keep yourself, your family, and visitors safe. In order to do this, you need to make sure that your electrical is set up to handle multiple strands of lights, inflatable objects, music, and more. Plugging lights into outlets that are equipped with ground fault circuit interrupters will shut down the circuit if it becomes overloaded.
Large displays may require you to install additional circuits to help power your home electricity as well as the holiday lights. When in doubt, take the advice of an electrician or have them install safety mechanisms to avoid fire or explosions.
Another way to keep your home safe is to have clean windows, gutters, and roofs. Removing excess debris will make the installation of lights much easier, prevent home fires, and prevent distractions from your lights. Jacob’s Ladder offers window cleaning in addition to holiday lighting installation. Cleaning your home before the holidays can give your home an upgraded look.
3- Include Neon Or Nontraditional Light Colors
Warm lighting is the most common option used for holiday light displays, but using neon-colored bulbs, including nontraditional Christmas colors, or lights of all one color will help your home stand out from the crowd.
Using a lot of small lights around your home may do the trick, but including bigger bulbs like C& or C9 bulbs will make a more prominent statement. Using larger bulbs will help create a brighter display and help the light break through trees or shrubs in your yard. Using high-quality lights will help ensure that your display keeps shining all season long, despite any extreme weather or how much electricity you are using.

Having LED holiday lights installed from Jacob’s Ladder will give you multiple benefits for your home. LED lights are made with plastic, which makes them more durable than glass bulbs that can shatter in the winter or break in freezing temperatures. These lights also draw less electricity than other bulbs. This will lower your electricity bills and allow you to increase the number of lights on your home.
Professional holiday lights also save you the hassle of removing the lights every year and putting them back up before the Christmas season.
