Get New Christmas Lights For 2022

One of the most exciting things about the holiday season is decorating your house with colorful Christmas lights. But even if you were to replace your current lights with new ones this year, you’re still looking at only a two-year window before you have to do it all over again! That’s why we’ve compiled some helpful insights on how to get new Christmas lights for 2022.

Of course, Christmas lights are available in every color, design, and pattern imaginable. But if you really want to make an impression at the end of the year, you will have to go beyond the standard designs available on the market. 

Here are the five most important factors to consider when getting new Christmas lights:

1. Color

Color is one of the most important factors to consider when getting new Christmas lights. The most popular colors are red, white, and green, followed by ambers and blues. But why not go beyond the traditional and choose a more eye-catching clear such as subtle electric purple or bold neon green? Depending on the other decorations you put up, you can make just about any color work for you.

2. Bulb type 

People have traditionally preferred incandescent light bulbs for their Christmas lights for years. These bulbs are very bright and provide a pleasant glow to your tree or windows at night. 

But today, there are a growing number of options for Christmas lights that use different light bulbs. These include LEDs, which are more efficient and cost less than incandescent bulbs, and CFLs, which also use less electricity and provide a softer light than LEDs. Nowadays, halogen bulbs are also a popular option.

3. Size

Like many other aspects of holiday decorating, the ideal size of Christmas lights depends largely on your personal preference. However, you have to consider how well your selection fits your home design or holiday décor. Smaller lights can get lost in a busy design, and big lights can make an otherwise small space look full or crowded, so choose wisely.

4. Power 

Electric lights have long been the standard, but there are many options in battery-powered lights available these days. Each has benefits and drawbacks, so figure out which conforms to your creative vision while considering the practical aspect. If you prefer not to have wires draped all over your tree, look into battery-powered LED lights that provide convenient, worry-free operation. 

5. Intensity 

As with any other decorative lighting, intensity plays a big part in how your lights affect the rest of your holiday décor. Nowadays, Christmas lights come in different intensities, so you have more options to plan out your interior as you wish. Our advice is to plan it out so that every part of your tree is illuminated equally. 

As you can see, getting new Christmas lights for 2022 just got a whole lot easier. Consider these tips when shopping for your Christmas lights this year to ensure you have the right lights to prepare you for the coming year!

When should I buy Christmas lights?

One of the most common questions that we hear this time of year is: “When should I buy Christmas lights?” To put it simply, you should buy your Christmas lights as early as possible.

If you haven’t gotten your lights by Halloween, you might find fewer options. For many people, the Christmas season begins in late November, so you want to make sure to start looking around before then. Some people even put up Christmas lights as early as October. By the time you decide to shop for Christmas lights, it might be too late.

It’s always a good idea to have a plan when shopping for lights. If you know ahead of time what type of lights you need and how many, you will spare yourself a lot of stress and indecision later on. Planning your design also helps ensure that you get what you need to realize your creative vision. 

It’s also important to consider how much time and effort you’re willing to put into creating your Christmas lighting display. If you want your holiday decorations to look extra special, consider hiring a professional to do your decorating.

We hope that these tips will be helpful for you. If you need help finding your favorite Christmas lights for 2022, give us a call, and we’ll be happy to help!
