Types of lighting
Getting the right design of lighting is essential in creating a welcoming atmosphere in your home. Therefore, it is vital to understand what types of fairy lights are available for you buy. Here’s a short breakdown of the most common lighting types & their pros & cons:
- Incandescent bulbsIncandescent bulbs are much brighter and cheaper than LED bulbs and offer much more bulbs per strand than their cousins. This means that they emit a much more intense glow and are perfect for people who want to create a more vibrant atmosphere. Please bear in mind, however, that incandescent bulbs get warm rather quickly. If not checked regularly, they can pose a serious fire risk.
- LED bulbsLED lights are an efficient alternative to incandescent bulbs (use up to 75% less energy) and pose less of a fire risk, since they since they don't emit as much heat. This makes them particularly good for natural Christmas trees, wreaths & garlands. LED lights are incredibly versatile. They come in a wide variety of styles that can match many interior designs, but lack the power and intensity of more traditional lighting – and are generally more expensive than their counterparts.
- Novelty ornamentsThe lights most commonly associated with the yuletide are those used for the tree and outdoor areas. However, you can find plenty of novelty lights & ornaments such as funky elves, retro bulbs or snow globes, that add an extra dimension to your décor. Particularly for your garden & entrance way, ornaments such as sleighs, presents and figurines (reindeers & Santa to name a couple) give your home character and provide a welcoming feel to your outdoor area.
- CandlesThe rise in popularity of artificial trees means some of the smells traditionally associated with Christmas have disappeared. The best way to reintroduce them into your home - and of course an atmospheric glow to your living space are candles. Despite a possible fire risk and potential messiness of wax, they appeal to your senses so much more, particularly if they are infused with festive fragrances, such as cinnamon and orange.
