Decorating your home can be a fun and creative challenge. And if you want to make your home the talk of the neighbourhood this holiday season, we’re here to help. Here are some quick tips on how to light up your home for the holidays so you can maximize your curb appeal for the winter.
Highlight Your Architecture
The best way to start your decorating process is to focus on highlighting the architectural features of your home’s exterior. Whether it’s an archway, the chimney, your roof, or other details, focus on placing lights to outline these areas. This can be more effective and eye-catching than attempting to cover your entire exterior in lights.
Highlight Landscape Features
Many homeowners often forget to incorporate their landscape into their decorating process, but it has so much to offer when it comes to decorating. To showcase elements of your front yard, consider stringing lights along with shrubs, evergreens, an outdoor sculpture or even along your walkway leading to your front porch. This will make your home look warm, welcoming, and beautiful during the dark winter nights.
Think About the Colours
Colour lights are more popular than ever these days, and whatever your preference may be, you can find ample varieties of colour combinations to choose from. If you prefer a burst of colour, try to stick with a particular theme, like the classic red, white, and green or another combination that works well together. Throwing a cluster of different colours together can end up looking messy and chaotic. Of course, the classic all-white theme is also an elegant look to sport for the exterior. If you prefer that route, add a few splashes of colour to the mix, like red bows and evergreens to create some contrast.
Beyond the lights, you can get even more creative with decorative features for your home and garden. Consider adding evergreen wreaths, colourful ribbons, holidays themed planters near the entranceway, lanterns on the porch or even a fun illuminated Santa and reindeer display if you have kids.
