Christmas time is a wonderful season when many people decorate their houses with beautiful Christmas tree lights. One of our family traditions is to walk around our neighborhood, seeing how our neighbors are showcasing their holiday arrangements. However you don't have to save your Christmas tree lights for the holiday season alone. They're a fantastic addition to your home decor all year round, especially as a sparkling addition to a summertime patio, arbor or gateway.
Many design magazines and television shows, such as the ones featured in magazines such as Style at Home showcase a variety of ways you can use Christmas tree lights in your everyday decor, you can see some examples here. During the summer it's a great idea to string your lights outside your patio or a deck, to get that mythical look for a late summer night BBQ. Lights, such as rope lights, can be added with ease to trail along a porch or a railing. These look sweet in basic white but also look nice in an array of colors that you can choose for your design. Furthermore, they have different settings such as blinking or chasing lights which you can use to suit your mood.
For indoor decorations Christmas tree lights can look especially great when they are hanging behind see-through curtains. That way when you plug them in, you will be able to illuminate the whole window, and add that nice cheer to your home. Alternatively, Christmas lights can be used to wrap around a larger decorative object in your home. This way you can easily create a focal point in your house, and guide your visitors’ eyes to what you want them to see which is, of course, your impeccable taste and creativity.
There are so many ways to decorate with Christmas tree lights, so don't just save them for the holiday season anymore.
