Traditional lighting

Lights come in three colour variations - warm white, bright white and coloured. Warm white lights look very golden whereas bright white lights have a blue undertone and coloured lights are either multicoloured or come in one shade.

Holly jolly lighting hacks

  • Wrap your lights round a coat hanger to prevent them from turning into a tangled mess.
  • Remember to plug in before you put up to test all the bulbs work.
  • Net lighting is great if you want outdoor lights without the effort of putting them up. Fix them to the inside of your window so you don’t even need to venture outside.
  • Don’t be caught short! Make sure to measure where you plan to hang your lights, and the distance from there to the plug socket, so you know exactly which length to buy.
  • There’s no need to leave your lights on all night. Invest in a timer so you don’t get a hefty energy bill.

Handy little helpers

Step into Christmas

For securing lights in high areas, you'll need a ladder. Make sure you have another person with you when doing this, so they can hold the ladder steady if necessary.

Fix up, look sharp

To fix your lights or decs to your house, fittings will need to be purchased separately. We recommend suction hooks for windows, cup hooks for walls and specialist gutter hooks for gutters.

Big up batteries

Battery powered lights are the easiest to operate outdoors as you don’t have to worry about reaching sockets.

Bright ideas

For mains powered, either use an indoor socket, making sure cables can easily go through windows and doors and are thin enough so they can be closed after, or, use a weatherproof outdoor socket.

Safety tips

  • Don't leave Christmas lights running when you go to bed at night, or when you leave the house. Use a timer or smart plug so they're only on when you'll enjoy them the most.
  • Don't use tacks, nails or screws to hang lights, which can pierce the cable and become electrified. Use insulated hooks instead.
  • If bulbs have burned out, replace them right away, but make sure you use the correct wattage bulbs. You don't want them blowing a fuse or your lighting looking patchy.
