Putting Christmas lights up and taking them down again can be time-consuming. Nobody likes it when the time comes to take down the lights and you have to pack Christmas away for another year.
LED lighting doesn’t have to be solely for Christmas and this video proves that it can serve a purpose the whole year-round.
In this video from Christmas Designers, we see an outdoor seating area for a restaurant where the lighting is being replaced. The bulbs look fantastic in the wintertime but aren’t so Christmas-sy that they won’t work the rest of the year. This could be a great look for an outdoor pavilion or your own outdoor seating area.
These sorts of lights are definitely best installed somewhere like a gazebo or pergola. One of the purposes of a pergola is to provide a sheltered area. This is where you will probably be spending your time when outdoors, so it is a good idea to add some light.
A pergola also provides a structure on which to mount your LED Christmas lights. A structure like this gives a uniform look to your lighting.
You can also use it on your porch or patio to implement some of these ideas.
In the video here, they have used lights that need a power supply. But, if you are clever with the positioning of your lights, you might be able to use solar lights instead.
Low-energy G30 bulbs are used in this video and we recommend using similar bulbs in your design. Also, make sure you buy some spares. If you are going to keep your LED display up all year-round, it is sensible to have some extra bulbs around, just in case any need replacing.
LED Christmas lighting gives a beautiful twinkle during the festive season, but it is useful and efficient throughout the rest of the year, too.
