1) LED lighting
LED lighting is increasingly popular these days because of how long they last and LED lighting could be the ideal way to brighten up your home for Christmas. An LED Chinese lantern set may not be traditional (unless you’re Chinese) but this is a great way to add light and color to your property. There are also some superb Santa wreaths which feature LED lights which could be ideal for your front door.

2) Chandeliers
To add a little occasion to your festive festivities you could splash out on a chandelier. A classical crystal style design could be the perfect way to add class and light to your home, or maybe a more modern design would suit your property better. If you don’t have a huge amount of money to spend on your lighting you could even create your own DIY version. This can be done with a simple light fitting, some coat hangers or wire and a selection of glass jars. Pieces of mirror will also cast light around your room in a unique way and this is sure to intrigue your party guests.

3) Outdoor lighting

However you will need some lighting so that people can see what they are doing and there are some amazing outdoor lighting options available to allow this and to create a lovely ambience. You can choose between traditional looking lanterns or more sleek, modern bulkhead designs which are very popular at the moment.

4) Fairy lights
It’s just not Christmas without fairy lights. Whether they are strewn all over your tree or along banisters they add an unmistakable festive magic and they are very inexpensive.
