Why Should You Consider Permanent Light Installation?
1. Saves You a Lot of Time
As we mentioned before, putting up holiday lights is a labor-intensive task. You have to devote a lot of time putting up these lights and taking them down. Of course, this is on top of everything else you have to do during this time of year. But this can be resolved if you have permanent lights installed. All it takes is one time installation and you’ll have lights around your home for years to come. You’ll no longer have to spend time putting lights up and down every year. This one-time installation is made especially easier if you hire an electrician to take care of this.
2. Improves Your Home’s Value
A huge benefit that comes with installing permanent lights on your home is the significant increase in your home’s value. This improvement can be especially helpful if you are planning to sell your property in the next couple of years. Most buyers love properties with permanent lighting because it can be very convenient and safe for them. All they have to do is flip a switch a couple of times a year.
3.Creates Extra Security for Your Home
It is widely recommended for you to have a well-lit environment or landscape around your home, so you can improve the security of your home. You can reduce any dim areas in your property, so no intruder can find a soft spot in your security. Permanent lighting can help prevent any vandalism or trespassing activities from occurring in your home. Additionally, your neighbors will also have the ability to spot any suspicious activities on your property. So, overall, the investment of permanent holiday lighting can reduce the risks your home may face.
Popular Designs for Holiday Lighting
Lighted Roof Lines
You can line your roof and other parts of your home, such as window casings, with a string of holiday lights. Such an impressive outline can accentuate your home’s architecture. Overall, it can give your home a classy and elegant look.
If your home has pillars, you can wrap your holiday lights around them. Pillars enhanced with lights can add lines and vertical dimension to your exterior design. Again, this can add a sophisticated element to your home year-round.
If you’re going for a more subtle look than this may be the design for you. While lights can be a spectacular display, their power sources can be an eyesore. If your home features a lipped eave or overhang, you can use it to cover up light cords. Run hooks or nails along the back of the overhang, then tuck the cord behind so that only the bulbs peek out just beneath the edge.
