When the holiday season is over, it can be a little bit upsetting when it gets to the point when you have to take down your decorations, so what if there was a way that you could make use of them all year round? When it comes to your lights, there’s no issue with this at all, and with a little bit of creativity, you could be using them to light up your home all year long without them looking out of place. Here’s how.
3 Under the Bed
If you want to make your room appear more inviting, one of the best things you can do is throw a little bit of light under your bed, and Christmas lights are perfect for this. A warm glow under the bed will disperse throughout the whole room creating the impression of heat, turning your bed into a cosy nest-like space. The best thing about this idea is that it allows you to store your lights in a space where they’re not visible, and this means they don’t have to be neat – a straightforward yet charming solution.
2 Around the Ceiling
If you have a room in your house which has wood beams, you could use your Christmas lights to really maximize the feature and draw attention to it. For one thing, your lights will be easy to put in place because you can just pin them into the wood. A great benefit to this is that there’s bound to be dark spots on your ceiling because of the beams, so the lights will illuminate these spaces, preventing your ceiling from looking low or dingy.
1 Light the Way
The main place you’re bound to have Christmas lights is outside, and the great news is that this doesn’t need to dismantle them just because Christmas is over. Instead, you should use them as guiding lights to help assist guests who are visiting at night when it’s dark. Many people have lights outside, but why buy extra ones when your Christmas lights are already up and are perfect for the job? All you need to do is take them out of your trees and from your house and place them along your walkways or in spots where extra light might be potentially useful and you have an elegant guidance system.
