If you are a big fan of the holidays, now is the time to get up-to-date on the latest holiday lighting trends for 2019 so that you can create a stunning display that will impress your family and your neighbors. In recent years, new technology and design innovations have influenced holiday lighting and provided consumers with more options and ways to get creative with lighting. Looking forward to this holiday season, here are some lighting trends you might want to take advantage of:
Warm Golden Lights
You might remember a time when large colored bulbs were the standard for holiday lighting. Eventually, white lights became a popular alternative, but even these could put out a harsh light. For 2019, holiday lights emit a warm, golden color. This inviting light is softer than white options and will give your home a welcoming glow.
Moving lights will be all the rage for 2019. Technology has made it easier and more affordable to create animated lighting that can bring different figures and displays to life. Whether it is a lighted reindeer that can move or displays that blink along with Christmas music, holiday lights are becoming less static and more interactive.
App Controlled Lights
Timers eliminated the need to physically plug in and turn off holiday lights, but light controls have become even more advanced. You can now control your lights using apps on your phone. With smart home technology, you can remotely and wirelessly program and control your lights with a few taps on your phone. This trend not only adds convenience, but can help your reduce utility bills.
Retro LED String Lights
For those who still feel nostalgic about the brightly colored string lights from their childhood, newer LED versions will allow you to create a retro-style display without emitting a lot of heat and running up utility bills. If golden lights seem too dull and monochromatic, there will be plenty of colorful options on the market for 2019.
Don’t want to mess around with installing, maintaining and taking down holiday lights? Projector lights and displays remove all the work and allow you to cover your entire home in holiday decorations. You can choose between snowflakes, red and green twinkles and other lights schemes. The projector is simply placed in your yard and uses your home as a sort of display screen. Creating a holiday display couldn’t be easier.
While most people associate holiday lights with strands and icicle lights, for 2019, you will be seeing more LED star and lamps that can be hung from porches and trees to create a soft glow. These decorations add a sophisticated ambience and a unique look.
Holiday lighting trends for 2019 will allow you to express your personal style. Whether you want a more contemporary look or you prefer a retro-style holiday display, there are plenty of options on the market this year.
