All Your Christmas Lights

QUESTIONS ANSWERED

LED lights, obviously! Thanks to the many many innovations in technology, we now enjoy the much better LED (aka light-emitting) diode lights in our everyday lives – and the holidays too!

Why are they the best Christmas lights to put on a tree, you ask? 

Well, first off – they’re way safer than putting an open flame near your Christmas tree. Second, they’re incredibly efficient. Compared to standard lights, LED Christmas lights consume much less energy and last much longer in your home. 

And if that wasn’t enough, these Christmas tree lights super easy to set up and style around your tree and your home. 

We have a whole collection of LED connectable lights that you can use to light up your home this Christmas season. There’s everything from classic string lights and cluster lights to icicle lights and even meteor shower lights for you to choose from. 

Whether you have an indoor or outdoor (or both) Christmas tree, it won’t be complete until you hang up those brilliant Christmas lights. They’re the perfect way to give your place that warm and homey Christmas feeling. 

Let your creative juices flow and bring in some festive glow into your home with LED Christmas tree lights!

Generally speaking, it’s more efficient to start at the bottom. Working your way up the tree from the base makes it easier for you to space out your Christmas tree lights. 

On your way to the top, wrap your LED Christmas lights around every major branch and go from there. Don’t forget to fluff up the branches as you go along. 

One nifty trick is to string your LED lights in a zigzag pattern, and doing it section by section. This lets you see right away which parts need some more depth or variety and fix it right away. 

To create depth, you should place some of your Christmas tree lights deeper in the tree, closer to the centre, and some more to the front. 

For a clean look, hide the connectors deep into the branches by the base. You might even want to use a power strip or two to help you out. That way, there won't be random strings of lights stretching across the room to reach the power socket. 

Want to try experimenting a little bit? Mess around with a couple different lighting schemes until you find one you love. Don’t worry about keeping it uniform all around the tree either. Having mix and match lights will add to the festive cheer of your Christmas tree!

Technically speaking, yes. Outdoor Christmas lights are weather and waterproof. That said, it’s still a good idea to keep them in a dry, cool or covered area as much as possible.

The lights themselves are fine to be placed outside. It would, however, be best to plug them in sockets inside your home. This way, you can prevent any serious shocks or accidents altogether. 

With a little bit of TLC and proper storage, you’ll enjoy your outdoor Christmas lights for years to come.

Whether you’ve got a real or an artificial Christmas tree, every tree needs Christmas lights to make it look truly festive. However, getting the right amount of lights can be tricky. Follow our guide to make sure you achieve the look you want.

For a basic look our number one rule is at least 100 bulbs per 1ft of tree – so that would mean a 6ft tree needs a minimum of 600 LEDs. For a fuller look, you can add as many lights as you want but we recommend upwards of 700 for a 6ft tree. How Many Lights Do I Need

Outdoor lights can withstand cold and wet conditions. On the other hand, indoor lights are tested for fire safety to avoid any accidental fires. 

These two types of Christmas lights are certified for either outdoor or indoor use, but not both. 

Why is that? Simply put, indoor lights aren’t moisture-proof or corrosion proof. As soon as there’s heavy rainfall, they’ll stop working right away, putting you at risk for some serious electrical shocks. 

More to the point, outdoor Christmas lights have thicker cabling and weatherproof bulbs. That way, you don’t need to worry about leaving them outside. 

So how can you tell which one is which? 

There will usually be labels on the box or near the plug of your Christmas lights. This will tell you if the lights are certified for outdoor or indoor use only. 

White Stores offers an entire selection of indoor and outdoor Christmas lights. We have a wide range of bulb colours, cable colours, and function. You can also have lights powered by batteries or electricity, with low voltage options to choose from.

Well, you definitely can¸ but it’s not advisable. As with anything using electricity, there’s always going to be a risk in leaving them turned on overnight. 

Lights produce heat as long as they’re on. So whether you’re leaving your Christmas lights on all day or all night, is bound to pose some risks. 

To prevent any accidents, make sure you turn off your Christmas lights before leaving the house or going to bed.
