Christmas lights are key for adding a touch of extra sparkle to festive proceedings. From twinkling LED lights on the tree to larger teardrop bulbs illuminating the porch, the right lighting plays such an integral role in setting the scene for Christmas cheer. Are switched on to the power of lights? With a growing wealth of designs to choose from, firstly consider how you wish to use lighting to enhance your home over the festive period? If  you’re looking to create an ambient glow choose the warmer copper coloured LED lights that seem to be coming through in more and more lighting collections – in stark contrast to the cooler tones of white bulbs from previous years. These are so versatile, perfect to dress the tree or drape across a mantelpiece. For creating a statement try industrial inspired light-up letters that spell out seasonal greetings and illuminated signs, the use of letters and words are another key trend for this seasons lighting. If you’re simply looking to outshine the neighbours opt for a statuesque illuminated reindeer or a set of beaming cluster lights. Indoor or out, be inspired by our pick of the best Christmas lights to brighten up your home.
