According to the United States Census Bureau, America imported $499.4 million of Christmas lights in 2018. If you’ve traditionally been the type to purchase and install lights manually, you’re in good company. However, as the holiday season cycles back around, it all begs the question – do you really want light installations to be on your to-do list every year?
If you’re interested in taking the outdoor light decorations off of your annual checklist, then you’ll definitely want to keep reading. Here are 3 really good reasons why it might make more sense to go for permanent professional holiday lighting this year.
Quickly and Easily Become “That House”
You know this house. You’ve seen this house. Maybe in Christmases past, you’ve been in this house. That one house on the block that everyone drives past during the holiday season because their Christmas display looks incredible every year.
With professionally-installed holiday lights, you can be the envy of your block with very little effort. So much so that depending on the system, you may be able to create an eye-catching and impressive display with just the push of a button.
Declutter Your Storage
It’s crazy how despite only being used once a year at most, Christmas decorations can take up surprisingly large amounts of storage space.
Sure, a few boxes here and there might not seem like a big deal at first. But when you’re looking for items in the middle of summer, that set of Christmas lights beside the tree decorations can prevent you from finding what you’re looking for.
In a Current Psychology article that was published in 2018, clutter was associated with increased dissatisfaction in life for older adults.
If that sounds like you, a professional holiday light installation may be able to help set your mind at ease. Because these lights are permanent, you don’t have to worry about them sitting in storage closets or taking up space in your garage. They’ll be in use every day of the year.
Keep a Classy Year-Round Display
Raise your hand if you or someone you know has kept their lights up beyond the holiday season before. It happens.
After the festivities are over and you’re back in the swing of things, you’ve got work obligations, family obligations, and tons of other little projects that are all demanding your time. For many people, taking down the outdoor lights is one of the last things on your to-do list.
If you opt for professional lighting, there’s an easy alternative to taking the lights down – you can keep the lights up while changing to a more neutral color pattern. This in turn makes it possible to take a step back from the bright holiday lights while also giving your house a slightly more elegant appearance.
When you’ve spent your whole life following the usual holiday routine, it can be easy to assume that there are no options for installing Christmas lights that don’t involve some form of hard labor.
The holiday season is incredibly busy for most of us. Permanent professional lighting can help you free up some of your time. If you’re tired of having to unpack, unravel, and install lights every Christmas season, this is an option that could be well worth taking the time to explore.
