What’s New in Holiday Lighting Trends?

Holiday lighting trends tend to change every few years. The blow-up lawn ornaments and tangled icicles of last year are giving way to new, sleeker lighting displays that make the most of sound and motion. You’ve probably seen spectacular timed displays on the local news or online. Professional lighting installers can easily create one of these stunning light, music and motion displays for your yard.

Bright colors are also in for outdoor displays. Don’t be afraid to go bold with neon-colored lights this season. In fact, bright, Latin-inspired colors are perfect for many San Antonio homes. Using the natural landscape for lighting inspiration is one of the best ways to ensure that your holiday lights will be classy, not gaudy. You can also use brightly colored lights to highlight any water features that you might have in your yard.

Of course, classic white lights with beautiful green boughs and red bows are always a great choice for exterior decorating. Opt for classic colors when you want to up the elegance of your home or evoke an old-fashioned Christmas feel. Consider using boughs, bows and ribbons to accent your porch and doorway. These elements will tie your yard together and make your guests feel completely at home.
