Christmas is such a magical, fun time in Vancouver to get in the spirit of celebrating and spending time with your loved ones. However, the holiday season takes a lot of planning to get everything to look exactly right. That’s why we’ve put together the ultimate guide to help you plan out your Christmas light installations in Vancouver this year.
#1 Examine Your Home’s Exterior
This is one of the most important steps to planning your Christmas decorations correctly. Before you begin to discuss your outdoor Christmas lights ideas, installation tips, or types of lights you’re thinking of using, you need to familiarize yourself with the exterior of your home.
Take a look at your home from afar. Cross over to the other side of the street if it’s safe to do so and look at your entire home. See where your trees line up, where you have space to work with, and which areas are off-limits. Count the number of trees, bushes, hedges, and fences that surround your home, and get a good look at your roof lines and pillars. Examine your porch and front door, and lastly, look for exterior plug outlets. Finding out how many exterior outlets you have in advance will help you avoid any unexpected complications during installation.
#2 Choose Your Christmas Lights and Finalize Your Plan
This is the most fun part of the process. Now that you have a good idea of what your space looks like and where you can hang your Christmas lights, it’s time to look into the type of decor you really want.
Do you have an idea of a theme or colour of lights to use? Well, now it’s time to put it on paper. Incorporate a digital image of your home’s exterior into the plan outline and start taking notes on the size of your roof, pillars, porch, hedges, bushes, and other areas you want to hang your Christmas lights. Once you have your plan written out, look up Christmas light installation ideas and images online, and find the style that suits your home the most.
