LED vs. Incandescent Lights

LED and incandescent bulbs are available in a variety of shapes and colors and work wonderfully as outdoor Christmas lights.

Incandescent lights offer a warm glow, and they are cheaper than LEDs. That said, LED lights use less energy, and they burn at low temperatures. LEDs are also durable, lasting up to 10,000 hours.

So if you want to save money and reduce energy consumption with your Christmas lighting, LEDs are an excellent option. These lighting products are available in both warm- and cool-glow varieties.

Types Of Outdoor Christmas Lights

Depending on your décor, color, and energy requirements, you can choose from a range of exterior light fixtures for the holiday season. Your options include:

  • String/Net/Rope Lights

These come with small lights, and you can wrap them around your tree, drape them across shrubs or structures, or outline doorways, windows, fences, and walkways, etc. You can choose simple string lights or go for more intricate shapes and designs. Multi-colored or color-changing lights are also viable choices.

  • Icicle Lights

You can give your home a Christmasy feel by lining your entrance with icicle lights that provide a snow-covered appearance.

  • Projection Lights

An alternative to string lights, projection lights can be plugged into a nearby outlet to project colors, patterns, or animations on outdoor trees or walls.

  • Battery Powered Lights

Don’t have a power source nearby? You can purchase battery-operated Christmas lights. By eliminating cords, these lights also create safety outdoors, especially for children.

  • Large-Bulb Lights

Large bulb lights create a retro feel, which is a perfect addition to your holiday decorations. These lighting products come in C5, C7, C9, G40, and G50 classifications, each offering a unique visual impact.

  • Pathway Lights

These lights also add a functional aspect to your Christmas lighting by helping visitors navigate your walkway and driveway.

  • Lamps

Finally, lamp fixtures can also be decorated on Christmas. If you have lamps outside your home in Grapevine, TX, consider Maven Lighting‘s RGBW MR16 lights.

These lighting solutions instantly add color to your landscape, and you can change their color via Bluetooth or the color splash app.

Even if you don’t have lamp fixtures on your property, our team can come and install them for you. That way, you will have colorful exterior light fixtures year-round!
