Guide to Indoor Christmas Lighting

It’s time to untangle your Christmas lights and turn the interior of your home into a beautiful festive wonderland! Whether you’re looking for advice on how to style your existing lights, see what styles of lights are out there, or want to go wild with your illuminations this year, keep reading to discover a world of indoor festive lighting.

Animated Lighting

The phrase Animated Lighting often refers to twinkling or unique light patterns rather than animated models, although these exist too. Animated lights come in many shapes and sizes with Christmas models being incredibly popular thanks to their versatility when it comes to interior decorating as they can be easily placed on a table or shelf. From traditional Christmas emblems such as snowflakes to reindeer, to elegant advent candles and candle bridges, these lights are suited to most homes.

If models aren’t your thing, there are also plenty of string lights with different light patterns that will look spectacular wrapped around your Christmas tree, hung in windows, or elegantly draped across your walls. If you’re looking for festive decorations for your walls then wall hangings and window lights come in a myriad of fun and festive colours that flash, pulse, and twinkle to make your home feel like magic whilst still being seen from outside.

Wall and Window Lights

These decorative lights are perfect for adorning bare spaces on your walls and in your windows. Often having a flat base so they fit comfortably against your walls, these vary in design from modern to vintage Christmas lights. Hearts, stars, and Christmas characters are all common options and make wonderful alternatives to traditional string lights.

Christmas window lights have the additional benefit of being able to decorate both indoors and outdoors at the same time. Whilst you’re hanging them from the inside, once it gets dark, these lights are a beautiful accent piece from the outside too, meaning it’s not just you who gets to enjoy them!

String Lights

A classic for a reason, string lights have never fallen from favour thanks to their versatility and simplicity. Often seen wrapped around the branches of your Christmas tree in the form of LED tree lights, these festive lights and micro lights can be used almost anywhere around the home.

Wrapped around your bannisters, wound around mirrors, or strung around doorframes, the length of string lights and their colours vary to suit your needs and own decorating style. Though icicle lights are one of the most chosen designs, you can also have fun with your string lights by hanging something more unique.

Figures, Scenes, and Novelty Lights

Injecting fun and colour into your home with their bold and bright designs, novelty lights and scenes are another variety of lights that can feature moving elements, contemporary and traditional designs, and can be placed almost anywhere around your space.

Choose between lights that already depict a festive scene like the Musical Village or create your own indoor scene with a tall lantern that will add dynamic style to your Christmas interior. Figures and novelty lights tend to cross with animated lights and wall lights, meaning you get the best of all the most popular light forms in one gorgeous Christmas decoration.

However you decide to use lights in your home this Christmas, you're sure to find the perfect fit for your theme and own personal style.
