Top 5 Freakishly Easy Halloween Lighting Tips and Tricks For Your Home
Are you ready to get a little spooky this Halloween? One way you can make your home more appealing to your neighborhood is to add some lighting. Adding lighting, however, doesn’t have to be tricky. Here are the top 5 easy Halloween lighting tips and tricks for your home.
Light Your Pathways
When decorating for Halloween, keep safety top of mind. Not only can additional yard lighting draw more trick or treaters to your home, but it can also create a safer environment for those that do. Avoid unneccessary slips and falls with some landscape lighting!
Make Your Outdoor Lighting Look “Haunted”
One easy way to spruce up your yard is to make your existing lighting look haunted. Homeowners can achieve this by placing whipsy fabric over your connecting lights outside to give them an eery appearance. To prevent a fire, however, make sure you don’t place the fabric directly onto a lightbulb.
Halloween brings out all the candy and cute costumes, but it can also bring out some late-night mischief. That being said, security lighting is a great option to deter such shenanigans. Not only is security lighting beneficial to have for a holiday like Halloween, but it is also good to have in general. Have your local electrician install some motion sensor lighting for you today.
Alternative Lighting Options
Candles inside pumpkins is popular for outdoor decoration – and for obvious reasons. The natural flickering of the flame offers a spooky effect. However, any time there is an open flame, there is risk of fire. To avoid a fire hazard, try using electronic candles and flickering lights. These can provide the same effect as a candle without the fire risk.
Use Black Lights
Kids love the creepy effect of black lights this time of year. If you’re looking to make your home decorations a little spookier this Halloween, consider using black lights. They are easy to install and you can even switch out your existing lights for that black light effect – temporarily, of course. If you do this, however, we recommend you use LED bulbs as they tend to not overheat as quickly as standard, incandescent lightbulbs do.
