Christmas is a special time of the year. Families get together and exchange gifts, spend time together, and make memories. When you are decorating your home for Christmas, you want to find the best way to display your Christmas decor. One way that many people do is to use a 9ft Christmas tree to illuminate their living spaces. If you are going to use a 9ft Christmas tree this year, read on for some great tips about getting the best look possible with this style of tree.
Most people who purchase 9ft Christmas trees have no idea what kind of lights they will need to fill their tree. Most people start out with small, fake-looking bulbs that add no real lighting to the tree. In order to make their 9ft Christmas tree appear more authentic, people often buy white lights that look more like holiday lights than they actually are. These are perfect for indoor use, but they don’t give your tree any character or warmth. The bulbs purchased for these Christmas trees should have lights that look like real, burning Christmas lights.
In order to display your 9ft Christmas trees in the best lighted manner possible, it is imperative that you take extra steps to protect them from the elements. This means that you should use fiber optic lighting in order to illuminate your tree. The reason why fiber optic lighting is so good at providing a realistic light effect is because it uses much less energy than traditional lights. Traditional Christmas trees usually use much higher wattage bulbs. They also use older technology that is much less efficient than the newer light-emitting diodes that you can find today.
Even though the LED lights are becoming extremely popular with indoor lighting, you should still have something on your 9ft Christmas trees that gives off a warm, welcoming glow. One way to accomplish this is to put a “hanging lamp” inside your tree box. These hanging lamps look just like real old fashioned Christmas lights, but they use much less electricity than their LED cousins. Just make sure that the bulb is rated for the amount of light that will be put out by the tree. You don’t want to end up wasting electricity by buying a bulb that won’t hold enough light for your tree.
To get an authentic, warm and inviting glow, you should add some sort of natural or synthetic light source to your tree. This could be artificial lights, natural bush colouring or even some stunning fibre optic Christmas lights. When you are planning the lighting for your 9ft Christmas tree, always take into consideration what kind of effect you want to create. Different rooms in your home will require different types of lighting. The more you know ahead of time, the better prepared you’ll be when it’s time to buy your fibre optic Christmas lights.
The most basic lighting system for a 9ft Christmas tree consists of two bulbs, a common white bulb plus one that is slightly brighter. Depending on the amount of light that you need, you can change the wattage of the bulbs. The brighter bulb is typically put in the center. Bulbs in between can be installed anywhere along the tree trunk, as long as they are facing upwards. If you want some variety in your pre lit Christmas forests, then you could opt for different bulbs or switch the wattage on the bulbs from time to time. It is quite easy to do, so this might be something to consider doing if you don’t want everything to look exactly the same as everyone else’s.
The fibre optic wire is what provides the ‘image’ to your tree and is the thing that actually gives you the beautiful colour of the lights. The wires themselves are relatively thinner than traditional wires and are also available in different colours. Some of these wires are also available in the shape of stars, snowmen and angels, which create a wonderful effect for your tree. Always make sure that you are buying the right size of wire to go with the size of your tree.
When it comes to buying fibre optic lights for your tree, always make sure that you buy a brand you can trust. There are some companies that produce lights that won’t light up as well as others and this is something you need to check before buying. I personally would recommend Energy Star appliances for all of my Christmas trees, no matter what the size, because they are designed to help save the environment and should last a long time.
