It’s almost Christmas, which means it’s time to organise your festive home décor. While many of us have decorations which we use year after year, lighting is one area which continually benefits from a refresh – here are a few of our top tips for selecting the best festive lighting in 2020 and beyond.

Focus on the design

There are some iconic images which instantly make us think of Christmas, and at Nordic Lights we have condensed some of these down into our festive product range for 2020. Our collection is constantly being renewed, but this year we have gone above and beyond to create designs which are decorative, playful and collectable, too!

Some of our favourites include our range of candle shades, which provide a stunning festive glow while displaying images of reindeer, snowmen and Santa.

Build the right atmosphere

Christmas is all about creating that ideal cosy festive atmosphere, so think of how your home will ‘feel’ as much as how it’ll look. Warm lighting is often better than colder lights – focus on yellow tones which draw the eye and look fantastic on chilly winter days.

Creating these atmospherics is a great way to ensure visitors to your home feel welcome – and a wonderful trick for getting everyone into the Christmas spirit.

Highlight key features

There are certain areas of your home which you’ll want to illuminate this Christmas – commonly these include your Christmas tree, or perhaps the outside of your property.

Traditional Christmas lights should never be overlooked, but adding a unique new spin by using soft candle shades on the mantlepiece, or as a wonderful festive centrepiece over your dinner table, bring a contemporary yet timeless approach to your lighting this year.

Keep your pathways illuminated

To really impress visitors this year, try using outdoor illuminations such as our classic candle shades. These are perfect for helping you express your own personality this Christmas, available in a range of designs to suit your taste. With a rounded dome and a wide base, they’ll make even the humblest outdoor space look its absolute best in time for the festive season!

Give the gift of light this Christmas

If you can’t see your loved ones this Christmas, then consider gifting them a shade from Nordic Lights instead. Our range includes lots of sentimental ways to show you care and will remind you all that you’ll be back together soon.
