Lighting has formed an integral part of any Christmas decoration theme or display, ever since Edward Johnson wired coloured bulbs together and arranged them over a Christmas tree in the late 1800s. Christmas lighting has come a long way since that day, with endless possibilities in colour, style and purpose, so lighting specialist BLT Direct has put together a selection of festive products to make creating seasonal home or office space as easy as possible this year.
Stocking both indoor and outdoor Christmas lighting options including seasonal classics such as fairy lights and outdoor icicle strings, BLT Direct is also supplying a variety of outstanding LED lighting ideas that put a twist on traditional choices. LED Flicker Style Candle Bulbs are ideal for creating the magic of real flame candles without the mess or hazard and make a great addition to any tree or mantelpiece, while a range of Coloured Squirrel Cage Light Bulbs add a fun and festive spin on a style that has been prevalent since the late 19 th century.
Steven Elwood, Managing Director of BLT Direct said “Christmas is a key time when it comes to lighting. Putting your home or office lighting arrangement up is a great way to express yourself and get colleagues or family involved in feeling festive. It’s the one time of the year that it’s completely acceptable to experiment with lighting, try something new and go over the top.”
For businesses, creating an impressive Christmas lighting display can even help drive footfall and sales; a test by US restaurant chain Golden Corral showed that venues who displayed Christmas lighting saw a 5% increase in sales compared to those who didn’t.
BLT Direct offer a plethora of lighting options suitable for Christmas, including their variety of LED bulbs and other lighting options. LED bulbs are renowned for being energy efficient and long-lasting, which is worth considering when Christmas decorations are often left on for extended periods of time.
