Sunrooms and patios are wonderful spaces to spend time outside with friends and family, but the sun sets rather early in the winter, so it gets dark quickly. An easily solution to this dilemma is to set up colorful lights outside your home, which not only improve visibility, but also contribute to the festivity of the holiday season! No matter what holidays you celebrate, putting up holiday lights helps bring members of the community together while making your house look comfortable and welcoming.
Here are a few decoration ideas to spice up your sunroom or patio cover in the holiday season:
Place icicle LED lights around the top border of the room to mimic the appearance of real icicles. There are a variety of different icicle lights, so find some colorful ones to create the feeling of a magical winter wonderland! These lights are easy to install and can be easily controlled with a remote or a timer.
Put a Christmas tree in your sunroom! It will be protected from any outdoor threats while having a much more natural appearance than being indoors. Decorate the tree with simple string lights for a light glow, or wrap it up with light-up garland for a dramatic look.
Buy light-up holiday flowers, like poinsettias, to place around the exterior of your sunroom or patio. During the day, these will appear to be normal flowers, but at night they will glow up the room and certainly “lighten up” the mood.
Place light-up wreaths on the exterior door or border the door with LED light strips. These will make the door easier to find in the dark while creating a cozier, welcoming environment.
Decorate the walls with fairy lights or twinkle lights – small lights that continuously blink while providing a soft glow to the room. For an intense colorful experience, place LED light strips all around the ceiling border and turn off the other lights to completely transform the atmosphere!
Spending time with loved ones during the holiday season is a necessity, and sunrooms and patios are the perfect places to get together. For some light in the late nighttime, decorate your house with some holiday lights to increase festivity and spread holiday cheer. Whether you install these lights yourself or hire somebody to do it for you, it will surely become a beloved holiday tradition. Beautiful views, friendly company, and holiday lights are the perfect recipe for extra joy in your sunroom or patio.
