might think that decorating with holiday lights is a simple task.
You may even believe that the most difficult part of decorating
is putting the lights up. If that is your line of thinking, you
are sure to change your mind as soon as you get to the store where
you will purchase these lights. There is bound to be a whole entire
aisle devoted to these seemingly simple decorations. And that is
only if you shop at a department or discount store. If you choose
to shop at a hardware store or a specialty lighting store, you will
be bombarded by even more choices. “How difficult could this
be”, you might ask. But there are various types of holiday
lights to choose from and several designs within each of these types.
Mini lights are probably the most popular lights each year. They
are very versatile and can be used indoors or outdoors and in several
different situations. When it comes to mini lights, you can choose
between premium and standard. Knowing the differences between premium
min-lights vs. standard mini-lights will help you to narrow your
At first thought you might choose premium lights thinking that
they are better. That would be until you look at their price tag.
Premium lights are quite a bit more expensive than the standard
option. They are sold in larger lots and that accounts for part
of the price difference. They also last longer, which helps to justify
the higher price as well. Premium lights are manufactured under
strict quality control procedures which help to ensure that the
lights will stay lit even under the harshest conditions. It is for
this reason that many professionals use them on commercial buildings.
These bright and durable lights are often used for municipal lighting
displays as well.
Premium mini-lights tend to have a stronger UV rating, making them
brighter than standard lights. They are ideal for places where there
is a lot of other light to compete with. Professionals love to use
them to draw attention to their business, but homeowners who seek
the brightest holiday decorations love them equally. You can also
connect more premium strings end to end than you can with standard
lights. This makes them especially ideal for outdoor lighting. Other
benefits of premium lights are that they use 80 – 90% less
electricity and they produce a minimal amount of heat making them
Even with all of the advantages of premium lighting, you may still
decide that standard mini lights are appropriate for you. They are
much more affordable and are sold in smaller amounts. Standard lights
are bright enough for all of your indoor decorations and often for
your outdoor decorations as well. They are easier to replace when
they wear out or you tire of their style. If you like to change
your décor regularly, standard lights are well suited to
you. You can easily rearrange them or discard them.
Holiday décor calls for lights, lots of them. Fortunately
there are lots and lots of them available, making choosing some
a difficult task. Knowing the differences between premium mini-lights
vs. standard mini-lights can at least narrow down your options.
Your next step is to choose a style, such as white or multi-colored
and steady or blinking. Good luck!
