Our Halloween is returning to a more normal October 31st thankfully and we know this means an avalanche of spookily dressed trick or treaters and scary costumes. Let's make our homes more welcoming and jump on the ever-increasing trend is to have your home illuminated with some spooky Halloween lighting. This can genuinely add some real eerie atmosphere to your family Halloween evening and I am sure the neighbours will be green with envy.
With that in mind, we bring you some Halloween lighting ideas to turn your home into a haunted house, please consider these additions to your Halloween decorations, offering some real Halloween inspiration.
Illuminate your carved pumpkin
No lighting is more traditional than the good old carved pumpkin or Jack O' Lantern depending on where you hail from. If you place a tea light or LED candle on the inside of the pumpkin and replace the lid, it will exude a traditional eerie glow this Halloween season.
Use your existing solar garden lights
If you have your solar garden lights from Summer, why not dress them with some fake cobwebs and they will resemble something straight out of a haunted mansion or creepy graveyard.
Add some LED candles
We can't think of anything that says haunted house, than some well-placed, flickering candles. If you're worried about knocking real candles over, you can buy flameless LED candles, which can flicker just like the real thing.
Create the right atmosphere with warm white lights
A dim, warm white glow from your lights can create the right atmosphere, especially when used with some carefully chosen Halloween decorations, they don't have to be coloured to create a spooky effect.
Use some coloured LED strip lights
LED strips can make the perfect Halloween lighting when used in the correct way. Turn your house front door into a mysterious portal by fixing strip lights around the frame, or run them along skirting boards to cast a ghostly glow across the floor.
Place ultraviolet bulbs in a room to create a real glow
The purple glow of Ultraviolet bulbs can turn the most inviting room into something out of a haunted house. Take advantage of their glow-in-the-dark properties by filling rooms with plenty of white decorations: skulls, skeletons and ghosts will shine under the ultraviolet light that these bulbs emit.
Put a Halloween LED projector in your garden
If you really want to create the ultimate spooky feel to the outside of your home, why not invest in a Halloween Projector which can project a ton of ghostly images on the exterior of your home, so everyone passing can by can see your house lit up with ghoulish Halloween characters.
We hope you have a safe and happy Halloween from all of the Choice a Home for all Seasons team
