They say there’s no place like home for the holidays—and there’s good reason for it! Annual traditions and family visits are the stuff memories are made of.

If you’re looking to spruce up your home for the holidays—to do more, say, than dragging some string-lights out of the basement—this blog is for you. We’ve got some creative ways to bring out the best in your home for the most wonderful time of the year.

1. Light Up Your Entrance

Your front door is the first thing your guests will see, so why not light it up with professional landscape lighting? You’d be surprised how much your home’s curb appeal can improve through a creative lighting design, one that illuminates your home’s strengths and downplays any weaknesses.

Plus, it’s no secret that better-lit entryways are less susceptible to break-ins.

2. Take Your Internet Connection Up a Notch

The most coveted presents under the tree are generally electronics: iPads and Xboxes and Kindles and Wiis. Funny thing about all of these gifts—they all require a Wifi connection. Why not hard-wire the family room to avoid the frustration that comes with slow, spotty Wifi? Hard-wiring a room involves replacing a wireless network with one that’s cabled, which provides faster data and video transmission that’s also more reliable and secure. Clearer images and faster file transfers are other perks, as well as smoother gameplay for systems that connect to the Internet. Call your trusted Bucks County electrician to hardwire a room to serve your computer, TV, DVR, game system, and whatever other gizmos you get this year.

3. Install a Lutron System for Ultimate Convenience

Installing a wireless system from Lutron may be the most high-tech way to spruce up your home for the holidays. With one of these, you can control your lights, shades, and temperature from anywhere—whether you’re home or away. An iPhone app controls it all, which means you can switch off the lights while lying in bed—or while vacationing in Florida.

Plus, some of Lutron’s systems are compatible with the Apple Watch, so your favorite gift will have a ton of bonus functionality.

Hope you have a great holiday season, everyone! Thanks for keeping up with Wes Carver Electric!
