Hung alone, filament bulb string lights can have a minimalist, artsy look that will suit industrial spaces or city lofts. Larger bulbs give an urban, sophisticated feel to suit bigger spaces. These can also be left up all year round so if any unexpected guests come by, your place will be ready to entertain with no fuss.
Mix and match with different light types! Bendy, battery operated wire lights and ropelights can be used to create warm ambient tones in any indoor area. These look great wrapped around vases or glass jars or can be bent into any shape for a custom look and personal touch, perfect for adding that last minute touch for your next diner occasion.
Don't forget the bedroom! Decorative fairy lights give off a feeling of cosiness and will pair perfectly with your blankets and cushions.
