How to Buy the Best Artificial Christmas Tree
No matter what you're looking for in an artificial Christmas tree, you definitely have options. But all these choices can seem a little overwhelming and how do you know that you're buying the right Christmas tree for your home? Before you buy, decide whether you want a flocked, natural or colored artificial tree, whether you want a pre-lit or unlit tree and determine which tree size and shape works best for your room.
Flocked Christmas Trees Vs Natural Trees Vs Colored Christmas Trees
Flocked Christmas trees have come a long way since they used to be created with spray snow from a can. Today's flocked trees have a beautiful, natural looking snow, without all of the mess. When paired with warm clear or white LED lights, you have a gorgeous, natural looking tree that could have been taken directly from a snowy Christmas tree farm.
If you're a traditionalist, a natural green Christmas tree is probably more your style. These natural trees come in a variety of styles that mimic real evergreens, including pine, alpine, fir, spruce and more. With so many to choose from, you're only limited by your own imagination.
Who says Christmas trees have to be green? If you've got a non-traditional holiday vibe going on in your home, you can find evergreens that are anything but green! Check out pink, blue, orange, black, red, teal and purple trees.
Pre-lit Christmas Trees Vs Unlit Artificial Christmas Trees
Once you determine which size works best for your space, the next decision is about lights! Do you want a pre-lit tree or do you want to add the lights yourself? The ease of a pre-lit tree can't be ignored - all you have to do is plug it in and you won't ever have to worry about tangled strands of lights year after year. However, if you like to switch between clear and colored lights each year, you may want to choose an unlit tree.
Which Christmas Tree Shape is Right for Your Space
Lastly, you'll want to consider the size of the space for your evergreen. If you have a massive area, the sky's the limit. However, if you're like most families, chances are good that you'll want to stick with a 6 - 7.5 foot tree. These are great heights for most rooms, while still giving you a traditional, statement decor pieces in your home.
If you have a small room, consider getting a slim or pencil shaped tree. A slim tree is less full than a traditional tree, which makes it ideal for smaller spaces. If you are truly crunched for space, a pencil tree is even more slim. These are quite vertical. Need to put a tree alongside a wall? Go for a half tree. These are designed to sit right next to a wall, which is a great option if you don't want to rearrange your living room temporarily for a Christmas tree.
