Another great thing about artificial trees is that they offer such a range of options when it comes to decoration. You can choose to go for a standard tree that you can then accessorize as you please, something that comes pre-decorated, saving you time and effort, or something altogether different like a silver, gold, or even pink-needled tree!
- Do I want a pre-lit or unlit tree?
The choice about whether or not to have the lights built into the tree is of convenience and preference.
Pre-lit Christmas trees are all ready to go - you simply need to add the ornaments. Unlit Christmas trees allow for much more creative choice when it comes to selecting the color and bulb size of the lights for different kinds of looks.
- Should I get a flocked tree?
Flocking is using artificial snow to give the branches of the tree, either a frosted or snow-covered look. These are great for people living in a warmer climate who love the idea of a white Christmas.
- Are colored Christmas trees a good idea?
These kinds of trees are good if you are looking for something particularly eye-catching, modern, young, and fun. Colored Christmas trees are quickly gaining in popularity. They work really well in more neutral-toned rooms for a pop of extra color.
- Can I get a tree with ornaments?
Again this is an excellent option if you are looking for something you can just put up and go. For a more traditional feel, select a pinecone or berry tree which will either work well just as it is or can be jazzed up with a little decoration.
For something really distinct, check out tinsel trees. These glitzy-looking trees add a touch of glamor to any room and require no additional accessories whatsoever to look both festive and fabulous.
When making your selection, just keep in mind that whichever type of tree you do end up purchasing, you will likely be using it for many years to come, so make sure to choose something you can enjoy in the long-term.
