Creative Designs for Haunting Looks

Ready to start planning your frighteningly good lighting? Here are some ways to leverage RGB + WW for decorating:

  • Bathe your home in color. Use spotlights or strand lights to cast colors onto exterior walls, siding, shingles, or fencing. This instantly transforms the look of your home for the season.
  • Silhouette and spotlight landscaping. Backlight trees and bushes to create spooky shadows and shapes. Illuminate key yard art and props.
  • Guide the way with pathway lighting. Line walkways and stairs with RGB color-changing effects to set the scene. Encourage trick-or-treaters to explore.
  • Decorate props and décor. Wrap pillar lights, wreaths, faux gravestones, figures, and more with strands. Customize colors to match themes.
  • Transition spaces. Coordinate indoor entryways, porches, and patios with your outdoor lighting schemes. Carry the ambiance inside.
  • Enhance with accents. Add in flicker flame bulbs for candles or fireplaces. Scatter pathway "eye" that glows and follows visitors.

Expert Tricks for Programming and Placement

Strategic programming and placement of your RGB + WW lights are key to maximizing impact. Here are some tips:

  • Pre-program lighting shows in an app to easily activate different scenes on demand. Sync up music and effects for a show.
  • Vary animation styles and speeds throughout your display. Use flashing, chasing, fading, transitions, and more for interest.
  • Use warm white as your base color to fill and highlight areas. Overlay colors for accents. WW balances and blends colored effects.
  • Spotlight standout props, landscaping, or architectural features you want to call attention to.
  • Focus lights in key areas where they'll make the biggest difference, not just scatter them everywhere.
  • Follow lighting plans to evenly distribute colors and animations throughout your space.
  • Set schedules so lights automatically turn on around dusk and off later at night when finished.
