1. Determine your space:
Before you decide to pick the perfect Christmas Tree for your home it is important to understand the measurements of the space where you will be placing your tree. Measure both the height of your ceiling and the width of the area where the tree will be placed.
A simple rule of thumb is: The top of your Christmas Tree should be 6 inches away from your ceiling and the sides of your tree 6 inches away from their closest walls.
Keep in mind that the height of artificial trees includes the stand, so factor that into your measurements. A tree that is too tall or wide can overwhelm your space, while one that is too small may not create the desired impact. A tree like our 8ft Pre-Lit Mixed Flocked Christmas Tree is perfect for almost every space, as this tree is neither too tall nor too wide and fits into almost every home perfectly.
2. Pick Pre-Lit:
One of the most convenient features of our Christmas trees is their pre-lit nature. These trees come with built-in lights, saving you the hassle of stringing lights yourself. When selecting a pre-lit tree, consider the colour of the lights (we suggest going for minimal warm-neutral lights) and the number of lights the tree has.
Our collection of pre-lit trees comes with a minimum of 650-1000 evenly distributed lights for a stunning and uniform glow.
A good pre-lit tree offers time-saving convenience, uniform lighting, energy efficiency, safety, customization options, and easy assembly, so you can spend more time enjoying the holiday spirit with your loved ones and less time wrestling with tangled lights.
3. Other Features to Look Out For:
Apart from the size and the lighting, it's important to consider a few more key features when going Christmas Tree shopping to get the best deal possible. Here are some important features that will determine the longevity, quality, and convenience of your tree for many years to come:
It's important to select a Christmas Tree that is easy to assemble AND easy to store. Most of our pre-lit trees have been designed for an easy setup, and come in sections that you can quickly assemble, pre-lit for your convenience, eliminating the need for meticulous light placement.
Our Christmas Tree Storage Bag offers easy and effective storage without taking up too much storage space, and safe-keeping your trees so they can be enjoyed for many years to come.
Our realistic artificial Christmas trees have been designed with great attention to detail, from the texture of the needles to the colour variation in the branches. From the branches to the bark, our Christmas Trees feature an authentic appearance, are incredibly durable and long-lasting, easy to assemble, and eliminate the mess and allergens that come with real trees.
Make a selection for your tree depending on the space you have and the look you would like to achieve -
- Full Shape: Full-shaped Christmas trees are lush and symmetrical, with branches that extend all around the tree. These trees provide ample space for ornaments and decorations and create a classic and festive look. They are ideal for spacious living rooms with high ceilings.
- Medium Shape: These trees perfectly balance fullness and space-saving. They are versatile enough to fit in rooms of all sizes, and have a well-proportioned appearance, making them a popular choice for many households.
- Slim Shape: Slim Christmas trees are slender and space-efficient, perfect for smaller rooms or areas with limited floor space. Slim trees provide a stylish and contemporary look while still allowing room for decorations.
- Tabletop and Mini Trees: These compact trees are perfect for adorning countertops, mantels, or small tables, adding a festive touch to any nook or cranny.
