Tips for Choosing an Artificial Christmas Tree
Now that you’ve seen some gorgeous artificial Christmas trees, let’s talk go over some of the most frequently asked questions about these practical pines.
The best products are often of high-quality with realistic faux tree accents and user-friendly designs. Some decorators prefer trees that are so authentic looking that you’re surprised they don’t sprout pine cones. Others would rather buy trees that are easy to set up, shed-free, and durable. The best artificial Christmas trees will have all of these features and more.
Realistic Looking Artificial Pine Trees
For those who want an artificial pine that looks like a real tree, opt for trees with branches that have been carefully designed with intricate details.
Usually, realistic-looking artificial trees will have rich brown branch bases covered in both dark and light coloured green artificial needles. This shaded foliage is one of the best ways to make an artificial tree look like more like a real tree.
Durable with Quick and Easy Setup
If you’re more interested in durability and simplicity, user-friendly features include metal stands, balanced designs, pre-strung lights, and hinged tips. These components will make trees easier to set up.
Pre-Lit Christmas Trees
Choosing a tree that comes pre-lit can save you tons of time and help you avoid hassles. Often, pre-lit trees come in three sections and may come with clear lights, coloured lights, or white LED lights. Clear lights match more interior themes but coloured lights are mesmerising and festive. Think about which design themes you’ll use to help you decide which lighting styles are best.
Find the Proper Size
Also, check the height of your ceiling and consider how much floor space you have available. You definitely don’t want something too tall or wide. Leave between 6-12 inches from the tip of your tree to the ceiling. Make sure to leave plenty of room to walk from space to space and avoid crowding your home’s natural traffic ways.
Christmas Tree FAQs
Gaps and spaces on a tree can be pretty frustrating. There are a few ways to fix this. First and foremost, only buy artificial trees that resemble thick pines. A faux Scotch pine tree, Dunhill fir, Douglas fir, or Kingswood fir tree will usually be thick and bushy.
If you’ve already got a tree, you will first want to fix up your branch tips. To do this, shape and angle branch tips in an upward direction. Then, using gloves, you can fan out the needles to sort of “fluff” them up. If all else fails, there are green garlands and other fillers that you can use to minimize gaps.
Branch tip numbers can vary depending on the size, style, and shape of the artificial Christmas tree you choose. For example, very tall premium thick trees will measure around 240cm tall and can have as many as 3,200 branch tips. Alternatively, an inexpensive yet equally tall tree might only have 700 tips. The more branch tips, the thicker your tree will look. The best artificial tree options will have anywhere from 800-2000 tips. Shorter trees can get away with 300-800 tips and still retain their shape and fullness.
