As September comes to a close, everyone’s thoughts turn to the holiday season. Halloween lurks right around the corner and is often one of the most popular holidays when it comes to aesthetics and tone. If you want to make your Halloween something a bit more special, here are three Halloween decorating tips to make your house stand out when trick-or-treaters roam the night.

Depend on Your Preferences

There are plenty of ways to decorate your home that maintain the spirit of Halloween without limiting you to the stereotypical basics. Your own personal preferences can be a powerful tool in making your home stand out because they’re unique to you. So think about them rather than following the same guidelines traditional decorations set out for you. Incorporate your favorite horror tropes, or don’t focus on being scary at all. Some of the most effective Halloween decorations elicit humor or focus on being cute. These draw attention because of the tonal shift they bring without ruining the spirit of Halloween.

Make Use of Lighting

Call us biased, but we believe one of the best Halloween decorating tips to make your house stand out is incorporating clever lighting into your design. Many people opt to forego lights as the dark is naturally scary, but a lighting component gives you greater control over your home’s atmosphere. For example, creating an eerie glow can make your home seem ominous. You can also have a comforting beacon that provides weary trick-or-treaters a moment of respite when they approach your home. To achieve such effective lighting, take a look at our holiday light installation services in Los Angeles. You’ll get a sense of what lighting can do for your decorations.

Create a Focal Point

Rather than evenly decorating your home, focus your efforts on a major focal point. Without a focal point in your decorations, it’s easy for your home to fade into the background along with other houses using generic decorations. A focal point draws attention—often by implying a narrative that piques curiosity. You can use a decorative scene or diorama as your focal point. For instance, a common example is portraying skeletons or monsters performing mundane, everyday tasks to evoke a sense of humor that people will appreciate as they pass by.
