1. Find a trustworthy lighting company

The first step in getting permanent trim lights for your home is to find a trustworthy lighting company that can provide you with the lights and install them for you. 

In case you missed it, in one of our most recent blogs, we provided you with 6 Things To Ask Your Lighting Company Before Installing Your Nightscape Lights

Beyond these things, we encourage you to ask your professional lighting company about WCB coverage and insurance, especially when they will be up high on ladders! You can also research the company to see if they have lighting expertise. Check out their online reviews and any portfolios they have of previous work to see what prior customers thought of their work.

Last, but certainly not least, speak with a member of their team to determine if they have knowledgeable, friendly customer service representatives that will be able to help you.

Here at Five Star Holiday Decor, we provide each of our customers with a free site visit to ensure that we can get you set up with the best lighting possible at the best price possible. 

Although we can and do provide a fairly accurate price range with our over-the-phone estimating, we definitely prioritize coming on site as well. 

By coming on site, we’ll not only be able to lock down accurate pricing, but we’ll also be able to work with you to design your permanent trim lights. 

Additionally, the permanent trim lights that we install can be custom matched to the colour of your soffit to ensure that they completely blend in during the day. We’ll get a perfect colour match while we’re on site. 
Yes, there are many practical benefits to permanent trim lights, however, we also prioritize designing and installing them in a way that will make your property look its absolute best.

3. Get your permanent lighting installed on your home

After you’ve received and approved your quote for your permanent trim lights, you’ll be able to chat with our Customer Success Team and get booked in for your installation day! Our team will work with you to find a time that works best for your schedule. 

Here at Five Star Holiday Decor, our busiest season is between November and December. So, if you’d like to get your appointment booked in faster, we definitely suggest requesting an installation day during the summer or early fall. 

We don’t require you to be at home while we install your permanent trim lights, however, you definitely can be if you want to be. During installation, make sure to give the professional lighting technicians the space that they need to safely climb ladders and install your permanent trim lights. 

If you are at home while we install your permanent trim lights, we’ll be able to complete a walkthrough and show you the new lights once we’re done. You’ll be able to ask questions and chat with us if there are any adjustments that you want our team to make. 

If you’re not home during installation, we always encourage that you walk through and look at the lights once you are home to make sure that they are everything you dreamed of! If you have any questions or concerns, you can always give our team a call to get them sorted ASAP.

4. Customize, customize, customize your permanent trim lights 

This is the fun part! Now that your lights are installed, it’s time for you to have some fun with them. The Celebright permanent trim lights that we install for you have many, many customization options. You can truly make them your own. 

There are 16 million colour options (that’s 16,000,000!) available to you when you purchase permanent trim lights through our team. AND you can control what colour your lights are… from your cell phone. How handy is that?

You can also pick specific patterns of colours, if you’d prefer not to have a solid colour for all of your lights. If you consider your lights too bright, you can turn the brightness down, or if they’re too dim, you can crank the brightness up, too!

Your permanent trim lights can stay static, or you can customize the movement of them as well. Through the app on your phone you can try out different twinkles, chases, fades, and more. The possibilities are so exciting! 

If you want your lights to automatically turn on at dusk and off at dawn, they’ll be able to do so according to your specific time zone as well. You can set the schedule and timing according to exactly when you want them on and off.
