    Christmas Question for new house !!

    We are wiring the house and I am thinking of getting the electrician to put an outlet in the ceiling by the dining rm light. I have lighted garland in mind. This is the only hanging light I have, cause I don't like to clean them. Pease give me your opinion.

    If the outlet is sort of hidden, I cant see why not. I'm sure you don't want the outlet to turn in to the focal point of the room. You can also get battery operated lighted garland.

    I wouldn't do it because it will look terrible the rest of the year. But I would have more outside outlets if we were building our house today.

    It may be possible to have a ceiling light with a built in outlet.

    I would do it in a heart beat!

    As long as the drain on the fuse won't be much it shouldn't be a problem to have it installed. Much cheaper now than later!

    Maybe you could cover it up somehow as others have suggested, but I couldn't see it as a focal point for anyone!

    My electrician [son] wouldn't do it. So hubby took his side. I told him 'fine as long as he doen't mind hearing about it over the next twenty years -- and he will, believe me.

    LOL

    I would use the battery operated lights then.

    Do not damage Window Frames to hang lights

    Many are faced with wanting holiday lights in their windows, but do not want to damage their window frames with nails or other items. If you are looking for an easy and clean system, then look at the item "frameyourholiday". This is for indoors or out doors, and can even be used to decorate doorways with garland and lights, just remove the bottom cross bar. Enjoy decorating with ease and enjoy more time with family and friends less time being frustrated with how to get the look you want.
