Cord color is a very important factor when choosing the type of lighting you need. The color of the cord should be as close as possible to the color of the object the lights are on. This compatibility is to greatly reduce, or even eliminate, the visibility of the cord. When decorating, you do not want to have the focus be on unsightly, dangling wires; you want it to be on your beautiful, colorful lights. Thankfully, there is a large variety of cord color options available to you so that you can get the most out of your lighting experience. The primary cord colors you will find are green, white, brown, and black. Green cords are by far the most common. The green wire will blend in well with most greenery including Christmas trees, bushes, garland, and hedges. Green wire can be used all year round for a plethora of occasions. Most of the lights available on green wire are UL listed for outdoor use as well as indoor use, so you need not worry about them holding up in an outdoor environment. Another very popular cord color is white cord. This is meant to be used with white Christmas trees. White wire is also the ideal choice to be hung around your home and office for general winter decorating and winter parties. Lighting on white cord is also extremely popular in decorating for weddings and anniversary parties. Brown wire is used for very specific purposes. It is generally used to wrap lights around a tree trunk. Brown cord is also the best choice for any type of decoration on decks or furniture that are brown. They work especially well on dinner tables, patios and decks. Black wire is the rarest of them all and is really only used for Halloween themes. You will typically find orange or purple lights on black cord. The black cord enhances the Halloween lights and gives them the extra touch of Halloween magic that your lights are missing. Lights with black wire are also an excellent choice if your intention is to use them at night. No matter which cord color you need, we have plenty of options available.
