How far apart to space lights?

Recommended Posts

I am blanketing the house in lights today. I have three areas that I am covering. One is 13 feet wide (using 10 channels), another is 10 feet wide(using 8 channels) and the last area is about 19 feet wide(ausing 14 channels). All lights will be hanging vertically from under the eves. We are going to stripe the house in two different colors. I am thinking each stripe will be about 15" wide. Need some ideas on how far apart to space the strings for each strip. I am thinking spacing maybe evey 4-5 inches, to far?

that would depend on the effect you want and how far away from the usual viewing area.

Example:

If your house sits 30ft from the road then I would think 2-3 inches apart but if you are 100ft from the road then 6-7 inches would do.

We sit close to the road but cars view from at least 50 ft away. I went with 4 inch spacing. I think it will turn out good. We will see. Thans for the input.
