There can be different types of light bulbs you can use for your pergola Christmas illumination. Usually there can be such types as:

Illumination of such bulbs always looks very stylish and creates stunning effect, but it also requires a lot of electricity, so before installing them to your pergola you should provide careful planning of your energy consumption.
- Classic colourful bulbs
Illumination of colourful incandescent lights looks extremely impressive and bright. Such bulbs can have different finishing, so you need to pay attention at its quality before buying. The same as clear incandescent Christmas lights, such bulbs also require careful electricity planning.
