Since inflatables are a great way to enjoy the vacation, it can be easy to get hold of carried away with festive holiday cheers! However, for safety and practical reasons, you need to make sure that you are not buying inflatables that are too big (or too small) for your home.
A good place to start is by simply measuring the available space in your front yard. Mark the parts of your yard that need to be accessible for daily useand then measure the rest – the part available for decoration – to see the approximate square footage you will be working with.
When shopping for inflatables, note the dimensions of the product details. Anything larger than the available space should be dismissed without a second look!
Wondering how to stay away from buying decorations that are too small? Decorations that are too small are a much more aesthetic problem than buy decorations that are too big. Instead of making it difficult to navigate your yard, look at a situation that cannot be seen from the street.
To counter this, take out a few different items from your house that are different sizes: for example, an 18-inch high bucket, an outdoor chair 3 feet high, etc. if you have friends or children who like this want to participate, this could be a fun way for them to help! Leave them in your front yard roughly where you would like Christmas decorations (or place your props in these locations).
Then stand across the street and see what you can watch. If you can’t easily see your props or friends, you won’t be able to easily see an inflatable boat of similar approximate dimensions. In this case, resizing may be a good idea.
