With the holiday season just around the corner, many of us remember the memories of our childhood homes being decorated. Those warm lights glowing on a snowy night and the feeling they bring are something we strive to create each year. And what a better way than to get that feeling to your commercial property. If you want your property to be festive this year, there’s no better time to start planning than now. When it comes to holiday lighting, we can help you create a display that you love and is also safe.

Start Your Planning Early

It is never too early to plan your holiday decor for your business. You don’t want to wait until the weather becomes too frigid to install all of your lighting displays. Slippery ice on your pavement and roof adds another layer of danger and difficulty to an already time-consuming task. When you have a plan, the whole process tends to go a lot smoother.


Developing a plan before hiring a contractor to design your holiday lighting is incredibly helpful. Your lights serve to welcome visitors to your business, so consider the front door as a focal point. Depending on your taste, there is a wide assortment of colors and combinations available. However, keeping a simple design is often a reliable holiday classic.

Know the Design Areas

All buildings have crucial elements to think about when creating a holiday light display. First, think about the roofline. Lights on the roofline are timeless, as are framing the windows. When it comes to ground decor, you may want to consider lights on the pathways and driveways. Not only does this look festive, but it can also help avoid trips and falls through the dark hours of winter. You can also light up any trees and shrubs on your lot, adding to the ambiance of your property.

Keep in mind that while lights look beautiful at night, you may also want to consider other elements that you can see during the day, such as garlands, bows, and wreaths.

Equip Yourself with the Right Tools

When it comes to holiday lights, LEDs are the most efficient and bright. You can choose from various vibrant options that won’t cost a fortune when you receive the power bill. Additionally, cords should be hidden under mulch and rock to look clean and keep employees, visitors, and clients safe from tripping over them. If you don’t want invasive options, such as nails, using clips to hang lights is available and will cause little to no damage to your property.
