Now that the sparkle of Christmas is behind us and the decorations are all taken down, things are looking a bit empty, aren’t they? All the build up and excitement, and the whole thing is over as quick as the flash of a faulty Christmas light. Well, whether you’re concerned about the cessation of Christmas or looking forward to forgetting the festivities, your business and customers shouldn’t suffer – and neither should you.
We Liverpool electrical contractors work all year round to make sure that shops and businesses look at their best, and we don’t think there’s any need to forget about your lighting after December. In fact, it’s more important than ever to encourage a warm, vibrant atmosphere. Let’s take a look at how to get your shop looking great for January.
Pared Back Doesn’t Mean Bare
Take advantage of the fact that you are no longer obliged to decorate in only red, green, silver and gold with some simple, unshaded bulbs to decorate and light the shop floor. Though they may sound austere, when teamed with brightly coloured cables and hung in an interesting fashion, the effect is an interesting and current one. Try groups of three, with different lengths for the ultimate in minimalist cool.
It’s Still Winter!
Don’t forget that there is still two months of winter to go – don’t start lighting the place for spring quite yet. Pair your lighting with warm colours and beautiful soft furnishings to create that cosy vibe that shoppers will crave throughout the (let’s face it) depressing month of January.
Spotlight Those Sales
Don’t forget to place emphasis on those sales items by lighting and displaying them properly. Clutter is unattractive and dark corners are not the best selling areas – a single light lowered on to a given product in a promotional area is a great way to draw attention to it.
If you’re a shop or commercial property and need our help with design, installation, or anything else to do with your lighting, then we’d love to help. Contact us today for more information about banishing those January blues.
