4 Types of Exterior Lighting That Can Boost Your Business in 2021

Exterior lighting can help you create a stylish and clean facade for your business that will draw new customers into your commercial space. And after the sun goes down, curb appeal — and safety — are even more important. 

From patio to building entrance and pathway lights, here are some of the top types of exterior lighting choices that could help boost your business this upcoming year: 

1. Patio lights:
Commercial patios not only give you the opportunity to serve more customers, but it also allows you to extend your time with them in a unique way. Patio lights are fun, functional, and add life to your space. String lights are the most popular style of patio lights and these strands of glass bulbs can elevate the ambiance of your patio or restaurant beyond the average bistro.

2. Pathway lighting:
Pathway lights provide visibility for your customers’ safety and comfort. As with many other lighting considerations, proportion is key with pathway lighting. For a small walkway, general uplighting can work, but for larger pathways, you might want to turn to bollard lights. Working with a professional electrician can ensure that you make the right decision for your space.

3. Security lighting:
Outdoor lighting isn’t only a way to wow your customers, it’s also an important tool that can protect your business from burglars or vandals. You might want to consider installing motion-activated light fixtures that will turn on when someone moves beneath them. Or you could use LED floodlights which automatically turn on when it’s dark. Businesses that could benefit from this include car dealerships, nurseries, or any other company with valuable items outside 24-7.

4. Outdoor lighting fixtures:
If you have potential customers strolling along the sidewalk near your store, outdoor lighting fixtures are an important design element that could make a huge statement about the products and/or services you sell inside. Stylishly spread light using wall sconces or if you are looking for more functionality, you could use a simple, flush-mounted wall fixture to diffuse more light across more square footage.

“​Hey Nigel, just thought I would let you know our electricity averaged around $630/month before the upgrade, compared with the September bill that we just got of only $370 – much better savings than we thought. The condo board members are extremely pleased!”​
