The holiday season is a wonderful time of year to delight your clients, employees and visitors with beautiful holiday decor that matches the spirit of the season. In particular, decorating the lobby for the holidays is important, because it’s one of the first spaces people see when they enter your building.
The holidays are right around the corner, and your lobby needs a spruce up from the same old decorations your company has been putting up for years. You don’t just want the same old garlands and wreaths.
You want holiday decor that looks festive, feels magical, and evokes feelings of joy and excitement.
It’s time for a change - but what?
Here are 10 holiday decoration ideas to get you thinking about the holiday decor for your lobby.
Go Big With the Tree
There’s nothing quite like seeing a big and beautiful tree to get you feeling like it’s the holiday season. If you have plenty of space, consider investing in a large Christmas tree for your front lobby. A showstopping tree fully adorned with sparkling lights and ornamentation is sure to light up the lobby and draw people in just to see it.

Make the Lobby Feel Like Home
The holidays are a time for gathering around with family and friends, and holiday decor should evoke a feeling of comfort and home - no matter the space. If your lobby is a place where people congregate, make it feel extra cozy for the holidays. Even small changes like rearranging seating around trees, wrapping empty boxes to look like presents, and providing hot cocoa to keep the chill away will give off a snug vibe.
