Is it Worth it to Rent Art For Your Business?
Art rental for the office is rarely on the to-do list of most CEOs. Their concerns typically involve the bottom line, increasing revenue, and keeping the lights on. But thinking about art rentals to spruce up an office space provides a surprisingly high return on investment, is affordable and works in many ways to help the bottom line.
Art rentals for the workplace makes workers happier and more productive. Imagine the inside of your house, but with all the decorations gone. No paintings, no photos, no posters, no tchotchkes, just blank walls. You can imagine the stale feeling of lifelessness that would hang in the air. That’s how millions of employees feel each day at work where they struggle to stay motivated and inspired. Now remember the feeling the last time you strolled through a classic art museum. Where would you rather work 40 hours a week?
The benefits of having art in the workplace are numerous. It’s been known to make workers healthier and more comfortable expressing their opinions. It sets the mood of a room, spawns creativity, sparks friendships and offers a welcome respite from monotonous tasks.
Art in the workplace also impresses patrons and potential clients. Print or paintings hanging on the walls conveys that a company has made it, is no longer in the startup phase, is securely positioned in their industry, and has the funds and wherewithal to invest in fringe benefits. It also shows the company cares about its people and wants them to be happy and comfortable at work.
Art rental subscription are now extremely affordable. A company can get an entire exhibition for under $1,000 a month, which is not much considering it can improve the mood of an entire workforce. When done correctly so that most workers get maximum access to the art, the increase in productivity could mean a direct boost to the bottom line; a handsome return on investment.
One of the best parts of art rental is you can refresh it regularly, giving your space the vibe of a rotating art gallery while also delegating the management, curation, and installation to the pros. Rotating in new pieces every few months is the best way to figure out which genre or color scheme works best in a given space. With so many genres to choose from (modern art, impressionism, folk art, photographs, still life, landscapes, sculptures, portraits, etc.) the process of choosing each new curation could be an office-wide activity that forges camaraderie and boosts morale.
