If you own or manage a residential multi-unit building, you’ve got a lot on your plate. Between building maintenance and upkeep, the financial side of things, and finding new tenants, a residential building can be a full time job. That’s why a rotating art service, like IPaintMyMind’s Art Rentals, is a fantastic solution to save time and minimize stress. We help you choose the perfect art for your building’s lobby or other shared spaces, and do the installation for you. In a few months, we’ll be back and ready to find fresh art to revitalize your space. You can forget about your rotating art service because it does the work for you, leaving you free to handle everything else.
But, do you really need art in your residential building’s lobby? These days, the answer is absolutely yes.
Real estate prices, property taxes, and just about everything else are on a sharp uptick, and it’s more important than ever to elevate your design game. A great lobby space and welcoming communal spaces will make all the difference to a prospective tenant. These spaces are the first thing that someone sees in your building, and will influence their impression of the building as a whole. By including carefully curated art, you make the quality of your building clear, and show your prospective tenants that no part of their living experience is an afterthought.
1. It Makes A Great First Impression
First impressions are everything, and you don’t get a do-over. You have one chance to impress, and it starts in your residential building’s lobby space. No matter the layout, whether stairs, elevators, a desk, or mailboxes, the lobby is a space that your tenants will spend a lot of time looking at. It needs to be striking and well thought-out.
We’ve all walked into a residential building and been underwhelmed by the drab, lonely, and abandoned lobby space that sits just inside the front doors. No matter how lovely the facade, or well maintained the units, the lobby becomes a blight on the building. Turn this situation upside down, and invest in your lobby space. It will pay you back in dividends!
2. A Rotating Art Rental Keeps Things Fresh And New
If you look at the same piece of art everyday as you enter and leave your apartment, it’s bound to get old eventually. One day, you might just stop noticing it at all. Interrupt this process amongst your residents with a rotating art rental! It will keep them interested and engaged with your building’s lobby space, and impressed by the level of care that you are putting into their living experience.
IPMM’s Art Rental Service has a 12 month minimum commitment, but you are free to decide when you want to rotate your art! Generally, we recommend a rotation every 3 months for a residential building, but you’re free to decide when you need something new. Mixing up your art will lend a whole new atmosphere to your lobby space, and keep renters excited about the place that they live.
