How to Create a More Welcoming Lobby in Your Business

Posted on

If you own a big commercial property with a bunch of tenants, then you know how important it is to keep all of them happy. In addition to offering services like regular janitorial cleaning and maintenance services, it's also your duty to provide tenants with nice community spaces; like the lobby. If it has been a while since you spruced up your building's lobby, then it may be time to give it a little bit of tender love and care. Here are some remodeling options.

Add New Flooring

Adding new flooring to your lobby is one of the most impactful things that you can do for the space. If you have old dingy carpet or outdated tile, it's just going to make the entire space look drab; no matter what other improvements you do. When you invest in the flooring, you can bring the whole space to life.

Because your lobby is a common area, consider putting in a material that is a bit more durable like wood, tile, or laminate flooring. All of these different types of flooring can be easily mopped and can usually handle a good amount of wear and tear at the same time. Your commercial remodeling company will be able to show you a verity of different styles to help you make the space look current and modern. 

Have It Painted

Depending on the commercial remolding company that you are working with, they may recommend having the space painted either before or after the new flooring comes in. Adding a fresh coat of paint like a vibrant white or a really light grey can also help bring the space to life. Plus, when you pair new paint with other upgrades like flooring or new furniture, you're really going to get the results that you want. 

Add New Lighting

Depending on the height of your ceilings in your lobby, you may want to have a big chandelier installed. A chandelier works especially well with vaulted ceilings. In contrast, if the ceilings are shorter, then you may want to have canned lights installed. If you don't have a lot of natural light in the lobby, then make sure that you have enough new ceiling lighting installed by your commercial remodeling company. In addition, talk to the company about adding a window for more natural light.
