Common Area Upgrades

You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Whether it’s a potential buyer into your condominium community or friends and family, the look and feel of common areas, especially lobbies, can cast a perception on a property that an individual unit may not be able to shake. If common areas look dated, worn out, or dirty, visitors and prospective buyers may be repelled. This can hurt the image of the property, which, ultimately, could prevent people from wanting to purchase units there.

Consider making upgrades to your common areas. Sprucing up a space that’s in need of a little TLC can make a great impression on buyers and visitors as well as boost the morale of current owners.

Tampa condo management companies can guide their boards by helping them put the following upgrades in place:


Painting: It seems simple but giving common areas like lobbies and clubhouses a fresh coat of paint will be noticed immediately. By painting these areas, they will appear newer and cared for. It’s a little touch like this that can make a big difference when trying to garner high-end residents to your condo community.

Artwork: Adding a little art to your walls can also transform the perception of an otherwise tired-looking space. Your investment in artwork doesn’t have to involve pricey, one of a kind prints, there are plenty of beautiful finds at Target or your local consignment store.

Fresh Flowers: Just as flowers bring a certain sophistication to your home, the same is true for common areas. Go to a local florist and ask for recommendations. Place your arrangements on tables in your common area and make a great impression.


New Flooring: Flooring is another subtle area that can make difference with the help of newer materials. When selecting flooring, it’s important to pick a material that’s elegant but easy to clean. Consider granite, stone, or hardwood floors. These styles blend well with beautiful furniture.

New Furniture: Common areas are about building community. Whether it’s a clubhouse or a lobby, if there’s comfortable, yet stylish furniture, residents are more likely to hang around. This will make your community look vibrant.

New Lighting: Depending on the lighting, a common area can look dynamic, inviting, or simply drab. Choose new lightning based on the tastes of the current residents and the residents that you are trying to attract.

When it comes to upgrades that add value to your community, a Tampa condominium management company can help with ideas and resources that can make residents happy and increase property values.
