In our chaotic and modern world, the privilege of resting in a peaceful home is something we all long for. As a result, Property Management companies work hard to make living communities a comfortable place to grow. With the use of a visual communication plan, property managers promote safety and assist with wayfinding around the property by extending visibility and branding throughout. Signs and graphics can enhance the residential experience. Here are four ways to use the acronym H-O-M-E as a guide to creating a better one
1. H is for Helping Guide Residents
Wayfinding helps both residents and visitors safely navigate in and around an entire space. First impressions are always important. Entrances to a property can be enhanced using dimensional letters, banners, logo signs, and door or window vinyl. Other options such as illuminated channel letters and building signs can be installed to identify the property both day and night. With the use of parking lot signs and directional signs, you can assist tenants and visitors as they navigate the property traffic patterns.
2. O is for Over Communicating Safety Concerns
Residents want to feel they are being taken care of and safety signs can help reassure them. Safety signage can come in many different options and each plays an important role around a property. Whether it’s work zone signs for when there is maintenance going on, pool rule signs, or exit signs, safety signs are an integral component for keeping an apartment community safe.
3. M is for Making Sure Your Branding is Evident
Branded signs across a property can articulate a professional and unified appearance. Transform a space with consistent brand colors and visuals used on leasing center signs, entryway mats, in fitness spaces and throughout public meeting/lounge areas. By being consistent with the property brand and logo across the spaces, managers can establish a strong presence and elevate brand visibility.
4. E is for Enhancing the Area for All
For a more convenient and all-encompassing environment, customized Braille and ADA signs will help ensure that you are following all codes. This type of sign has a double purpose of creating a kinder space and a unified brand look. Incorporating these signs into your space will help in displaying your approach to accessibility to everyone in your community.
The Signs of Home Sweet Home
A well-organized signage plan helps property managers grow occupancy rates and aids in connecting with visitors and residents. Soon-to-be tenants can decide from a variety of properties, and an establishment can rise above the competition by elevating the experience they provide to their residents.
