Happy, engaged residents keep a community active, fun and a desirable place to live. Offering community residents a place to gather and entertain is a top selling feature that will entice new buyers and renters while retaining current homeowners. While a basic clubhouse provides a place to gather, it isn't enough to keep people happy and engaged. Take these five steps to to enhance your current clubhouse and increase your communities wow factor.
1. Community Access Control
Pools, clubhouses and community fitness centers are exclusive benefits for residents that are paid for through the residents HOA dues. These exclusive amenities should truly only be accessed by the residents and their chosen guest, yet many communities in Atlanta, Georgia don't offer any form of security or access control to prevent a non-resident from walking right in to use their facilities. The best way to protect the community amenities and residents is to add access control key cards and/or fobs at pool gates, fitness center doors and private community areas. Key cards and key fobs provide residents a sense of status and security giving the community a high-end feel while also providing security.
2. Community Paging and Announcement Systems
Each summer around Atlanta, Georgia kids flock to community swimming pools to cool off and participate in competitive swim teams. Communities that host summer swim teams need to provide a speaker system for directors to communicate with swimmers and make announcements. Adding a paging and speaker system to an outdoor pool provides residents a way to communicate announcements pool wide as well as provides swim teams an easy announcement system for meets. Paging systems can be installed outside by the pool or inside at a computer with a microphone.
3. Mounted TV's
Luxurious, clean and welcoming clubhouses entice residents to gather and host parties. Providing an accessible TV for guest to use during the day or for events is an easy enhancement to set the community apart from others in the area. When installing a new TV for a clubhouse it is important to keep with a sleek, modern design and the easiest way to each this is by mounting the TV on the way and hiding the wires. A professional TV mounting company such as Crime Fighters of Atlanta can help you achieve the clean, modern look a professional TV mount provides.
4. Media Theaters and Projection Screens
Along with sleekly mounted TV's, a top notch clubhouse offers guest movie nights and the opportunity to rent out the clubhouse movie theater for their own enjoyment. A clubhouse movie entertainment area can be achieved by installing a projection screen in any desired location. Projection screens can be added to any part of the clubhouse to accommodate the seating and room dimensions and do not need a private area to be successful. Projection screens will also provide corporate residents a place to host meetings and conduct business. Having a theater and business center for residents to enjoy is a great amenity to offer.
5. Surround Sound Speakers
Music makes everyone happy and is one of the easiest entertainment services to offer community residents. Exterior speakers can be placed around community pools, along parks and playgrounds and inside community clubhouses and fitness facilities. Speakers can be hidden or standard, wall-mounted and come in wired and wireless options. Once speakers are installed they are connected back to a central entertainment station that receives music through radio frequency and can play music from CD's and smart devices. Residents can be given access to the entertainment hub during events or a control system can be set-up to allow only HOA members or event coordinators access. Either way, offering sound during events to residents is an easy way to bring in enjoyment and set your community apart
