First, consider your facilities
Just like everything else, the first and most obvious step is to come up with a good plan to improve your parking lot. A part of this process involves understanding the facilities available to you. For example, if you are limited in space, you may want to consider adding a second level to your lot. Sure, this isn’t a cheap option but it most certainly will fit double the number of cars and will make it easier you’re your customers to find a spot.
If you’re located in an area that gets a lot of sun during the day, consider adding a roof to provide some shade to parked vehicles. Your customers wouldn’t have to worry about returning to an oversized oven if they spend a little extra time. Safety is of great importance to every car owner, so consider installing security cameras throughout your parking lot.
Second, improve curb appeal
One way to improve your parking lot’s attractiveness is to improve its curb appeal. This means painting walls, painting trims and landscaping. Pick colours wisely and try to avoid darker colours in most places – they make the space look more cramped!
Plant trees, shrubs or flowers where there is space, and use an attractive design for the pedestrian pavements. However, too much of something can be bad! So choose your placements carefully.
Landscaping can work wonders in bridging the gap between looking like a barren abandoned land and a well-maintained professional parking lot. When done right, it will transform your parking lot entirely.
Third, invest in signage
One way to improve your parking lot is to invest in signage. Adding proper signs and replacing old – worn out ones will give ease navigation. Your customers will be able to find exits and parking spots faster, which means that they would have to spend less time at the parking lot.
Make sure that your signs are aligned properly, to avoid unnecessary confusions. Remember how you felt the last time a sign pointed towards an exit that wasn’t there?
Fourth, ensure your parking lines are visible
Faded lines make your parking lot look outdated and generally gives a bad first impression about your business (essentially, your customers will be at your parking lot before the inside of your building). Not to mention, poorly visible parking borders mean that your customers will find it harder to identify a parking spot. If you have reserved parking spaces for pregnant or disabled customers, make sure you have it painted well and clear on the parking spot.
