Front desk, Reception desks, Office desk
Your reception area is usually the first thing that visitors to your premises see, so it’s vital to create a good first impression. So your choice of front desk/reception desk is key. Reception desking should perform two important roles; to the business it must be a fully functional workstation and to visitors it should be welcoming and portray the company’s image. It’s a piece of furniture that can set the tone for the rest of the workplace; therefore it needs to be carefully chosen.
When deciding which reception desk to buy, the available space will dictate the actual size of desk. Reception areas vary. Consider the number of staff occupying it at any one time along with any storage and equipment requirements. All this information will influence the type of desk needed.
There are some great ‘off-the-shelf’ products available; however, if you have space restrictions or want something unique, you may want to look at a more bespoke solution. This option allows you to specify the style, size and finish to suit the space. Whatever route you decide, you should also ensure that the front desk/reception desk is DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) compliant.
