You only get one chance to make a first impression, so it’s important that you make it count with reception furniture that reflects your business. Taking the time to select furniture for this area that compliments the rest of the working environment is essential in ensuring you portray the right image.
Whether existing or potential clients, employees or other visitors, people will get a feel for the kind of company you are the minute they enter the reception area. From the condition of the reception furniture and interior design to how the receptionist greets them, everything they see, hear and feel will influence their perception of your company.
A key piece of the furniture is the reception desk. It’s the main focal point of the room, therefore it’s positioning is important. It should be easily accessible and positioned so that staff have a clear view of all visitors. The overall height should provide privacy for the receptionist, but at the same time remain welcoming.
Although, as well as having a great looking, functional desk, it’s also important visitors are comfortable, therefore providing adequate seating is a must. Generally this area can experience high volumes of traffic, so, it’s essential to opt for durable material that won’t wear or show dirt easily.
Quite often we come across reception areas that are of an unusual shape, if this is the case, rather than squeeze in standard items; you may want to think about bespoke options.
