5 Essentials for Your Reception Area!

Little Goblins - Saturday, July 25, 2015

Meet Your Clients in Style

We’ve talked before about the value of designing your office space to promote productivity and employee happiness, but let’s not neglect the reception area! Whether you are a B2B or B2C company, there will always be a time when you welcome guests to your office. Whether we like it or not, first impressions count and your reception area is the location where you can take control of those first impressions.

Your reception room is like the formal living space of your company house. Just like in a home, a reception area has designated spaces and reflects the overall design of an office.

So what does it take to rock that first impression? Here are five things that can create an excellent reception space:

1. A Reception Desk

A stylish reception desk is a necessary piece and is arguably one of the focal point of the room. Your reception staff needs a comfortable and functional place to work and your guests should not be left wondering where to go when they first visit.

2. Comfortable Seating

It goes without saying that your staff needs comfortable seating in order to do their jobs. However, don’t forget about your visitors! Creating a comfortable space for them to relax while they wait is an excellent and simple way to display your company’s hospitality. Whether you want couches or stylish chairs, we’ve got a wide selection for you to explore.

3. Coffee Tables and End Stands

Why not take a step further and really make it feel like a home away from home? Add coffee tables or end stands. These pieces of furniture will help to create a more relaxed space. 

4. Magazines and Reading Material

Whether it’s material for long waits (who doesn’t appreciate them when waiting at the doctor’s office?) or purely for decorative purposes, magazines and coffee table books create a lived in space and soften the atmosphere.

5. Plants

Bring a little bit of nature indoors. This is great for air quality, as well as introducing an element that promotes calm. Plus, who wouldn’t enjoy a pop of green!
