Top tips to help you create the perfect reception

March 10, 2015

Of course, all areas of your office are important, but if you’re going to focus your efforts on revamping one particular part of your workspace, your reception should be it. This is the first thing that visitors see when they enter your premises, so it’s vital that it looks the part. A good reception can help you to impress customers and win contracts, meaning there’s no room for second best.
 
The following simple tips should help you to create the perfect area in which to meet and greet your guests.
 
Choose a top-quality desk
 
First and foremost, make sure you select an attractive, good-quality desk. This will form the focal point of your reception, so it must look the part. Luckily, you can now take your pick from an array of desks, ranging from conventional straight sided designs to contemporary curved creations.
 
Regardless of the style of item you choose, try to make sure it’s the perfect fit for your space. After all, no matter how impressive the desk is, it won’t look right if it’s too small or large. Before you commit to buying a particular product, it helps to measure your reception and draw up a to-scale plan to see how much space particular items will take up. This will require only a few moments of your time and it could help you to avoid making a potentially costly mistake.
 
Provide plenty of seating
 
Plenty of seating is another must in these areas. You don’t want to leave visitors standing while they’re waiting for their appointments. Don’t worry if you’re short on square footage. There are a host of innovative seating solutions on offer now that can help you to squeeze maximum usage out of every available inch.
 
For example, modular seats represent a compact option and you can choose from a wide selection of shapes, sizes and styles.
 
Invest in some extras
 
You may have covered the basics by this stage, but there’s plenty more that you can do to enhance this part of your office. For example, it’s worth carefully positioning a coat stand in your reception, and, providing you have space for it, a coffee table will make a great addition. For added impact, you can adorn this item of furniture with extras like newspapers, magazines and fresh flowers.
 
Attractive decor is important in this area too, and to reinforce your company ethos, you might want to include your corporate colours. Meanwhile, branded signage is a must, and you might benefit from incorporating digital displays in your reception.
 
A shrewd investment
 
Whipping this part of your office into shape might require some time, effort and money, but this should prove to be a savvy investment. It could help to bolster your company’s reputation and it may even drive sales, which is good news for your bottom line.
