If you want to get 2013 off to a flying start, what better way than by revamping your reception area? This is the first thing visitors see when they enter your premises and so it’s important that it gives the perfect impression.
The great thing is, there is so much fabulous reception furniture for you to choose from that you shouldn’t struggle to find the perfect items.
Are you sitting comfortably?
One of your priorities may be your seating. After all, when potential customers, business partners and other people come to your premises, they’ll expect to feel comfortable and relaxed while they wait. If suitable seating isn’t available, this can give the wrong impression and it can sour people’s mood.
There are lots of superb reception seating options for you to consider and the sort you go for will depend on a number of factors.
For example, what style are you trying to convey? If you want to create a funky, modern look, you might decide tub chairs are ideal. These come in a variety of colours and designs, but they all have a contemporary feel. Also, you can use modular seating to create impressive visual effects that have a playful and fun appearance.
On the other hand, maybe something more traditional would suit. To achieve this effect, perhaps leather seating would be perfect. This has a classy and sophisticated elegance and is well worth considering.
Of course, there’s also practicality to consider. You’ll need to think carefully about how many people may use your seating at once and try to accommodate them. After all, forcing people to stand around does not come across as very professional.
If you need a lot of seating, modular solutions may be ideal and, depending on the nature of your organisation, you might also want to consider beam seating.
The ideal desk
There is also the desk to think about. Virtually all receptions feature desks of some description. Indeed, this item of furniture tends to be the focal point of the whole space. Thankfully, there are lots to choose from.
As well as finding versions that look right, you’ll need to make sure they are the right size. If you only use one receptionist, fairly small products might be the best option. On the other hand, if your reception area is busy and more staff members are needed to run it, bigger versions are needed.
Those little extras
While seating and desks may be the most important products you buy, it’s important to consider the little extras too. Overlooking these details can be a huge mistake. After all, they aren’t expensive to purchase and they can really add to the overall look and feel of your reception.
For example, you might benefit from investing in coat stands, coffee tables and entrance mats.
