Choosing the Best Reception Furniture
You will never get that second chance to leave a first impression, so make sure it is done right the first time. As the first impression for your business, you want your office reception space to leave guests highly impressed with your space from the moment they enter.
When people walk into your office space, they have already made some kind of assumption about you or your company. A boring or uncomfortable space gives the impression that you may be the same, so it is time to step it up and rethink that guest area. From small details such as plants and decoration, to selecting the right office reception desk, here are some tips to help you when thinking about your reception area.
Pick a stylish yet functional office reception desk. They come in all shapes, sizes, styles, and finishes depending on the aesthetic you are after. Be sure to choose one that makes your office receptionist accessible to guests, facing the entrance.
Then, add some comfortable reception chairs for guests to relax in while they wait. You can go modern or classic, depending on the look and feel of your office space. In your office reception area, place occasional tables such as coffee tables and side tables, with some magazines or newspapers out for guests to peruse.
Hang some art on the walls so guests aren’t stuck staring at a plain wall. You can go bold or classy, depending on the overall workplace aesthetic. You could also hang a TV somewhere and have the news on. This shows that you like to stay current, and keeps your visitors entertained.
Maybe add some plants (that are easy to maintain). You can put small ones on the office reception desk, or on the small reception tables, and possibly some larger ones in a corner.
Make sure to have your company logo somewhere in the space, preferably making it one of the first things people see when they enter through the front door. Add a water cooler or coffee machine, or be sure to offer it to guests that come in.
