A stylish, well-designed office reception area is the perfect way to create a great impression about your business. However, whilst the way your reception looks says a lot about you and your company, it’s important that you portray the right image to your clients and customers, rather than intimidating them and making them feel inhibited!
Over the last couple of decades there was definite trend towards creating imposing reception areas: acres of marble flooring and glass were the norm, however things are changing and the latest vogue is for reception areas that are a little more welcoming and friendly.
It’s important that you portray the right image to your clients
If you think your reception area could do with a little t.l.c., it’s worth bearing in mind that the office reception is very important – simply because it’s the ‘front-door’ to your business. A reception area should look human, but on the other hand it should also look neat, tidy and stylish. Striking the balance between the two can be difficult, however there’s a huge range of specialist reception area furniture available, with options to suit all tastes and budgets.
We work with a number of leading furniture suppliers, several of whom make incredibly stylish reception furniture and fittings. Steelcase’s ‘Sidewalk’ range, for example, includes stunning leather seating, along with various sizes of glass-topped tables. Bold, eye-catching furniture such as this is a great way to add a focal point to your reception area and will convey business-like, professional image.
A purpose-built reception desk is an excellent idea, especially for larger businesses and office premises. Our design team have the expertise to create custom make reception desks and fitted furniture and there are also a range of ‘off the peg’ options available.
So if your reception area is looking a little past its best, why not contact us for further information on how we could help you create a stylish space, designed to impress your clients, customers or visitors?
