Your reception or entrance lobby is likely to be where your visitor’s first impressions are formed and studies indicate opinions are made quicker than they can be undone. Catering to the senses, welcome spaces should be a comfortable temperature, well-lit and odour free. Consider homely facilities such as coat stands, charger points and desks for devices to meet your visitor’s needs.
Whether overtly or subtly, utilise the space to express your company branding through logos or accents of colour. The standards of the business should be reflected through visual cues like high-quality finishes and thoughtful furniture inclusions. Functional attributes like matting to remove dirt and debris from shoes on entering will improve the appearance and longevity of flooring throughout.
Ensure the upkeep of this initial investment is consistent to give the wow-factor time and time again.
