The furniture in your reception area makes your first impression before you even step into the room.

Making a good first impression is crucial when meeting potential customers or clients for the first time. However, have you ever thought about the impression you make even before your first impression? Whenever anyone walks into your office, whether a lead or a returning client, they’re greeted by your receptionist, and your reception area. The office furniture you choose for your reception area can be crucial in that person’s judgement of your business.

How to revamp your Office Reception Area

Is your office reception area looking a bit rundown? Is the hideous office design scaring away your clients?

Then it’s time to revamp your office reception area.

An office reception area is the first impression your clients have about your business services and level of professionalism.

When clients walk into your business, you want them to have positive vibes about your business brand.

You can create these positive vibes with great office furniture and a stylish interior design.

But where do you start?

First, decide on your color theme. You can start to brainstorm about the colors you will use for the reception area based on popular color themes used in your industry. Tie those color themes with your business brand colors and you will have a unique design. When in doubt, go for neutral colors such as gray, cream and blue. Neutral colors will help you create an illusion of a more spacious reception area because light reflects off of neutral colors.

If you prefer a more modern look, go for brighter colors rather than dark colors.

Remember, your color theme should be warm and inviting to your clients as well as your staff of employees.

Next, you should create a list of furniture items that will increase your work productivity while enhancing the comfort of clients and employees alike. People return to environments that make them feel good.

Here is a list of essential reception area furniture items:

  • The reception desk. The best reception desks have curved countertops to give receptionists a great overview of the office space and help clients easily place documents on the desks without taking up space for your staff of receptionists. Your staff can also assist more than one client at a time with such a design. The most popular reception desks for modern office spaces are rectangular office desks and L-shaped desks.

  • Reception area seating. When it comes to seating in the reception area, you should furnish the office with ergonomic chairs and sofas that maximize space and comfort. It is important that clients have plenty of space between each other to prevent aggravation during long waiting periods. The best reception lounge chairs are those that feature cushioned seating and offer plenty of back support.

  • File Cabinets /Storage furniture items. Receptionists can never have enough storage because filing is part of their daily work routine. Purchase vertical and horizontal filing cabinets to make the most of your storage area. When your staff has the appropriate storage, you can de-clutter your office and make it more welcoming to your clients. If the receptionist area is well organized, clients will get the impression that your business services will keep their private matters in order. Edwards & Hill Office Furniture recommends storage for magazines as well as brochures for those visiting your office.

Reception Area Design: How to Positively Reflect Your Business Brand

Friday, December 28th, 2012

If you want business success in 2013, you need to design a reception area that reflects your business brand and makes your customers feel right at home.

How do you accomplish this objective?

First, you need to clearly identify the message you want to convey about your business when your clients first enter your reception area.

Do you want a high end professional reception area, a casual reception area or a home atmosphere?

This decision will be based on your business type and the level of sophistication of your customer base.

One feature your reception area should include is articles of your business success stories – frame them and hang them on the walls.

You may even want to run an educational video in the waiting room that highlights the services your business offers.
Serve coffee, tea and small treats in the reception area. Self-serve stations are the best for customer convenience.
Don’t forget to have clean, vibrant walls and good lighting throughout your reception. Freshly painted walls can brighten up any reception room. Also office plants should be purchased for added warmth and appeal.
