Making The Most Of Your Reception Areas
The Reception Area of your workplace is where first impressions are made, so you need to make sure it delivers the right message.
Surveys have shown that the Reception Area and Boardroom are considered the two most important rooms in a company’s workplace. The Reception Area is the first room your visitors will see and they will quickly form an opinion about your company, your services, and you. So, don’t let your business down with a second-rate Reception.

LWI's Guide To Making The Most Of Your Reception Areas
The reception Desk basics
The first piece of furniture to invest in is the main Reception desk. The type of desk suitable for your workplace requires careful consideration, as it is often called upon to perform several functions.
- Style - Ideal Reception Desks need to be aesthetically suited to the type of business on offer, whether it is traditional or contemporary, and the design and style will need to reflect this.
- Practical - The Desk should be able to accommodate computer and telephony equipment safely, whilst keeping it out of sight to avoid the desk looking messy. Thought should be given to cable management and the provision of adequate storage. The desk should also cater to the needs of your visitors, e.g. should you require your visitors to sign in, the desk needs to be of a suitable height to make writing comfortable.
- Compliance – The Reception Desk should comply with the current Disability Discrimination Act and the disability policy held by the company. Aspects to consider include the design and layout.
- Signage – A Reception Desk can be used to accommodate signage, directing visitors or conveying information. There are many different types and styles available, and these can be used on a Reception Desk to great effect, creating a visually stunning impact.
The second piece of Reception furniture to consider is a seating area for visitors. This should consist of either separate Reception chairs, a sofa, or a combination of the two. It is also desirable to have a low, coffee-style table in the centre of the zone, to place magazines or marketing material upon, as well as drinks.
A company’s appearance plays a significant part on how they are perceived by their clients, and the Reception Area will be the first part of your business visitors will see. For this reason, it is vital that the Reception Area is as good as you can make it, and London Workplace Interiors can help you achieve the look you want to enhance your company’s profile.
