What is a visitor likely to notice about my office’s reception area first?

Everything about your office’s reception area, from the lighting to the flooring and furniture, should work together to tell a visitor something about your business and brand. The type of front desk or credenza you choose helps convey whether your office is casual, boldly creative, or sleekly professional. You want visitors to feel comfortable approaching your reception desk. Incorporating media and technology helps you communicate clearly with guests while projecting a modern image and providing patients or customers with a source of entertainment while they’re waiting for service. Visitors are most likely to judge your office on how clean its appearance is, so if your office furniture is outdated, outworn, or stained, it could cost you a valuable first impression.

I want to transform my reception area with new furniture. Where do I start?

We recommend designing your reception area with the needs and preferences of your clientele in mind. If you cater to an older clientele, you may want to go with a more traditional design layout, such as a dark color scheme and classic-looking artwork and décor. If you attract a younger clientele, you may wish to consider brighter, vibrant colors and avant-garde artwork and décor. The reception desk is key to setting the overall tone and style. Your reception desk should be approachable and uncluttered.

No matter what style you choose, items of consideration include a reception desk and chairs, area rugs, coat racks, coffee tables, clocks, reception media, bookcases, magazine racks, and reception lounge chairs, sofas, or loveseats. Adding some fake or low-maintenance plants or a small area with coffee or tea can also help you create a calm, welcoming presence. When selecting couches and chairs for your visitors, be sure to choose furniture that is comfortable and easy to get up from when it’s time for their appointment.
