Reception areas are a key space for any business as they are the place that visitors, customers, suppliers and job applicants wait in order to attend their relevant meetings. It is the place where first impressions are made.
Here are some handy tips to make your reception area welcoming to visitors.
Decoration – it is important that you keep this area as light and airy as possible so you won’t want to decorate it in dark colours. You might want to consider an accent wall over your reception desk, perhaps in a colour that links to your brand. Lighting is also important and having as much natural light as possible is preferable and if this is not possible due to the location of your office you should look to use high quality lighting to create a similar effect.
Seating – there is nothing worse than waiting for a meeting and having to stand up in the reception area. Reception Chairs are a great addition to any space and you can Find a reception chair that will fit in with your overall design theme and that will give a sense of comfort to those visiting.
Plants – adding some greenery to your reception area is an instant win as it brings some of the natural world into your office space.
