The Importance of A Reception Area Design

November 30th, 2018 | Best Office Furniture

At Arenson Office Furniture, we’re your best source for reception desks in San Diego, and we’re passionate about the importance of proper office furnishings. We truly believe that the proper design and layout of your furniture in your office is critical for every aspect of your business, especially in your reception area.

So, why is a good reception area design so important?

Overall Look of Your Office

First things first, you need to pick a receptionist desk that fits the design and theme of your office. Do you have a new, modern open-office floor plan? You may want to consider a large, round reception desk, like the OFM Marque reception station, that allows for 360-degree access, so that staff and clients alike can communicate with the receptionist.

And, if you have a more traditional office with carpeting, and individual offices, you may want a large, traditional desk like a Cherryman Amber reception desk, which provides plenty of space and lends a visually-impressive focal point to your reception area.

 Staff Requirements

Reception desks are, first and foremost, functional objects. Your reception staff will need the proper reception desk dimensions, plenty of storage, and features like built-in power outlets, as well as organizational features to help keep them on top of their workload.

A sub-par reception desk will decrease the efficiency of your receptionist and could be frustrating and difficult to use. Choose a reception desk that offers all the features your staff needs – to ensure they’re happy and satisfied.

Visual Appeal for Clients and Visitors

If you’ve ever visited a company that has an oddly-shaped or poorly-defined reception area, you know exactly how uncomfortable it can feel. Maybe the desk was too small or too far into the office – or there was no front desk at all. You don’t know where to go, who to talk to in order to check-in, and where to sit when waiting for an appointment or consultation.

That’s exactly what you want to avoid when creating your own reception area. Choosing a high-quality solution creates a focal point for your entrance and adding a nearby sitting area is the best way to ensure that your visitors and clients know exactly where to go when coming to your office. It makes things easy to understand and intuitive for visitors.

In addition, a beautiful, custom-branded design helps your office seem more impressive and professional and ensures that your entire office space fits your brand’s image and helps promote your company.

Reception – The Face of Your Company

Everyone who visits your company will see your reception area first. It’s the face of your company!

Invest in a reception desk and other reception necessities, like a comfortable seating area with high-quality office furniture from Arenson Office Furniture, and you’re sure to notice a difference in your company right away.
