Your reception area is the first opportunity to make an impression on customers as they enter the door. Make sure that you are presenting a positive image and making visitors feel comfortable by carefully selecting furniture for the reception area. Here are a few things to think about as you furnish the space, as suggested in the article “Choosing Reception Furniture for Your Office”:
- Make it aesthetically pleasing. Avoid the standard, boring waiting area furniture and take advantage of all of the furniture options that are out there. Find something that fits with your company and your interest in your customers. Consider things like color and durability as you shop.
- Find a professional reception desk. You want to let your customers know that you are organized and on top of things, so make sure to find a professional desk that will allow a receptionist to keep things neat and orderly.
- Don’t forget about the kids! If you are expecting kids in your reception area, consider providing a small table with toys, books, or puzzles for their entertainment. If there are kids around, you will also want to stay on top of cleaning up any spills and messes to keep the reception area looking clean.
Make a strong first impression on your customers by creating a comfortable, professional, and unique reception space!
