Get the Most out of Your Reception Area
Have you given much thought to your lobby, reception area, or waiting room lately? It’s an important part of a business that, unfortunately, often gets overlooked. The reception area might be the place where visitors form their very first impression of your business — whether they are clients, customers, vendors, or patients. It’s the perfect place for you to exhibit your business’ products, services, and values. What impressions is your reception area creating for your guests?
Set the Tone
A reception area should be practical, welcoming and informative. Even if it is not a space where visitors will spend much time, it is still the ideal space — you have a captive audience, after all — to promote your business and leave a lasting impression. You will certainly want to attractively display your logo. But it’s also an excellent place to highlight industry awards, press coverage, or photos or displays that otherwise showcase your brand.
The office furniture, materials, and colors you choose can all supplement the message you want to convey. If you have a receptionist, the reception desk should be a welcoming centerpiece to the lobby. It’s important that this also be a practical space for your receptionist to greet visitors, take calls, and do other work. Depending on your visitors’ requirements, the reception space may also need to be a comfortable one that allows your guests to relax, hold quick meetings, or work on laptops. The furniture should be cohesive and complimentary. And the colors, finishes and lighting should all contribute positively to the first impression you wish to convey to your visitors.
