Does your reception area say “welcome in” to customers? It’s likely to be most visitors’ first impression of your business. Everything from the color of the walls to the quality of the office furniture matters. It’s worth every business owner’s time have a layout that will impress visitors with its professionalism while remaining comfortable. Here are some elements of your reception area that you shouldn’t overlook.
Seating. Comfortable chairs are a must for any reception area. Make sure that you have enough chairs or sofas—and enough room—for as many visitors as you might expect on a busy day. Arrange them with plenty of open space between them so that your visitors are not sitting too closely to each other. If you have the space, you might also add some tables with power ports so visitors can charge their devices and magazines on them to give your visitors something to read while they wait.
Décor. Adding the right décor to your reception area can give it the perfect touch. Tastefully arranged potted plants, lamps, mirrors, framed art and other accessories will give your room a unique character that many waiting rooms lack. Don’t be afraid to get creative and add the kind of furniture accessories you’ll find at Office Furniture Expo’s Showroom.
Colors. The color of your waiting room can have a surprising effect on the mood of the people there. For instance, soft blue and green shades tend to be calming and reassuring, which are suitable for most office environments. Whatever type of mood you aim to create in your reception area, it’s important to take some time to think about the mood you wish to create for your customers and employees.
