Most reception rooms–whether they are for a medical practice or for a business–tend to be mundane at best. If you don’t even enjoy spending a few moments in your office space, it is time to change it at once! No visitor likes sitting in a reception area for long, and having an area that is not up to snuff can only make the wait seem that much longer. Take a step back, look closely at your reception room and see what you need to change. Here are our suggestions:
- Reception Desk: Make sure the desk you buy is in line with the overall decor of the office, and it is the first thing people see. A circular desk is more inviting, but see what works best with the other office furniture.
- Chairs: Besides style, the most important feature is comfort. Guests never know how long the wait will be, so new, comfy chairs and couches that match the decor is a good investment. While you are at it, add a coffee table piled with magazines related to your field or business. Make sure these are current subscriptions.
- Lighting: Replace old lights with modern light fixtures. A ceiling lamp, standing floor lamp, and a light for the reception desk are key.
