Whatever your business, if customers or potential clients are likely to be visiting, then to give them the best impression of your company you need to give them a good experience right from the very start. For many companies, the place where people will start to form their opinion of you is at the reception, so having an organised and comfortable reception and waiting area is integral.
Having the right meeting furniture and office tables is one thing, but if you dont have the right reception area, people are going to feel underwhelmed no matter how much effort you have put into the rest of your offices.
Having a stylish reception desk is not going to put you back a whole lot more than having a generic one, but the difference in the impression it will create can be immense. Not only that, but a higher quality reception area will also have many more places for storage and will be designed much more intricately with the user in mind, meaning that the staff on reception can keep a much more orderly space around them, yet again creating a very good impression on those visiting.
The reception should be laid out in an inviting way, leaving enough space for visitors to feel able to relax, with a wide range of interesting (and current) literature for them to read whilst they wait. Having comfortable chairs in your waiting area is also important as, if the guest has to be kept waiting, they wont even notice if they are made as comfortable and welcome as possible.
That isnt to say that if you create the right reception you can skimp on everything else. Your meeting furniture and office tables should be not only good quality, but also versatile enough for you to arrange them as each individual meeting needs, creating the most conducive atmosphere to achieve the results you want to see.
