Are You In Charge Of Setting Up The Reception Area Of A New Business?

Posted on: 26 April 2019

Are you the owner of a new business? Perhaps you have recently opened a weight loss center, or maybe you are starting your own dental practice. Or, you might not be the owner or even a manager at your place of business, but you are the designated person to set up the new reception area. Whatever the circumstances, from buying modern reception desks to selecting artwork for the reception area, here are some ideas that might help you.

 Reception Desks - Do you already know exactly how you want to decorate the reception area of the new business? If so, you certainly don't need to read another word, right? However, if you are still in the planning stages, consider the feeling you want to establish for customers when they first come to your place of business. 

For example, if you want a contemporary feeling in the reception area, consider buying modern furniture. Think of selecting a metal table with a sleek, simple design. Don't focus on a desk that has storage space in it. Instead, think of selecting a desk that could actually be used as an elegant dining room table, but on a smaller scale. Or, choose a wooden desk, also of a simple design, and select a heavy glass top for the surface space. Buy a separate piece of contemporary furniture that can serve as a storage area for things like computer paper and other office supplies. 

If you do select a wooden desk, consider buying an unfinished one that can be painted a specific color. For example, perhaps you want to establish a dramatic contemporary look in the reception area. If so, consider having the desk painted a bright color. Turquoise, yellow or green are all good choices for a bright contemporary setting. Choose a comfortable desk chair that will complement the modern reception desk you select. 

The Artwork - If you went with a modern reception station, think of choosing contemporary artwork, too. For instance, if you went with a colorful wooden modern reception desk, think of selecting a modern painting that has the same color as the desk as the focal part of the design. 

If you went with a contemporary metal desk, the desk is probably gray, right? Colorful artwork will add interest to the reception area. No matter the artwork, consider choosing metal frames that will complement the desk in the reception area.
