Reception areas define your business impression
Your reception area is an integral part of your business. It is the first space of your office that clients, visitors, employees, and potential staff see when they enter the building. How you present your reception area is vital to the look you project to those same people. That means you must make the perfect first impression.
Having a poor reception area can damage your reputation, even before you’ve even met with visitors. Plenty of thought and consideration is required when thinking about the image you want your business to display – this is integral for certain industries in particular.
Real estate agencies, for example, must portray an immediate feeling of professionalism and trust, so homeowners and potential buyers feel comfortable in the level of service that they will be receiving.
However, regardless of your industry, there are key aspects that combine to make a great reception area:
- Warmth – having a welcoming and comfortable setting
- Color – vibrant colours that help represent your businesses culture
- Uniqueness – personalise your area, to make it distinctly relatable to your business
- Practicality – consider what your space needs and doesn’t need
Keep in mind that although your impression is important to external stakeholders, it is equally as important to your staff. They need to be inspired when they enter the building. They also need to feel proud that they are working in your office. If those two basic needs are met, it will improve performance and retention.
Although it is important to be considered when designing your reception area, it also a location that you can get creative with. Various design features can be included such as designer furniture, acoustic panelling, or a feature wall. No matter what you choose, once combined, the features should complement one another and create an overall visual and comfortable experience for your guests.
