As is easy to guess, the reception deskis a very special space in a company for many reasons. The first one is that it is the first image we give of it. In addition, it serves us by the same to transmit the identity of our own company in the way in which we choose. That is why we want to offer you some decoration tips for the reception of your company below. You can find numerous alternatives to do so in our office furniture catalogue.
1.- Take into account the furniture of your reception
One of the essential points when decorating a reception and giving it a good image of our own company is to choose the furniture well. This must be based on the identity of the company and we must understand it as an essential element to transmit our values with it. With this, we must take into account its colour and design.
On the other hand, the reception should be a transit space but at the same time waiting in many cases. For this reason, we must provide it with enough chairs so that those who have to wait do not have to do it standing up. In this sense, we also recommend you consider including puffs at your reception. We must also have basic reception furniture such as counters as well as coat racks where objects that are brought from the street can be left. You can not miss tables for reading, plants and in general all the elements that increase comfort.
The distribution of reception is another of its essential elements. This is the result of the conjunction of space with the elements found in it. That is why, first of all, take into account the space we have so as not to overcrowd it. A good option to make the most of the space and give a feeling of spaciousness are reception desks such as those at Interior Solutions.
3.- Better to contribute neutral colours if you are not clear on the idea
In a recent article on office decoration, we talked about the impact that colour has on the different environments of a workspace such as an office. In the case of orange, it is a suitable colour for these reception spaces as a consequence of the fact that it conveys joviality and warmth.
However, if you are not sure what colour to use, we recommend that you go for neutral tones. These will help, on the one hand, to increase the feeling of spaciousness and, on the other, to make the most of the colour of the furniture, making it more lively and with a more dynamic appearance of the entire room.
4.- Don’t forget the natural elements
We have also told you at Interior Solutions about ecological offices. These are offices that, in addition to offering greater and better energy performance and more responsible use of it, offer green spaces. These are a great encouragement for both workers and people who visit our reception. Therefore, they are an element that we cannot forget: placing small plants in places where they do not hinder is always a great option to give a touch of freshness.
5.- Art and entertainment, essential aspects in a reception
When decorating a reception, we should also provide it with artistic elements as well as entertainment elements. In the first case, it is a very good idea to hang photographs or pictures that contribute to making the entire space visually richer. They also help create a feeling of calm and tranquillity.
Whenever possible, we can also offer entertainment elements such as a television that serves to liven up the wait. This is especially indicated for businesses where the waits can be long, for example, in clinics in general and the dentist in particular.
