How to Choose Furniture for an Office Reception Area

How to Choose Furniture for an Office Reception Area

When it comes to choosing furniture for your reception area you need to make sure that the area is attractive and functional because it is the front window to your business. A practical design and space planning plays an important part when it comes to furnishing your office reception area.

Reception Desk

You need to make sure you add a welcoming entrance to your business as the reception desk is usually the first thing a visitor sees when they walk into the office. Therefore a reception area that looks inviting, professional and well-designed is a must; it’s the first impression that visitors will get of your business.  If you don’t have much space in your reception area and need to have a small desk that makes a lasting impression then a reception desk starter unit would be perfect. However, if size isn’t compromised in your office then you can create a modular reception unit in any shape using a reception desk starter unit, curved reception desk corner unit and a return reception desk.

Reception Chairs

You will need a good ergonomic office chair for your receptionist to sit on. Your receptionist will sit down for nearly 8 hours a day so choose a chair that’s supportive and comfortable. The reception area will also need visitor chairs. Choose chairs that are attractive and comfortable, but make sure it is sturdy and easy to clean. There will be a lot of people sitting on the chairs every day so it needs to be easy to maintain.


Office storage is crucial for your reception area to store paperwork and other projects. Filing cabinets and under desk pedestals are practical and can also be hidden out of sight under the desk.
