Did you know that the ordinary person spends about 22 minutes in a waiting room? With visitors consuming this much time it is essential to make sure that you leave a lasting impression while also making sure they are relaxed and feel welcomed. This article is going to go over a few ideas on how to layout your reception area.
Your reception area should reflect your business or company while also making your guests feel welcome. Knowing how to design their reception area or lobby can be challenging that’s why we’ve come up with tips and information to help you through the layout and design process.
Before you start the design process you want to have a notion of where visitors enter and exit. Make sure that you’re reception area is in a clear location that is simple to find so callers know where to go. You want to be sure that traffic flows smoothly but there’s no bottlenecking across traffic. Have a separate exit to keep guests moving so they don’t have to backtrack their steps.
Your reception area furniture is the most primary part of your reception area because it’s the first thing that guests see when they enter and determines how content they will be. The reception desk is the focal point of your facility so make sure that it is visible and quickly accessible. Find a reception desk that fits all of your requirements when it comes to storage because the last thing you want is for clients to see a bunch of documents and empty cartons on your desk.
Make certain that you get the right size reception desk that fits all of your requirements such as printers and computers and phones. Make sure that you select a finish that coordinates your decor while also choosing long-wearing woodgrain laminate. Most importantly be sure to measure everything so that you know that your reception furniture will fit in your existing space. With reception area seating, you should also know that your reception furniture will fit without any problems.
To decide how many chairs you will need, think about how many people are using your chairs on your most active days. When measuring leave extra room between chairs. You should also examine the patterns you want to use such as a square or U shape are some of the multiple things to contemplate when selecting office reception furniture. First is it comfortable? Having uncomfortable furniture can make the wait time feel especially long for those waiting for 20 minutes or longer.
You should also view their ages, sizes, and mobility issues. This will help you determine if you need chairs with or without arms along with various sizes. You also need to decide what type of upholstery you want. If you have high traffic areas you will want to find upholstery than can be quickly cleaned. Lastly, find reception furniture that fits your budget and plan for enough lead time if you need your reception area done by a certain time.
The color you choose for your reception area furniture can change the way your guests feel. Blue is a reassuring color and indicates honesty and safety. Green is soothing. Colors that are yellow or red can cause stress and resentment. When choosing colors for your reception area furniture keep in mind your business colors.
Another added characteristic you may want to examine is making power outlets easily available so users can charge their cell phones, tablets, or laptops. For some clients work doesn’t stop so providing them with free Wi-Fi can be an excellent addition. Even adding some TVs can be an excellent way to present information about your company or give them a virtual tour.
Even if you have the ideal reception area, implementing great service is the key to keeping your customers happy. Your receptionist was the first person that your visitors will come in communication with so be sure that they have a smile on their faces. Also, be sure to always keep your reception area tidy including your reception desk. Make sure that your customers feel welcome by offering to hang up their coat or giving them a glass of water or coffee and remember to never keep your customers waiting so they don’t have a negative experience.
