5 Things Every Good Office Reception Should Have

office receptionCreating a good first impression is extremely important for any business, with many potential clients strongly influenced by their first few minutes inside the building.

As the first point of contact any customer or client will have with your business, your reception area should be at a high standard, designed to reflect the same values of the company to entice visitors. We’ve listed our top 5 things every good reception area should have below:


There should be enough seating for your average level of visitor traffic, allowing visitors to sit comfortably while they wait for you. Seating should be in keeping with your company colours and style, and kept clean with minimal wear at all times.


The floor should be kept clean and tidy at all times, with no stains or scuff marks visible. It is also useful to think about what type of flooring is best suited to your reception area; for example, hardwood is a classic flooring that can suit any style, whereas more plush carpet flooring is well suited to creating a luxurious atmosphere.


For an added professional touch, you can have your company name or logo incorporated into the decor of your reception area. We can do this with blinds and screens, creating a great sense of brand identity for visitors as soon as they enter the door.


It’s important to have the right lighting for your visitors – too bright or too dark can be overly harsh and have a negative impact. Aim for natural lighting for the best impression in your reception area.

Added touches

A few personal touches are a great way to quickly transform your reception area from mundane to attractive. Adding in plants for greenery, stationary with the company brand, and complimentary refreshments are all ideal ways of making your reception area welcoming to visitors, and a sure way to create a lasting impression. You could also consider having low-level music playing, air fresheners to keep the reception area smelling fresh, and any entertainment (magazines, newspapers etc) that may be useful to visitors while they wait there.
