Modern Reception Areas: How Design Flexibility is Changing the Landscape of Business Thinking
Modern Reception Areas: How Design Flexibility is Changing the Landscape of Business Thinking

Years ago, modern reception area design was as foreign to business owners as speaking Swahili to the average American. However, in this day and age, more and more companies are starting to focus on how their businesses look up front—and the messages this area conveys. They are beginning to realize that the impression they make at first—and the impression visitors leave with—represents an important factor in their business success.

Shark Tank’s Robert Herjavec described his experience of seeing people for the first time when they come into the ...

How to Choose the Best Office Reception Area Furniture for Your Space

Whether you are occupying office space in your own building or renting space from an outside source, your reception area is an important zone to consider—and it requires thought and planning. This part of your office is where your customers, vendors, and employees walk through first—and leave last. Selecting reception furniture that creates a pleasing, welcoming environment while supporting function and everyday use is instrumental in the creation of a workspace that suits your company’s needs.

How to Choose the Perfect Size Reception Desk for “YOUR” Business
How to Choose the Perfect Size Reception Desk for “YOUR” Business

Your business is different in so many ways than the one next door, across town, or even in the next state. Your business reception area may be 200 square feet, while another is 2,000. Your reception area shape may be square and another rectangular, while still another is triangular with a radius back wall and bi-level on the opposite end. One business may have a need for a single user application, and another three, four or more. Your business may need customer face to face communication, and yet another total privacy. If that’s not enough, you still need to consider: job function, wheelchair access, user chair space, and user tools, just to start.

For these reasons and much more, finding the perfect size reception desk ready-made (for the person that really cares about their business details) is next to impossible.

Let’s assume for the moment you care about your business details, then, there are many things you need to evaluate to make sure you select the right size for your business because if you get it wrong, your business will pay in one way or another. Here’s an example of what I mean…

When Southeast Frozen Foods planned to move their office division to a new facility in Miramar, they called on 90 Degree Office Concepts for advice about moving their existing furniture.

Online Shopping Makes Outfitting Your Reception Area Challenging

When East Orlando Dental Association went in search of a pair or reception desks for their Orlando Florida office, they did what most modern, respectable companies do; they went shopping online. The problem they found was common…if they found the right desk, it was too small, if they found the right size it was the wrong color, and if they were lucky enough to find everything they need, it’s too expensive or had to wait much too long to get delivery. Welcome to the world of online shopping.

Fortunately for them, they found 90 Degree Office Con...

He felt the design of his center represented a direct reflection of his products and services. The ...

Modern Reception Areas-A Place to Communicate Your Brand’s DNA

Love at first sight

Like Britany, love at first sight for your brand is generated mainly by an emotional attraction. In the beginning, (in most cases) that attraction is based upon something you see insofar as very little may be known up front about what the brand is about. Like dating, if the brand can impress the customer, there is a good chance the customer may stick around for more.

Usually, the reason one will stick around for more is if they have an amazing experience during that first encounter.
