Impressing your visitors and clients at the reception is the first step to signing more deals and closing more sales. Make the most of your reception space with these simple tips.
Avoid cluttered and awkward layouts by providing ample space. This will allow for an easy flow of people throughout the area. Also, make sure it’s clear for newcomers to know where they’re supposed to go.
The chairs and sofas you choose for your reception should not only be comfortable but also durable and easy to clean. Don’t turn your visitors off with filthy, worn out seating that you’ll have to replace.
But it’s not just a good couch that your visitors need to be comfortable. Have good air conditioning, lighting (especially natural light), a television, and some coffee table books to keep them busy while they wait.
Install some organization shelves and storage drawers so that visitors don’t walk in to an overwhelmed receptionist at a messy desk full of undelivered packages, papers, and other effects.
While you can always decorate according to your brand guidelines, it’s ideal to keep your walls a neutral color, while adding personality to the area using company-themed artwork, plants, and other decorative items.
