A Few Things To Consider When Shopping For A Reception Desk

In most businesses, the reception area is the first thing you see as you walk through the door. This makes the reception desk important. When you go shopping to buy this piece of furniture, there are a few things you need to keep in mind and consider. This way, anyone who walks through the door will get a good idea of you and your business.

Size

One of the first things you need to consider is size not only of the desk but also the size of the area where it will be situated. You don't want the desk to overpower the room, but it must be big enough to hold everything that is needed for the receptionist to do his or her job. If things are crowded, it will appear as if your business is run in a disorderly fashion. One way of keeping the desktop from becoming messy is by having extra drawers or perhaps a side arm that holds the computer that can be accessed by swiveling the chair.

Style

When choosing a desk style, you need to think about what type of business you run. You do not want to have a strong, wooden, executive desk in the front room of a pediatric dental office, and would not do well to have a metal teacher's desk in your corporate office. Consider what would make your clients comfortable and feel at home, unless you are trying to show power and want everyone who enters to feel it.

Atmosphere

Consider what the rest of the room will look like when choosing he desk. If there will be overstuffed chairs in the waiting area, go for a plush looking desk. However, if the waiting area is modern and sleek, go for a desk to match; perhaps something glass or chrome. While it should be obvious where the receptionist is seated, it should not stick out like a sore thumb from the rest of the reception area.

Every person you are trying to do business with will see the reception area and the desk. You want this piece of furniture to look good, not shabby or broken. It needs to be comfortable for the receptionist and useful. Do not buy a desk on look alone; if it does not have the space or available drawers the receptionist will not be able to work efficiently. You want the desk to fit the room and your business, but you also want work to get done.
