Your office's or workplace's reception area should be and hopefully is designed and space planned to offer staff and visitors alike a functional area, for many reasons, including: 
The flow of people 
It is an area of authority 
Somewhere for deliveries and storage 
It is a place for conversation and collaboration 
It can be somewhere to display marketing materials 
The reception area should also be practical and visually satisfying too. 
 
Here are some examples of the reception furniture ranges, brands and styles available. Create the right first impression for your workplace. 
 
How can you improve your reception space? 
Seating. Could where visitors sit be improved? Are the chairs or sofas comfortable, clean and in good condition wear and tear wise? 
Area. This is the main and central point of your office. How does it look from an outsider's view? It is clean, nicely decorated with pictures and rugs?  
Brand. Do the colours of the furniture and decor represent your brand? Do you showcase your work and marketing collateral?  
Lighting. Is the area well lit and welcoming? 
What else? What else could you offer such as technology, wi-fi, drinks, food, TV screen and so on?
