Whatever industry you’re in, the importance of your business’ reception area cannot be understated. It’s the first thing your customers or clients see when they walk into your business and is the physical “face” of your brand.
There are a few interior design tricks you can use that will without a doubt make your reception and lobby area stand out from your competitors – regardless of what industry you’re in.
Open concept reception areas are a fail-safe design method your business can use to effortlessly give off a welcoming, friendly, modern, and professional feel to your visitors. Enclosed spaces can easily feel claustrophobic and even cluttered. While there’s no need to avoid furniture completely, it is important to strike a balance between a modern, open-area concept and a fully furnished space.
As with any commercial or residential space, lighting plays a pivotal role in bringing the feel of an indoor environment together. We recommend trying to choose soft, warm white lights to give your reception area a warm, personable, and comfortable feel.
Just like your lighting choices, selecting the right colors for the walls, décor, and furniture of your reception area can heavily influence the space. Colors play a big role in influencing people’s emotions, so it’s crucial to select shades that simultaneously deliver a positive message to your incoming clientele as well as shades that properly represent your brand.
We strongly encourage businesses to consider incorporating artistic elements to add a little personal flair to reception areas. However, if you’d prefer to add an extra bit of life and color in a more subtle fashion, plant life can be a really calming yet vibrant addition to any reception environment.
There are so many factors to consider when it comes to designing the perfect space for your business to thrive. From the reception area to conference rooms and even the office kitchen, every area has an important role to play in order to make a business truly shine.
