Read on to discover what you should consider and how to make the best choices for your business.
What size reception desk should I buy?
The size of your reception desk will largely depend on the size of your waiting room. If you have a small reception area, we recommend choosing a compact waiting room desk that’s designed with a small footprint to be used by one receptionist at a time. If you’re working with a larger waiting room, you should utilize the space by equipping it with a larger reception desk. Just as a large reception desk will make a small waiting room look cramped, a small reception desk in a very large waiting room will make the room look disproportioned.
Modular reception desks are ideal for most offices as they can be made larger or smaller to fit your space as needed. We’ve designed our Compass collection with this idea in mind, allowing you to configure a workstation that perfectly fits your waiting room no matter how large or small.
What shape reception desk should I buy?
Reception desks come in a variety of sizes, and you’ll want to choose one that best suits the needs of your receptionists and your guests.
Single surface reception desks have a single writing surface for the receptionist or receptionists as well as a transaction counter for guests to write on. These may be straight or curved and come in a range of sizes to suit one or more receptionists in your waiting area. Smaller versions of this type of reception desk are also commonly used in restaurants and other hospitality settings.
What type of materials should my reception desk be made of?
There’s plenty to choose from! These are the most popular options.
Although laminate can be made to look like it has real wood grains, it is actually made from some form of particle board with or without a wood grain print. Desks that have a laminate surface construction are ideal for high traffic offices because laminate does not scratch or dent easily and is generally easier to maintain and keep clean. Laminate is also an affordable option, making it a great choice for businesses on a tight budget.
