Reception Desk

A reception area often represents the brand whose space it is in. This is often one of the very first things you see when you walk into a commercial space. Therefore, it needs to put forward a great first impression on its’ viewers. Having a reception desk that is full of interest and flavour, will leave a good impression on its’ market.


Would you rather be in a space that dazzles you and invokes emotion, or a plain old space that bores you? We would totally rather be in a vibrant space, full of life. The following reception areas represent just that. These desks combine various colours, materials and textures to create a lasting impression. Wood and stone are great materials to use in a desk, and are sure to age well.


Lighting can make or break a space! Dark spaces often make the spaces feel much smaller and cramped. With brighter lighting, the space will look and feel larger and more open. Many reception areas have high ceilings. In this case, large chandeliers or pendants will make a statement, whilst lighting up the area. If the ceiling is low, smaller pendants above the desk, and downlights around the room will do the trick too.


Strip or rope lighting will help light up certain areas, and create ambient lighting. Using this lighting along passage ways help make the space feel less imposing, and more spacious. The following ideas can easily be altered and integrated into your room.


Flooring is an important part of any reception. There is bound to be many people tracking all around this space. The flooring needs to be suited to high traffic areas. Therefore, it needs to be durable, easy to clean and safe! We can help you find the perfect flooring for your space.
