Office Receptions

Your office entrance and reception area is the first physical element of your business that your clients, customers and partners will see.

How you present your brand within this space is crucial because it has the potential to influence their future interactions with your organisation.

Arguably, the reception space of an office fit-out is one of the most important sections. A comfortable space is key to ensure your employees and guests feel welcome and relaxed, but it’s important to remember that first time visitors, be it potential clients or interviewees, will take in everything from your lighting and seating to reception desk and furnishings. Creating a professional and lasting impression of your business that gives visitors, stakeholders and partners confidence in your organisation is essential.

Office Reception Design and Fit-Out

If your reception space has a dual purpose and is utilised by employees as much as visitors, it’s important that style doesn’t override substance and functionality. Our experts have years of experience that enable them to create spaces that form a positive working environment for staff, offering them designated areas and desks for tasks, correct lighting, and comfort while they undertake their duties.

Often, a reception area will be a walk through area for employees stationed elsewhere in your building, and so a warm and inviting reception fit-out will begin the working day on the right foot.

A reception area that's fit for purpose

When it comes to designing a reception fit-out, it’s important to keep in mind the purpose of your reception area. Will you be holding regular meetings and need a large seating area? Is it a space for visitors to pop in and take a look at your products? Are the only visitors likely to be new employees or guests coming in to interview?

At SEC Interiors we have extensive experience of designing and implementing reception areas and fit-outs, and we know exactly what to ask to ensure you receive a space that suits your business. Every one of our clients is unique, and for that reason, we take the time to really understand what you need your reception area to achieve.
