Think of your office reception as the face of your business. It’s one of the first things a visitor sees and can create a lasting impression that can be hard to shake if you get it wrong. That being the case, creating a reception area that portrays your business in the most positive light is essential. In this blog, we discuss what makes an office reception stand out (hint: it’s choosing the best possible furniture!).

So what goes into making an impressive office reception?
Firstly, you need to know your audience. If you’re in the sportswear business, you know your audience is likely to be cool, modern, and stylish. Your office reception furniture should mirror this in order to convey your brand message, and to give your visitors confidence that your business is right for them. On the other hand, businesses dealing in something like vintage and antique musical instruments may want to opt for something a little more classic with retro flair. Why not adorn your reception seating area with repurposed instruments to engage visitors?! The way you decorate is an easy place to start, however, without the right furnishings all your efforts can all be undone in a matter of seconds.

Office reception furniture that makes a (positive!) lasting impression…
Whether your visitor is sat waiting for a meeting, an interview, or just to look around, offering a relaxing place to sit is a great start in giving them that positive first impression. Of course, it all depends on the space you have to work with! At UHS Group, we offer reception seating ranging from space-saving side chairs that can be easily stacked and packed away, to luxurious sofas that add comfort and grandeur to larger reception areas.

Space-saving reception seating
Smaller offices are ever-increasing which means reception seating may need to be compact and agile – this by no means implies it has to look cheap or boring! When used with our padded seat cushion, our Moda Armchair can create a stylish seating area for your visitors that can be branded in colours to match your business. With metal or wood frame options available in a multitude of colours and finishes, it enables you to have full creative control over the finished product. On top of all this the chairs can be stacked, allowing you to open your reception space out and repurpose it when required, and the chairs can also be used outdoors.

Contemporary seating for your reception
For businesses who aren’t afraid to be different and thrive on standing out, UHS Group offer an array of reception seating that visitors will really remember you for! The plush panelled upholstery of our Kite Lounge Chair makes it a hard one to walk away from. The range of colours and fabrics to choose from mean you can make this chair as understated or eccentric as you like, making it a versatile choice for any reception seating area.

Sofa, so good…
If your reception is spacious, you have the privilege of being able to treat your visitors to a sofa area while they wait – an option they’re guaranteed to appreciate! Our Compton Sofa provides comfort whilst maintaining a professional feel, and can be fully customised in a range of fabrics and wood finishes.
