Reception is the doorway to corporate office – a good reflection of company’s brand image, work culture, ethics and standards. It’s the initial point of contact between business owners and office visitors. This particular area hence needs to be prim and proper. This can be achieved by world-class interior decor and designing specific to the need of the welcome area of the office.

The ‘3 S’ Motto

Reception area designing is no small task. It’s ideal to stick to ‘3S’ principles mentioned below:

  • Simple – Simplicity has no alternative. Loud designs and chunky furniture are no good. Too much cramming of furniture is sure to play a spoilsport – better keep reception area clean with minimal designing.
  • Sophisticated – Designing should be such to represent a class of its own, going beyond the expected standards.
  • Stylish – All that are to be placed in the reception area should have a great style quotient. Better to opt for designer help desk, furniture, ceilings and lighting essentials.

Here’s a sneak-peak of some excellent ideas that can lend warmth and a lasting impression on the minds of the visitors coming down to your office throughout the day.

1. A Professional Desk to Start With

The help desk where receptionist is seated needs to be designed in an innovative way because it represents your company. The desk should be designed keeping in mind space aspect because it needs to accommodate important office utility items (phones, desktops, printers, etc) beside the receptionist. It is a must to keep the company logo against the backdrop of beautiful wall papers or tiles. 

2. Flooring to Impress

Wooden vitrified tiles are best option for reception area flooring, the first thing that catches human attention. Wooden colours lend a warm and inviting appeal for visitors treading on it.

3. Make a Statement with Ceilings

Statement ceilings are the order of the day as they look highly appealing. It conceals all kinds of wiring that creates a messy look however well-decorated the reception zone might be. Beautiful false ceilings fitted with contemporary lighting can work wonder for reception space. Better to consult with some of the best office interior designers in your area to get the best suitable interior decoration ideas for ceiling of the reception area.

4. Wall Colours Lend Warmth

Create an impact with usage of warm colours for the wall or choose some stunning warm shades for wallpapers or tiles. Pastel colours look good on walls. Brighter wooden, orange, purple shades might look impressive if it syncs with the colour of company logo. Complement wall colours with contrasting shades for window curtains. 

5. Give a Character with Furniture

It is always better to go with down-sized furniture because big ones mark the contemporary look. Keep in a couple of comfy sofa and place few chairs at strategic points. Sofa cushions in bright and beautiful patterns and textures add an impressive look.

6. The Walls Have Something to Say

Decorate walls with beautiful artistic works. You can opt for modern drawings – in case you are confused what would be the best way to showcase a wall. Probably hanging some antiques or keeping wall clocks representing different global times exude cosmopolitan vibe.

7. Put in Potted Plants

Green indoor plants are great ways to accentuate office decor in a healthy way. In above image the entire reception desk has been planted with hanging pots. There are quite many other green decor options – a popular plant usually kept at offices is the Money Plant symbolizing business productivity and prosperity. Plants immediately bring an air of freshness and add a warm and positive vibe to the whole office environment.

A lovely potted plant kept at the front desk looks eye-soothing. There’s another lovely way to add greenery – by opting for vertical garden.
