This month seems the perfect opportunity to share our checklist below, which helps us to ensure that our clients love their new reception desks:-
- How many receptionists will work at the desk?
- Do you need provision at the desk for computer monitors, printers or security equipment?
- Should monitors be visible to your visitors or concealed behind a privacy top box?
- Will the desk need to be accessible to wheelchair users?
- Are visitors required to sign in? Do you prefer a high-level counter for them to lean on or a standard desk-high surface, perhaps with a raised glass signing shelf?
- Will the receptionist need storage? What would work best: pedestals, shelving or cupboards?
- Are there any structural considerations, such as walls or columns?
- How will the receptionist access the desk?
- Will the reception desk be purely functional or does it need to be bold and make a statement?
- Should it be curved, straight or a combination of both?
- How should the desk be finished? Wood effect or block colour or a combination of both?
3. Helpful information
- A simple drawing or sketch of the proposed reception area with measurements and any structural elements or power supplies clearly marked
A clear understanding of our client’s needs and specification is paramount to manufacturing a reception desk from our ranges of standard or bespoke modular units that not only fulfils their requirements, but does so in the most cost effective way.
