Reception furniture can create a great impression of your business

As a business, creating a good first impression with clients is absolutely crucial to obtaining new work, and a task that is difficult to get right – especially when it comes to enhancing the visitor’s experience. And that’s why our Wakefield-based team here at the Yorkshire Office Group know full well how important it is to utilise the use of quality office furniture in reception areas.

Undoubtedly, the digital world that we now live in has given businesses all over the world, including those in Leeds, Wakefield and Huddersfield, an opportunity to make a first impression without actually meeting the potential client. But it’s important that we don’t overlook how important the design, office furniture and layout of a business premises is in making that first impression really count.

For most businesses, the first impression they will get of your company is from the reception area, so it is crucial that this space gives a positive impression, as well as communicating your brand values.

Here at the Yorkshire Office Group, we have an extensive range of reception furniture, which is ideal to help businesses with layout design, storage and space. For example, our Wakefield-based team would recommend that any business looking for reception furniture consider using low shelving under reception desks, to keep the room organised, calm and welcoming.

Walls should ideally be kept neutral and light, allowing personality to come into the space through office furniture, art work and décor – a good idea for this is to keep the colour scheme the same or similar to that of your business brand – a perfect way to set the tone of the reception area, and allow customers to see your consistency.

What’s more, Yorkshire businesses should also take into account that reception areas aren’t now just used as waiting areas – with a lot of creative businesses in particular using them as interactive, informal working areas, so it is important to bare that in mind when choosing the right office furniture for the space.

Here at Yorkshire Office Group, our range of reception furniture varies from reception desks and counters to reception chairs, sofas and contemporary modular seating. We also provide customers with our bespoke furniture service, which allows businesses to create personalised office furniture to really make their office workplace a stand out and individual place.

If you are based in Wakefield, Leeds, Huddersfield or the surrounding Yorkshire areas, and you are looking for reception furniture, or any other office furniture to deck out your workspace, please do not hesitate to contact our team on 01924 88 88 00.
