New reception areas are a pivotal part of our office refurbishment projects as they get the client journey off to the very best start. First impressions count and people will make judgements about your business based on your front of house. Reception areas are particularly important if your business resides behind a glass facade, as it will be on show night and day.
Your reputation and image should be well communicated in your reception area, with the quality and style of fixtures and fittings mimicking your brand identity and clientele. A bespoke, statement reception desk may be a fitting centrepiece for a corporate entity or business looking to attract upscale clients, while a comfortable place for people to wait might suit healthcare professions and High Street offices better. It is our job as a refurbishment specialist to analyze company objectives and create reception areas that delight and impress while delivering a high level of functionality and security. We start by providing 3D layout designs that help you visualize how your refurbished reception will look.
Receptions areas are evolving all the time and there is a blurring of the boundary in some industries between reception areas, meeting spaces and ‘break out’ zones. We can apply the ‘agile’ way of working to your reception area, creating different areas for different uses. This is especially useful if you have a large, underused reception that could double up as a workspace. It’s not unusual for MPL Interior to incorporate drinks stations and kitchenettes into reception areas, using discreet integrated appliances and office partitions to screen off areas.
We understand that a reception area for a corporate or commercial client will have different requirements to a High Street business and it’s MPL’s extensive experience of working with a variety of companies that allows us to define and shape our designs for different industries. As an office refurbishment company with experience in the commercial, retail, healthcare and High Street sectors, we know how to create reception areas that wows current clients while attracting new ones.
The art of creating a good reception area is in blending functional yet appealing bespoke office furniture, customer seating, up-to-date technology, storage and displays with your company branding. Our interior design process will ensure your new reception area is aesthetically impressive and complementary to your company branding.
Our portfolio of completed reception areas includes work in listed buildings, the installation of media walls and LCD screens and the creation of bespoke furniture items, such as reception counters, display units and storage systems.
