Small Reception Desk In Many Styles For Tight Spaces
The reception desk telegraphs the very first impression about your business. Even a small reception desk can effectively highlight your company's professionalism. A typical desk size for smaller offices is 72" by 36". Decor options include contemporary, traditional and transitional. Within each category you'll find a choice of construction materials, such as melamine and wood veneer, as well as diverse finishes to express your style priorities and blend with the rest of your office reception furniture.
When choosing a small reception desk, keep this checklist in mind:
- Productivity -- Necessarily located in a high traffic zone, the reception desk should have a raised transaction counter to provide the receptionist with a buffer, blocking out distractions and helping him or her focus on the tasks at hand. That buffer also affords privacy for your clients. Their personal papers will be out of sight, on the workspace below the counter. That work space should be of sufficient size to accommodate the tools of the receptionist's trade, such as a laptop, pencil box, stapler, phone, etc.
- Storage -- Low file cabinets typically flank the receptionist's seating area. They should include both shallow and deep drawers, to hold small items like pens, as well as folders containing various forms and client information.
- High-tech factors -- Look for portholes and built-in channels to organize and conceal computer cables, telephone lines and electric wires.
