What types of office reception desks are there?
Corner - corner reception desks are designed to create a corner for privacy or to provide extra workspace. Ideal for two people to share, they come in an L-shape configuration and the return can be either on the left or right-hand side when sitting.
Straight - where lobby space is at a premium a straight unit can often be the most suitable solution. The straight version is the most efficient and economical way to seat 2, 3 or 4 receptionists with room underneath for dedicated storage and cable management.
Circular or Round - for clinic waiting room areas where the counter needs to be in the middle of the room or placed away from the walls, round or circular reception counters are a practical and stylish furniture solution. They also work well as feature furnishing in a large and open plan, design-led workspaces.
U-Shaped - the U-shaped large unit is a wraparound design with a workspace to the front, left and right-hand sides of the user, allowing for ample storage space within. Their size and executive presence makes them most suitable for traditional corporate-style lobby areas and large rooms.
Standing - these are most suitable for busy spaces like art galleries, museums, hotels, clinics and high-traffic areas with a constant flow of people, where the receptionist needs to be at the same height as the visitor. Consider a standing desk anywhere the user needs to frequently meet and greet.
