White Reception Desk

Our designers and space planning experts will help you to find the perfect white reception desk for your space from options including curved, circular and corner reception desks to reception counters and standing desks. Fabulous front panel designs come in glass, white, black, padded fabrics, metal, wood and even LED lights. Or tell us your bespoke size and colour requirements and we’ll advise using CAD drawings, images and colour swatches.

What space requirement do I need behind a reception desk? The minimum space is 100cm but for practical reasons 120cm is preferred. A receptionist in a wheelchair needs 150cm space to turn the chair.

What size reception desk do you need to seat two people? You will need a reception desk with a length or width of 300cm. Each receptionist needs a minimum of 120cm space when sitting at the desk.

What types of reception desks are there?

What types of reception desks are there?

  • Corner desk: Corner reception desks come in an L-shape configuration with the return on the left or right when sitting at the desk.
  • Straight desk: Where space is at a premium a straight desk is the most suitable.  This shaped desk is the most economical when seating 2, 3 or 4 receptionists.
  • Circular or round desk: For receptions where the desk needs to be in the middle of the room or away from a wall.
  • U-shaped desk: Reception desk with a front and left and right side. Usually only suitable for large corporate lobby areas.
  • Standing desk: Suitable for museum or gallery lobbies when the receptionist needs to be at the same height the visitor.
What is included with a reception desk?

What is included with a reception desk?

The level of features depends on which reception desk you choose:

  • Cable management: This is a standard feature on most reception desks so cables are safely hidden away.
  • Lighting: This is usually a standard feature but again it will depend on the type of desk.
  • Power & USB chargers: These are all optional extras but necessary if you need quick access to a plug or charging points.
  • Storage: Most desks have a range of matching cabinets which include sliding door, integrated, lockable & under desk drawers.
What are reception desks made from?

What are reception desks made from?

There are a few different materials to choose from. You can choose between:

  • Coloured Glass: Same as a toughened glass window but with a colour on one side to create a glossy sleek finish.
  • Laminate: Similar to a kitchen work surface and is hard wearing and easily wiped down. Colours include white, grey, black and wood finishes like oak.
  • Metal: Metal is used to create elegant curves and to increase the colour range. Metal reception desks can be finished in over 124 RAL colours which makes it easier to match a brand.

Will the reception desk need to accommodate disabled visitors?

Yes most companies with a reception area will need to accommodate wheelchair users and disabled visitors. A low table on or near the reception desk will need to be added. If attached to the desk the table top will need to protrude from the front and should be around 75cm high. Exposed table corners should be rounded and were possible have a contrasting edge colour for visually impaired visitors.

Will I need a bespoke size?

If you have a small or awkward shaped reception area or a walkway that must be a certain width you will almost certainly need a bespoke size.

How do I match a logo or brand colour?

You will need to see material swatches so you can compare and select the closest colour. Selecting colours on a computer screen is not advisable.

Will the reception desk surface be wiped down or disinfected?

Probably if the reception desk is located in a doctor's or clinic waiting room. Most modern desks are made from laminate which is the same material as a kitchen work surface so is easily cleaned.

Do I need a countertop on a reception desk?

Not for informal receptions like agencies or if the receptionist is just giving directions etc. A counter top is necessary for dentist and doctor waiting rooms where private or medical documents are used.

How high should a reception desk countertop be?

110cm to 115cm is the standard height of a reception counter top. The desktop for monitors and phones is approximately 75cm high.

What extras can I add to my reception desk?

Extras include matching office cabinets, integrated cabinets, power and USB sockets, LED lighting and desk chairs.

Will I need storage cabinets for my reception desk?

It depends on who will be using the reception desk. A doctor's waiting room will need sliding or tambor door office cabinets. If you just need somewhere to put a bag and keys an under desk drawer or cabinet is more suitable. For coat and jacket storage you will need a high cabinet with a rail or hooks.

How long does it take to order a reception desk?

Usually 4-6 weeks depending on the type of reception desk. If you have a deadline it is always worth asking our furniture experts 020 8840 6298.

How does the desk arrive at our office?

We have trained fitters who will deliver, unpack and assemble your reception desk. This is also possible outside office working hours.
