Finding the right reception counter

Our designers and space planning experts will help you to find the perfect white reception counter with drawers for your space from options including curved, circular and corner reception desks to standing units.

Reception desk design

Fabulous front panel reception desk designs come in glass, white, black, padded fabrics, metal, wood and even LED lights. Or tell us your bespoke design, size and colour requirements and we’ll advise using CAD drawings, images and colour swatches.

What space requirement do I need behind a corporate reception counter?

The minimum space is 100cm but for practical reasons 120cm is preferred. A user in a wheelchair needs 150cm space to turn the chair.

What size office reception desk do you need to seat two people?

For a dental practice, you will need a counter with a length or width of 300cm. Each user needs a minimum of 120cm space when sitting. Of course you can choose from one of our bespoke reception desks.

What is included with a reception desk?

What is included with the desk?

The level of integrated features will depend on the style of office reception furniture you choose. Popular features include:

Cable Management

This is a standard feature on most modern reception desks so cables are safely hidden away. Options include cable trays, grommet holes in the top surface of the desk, cable hatches and desk to floor cable channels. Cable hatches are particularly useful for charging mobile phones or Ipads.


LED lighting is usually a standard feature and more decorative options are available including colour changes to match a brand or gradual colour changes.

Power & USB chargers

These are optional extras but necessary to allow quick access to plugs or charging points. Plug options include three-pin UK plug socket, USB charging socket, HDMI, VGA and Ethernet RJ45. Most of the power units are modular and can be made using one, two, three or four sockets per unit.


  • Most reception counters have a range of matching cabinets which can be integrated, lockable and feature sliding doors or pedestal drawers.
  • Lockable cabinets can range from 80cm high up to 200cm high with bespoke widths and heights to fit those tricky spaces.
  • Cabinets can also include pull out hanging files, metal shelves for very heavy items and coat hooks for staff and visitors.
  • If you are looking for a reception desk with a chair look no further than our desk chair range >
What are reception desks made from?

What is the furniture made from?

There are many different materials to choose from including:

1. Coloured Glass

The same as a toughened glass window but with a colour on one side to create a stylish and glossy sleek finish on your designer reception desk. Colours include red, blue, green, yellow, white and black glass. The main advantage of glass is it can be easily wiped down and will look great for years.

2. Laminate

Similar to a kitchen work surface, laminates are hard-wearing, easy to clean, scratch-resistant, heat resistant and stain-resistant which is perfect for a clinic or dental practice reception counters. Satin wipe-clean colours include white which is usually the most popular colour, grey, black and wood effect finishes like oak and walnut.

3. Metal

Used to create elegant curved reception desks and increase the colour range, metal desks can be finished in over 124 RAL colours making it easy to colour match with branding or detailing.

Metal is most suitable for making retro style desks like the Classic Desk with its curved corner and chrome strip detailing that gives it the American diner look and feel.


Will I need a bespoke size?

If you have a small waiting room or awkwardly shaped space or wish to ensure that a modern reception desk dimensions are kept to a minimum, then you will almost certainly need a bespoke reception desk.

  • Our modern furniture is available in a wide range of shapes and the reception desk size can easily and affordably be made to order in bespoke sizes for perfectly fitting furniture.

Can the surface be wiped down or disinfected?

In any public area, and especially if the unit is located in a doctor’s surgery or clinic waiting room, then it will need to be hygienically cleaned. All of our commercial-grade furniture is designed to withstand the rigours of public space.

  1. Most of the furniture is made from laminate,  the same material as a kitchen work surface, so are easily cleaned, as are glass surfaces.
  2. If the desk is regularly touched by visitors or is in a high traffic area avoid black reception desks and go for lighter colours like white and grey.

Do I need a countertop?

It’s not absolutely necessary for informal areas like agencies or if the receptionist is just giving directions in a high traffic area. A countertop is required for spaces like surgeries and doctor’s waiting rooms where confidential private or medical documents are used.

The height of  the reception desks can be made in a bespoke size on most of our ranges. Speak to one of our experts today 020 8840 6298.

How high should the unit be?

The standard height of a modern standing reception desk is around 110cm to 115cm, while the ideal top height for space where monitors and phones are used is normally around 75cm high. For a bespoke reception desk height call our experts on 020 8840 6298.

  • You may wish to consider adding various levels of height to the space, with higher areas to allow privacy and security, or lower levels to allow maximum accessibility and to more easily accommodate wheelchair users.
  • Consider a black standing reception desk if you require a higher version.

What extras can I add?

The cost of reception desks can change depending on the extras you choose. Office cabinets, integrated cabinets, power and USB sockets, LED lighting and desk chairs are just some of the options. We can help you decide what the best options for your space are. Call our experts on 020 8840 6298 for prices and planning advice.

Will I need storage cabinets?

That depends on who will be using the counter. A doctor's waiting room will need sliding or tambour door office cabinets for files and records.

  1. If you just need a space to store personal items like bags and keys then a pedestal drawer or cabinet would be more suitable.
  2. For coat and jacket storage you will need a high cabinet with a rail or hooks. Some of the curved desks come with integrated storage.

How long does it take to order?

Your new reception desk is carefully crafted to order and so we would normally advise approximately around four to six weeks lead time, depending on the style of desk and the type of counter ordered, especially where bespoke measurements are required.

  • If you have a particularly tight deadline to meet please call our furniture experts on 020 8840 6298 for immediate availability details. We’ll be happy to advise on all current options that can be fulfilled at higher speeds.

How does the furniture arrive at our office?

No more wasting time trying to track down delivery drivers or chasing up couriers. Our fully trained fitters will deliver, unpack and assemble your new furniture for you, leaving it in exactly the right place and ready to use immediately with no mess, fuss or heavy lifting for you.
