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 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 at the desk.
  • Straight Desk - where reception or lobby space is at a premium a straight desk can often be the most suitable solution. The straight desk 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 Desk - for reception areas where the desk needs to be in the middle of the room or placed away from the walls, round or circular desks are a practical and stylish furniture solution. They also work well as feature furnishing in large and open plan, design-led work spaces.
  • U-Shaped Desk - the U shaped workstation is a wraparound design with workspace to the front, left and right hand sides of the desk 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 Desk - 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 reception staff need to frequently meet and greet.
What is included with a reception desk?

What is included with a reception desk?

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

  • Cable management - this is a standard feature on most reception desks so cables are safely hidden away.
  • Lighting - this is usually a standard feature and more decorative options are available
  • Power & USB chargers - these are optional extras but necessary to allow quick access to plugs or charging points.
  • Storage - most desks have a range of matching cabinets which can be integrated, lockable and feature sliding doors or under desk drawers.
What are reception desks made from?

What are reception desks made from?

There are many different materials to choose from including:

  • Coloured Glass - the same as a toughened glass window but with a colour on one side to create a stylish and glossy sleek finish.
  • Laminate: - similar to a kitchen work surface, laminates are hard wearing and easy to clean. Colours include white, grey, black and wood effect finishes like oak.
  • Metal - used to create elegant curves and increase the colour range, metal reception desks can be finished in over 124 RAL colours making it easy to colour match with branding. 

Will the reception desk need to accommodate disabled visitors?

Yes! Always do your best to accommodate wheelchair users and disabled visitors. A low table on or near the reception desk could be added if the desk height is not adjustable. 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 ideally be rounded and where possible have a contrasting edge colour to help visually impaired visitors.

Will I need a bespoke size?

If you have a small or awkwardly shaped reception area or wish to ensure that a walkway remains at a minimum width when the furniture is placed, then you will almost certainly need a bespoke size. Our reception desks are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes and can easily and affordably be made to order in bespoke sizes for perfectly fitting furniture.

How do I match a logo or brand colour?

Matching your reception furniture to your brand colours or a specific logo is an easy way to create a seamless first impression in corporate spaces and can help to make a space feel professionally designed and even larger when colours are in harmony. 

We don’t advise that you select colours on a computer screen which is why we provide material swatches for true colour matching.

Can the reception desk surface be wiped down or disinfected?

In any public area, and especially if the reception desk is located in a doctor’s surgery or clinic waiting room, desks will need to be hygienically cleaned. All of our commercial grade furniture is designed to withstand the rigors of public space. Most modern desks are made from laminate,  the same material as a kitchen work surface, so are easily cleaned, as are glass surfaces.

Do I need a countertop on a reception desk?

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

How high should a reception desk countertop be?

The standard height of a reception counter top is around 110cm to 115cm, while the ideal desktop height for a space where monitors and phones are used is normally around 75cm high. 

You may wish to consider adding various levels of height to the reception area, with higher areas to allow privacy and security, or lower levels to allow maximum accessibility and to more easily accommodate wheelchair users.

What extras can I add to my reception desk?

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

Will I need storage cabinets for my reception desk?

That depends on who will be using the desk. A doctor's waiting room will need sliding or tambour door office cabinets for files and records. If you just need a space to store personal items like bags and keys then an under-desk drawer  or cabinet would be 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 around four to six weeks depending on the type of reception desk. If you have a tight deadline please call our furniture experts on 020 8840 6298 for immediate availability details.

How does the desk arrive at our office?

Our fully trained fitters will deliver, unpack and assemble your new reception desk for you. 

This service is also available outside normal office working hours for minimal downtime.
