How Do I Choose the Right Shape?

How Do I Choose the Right Shape?

Different shaped reception desks offer unique benefits tailored to various office layouts, functional requirements, and aesthetic preferences. Understanding these benefits can help you choose the best shape for your reception area:

  • Rectangular desks like our Era Long desk are the classic choice, offering a professional look. They're great for smaller spaces or when placed against a wall, as they are space-efficient. These desks are versatile, accommodating all the necessary reception equipment like computers and phones comfortably.
  • L-shaped desks like our Classic Retro provide an increased workspace, making them ideal for multitasking and organising materials. They fit perfectly in corners, efficiently utilising space, and allow receptionists to interact with visitors from two different directions, enhancing engagement.
  • U-shaped desks like our AtWork are perfect for maximising space, offering extensive workspace and storage. They're highly functional, and suited for busy reception areas where multiple tasks are handled at once. These desks can also accommodate more than one receptionist, facilitating teamwork.
  • Circular or semi-circular desks like our Vale Half Circle present a welcoming design. Their inviting shape allows receptionists to engage with visitors more openly and offers a modern, unique look that makes a strong visual statement. They are particularly beneficial in central reception areas where visitors can approach from various directions.
  • Wave or curved desks like our Vale Curved bring a contemporary and dynamic aesthetic to reception areas. The curved shape is seen as more inviting and less formal. They also allow for a balanced distribution of reception equipment and space for interacting with visitors.

What are Modular Reception Desks?

What are Modular Reception Desks?

Modular reception desks consist of multiple sections or modules that can be arranged and reconfigured in different ways. Here's an overview of what makes modular reception desks a popular choice:

  • Flexibility in Design: One of the key advantages of modular desks is their flexibility. They can be assembled in various configurations to fit different reception area layouts. This adaptability is particularly useful in dynamic office environments where space utilisation needs may change over time.
  • Scalability: As your business grows, your reception desk can grow with it. You can add more modules to extend the desk, accommodating more receptionists or additional workspace as needed. This scalability makes modular desks a cost-effective solution for expanding businesses.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Investing in a modular reception desk can be more cost-effective in the long run. Instead of purchasing a completely new desk when your needs change, you can simply add or remove modules to reshape or expand the desk. This adaptability can lead to significant cost savings over time.

Reception Desk FAQs

What other things should I consider when choosing a receptionist desk?

You should consider a wide variety of factors when choosing your new reception desk to make a lasting impression. It's important that your office furniture products are all fit for purpose and suit the reception area environment that they are in.

  1. You need to allow 100-120 cm space for each receptionist. The size of the desk is proportional to the size of your reception area. Try drawing a space plan to check this.
  2. Colour and style should closely match your current space. For example, if you are a dentist you should always choose a minimalist styled desk in white.
  3. Check your computer screen fit under the counter top. If not a recessed screen shelf can be added to work top
  4. What fitted or matching storage is required. This can include under desk pedestal storage, fitted storage and large cabinets to sit behind the desk.

Finding the correct sized and functional reception desk can be quite difficult and you will probably need professional advice on larger 2 or 3 person reception desk. Once you have decided on the size a 2D drawing and 3D visual can be produced.
