Reception Chairs – having somewhere for them to sit and wait for their meeting with you to start is incredibly important as it helps them to feel relaxed and welcome in your building. No one wants to be left standing around, feeling like they are getting in the way. You can find a Huge range of cheap reception chairs online that will work in whatever size reception space that you have available.

Refreshments – offering refreshments is a must and this does not need to impact on your reception staff. You can find some reasonably priced water coolers and automatic drinks machines that allow your visitors to get themselves a drink whilst they wait.

Signage – nothing is more frustrating than wandering around a building trying to find the reception area. Make sure that you clearly signpost this from the car park and throughout the building.
