Well, just because you want to create a first impression do not make the mistake of over-doing the space. Keep it simple and crisp yet elegant and grand. Make sure your reception area is rather inviting and not a quick put-off. Something simple and classy has never gone wrong.

Make It Attractive & Inquisitive


Let your reception space be a slight reflection of what goes around inside the office space or the hotel. It should be attractive enough to create the inquisitiveness of whats going on on the inside. Make sure that your accessories match with the overall look of the space. Your paintings, the telephone, the desktop for that matter should not create disharmony when added to the reception desk so when you begin select it all together and do not go the other way round.
