 Interior Paint and Design Ideas for Your Reception Area

With all of the fac­tors at play in the design and func­tion of your com­mer­cial office build­ing, not to men­tion the dai­ly oper­a­tions, it can become easy to let the loud­est voic­es get your atten­tion first. This isn’t always neg­a­tive, but occa­sion­al­ly it leaves those things that are more sub­tle, yet still very impor­tant, slight­ly ignored.

A good exam­ple of this can be the paint­ing and design of your recep­tion area, or lob­by. After all, it’s just a col­lec­tion of chairs and a cof­fee table, right?

In real­i­ty, this par­tic­u­lar space where your clients, guests, and prospec­tive cus­tomers wait is a huge point of oppor­tu­ni­ty. With care­ful plan­ning and a lit­tle strat­e­gy, you can make sure that this first impres­sion you’re offer­ing is the very best it can be.

A Hand­ful of Moments to Wel­come and Impress

Here are a few tips and ideas to consider:

  • Make your recep­tion area func­tion­al — Few things are more frus­trat­ing than a chaot­ic wait­ing expe­ri­ence, whether it’s in an air­port ter­mi­nal, a line at the gro­cery store, or a lob­by. Make sure there is plen­ty of seat­ing avail­able, and that it’s the right kind of seat­ing for your busi­ness’ cli­mate. If you offer a very infor­mal, laid-back envi­ron­ment, couch­es can work. If yours is a pro­fes­sion­al office, stay with indi­vid­ual chairs.
  • Pur­pose­ful dis­trac­tions — While mag­a­zines still have a place, make sure that they are neat, orga­nized, and specif­i­cal­ly cho­sen. Giv­en the tech­no­log­i­cal age we live in, replac­ing read­ing mate­r­i­al with charg­ing cen­ters and work areas can be a classy option too.

  • Brand your busi­ness — When peo­ple walk into your recep­tion space, they should know that it’s yours. Can you dis­play your logo or slo­gan? If applic­a­ble, why not offer a dis­play cen­ter where sam­ples of your prod­ucts are avail­able to view?

  • Pro­fes­sion­al inte­ri­or paint and design — Inte­ri­or paint in a com­mer­cial envi­ron­ment holds incred­i­ble oppor­tu­ni­ty to be either a real asset, or detri­men­tal. Col­or psy­chol­o­gy tells us that dif­fer­ent col­ors inter­act with your brain in unique ways, caus­ing every­thing from stress and anx­i­ety to pro­duc­tiv­i­ty and calm. Choose col­ors that work for your pur­pos­es! With a pro­fes­sion­al appli­ca­tion, they can cre­ate a beau­ti­ful envi­ron­ment of obvi­ous professionalism.
