In the world of business first impressions are everything. The way you dress, the way you speak, the way you shake hands...whether you like it or not, you’re being judged by the person you’ve just met. If you want them to take you seriously, their first impression of you had better be a good one. The same principle applies to an office space. In fact, as a business owner, your office is an extension of you as a business person. The impression you make with your office space is critical to your business success.
The Receptionist Isn’t Alone
Lobby design is a critical element of the office space. It’s the company’s version of that first handshake. You may not realize it, but your lobby is about much more than just greeting clients. It provides a space for expanded branding options. The person entering your lobby should know what company they’re visiting. Make sure your lobby fits with your corporate branding guidelines and speaks to who your business is as an entity.
Make Your Lobby Work In Your Favor
The lobby is also the first space your employees see each morning when they come to work. A lobby that exudes a feeling of vibrant energy and success raises employee morale and sets the mood for a productive day. Put your lobby in charge of employee morale.
Finally, your lobby can put in some overtime - it’s not just an empty space with a receptionist’s desk anymore. Creating small meeting areas for quick conversations extends the use of your lobby area and makes it work as hard for your business as that receptionist does.
Modern Planters Answer All Your Design Needs
When designing a corporate lobby, there’s one design element that works everywhere. Modern planters filled with a variety of flowers or plants can really spruce a lobby up and make an impact on all who pass through. Today’s fiberglass planters are an especially good choice. Available in a wide array of sizes and colors, their durability makes them a perfect choice for corporate lobbies. They’re lightweight, as well. Move them around the lobby as needed and try on different looks.
