Reception Designs and Waiting Areas

First impressions count – and never more than in today’s businesses, schools and colleges, where expectations are often sky-high.

An effective reception area should be much more than a drab ante-room or a gateway to the offices, classrooms, labs or libraries beyond. Its front-of-house position makes it prime real estate and presents an unmissable opportunity to provide visitors and students alike with a snapshot of the quality and ethos of the establishment.

Make the right first impression 

Innova believes that every reception can be comfortable, professional and visually appealing – a brightly lit, welcoming space that’s practical enough to accommodate a range of uses. Naturally, it needs to function as an efficient admin hub, but you probably also want it to double as a showcase for achievements and activities.

Your requirements will inform our design. Using our expertise, we will ensure we create a reception area design perfectly suited to your needs. We’ll build a reception desk that accommodates people of all heights, sitting and standing, ensuring it is inclusive to all.  Our designers will consider your traffic flow and incorporate reception furniture that will comfortably seat staff and visitors alike.

Integrated cable management and security systems

Your reception staff are at the heart of your operation, so our design will work around them, ensuring cables are fully managed and integrated and government guidelines adhered to so they can work in comfort and safety. To protect the security of your staff and business, we ensure computer screens are discreetly concealed to safeguard sensitive information and can install a panic button so emergencies can be handled swiftly.

Ergonomic seating solutions

Innova also offer a range of stylish and comfortable seating solutions designed to coordinate perfectly with your reception space. From smart tub chairs to contemporary sofas and ergonomically designed desk chairs, we can deliver seating to enhance and complement your interior.

High quality, durable products

You can expect a highly professional finish that’s hard wearing, ergonomic and fully DDA-compliant. We can reflect your school or business colours, logos and themes, and include stylishly lit display cabinets and multi-media display units which put your school, college or company in the spotlight. Our fully managed turnkey service encompasses every element of design and installation to ensure timely and expert completion.
