What does your current reception desk say about your place of business? You only have one shot to make a good first impression, so why not have that initial conversation be around a beautiful reception desk! If your reception desk doesn’t create a professional look and feel for your customers, it’s time for your business to upgrade.
When walking into an establishment, the reception desk is typically the first thing clients will see. In order to leave that lasting impression on customers, a reception desk should not only be attractive, but it should also be functional as a workspace that can provide organization for your staff!
Unlike most furniture stores, all of our desks are made to order and built specifically for your space. We use authentic reclaimed barn wood that will last a lifetime. There are many different options to consider when designing your reception desk, so let’s begin!
Height & Size
Higher vs. Lower Reception Desks can be a hard decision to make, but these heights are used for multiple purposes. A higher reception desk is best for restaurants who have staff members who are on their feet and on the move. A lower reception desk might offer less privacy but provides a more welcoming feel when working one on one with a customer.
The sizing of our custom built reception desks depends on how much office space you have. The most common desk dimensions are around 7’L x 24″W x 36/44″H, but we can build your desk custom to any specific size you need.
You also will want to consider the amount of storage required for your reception desk. With our made to order desks, we offer as much built-in storage as you need! The layout is designed to be as efficient as possible for both standing and sitting desks. We offer lockable cash drawers, filing cabinet drawers with hangers for folders, and even menu holders for restaurants. Working with computers and need cable access ports to keep a neat and tidy surface? No problem!
Apart from various heights, our custom built reception desks are available in many different shapes, such as rectangle shapes, L shapes, or straight/curved. For more flexibility, choose a stand-alone option away from walls to give easy come and go access to your staff members who might more frequently move around or need to walk customers to another area.
At Urban Industrial Design, we have designed and built desks for a number of businesses including Skin MD in Boston, Hinge in NYC, Cresthill Suites, as well as many other restaurants, bars, hair salons, and even Doggy Day Cares! Whether you’re looking for a modern, traditional, or minimalist look, we have plenty of customizable options for you to choose from to truly make your piece match the rest of your office design!
