The reception area of your front office determines the first impression that makes clients, vendors and visitors on your business. Therefore, you must be careful when decorating it. Carefully craft this area to be functional, professional and stylish. Light neutrals and earth tones blend well with a wide variety of furnishing options. These color themes are good choices for carpeting, wall coverings and window treatments. Make the reception desk the centerpiece of the lobby. Its style, shape and size will determine many of your other decor choices. Use adequate number of chairs you will need to seat your clients and visitors.
