The most important concern is that your desk fits your business image.
With so many style choices available, you want to make certain that you
have the best style that suits your business. For example, if you are in a
legal or other traditional profession choosing a traditional style desk over a
modern or contemporary style piece would better represent your image. As
in practically every product out there, reception desks also are available in
many different styles, sizes and prices. It also has to match the rest of the
office. So it is better if you need more than one piece, you can buy
everything together at the same time and place. This will also guarantee
that you get a better price.
Some very important things to consider when choosing a desk for your
business - What image do you want it to convey; where in the lobby or
business setting will it be placed; and what type of work is to be performed
at the desk. Do you require multi-levels of working space for employees to
assist your customers/clients from both sitting and standing position?
Keep in mind if your clientele might require a special height counter, DAW
can make your reception desk conform to ADA requirements. This provides
the proper height requirement standardized for people using wheelchairs
to have access to counters in business settings. DAW can make most
styles conform to ADA regulations.

important to choose the right style and size desk for your office.
This is representing you and your business.
In most cases, people form their first impression about something
within the first few seconds they see it. We might not appreciate
being “judged” in only a brief moment, but it happens, whether it
shines upon us positively or negatively. And the worst part of it is,
most people stick to their first opinion. The first thing a visitor will
see when he/she comes to your company is your reception area,
and in the middle of it, your reception desk. In that brief moment, it
could mean wether they will stay and conduct business or not.
1. How much space do you have? Don’t only estimate how much
space the will take. Visitors and employee(s) must have ample space
to move around it. Ample space includes persons using a wheelchair,
should be able to use the desk from both sides.
2. Please keep in mind the size of the office door, it is very important as
well as, the route the desk is going to be brought through within the
larger than your office door, so we suggest using this information
when planning on what style and what size desk to purchase. If you are
restricted by space, and want a larger desk, we can ship your desk in
sections to accommodate smaller doorways and such; however this
will require some assembly.
3. How many people are going to be primarily working behind the desk
and how many functions is this person going to be performing; a multi-
person unit is naturally larger or a multi-function area might be the
perfect fit, just make certain your space can accommodate this.
4. Does your space require a certain shape; curved, “J", "L” or “U”
shaped, straight or a freely structured desk that fits into any space, or
would a corner unit fit your need.
A reception desk has s much more to offer than the typical office desk. An
office desk provides a working area for a single person or within a team
setting. Generally, the reception desk is there to provide several privacy
on behalf of the general public from viewing any documentation,
confidential project in process, or cash she/he might be responsible for,
as well as providing privacy while answering business calls. If you are
handling personal documents at the reception desk, there should be a
safe area at the desk to protect those documents from public view.
With the privacy and security from the reception desk, you can also
delegate more functions towards this employee; answering partners
visiting the company or directing job applicants, sorting incoming mail
and packages, and so on.
