Receptionists require desks that offer comfort and functionality. Common office reception desk designs that work well in an office setting include a basic straight desk, L-shape desk, U-shape desk and modular units. Selecting the ideal reception desk depends on the layout and space requirements of the reception area.
A basic wooden desk with a straight design that features a counter and set of drawers on one side is a good choice for small reception areas. An L-shape desk gives the receptionist more work room and typically features a two-sided counter and additional storage space. The U-shape desk has a curved design with a spacious counter and decorative accents. Modular reception stations offer flexibility of design and can incorporate any shape of desk.
