3 Accessories Every Waiting Room Needs

Do you often have clients coming to your office? Chances are, they’ll probably be waiting a few minutes for you. By investing in a range of office accessories, you can keep them comfortable.

A pin board, for example, is a great way to showcase some past projects you’ve worked on. This can be a standout feature of your waiting room – subtly promoting your capabilities and instilling confidence with new clients.

To create a warm and friendly ambience in your waiting room, consider adding items that’ll give it personality.

Add Extra Lighting.

Bring a homely feeling to your boardroom by placing a beautiful lamp on the long table or in the corner at the coffee stand. It’s also a great way to control the amount of light, too. If you’re going to be showing a video, you can turn the main light off and just keep the lamp.

Choose A Colourful Rug.

Walk into any living room with a feature rug and it’s the first thing you’ll see. And if the room has a subtle colour scheme, a rug can add life to it, without overdoing it. Replace the rug every year or so, if you want to give the meeting room a fresh look. Adding a rug is a simple yet effective design method.

Be Tasteful With Trinkets.

Have you ever wandered into an antique store and found a unique, must-have item? What about that trip you went on and packed your suitcase full of trinkets? Consider adding one or two of these to your meeting room. You’ll probably get a few comments from your clients, asking where you got them from. It’s a great conversation starter.

It’s not just workstations that are moving towards a more causal style. Don’t be afraid to follow this trend into your waiting and meeting rooms. Experiment with the décor. It’s a space that many businesses forget to consider in the design process. But remember, receptions and waiting rooms are a great opportunity to give a positive first impression.

Focus on comfort and convenience, as well as keeping them entertained. This could be as simple as adding a storage stand with magazines in it.

Don’t Forget Your Employees.

Maybe you simply want to jazz up your space with a few features – like office trolleys, white boards, pin boards, office partitions, and screens. Want to add visual aids in your conference room or cable management systems to hang out areas? You can, with our range of office and desk accessories.
