Choosing new administration furniture for a school district can be a daunting task, especially while juggling the hectic preparation of back to school season. Regardless of whether your organization is a private school, charter school, or even the school district’s administration building, having the right front office furniture goes a long way. Reception Desks illustrate professionalism, organization, and provides a welcoming ambiance for prospective students & parents, visitors, and guests. Here are three things to help guide you in choosing a reception desk that makes a great first impression:
Professionalism & Elegance are Paramount
Reception desks are often the first thing people see when they enter a school which sets the building’s look and feel. A clean finish without signs of damage or wear makes a solid first impression so it’s important to find a reception desk that can stand the test of time while maintaining a professional appearance. The Marque Reception Station by OFM is one option that can accommodate countless front desk environments.
Front Line Information Assurance
Receptionists work with sensitive school & personal information on a daily basis so they need a desk that makes it easily accessible for them and employees, yet out of sight from prying eyes. One way to deter suspicious activity is to provide a secure panel that obscures plain visibility while elevating access away from the desk such as a glazed counter panel for visitors. Also, an integrated lockable filing cabinet ensures secure storage of sensitive material & information while allowing access only to appropriate personnel. The PLB9 L-Shaped Reception Desk Suite by NDI Office Furniture provides both security and a professional appearance for your school’s front office.
Most parents don’t go beyond the school’s front office administration area which means the receptionist’s desk is the best place to post important information such as lunch and attendance policies, upcoming events, and general information about the school. However, it also needs to have plenty of surface area to accommodate important action items such as visitor log sign-in sheet as well as school paper & documents to review and sign. The Reception Desk Suite by NDI Office Furniture offers ample space for visitors, parents, and guests to conduct their business with front office staff in a busy administration office.
Reception desks should have the right mix of professional appearance, organization, security, and long-term durability.
