In creating a reception desk, the first important thing is to conduct adequate research as far

width. The height enables the seat to rotate freely without interfering with the accessories on the
desk such as computers.

the number of users. More one user will require a longer desk. Adequate storage space is essential.

materials include increasing the beauty at the reception point. Following the fact that the reception
point is the primary point of an organization, it plays an essential role in attracting customers.

control of externalities, or otherwise the cost that the design may impact on the user. For instance

role in determining the sitting positions. In this regard, the height should be standard incase

large desks contain a number of storage options and accommodates a computer and some art
items. The conference area will be casual and less corporate with a large TV wall for
