Buying factors to consider

How will you use your reception desk?

This might sound like a silly question to ask, but you’ll be surprised by the different ways that companies can make use of a reception counter. Matching the features with the intended use can only be done when you can begin to answer some fundamental questions. Where will the desk be placed and what functions does it need to carry out?
Perhaps you can get the insight of your receptionist to find out what key features are required to get the right desk. They understand the daily tasks that need to be completed, which means they are best positioned to answer the vital questions.


The visual aesthetics of your reception desk are important – especially as it’s one of the first points of contact with new customers and visitors. The receptionist desk should say something about your brand. For instance, choose a sleek modern style if you are a forward thinking company that is a pioneer.
We are told not to judge a book by its cover, but it’s easier said than done. Therefore, you need to carefully consider your reception desks style so customers get the right first impression about your brand. Fortunately, we have a huge range of all shapes and styles so you can make the right choice.

Build quality

Reception counters need to be durable since they probably will see a lot of use daily. Customers may constantly be leaning against the desk, which can lead to wear and tear. Therefore, it must have an excellent build quality that is durable, and that can take a lot of bumps and knocks, and still look fresh. Such desks should be manufactured from heavy duty materials that shouldn’t scratch easily.

When the desk arrives give it a thorough inspection to ensure that durability will not be a problem. We source some of the most durable reception desks on the market with solid warranties. You can buy with confidence, knowing that you will be purchasing a top quality piece of furniture.


Do you have more than one receptionist working at your work place? Then you should invest in a larger desk that has the room for two or more receptionists. It’s helpful for scenarios where customers need to get processed before moving forward, and require some level of privacy. For example, at a busy hotel the speed of check in can be improved when more than one receptionist is working at any one time.

However, don’t make your receptionist desk too big if you have a small space to work with. This will give a cramped and too busy. It’s not the best first impression that you want to create.


Most reception desks are more expensive than regular furniture where office employees work. That’s because they are significantly bigger, and more complex to manufacture, which means you have to pay for that extra material and workmanship. However, we provide exceptional value for money with the reception counters in our range, which means you don’t have to go elsewhere for a better deal. We have the best deals in Melbourne right here.
Do you need to buy more than one reception desk? Then make sure to spread the funds across all desks equally to make sure your company sets a consistent message. You can get a bulk rate for larger orders, so give us a call for more information.


Q. Do you have special deals on reception desks?

A. Yes! We offer bulk rate for large orders, which means you can make huge savings if you are buying desks for several locations, or doing a complete office fitout. Also, some offers include other reception area furniture, including tables and reception seating. Buying each of these furniture pieces separately would be more expensive, so you certainly can save some money.

Q. How can I save space when buying reception desks?

A. Consider investing in our monitors arms, which allow you to remove the monitors from the desk space. This gives the receptionist extra room to work with, and you can then buy a smaller desk if space is an issue. The combination of space saving and ergonomic comfort that monitor arms provide can lead to higher productivity.
