Your waiting area is the gateway to your office and to your business. You want it to reflect who you are as a company while providing for your customers’ comfort. Using modular furnishings in your waiting room allows you the versatility to arrange your reception area in accommodation of your aesthetic, your available floor space, and your customers’ comfort and privacy. Modular waiting areas have a lot to offer, and there are a variety of arrangements you can employ to revitalize your space.
Against the Wall
Straight or L-shaped furniture configurations are commonly placed against a wall or in a corner of your reception area, and they can help maximize floor space. Such reception area seating arrangements are widely favored, and they can be especially useful if your reception area has little space to spare. By arranging your modular-furniture pieces together against the wall, you save space without sacrificing style or your clients’ comfort.
Dual-sided furniture configurations are usually best suited to large waiting areas and often run down the middle of the reception space. While such placement can take up a good deal of floor space, these dual-sided arrangements allow your clients to sit on both sides and allow you to comfortably accommodate twice as many guests. Typically, dual-sided arrangements are implemented when the waiting area already has seating-areas arranged around the walls and is especially beneficial for reception rooms that see heavy traffic. When you use seating in the middle of your space, it’s important to allow at least three feet of open walkway between the grouped seating-areas.
Staggered Dual-Sided Configurations
The staggered dual-sided modular arrangement combines the dual-sided approach with a zigzag pattern, which can add style and a touch of privacy (when high-backed chairs are implemented). Privacy is often at a premium in office waiting rooms, and this staggered style allows you to offer this small luxury to your clientele. Because this arrangement provides added separation of seating, it can also allow your clients to be comfortable in the knowledge that the charging dock they are using belongs to their specific seat.
