1 Reception Area

Reception the first impression visitors get of your company

Ask yourself whether it really reflects who you are and if it embodies your brand values?

An impressive well designed reception desk, lighting, graphics and soft furnishings all create a welcoming and memorable statement of your company

2 Clutter and Storage

We’ve all been in offices which are full of clutter, files on the floor, archive boxes stacked high exposed cables. Do you want visitors thinking that clutter in your workplace means clutter in your work?

Investing in attractive, functional storage and cable management will it present a more professional image, it will encourage your workforce to be more organised

3 Informal and traditional Meeting Rooms & are yours fit for purpose?

Office design and function is constantly evolving, the need for informal meeting areas as well as standard partitioned meeting space is crucial. More formal meeting rooms need to be comfortable, have flexible lighting to accommodate presentations and film. Seamless full height glazed partitions for natural light if positioned away from external windows. Credenzas for the essentials, tea, coffee and of course the latest tech for presentations

Ensuring you have a combination of informal and traditional meeting areas. Informal meeting spaces can be formed with screens, high backed seating and dropped pendant lighting.  Full height seamless glass partitions are attractive, functional and have a distinct modern design and feel. They send a message that your company is focused on the future. Even though these messages are communicated on a subconscious level, clear and open to see whom you are meeting, no intimidating closed doors

4 Presentation / Tech have you the right tools and presentation facilities you need to ensure productive meetings?

Conferencing and presentation tools, appropriate and functional technology is expected in today’s workplace. Anything less and you’re making a statement of the wrong kind. Investing in state of the art hardware to sell your product or services is crucial in today’s fast moving marketplace, don’t get left on the starting block

5 Fancy a cuppa

It sounds simple but one of the most requested improvements requested by office workers are better facilities Ask yourself whether yours are adequate.  If your current layout gives too much space to an out-dated kitchen no one uses or you have an old kettle that takes an age to boil

Install and well planned modern kitchen facility with instant hot and chilled water on tap, ensure your breakout area is well lit, ventilated with a combination of tables, chairs and lower level comfortable seating

We at Select Interiors judge the success of the buildings and places we design by the way people use and enjoy them – the clients who commission them, the people who inhabit them. Good design is about helping clients meet their needs and objectives. It is also about the way people feel when they experience it, a sense of meaning, connection and belonging
