5 More Superb Lobby Design Tips

Lobby upgrades are at the forefront of what we do here at Niche Projects.

The importance of your lobby or reception area simply cannot be understated. Therefore, we’ve come up with 5 more superb lobby design and upgrade tips for you.

Here they are.

Comfortable Furniture

When it comes to furnishing your lobby or reception space, there will be many options to choose from.

The essential elements when searching for lobby furnishings should be comfort, functionality and visual appeal.

Don’t be hasty when selecting the furniture for your lobby – customers will remember uncomfortable or ugly furnishings. That can affect how they consider their experience at your company. In the interest of sustainability, recycled furniture is even better.

Arrangement is just as important as the furniture itself when it comes to lobby design.

Chairs, sofas and tables should be arranged in a way that is welcoming, inviting people in to a relaxed and comfortable space.

Try to avoid arranging chairs in straight lines or rows. Create a few different spaces and arrange the seating in a relaxed fashion, around coffee tables or by windows.


Your lobby should be an engaging space for everyone passing through or waiting.

A boring lobby can give the impression of a boring organisation, something you want to avoid at all costs. If people are going to be spending time in your lobby, make sure they are entertained!

TV screens which tell people a bit about your company and its achievements can be appealing, so long as they’re not overdone.

Provide reading material, and have pleasant background music playing.

Bookshelves can be an excellent addition if clients are expecting to spend time waiting. You could even create a book exchange, for staff and customers alike.


If your customers and clients choose not to engage with the entertainment you have on offer, make sure there is something appealing to look at.

Pleasant paintings, photos or sculptures can fill this void effectively. Especially vibrant, colourful images and pieces.

Awesome artwork adds to the visually pleasing aesthetic of your lobby, and when combined with greenery and other elements of décor, creates an engaging space.

Storage Space

As well as being easy on the eyes, your lobby needs to be functional.

Storage should be an integral part of your office upgrade ideas. This means plenty of extra space should be available for items such as mail, extra furniture and cleaning equipment.

Without essential storage space, your lobby may end up looking messy and unprofessional.

Clear Signage

You don’t want to create a confusing area for your visitors.

Signs for toilets, the entrance to your office or elevators and stairs must be clear and well placed.

An easy to navigate entrance area gives the impression that your business is well organised and efficient, leaving customers and clients satisfied with their experience.
