Just as a face represents a person, the reception area represents an office or a business. And just as we form an opinion by looking at the person (usually the face), most visitors similarly form an opinion about the business and how it is doing by looking at the reception area.
Standing desks are more than just a craze, and they’re spilling beyond the deep-pocketed offices of world-known companies like Google and Facebook.
People are becoming smarter, more aware, and more preventative when it comes to their health, which in itself is fantastic to see. Where they stumble, though, is the cost justification of a standing desk culture in the workplace.
Designing the layout of an office space is one of the most important steps towards your ideal office. The right office layout can ensure a positive impact on your company’s performance, culture, its productivity, and ultimately its profitability.

Have you been toying with the idea of reconfiguring your current office space? This is a question many have been contemplating as of late. Here are a few reasons why now might be the perfect time to move forward with an office configuration at your company.
