Upgrade Your First Impression Organizational Image

Your organization is often perceived by your lounge and waiting areas.  How you outfit these areas project an image about how you care about your clients, customers, patients, guests, and potential employees.

These spaces, furnished just a few years ago, don’t meet the needs of current visitors.

Today, with virtually all guests using Electronic Devices, a well designed waiting lounge area accommodates those guest’s needs.

Keys to Modernizing Your Waiting Areas

Key items to consider adding to these areas include easily accessed power outlets (both three prong and USB), wireless recharger pads and convenient tablet arms.

Have you noticed that old fashioned airports have travelers clustered around a column or sit on the floor, bunched by a wall with an outlet sitting on the floor?

That is because people are desperately trying to charge their mobile phone, tablets, or laptops.

Lounge Chairs with Power Outlets

And waiting areas today, people will be searching for outlets, pulling chairs away from the wall, trying to get to the outlets as they want to use their waiting time with Electronic Devices that need charging.  You can both keep your waiting area organized and provide client convenience with outlets built into the waiting area chairs.  Modern manufacturers of commercial quality lounge chairs now provide power outlets as an option.  Sometimes these units are simply a attached to the chair frame and sometimes the outlets are imbedded into the upholstered arms or side panels.  These chairs and sofas include built-in extension cords.  These configured chairs with built-in power are super convenient and appreciated by guests.

Of similar value, chairs with built-in tablet arms are equally valued.  When people use tablets, laptops, or larger display smart phones, it is easier for them when there is a convenient tablet arm ready to support the device.

While drop-down tablet arms are available, we recommend fixed tables (perhaps with an ability to rotate slightly in or out depending upon whether or not the user wants to start the support over their legs or to the side).

And when lounge areas are used for collaborative work spaces, access to power and small tablet holders make these meetings more productive.

Here are more examples of modern lounge and guest chairs with power and tablet options.  A wide range of products and styles to fit any décor and budget are available.
