What to Consider When Selecting a Boardroom or Conference Room Table
How many people does a boardroom table sit? This is probably the most common question that we get, but the board room or conference room in your office requires special consideration, especially when it comes to the choice of furniture. Looking for ideas to select the right meeting room or conference table? The following tips will be helpful – take a look:
The Size of Room
Before you go for any style or shape of conference room tables, see if the size is proportionate for the room and will there be comfortable seating and walking space without cluttering the entire area. We recommend about 3 feet for minimum comfortable walking space (from the backs of chairs to walls etc).
Max. Number of People to be Seated
Select a conference room table that complies with the size of your organization. Choosing a table too large is only going to use up space while a table too small with limited seating will create a bad impression. As a general rule of thumb, a six feet table seats 6 people, 8 feet table seats 8, and so forth.
The Purpose of the Room
Another important aspect to be considered when selecting conference tables is the primary use of your meeting room. Is your conference room used for discussions and audio visual presentations only or are ceremonial events also conducted inside? Choose a comfortable, convenient and functional conference table that fits your requirements and looks great at the same time!
Choice of Material
What finish or material are you looking for in your conference room table – laminate or veneer? Laminate is a stylish and economical choice while wooden veneer gives a classy and innovative touch to the ambiance. Go for a design that looks professional as well as matches the décor of your room perfectly.
Choice of Color
Do you want to look at conference tables that go with the existing furniture or color scheme of the walls etc in your room? Harmonizing your office furniture with the surroundings brings a sophisticated and professional appeal to the décor of your conference room.
Quality office furniture selection not only adds to the convenience of your employees but also speaks a lot about you as a brand. If your conference room is regularly used for international meetings or you meet senior professionals and important clients there, choose a table that actually looks the part! Sometimes, companies also choose specific designs for their entire office’s furniture to maintain consistency in branding. Personal preferences also matter – rectangular conference room tables with protruding corners may not appeal to some and they may opt for oval designs and vice versa.
At the end of the day, it’s all about your choice of design and vision and how you choose to make your conference room stand out with quality office furniture! Contact us today, we offer a wide range of boardroom and conference tables including custom designs tailored to your exact needs and taste.
