When you’re giving your office space a facelift, your conference room should be priority number one. It’s the hub of your office, where potential clients gain a first impression and where your employees become a team. With every conference room, the most important piece in the room is the conference table itself. Choosing the look and feel of your conference room will greatly depend on the type of conference table you buy for the space. Here are a few great tips for a conference table shopper!
What Is The Primary Function Of Your Conference Room Going To Be?
Before you buy a conference table, you have to determine what the specific setting or tone you want your conference room to present. Will it be used primarily for small client meetings and presentations? If so, you may want to go for a modular table so you can reconfigure your table based on the meeting’s demands. Or maybe you need a traditional long, oval table for weekly team meetings and seminars. Or maybe you just need a space for creative brainstorming, in which case a round table might be the way to go.
What Size Is Your Space?
Nothing would be more heartbreaking than purchasing the perfect conference table only to get it in the space and discover that it won’t fit. Make sure you measure to space before you start your search!
What Kind Of Ambiance Are You Going For?
There is truly an overwhelming amount of options to choose from when it comes to the material that is used for your table. Anything from glass to solid wood is, forgive the pun, on the table.
How Much Are You Willing To Spend?
Yes, your conference room is important, but not so important that you need to go bankrupt picking the perfect table. Make a budget and stick to it! No matter how much you want that $8,000 all-glass, super mod table. Also, make sure you shop around to different types of places like antique shops or estate sales. There are so many amazing deals that you can find at antique shops or estate sales that will make your conference room really stand out!
Re-doing your office is exciting, and choosing a conference table doesn’t have to be a hassle. Just make sure you’re prepared before you start your shopping. And don’t forget to take before and after pictures!
