How to Design A Conference Room That Works!

First Impressions Matter:

First Impressions Matter The first impression. The deal closer. The place where magic happens. An organization’s conference room is not only where meetings take place, but a room where the future is planned and decisions are made. A well designed conference room for your office can not only give your business the professional image it wants, but it can also be the key to success in all your ventures.

Your Space:

Understand Your Space The first step in creating a functional and effective conference room is understanding the limitations of your space versus your needs. Ask yourself these 2 questions: How often will the conference room be used? How many people attend your meetings?

Minimize Distractions:

Think of your conference room as a sanctuary where ideas and creativity can flourish unhampered by distractions such as complicated artwork or décor. Keeping these things to a minimum and sticking to just the necessities of the room will increase the likelihood of a productive and focused meeting. Minimize Distractions The Vision

The Chairs:

The Chairs Comfort & Design Comfort should be the number one priority when selecting furniture for a conference room, and it starts with the chairs you purchase. A high quality chair is not only impressive, but it makes sure that everyone in the conference room is focused on the meeting and not how they feel. Nothing’s worse during a long meeting than sitting in a chair with poor back support or wobbly wheels.

The Centerpiece:

The Centerpiece The Conference Table The centerpiece of every conference room is the conference table. Select a table that best represents your organizations personality and needs. Round or oval tables are good for building interpersonal relationships and maintaining eye contact with everyone in the room. Square or rectangular tables are appropriate for organizations that need a sense of structure and tiered seating.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Integrating Technology Planning for the Future Integrating technology such as projectors, monitors, video conferencing and audio recording equipment assures that your business will be equipped for any situation. A professional space planning team will be able to organically integrate your equipment in your room without it being a distraction or hindrance during meetings.

Set The Mood:

Set The Mood Lighting Most design experts agree that lighting plays a major role in employee productivity and the mood of the room. Incorporate natural and calming overhead lights. Avoid fluorescent lights, as it often causes headaches and can create an agitating environment.

Creating A Think-Tank:

Creating A Think-Tank Brainstorm Like a Pro Creating a collaborative environment is the key to having a successful meeting. Invest in equipment like whiteboards and blackboards that can help your employees quickly discuss and brainstorm projects within a single meeting . If you often hold long meetings, adding easy to access food/beverages, notepads, pens and other supplies are also conducive to the environment.
