How Do I Make My Conference Room Look Professional?
Your conference room is the setting for many crucial meetings within your company, and you want this room to convey a sense of professionalism and give an idea of your company’s overall style. Modern conference room design is clean and uncluttered, with a few touches that give your brand some personality. And with ever-changing technology, your conference room should keep up with the needs of modern tech, providing accessibility and connectivity. To ensure your conference room is polished and professional, here are our meeting room organization ideas.
Make Sure You Have Enough Space for Everyone
One of the essential considerations for your conference room is having enough space for everyone. Consider how many people will likely use the conference room. Account for the total number of employees in your business, as well as the sizes of different management teams or other groups that hold frequent meetings. If you regularly meet with clients, vendors or business partners, think about what those meetings look like and how many people they need to accommodate.
Beyond the number of people you need to accommodate at the conference table, you’ll also need to account for your conference room size, which may have a different capacity. Think about the conference table style you’d like to have, and envision how it would fit in the available space.
A professional-looking conference room will have a table with seating that’s appropriate for the space, and the number of people present at the meeting. An overly cramped or cluttered space does not look professional. And at the opposite end of the spectrum, an overly large space with many empty seats also seems amateurish. Find the right balance of space and choose a conference table that fits the room and meets your team’s needs.
Organize and Hide Wires
Wires are an almost unavoidable part of modern technology, especially when multiple devices need to stay charged and connected. In the conference room, having everyone’s devices plugged in can be a pain and create an unsightly tangle of wires running in all directions across the room.
Professional conference rooms have methods for dealing with all these extra wires, organizing and hiding them from view. Using the conference table to conceal and arrange extra wires and outlets is one of the easiest ways to accomplish this. Professionally crafted conference tables can expertly tuck wires in their bases and have outlets on the sides, undersides or in hidden hatches or popups on the tabletop. All these options offer discreet connectivity while maintaining your conference room’s professional look.
When you’re planning your conference room, consider the types of connectivity you may need. Possibilities include electrical power, USB, ethernet, landline telephone and HDMI. Think about what’s most useful during the types of meetings you would usually hold in your conference room. You can integrate all these connections into a conference table design, minimizing excess wires running across the room — which are a tripping hazard and can make a room look messy and unprofessional. An integrated system that includes wiring gives a cleaner conference room look.
Create a Space With Your Needs and Clients’ Needs in Mind
You want your conference room to stand out and be useful to you, your team and your clients. Think about how you’ll use the space and what meetings you’ll hold there. Each company’s needs will vary, but your conference room is a way to convey your business culture and style, so the arrangement of your conference room is crucial. A new conference room with a successful design can also provide a fresh perspective for your team and increase productivity and job satisfaction.
Think about what size of conference table you’ll need. Even if you don’t fill every seat at every meeting, you’ll want to plan your room around your largest meetings to ensure you have enough space. Choose furniture that suits everyone, while also fitting comfortably. You’ll also want to choose furniture and other design elements that convey your business style and matches the rest of your office decor. Whether your company’s style leans more modern or traditional, there’s an elegant conference table for you. Custom conference tables ensure you get the professional look you want in your conference room.
Make Your Space Unique to Your Business
If you want your conference room to shine, consider adding personal touches and branding. You want your space to be exclusive to your company and recognizable to your brand, especially if you use your conference room to meet with clients and business partners. Choose furniture, decor and accessories that fit in with your company’s overall style and leave the right impression with everyone who comes in the room.
No matter what your style is, a custom conference table is sure to make an impression. Live-edge and reclaimed wood tables ensure that you have a one-of-a-kind table that may even become a conversation piece as well. Choose chairs and other furniture and elements that match the aesthetic you want, and keep a clean, uncluttered look throughout to convey professionalism.
You may even want to incorporate more overt branding elements in the boardroom, such as a well-placed logo on a glass wall, or even on the table itself. A custom conference table can include an engraved logo, or incorporate inlaid or vinyl elements. If you’re looking for a way to set your business apart from the competition and wow your clients, consider these options.
