A well-designed conference room is an under-rated feature that most companies are missing out on. Having a beautiful, accessible, conference space that’s perfectly suited to your business can help you bring in and keep clients and help you inspire your employees to be more productive and engaged. There are numerous factors that you will want to consider as you begin designing your perfect conference space, just be sure that it’s kept clean. Even the best conference room is immediately at a disadvantage when it’s dirty.
Consider Table Setup
When choosing what kind of furniture to include in your conference room, your table should be one of the essential features. Depending on the space you have available, and the number of personnel you will usually have in attendance, you will want to consider different options. While a large oval or rectangle is common, you might also try a theater style or a u-shaped option.
Pick The Right Room
Having a space that is removed from distractions and bustle is critical to ensuring that your meetings go off without a hitch. When possible, choose a room that is far away from your lobby and out of hearing a range of construction sites. If this is not an option, it’s essential that you add soundproofing measures to remove distractions.
Natural light is a great option when possible; it helps improve mood, keep people awake and aware, and reduces eye strain. However, it can also cause glare, heat, and trouble seeing if it is too bright. Having blinds, curtains or a window tint can help eliminate issues while giving out the best lighting. If natural light isn’t an option make sure to use white or blue toned bulbs to replicate natural colors and improve mood.
Keep It Comfortable
Last but not least, one of the most important features of your conference room is your seating. Your employees and guests need to be able to sit through lectures and presentations in comfort. If your seating is uncomfortable or hard to move in, attendees may pay more attention to the seat they’re in and not the topic you’re covering.
