This conference room planning guide is offered as an efficient tool that can help you get started on the process of selecting and buying your conference room furniture. There are practical size & code requirements for fitting conference furniture into a room. The most important consideration is the size of your room because the conference table’s size, its shape, the size of the chairs and any ancillary storage credenzas, must be planned according to your room’s capacity. It is very important that the room does not appear cramped or crowded.
The charts and guide lines provided here are a starting point. You must know what size table you are going to need in order to obtain accurate quotes. When you look at a photo and see 10 chairs around a table generally you’re looking at a 10’ table with four chairs on each side and one chair at the ends of the table. A quick way to find the appropriate size table is take the length of the room and subtract 10 feet. This allows 5 feet at the head of the table for walk space. If you have a 22 foot room a 12 foot table is a great fit. Yes, you can go for a larger table if you are willing to sacrifice walk way space. But remember that there are code minimums that need to be considered Not all conference tables have the same kneespace clearance and you might have to settle for fewer chairs around the table than the standard guide lines that are listed here permit.
If you are adding credenzas and storage remember that most storage is 20” or 24” deep. You must also take door swing clearances into consideration.
