Meeting room is a room whose furnishing is often underestimated. In the better case, the choice of furniture and accessories for a meeting room is all about a dominating custom-made desk and quality chair. But if you want your meeting room to fully use its potential, we recommend you to follow these five rules. You will get a room for valuable meetings, creative brainstorming and also an awesome space for representative and important meetings with business partners.
How to furnish a meeting room
At the beginning, you need to consider the main purpose of using your meeting room. That will help you to decide on the specific pieces of furniture and overall design of the room. When designing a meeting room, you need to follow 5 simple rules.
1. The room dimensions and disposition
The area of the meeting room and the floor plan are the specifying parameters for the choice of furniture and accessories. The size and the shape of the office desk should be adjusted to the space you have available. Don't forget the desk is not the only piece of furniture you may need in a meeting room. Apart from office chairs, you will probably also appreciate display cases, cabinets for binders or smart tables for a refreshment during a coffee break.

The design is what will help create the right atmosphere of your meeting with your clients or your company meetings.

It may not seem so, but if a meeting room is used for more purposes (trainings, meetings, brainstorming), variability is a substantial factor. For example, if it is necessary for the people in a meeting to turn around or move during a presentation, choose roller chairs. If the meeting room is also used for meetings of individual teams, try to find alternative seating possibilities. Creative debates will be more relaxed and people in the room will get many outstanding ideas.
The rules of ergonomics do not only apply to correct ergonomic sitting or suitable height of desk. It is important to order individual pieces of furniture in the meeting room properly. Consider light sources or sufficient width of transition zones and create a room where there is just what you need - nothing more and nothing less. The energy you create thanks to space ergonomics will significantly reduce tiredness and improve the effectivity of all meeting participants. Furniture in the meeting room and the impression evoked by the meeting room can considerably influence your meeting or negotiation. This positive influence should already be considered at the point of designing and planning your meeting room.
