FURNITURE SELECTION AND PLANNING
Transfer Enterprises expert staff can help you select office furniture that will last for years, fit your existing space, and allow for easy expansion. Below are some tips and tricks for selecting new and used furniture.
How to Select Conference Room Furniture
When you are selecting conference room furniture, you should always allow for a minimum of 4 feet around any edge of the conference room table. For example, a conference table that is 10 feet long x 3 feet wide would require a room size of 18 feet long x 11 feet wide. A 60″ round table would require a room that is at least 13 feet x 13 feet.
You can also select a conference table based on how many people you need to seat at the table. A general rule of thumb is that you can fit one person per foot of a standard racetrack or rectangular conference table. So a conference table that is 10 feet long can fit up to 10 people.
You also may want to allow room for a credenza or other storage space in order to accommodate food, electronics, or other supplies, depending on how the room will be used.
If you are going to be giving digital presentations or need to allow for wired access to the internet or power supply, you may want to consider a wired conference table. Transfer Enterprises can turn almost any existing conference table in our showroom into a wire table if needed.
There are many styles and shapes of conference tables. If you are not sure what you need, talk to a Transfer Enterprises team member about the size of your room, how it will be used and the style of your current office décor. We can suggest the perfect configuration of table to fit your space.
Conference room chairs are also key – they should be comfortable enough for long meetings and should be adjustable to accommodate various leg lengths and body types.
Before you arrive at Transfer Enterprises, it can be very helpful to take some simple measurements of your office space and plot them out on a layout plan. This is especially important if you are planning on making an immediate purchase, as you want to make sure you select furniture that will fit comfortably in your office.
You can download a blank layout plan HERE on which to record your office dimensions. Then just show the dimensions to a TE team member, and they can help you find exactly what you need.
Transfer Enterprises will also be happy to come to your office to measure for you, ensuring you have accurate dimensions when selecting your final products. If you have a large amount of space or multiple rooms to measure, this can save you time.
