Interior Design for Meeting Rooms

A meeting room is a vital component of any business office, but it doesn’t have to be boring. A beautiful and functional interior design for meeting rooms can transform a dreaded conference to a pleasant gathering. Use these tips for interior design for meeting rooms to inspire you.

  1. The color that you choose to brand your meeting room can really set the tone and atmosphere of the room. An important factor to consider when choosing your paint color is the lighting of the room. The lighting can make a big impact on the appearance of the color, so it is a good idea to review the samples of the paint that you are considering into the meeting room and look at them in the natural lighting of that room. This will help to give you a reference to the true color. If you are working with a smaller room, it is smart to choose lighter colors, which will make the space feel larger and more open.

  2. A meeting room must be functional, modern and adaptable. This means that choosing the right meeting table is extremely important in a meeting room. The conference table could be the centerpiece of the room. The conference table should be large enough to comfortably accommodate everyone, but should leave enough space that you can also easily walk around the table and chairs without bumping into things. If you expect to meet with groups of various sizes in this meeting room, you might consider purchasing a conference table that expands to fit more or fewer people as your needs change. Some conference tables have hidden compartments to hide electronics cables, which contributes to a clean, sleek feeling in the room. This can give your meeting room more of a high-end feel.

  3. Comfort is key when it comes to choosing chairs. You should choose chairs that accomodate most body types. Chairs should not be an area where you “save” on your budget ; it is worthwhile to invest in chairs that are worthwhile and durable. Signs of wear and tear on the furniture will make your office look run down to visitors. There are many varieties on the market that are more suitable for a meeting environment, and your designer can help you find one, in budget.

  4. In addition to the conference table, it is helpful to have a side table in your meeting room. This gives you a place to set up a coffee station or serve other refreshments. A side table also provides a place to set handouts or set up AV equipment.

  5. Consider the layout and flow that will work best for your situation. Two of the most popular layouts are either boardroom style, with one large conference table in the center of the room, or a U-shape layout. A U-shape layout creates a focal point for the speaker, while keeping the rest of the group close and involved in the discussion. If you need to have a white board or other equipment on the wall, keep that in mind when planning your layout so that all parties can view the board or other equipment clearly.

  6. Avoid clutter. Keep the meeting room as clean and minimalist as possible.
