Your office probably has a lot of meetings, and because of this, it’s important to make sure your conference room is a good space. Employees will spend a lot of time in your office’s conference room, so it should be a comfortable place. Your conference room is important for potential clients as well, so it’s crucial that it’s visually appealing and comfortable. When designing this space, you’ll want to blend functionality and aesthetics. Here are some things to consider when designing your office’s conference room.
What will you use your conference room for? This is an important question to ask yourself when you’re designing it. If you will be holding large, inter-departmental meetings in you conference room often then you’ll want to make sure there’s enough furniture for employees to use. Regardless of what it’s primary use will be, you will want to invest in some ergonomic furniture. Your employees and clients will thank you for it.
Good lighting is important because having it can greatly improve people’s moods. It is harder to stay attentive in a meeting when the lights are dim, and potential clients may subconsciously feel like your company wouldn’t be a good one to work with. Getting as much natural light as possible into your conference room is a good way to create a warm, inviting mood.
No matter what you’re using your conference room for, you’ll want it to be free of distractions. If you can, you should put your conference room in a place where there isn’t much foot traffic. It can be difficult to have a meeting when you’re competing with outside noise. Making sure the inside of your conference room itself is distraction-free is a good idea too. If you decide to decorate the walls, make sure to use warm colors. Also, ensure that any posters or pictures you have hanging up don’t stand out too much.
