So, what’s it all about then… you know, this boardroom lark? It seems an office just isn’t the same without that special meeting room, with its boardroom table, boardroom chairs, boardroom shelves and sideboard. But it also seems a lot of expense for something that’s not filled that often… or is it?
Well, it’s not just a room where The Board meets these days, that’s for sure. The boardroom is actually a room that’s often used to impress important existing and potential clients. It’s a room where key personnel can discuss critical business challenges. It’s a serious room (and rightly so) that sets the correct tone for communicating information to staff, contractors and suppliers.
So, getting the ambiance right is crucial. Getting the balance between aesthetics and functionality can make or break the initial impression someone gets when walking in for the first time. And one critical component in achieving the desired effect is the boardroom furniture. Let’s have a look at each piece in more detail:
The boardroom table – aspects to consider:
What size should it be? The table needs to be small enough so as not to make the room feel cramped, but large enough to convey the correct message. At CamHam, we can advise you on what is the best size boardroom table to suit your needs.
What shape should it be? Would you like straight end, radial end or barrel shaped? Often, this will depend on how many people you need it to accommodate regularly, as well as the shape of the room.
What material should it be made from? Should it be wood, metal or some other material? It’s worth considering what sort of meetings will be held there, what sort of people will attend regularly, and how you want them to consider your company.
What technology does it need to accommodate? Do you need to remove cable clutter, and such like, from view?
Boardroom chairs – aspects to consider:
Should they be different to your office chairs next door? Part 1 - Each business has different requirements, but often boardroom chairs are different to the chairs elsewhere in the office. They set a different tone. And ultimately, given the purposes of this particular room, we’d recommend you ask yourself what you’d like your most important customer to be sitting in when you’re trying to win that next deal. Leather or synthetic… the decision is yours.
Should they be different to your office chairs next door? Part 2 – Boardroom chairs are likely to have different ergonomic design requirements. Sometimes important meetings last a very long time. People get distracted. And one thing that can add to their distraction is discomfort. So, it’s important that boardroom chairs cater for people’s comfort, whilst still remaining functionally and aesthetically pleasing.
Other boardroom furniture – aspects to consider:
Storage… do you need it? – Well, even boardrooms need to be able to hide unnecessary clutter from time to time. Remote controls, company brochures, spare flipcharts etc., they all need a home until they’re required. Sleek boardroom sideboards offer an excellent solution that can match your boardroom table and chairs and provide aesthetically appealing functionality with style. Plus it gives you somewhere to put the sandwiches…
