Conference Table Dimensions

Conference Table Dimensions

The following size guide will help you calculate the space needed in a boardroom or meeting room based on conference table sizes. Adequate planning and purchasing the right furniture is important for making a good impression on clients, customers and employees. For planning your room it is best to give between 30 & 36 inches per seat and a minimum of 3 feet or 36 inches between the table ends and the walls.

If you want a room that feels more spacious, 4-6 feet between the walls and the back of the chairs is suggested. You can request a free CAD design for your room, just let us know the dimensions of your space, how many seats you need and we will provide you with a layout of the space.

The most common conference table size is 12 FT long, while other common lengths are 8 FT and 10 FT. For small and medium size businesses this is usually more than adequate to hold meetings for 8 to 10 people. The larger the conference table, the more leafs will be required. Each leaf extends the length 2-4 Feet and the table can be extended to virtually any length you need.

Some meeting spaces may require several tables in order to accomplish the task of allowing one person to conduct a meeting in front of a large group of people. Most commonly, training tables will be arranged theatre style where 1 to 2 people can sit at each 5 – 6 FT long training table which is faced directly at the person who is giving the presentation.
