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.
