Conference Furniture Checklist

There are certain key pieces that virtually every conference room is going to need. Here we explain the ins and outs of conference room furniture. Take a look at our conference/board room furniture checklist to be sure you have everything you need.
1. Conference table: This is the most important (and obvious) furniture piece. It will be the focal point of your board room. It's the one piece that absolutely must look professional and offer all the functions and benefits. A conference table's appearance can make or break your conference room.

It should have more than enough room for your typical business meetings in order to accommodate any extra visitors or for adding employees at a later date. It should also enable you to accomplish whatever tasks you need to do in the conference room, such as providing outlets for laptops and other media.  

Your conference table options: Size, shape, base, style, finish and electronic outlets  

2. Executive chairs: Executive chairs at your conference table are also a given. The same thing applies as with the conference table -- you should always have more than you will typically need. Imagine not having enough seating available in important meeting. It also gives you room to grow in the future.

Executive chairs should offer ergonomic options and having different types of chairs can be helpful to accommodate different employees' and guests' sizes preferences and needs. 

Your executive chair options: Color, fabric, style, seat height adjustability, arm rest height adjustability

3. Storage:
This is a highly overlooked necessity, but conference rooms also need storage. This can be in the form of lateral filing cabinets, bookcases or extra side tables, but you need something to keep your files, books, audio/visual equipment and other meeting necessities in. You may also need the horizontal surface as an impromptu task area such as collating.

Your storage options:
Height, width, number of shelves or drawers, adjustable shelves, locking cabinets, safety features, finish, color.

4. Presentation equipment:
You may also need presentation equipment in order to do PowerPoints and more. Having an up-to-date and professional looking setup is mandatory in today's office environment.

The types of displays, TVs, etc. you purchase depends on what your typical uses are during your business meetings. Have these factors in mind when picking out your equipment.

How to Make Your Office More Efficient

Not all offices are equal. You have an office and need to fill it with office furniture -- that much you already know, but the kind of furniture you choose and how you set it up makes a big difference in how your office functions. Learn how your office can be more efficient in three simple steps.

You need a plan when it comes to how your office will look and be laid out. If you don't know how or don't hire a designer to do it for you, you may find an office furniture store who also offers this service. Basic information such as dimension of your entire office space, private offices, open office areas, etc. and different tasks and functions will help you decide how to configure your office plan and where everything goes. These consultants can also give you space-spacing tips such as common task areas.

Selecting the best-looking, highest-quality office furniture you can afford is important in portraying a professional image for your business. Aside from appearance, your office furniture also needs to function well in your office space, which is another reason why dimensions and information on work tasks and functions are needed in coming up with the best office furniture plan.

This is possibly the most overlooked aspect of any office. Adequate lighting is important in accomplishing everyday work tasks, but it's also a health issue. Too much or not enough lighting can cause eye strain and lowered productivity. Ensure that your office lighting is efficient so that your business is running efficiently.

Tips for Finding a Comfortable Office Chair

Not all office chairs are built the same and neither are office workers, so there are plenty of options when you want to find the office chairs that works for you. Your office chair should be comfortable and provide the right back support and other ergonomic features so that you can work comfortably and efficiently.

What to look for in your office chair

  1. Seat height: The right height for your office chair allows you to sit up straight comfortably and place your feet flat on the floor. Also, pay attention to the back rest, which should come up to the base of your neck
  2. Adjustability: Many office chairs offer seat height, reclining and arm rest adjustments. The more of these options the better so that you will be the most comfortable.
  3. Padding and support: The padding on your chair should be firm but comfortable. You will only know this by sitting in one and testing it out for yourself.
  4. Arm rests: Some chairs have arm rests but some do not and those that do may or may not be adjustable. Depending on your job and personal preferences, you may want this extra feature for extra comfort.
  5. Swivel action: Office chairs will either be stationary or have a swivel action. Whether you want one that swivels depends on the work function of the person using it. An employee who may move around and change position a lot may want this feature.

Office chair buying tips

Now that you know what to look for, the next step is testing chairs out to find out what fits the best. Don't shop online for your chair -- you need to know for sure that it's comfortable in order to buy the one that's most comfortable for you.

At BiNA Discount Office Furniture, you can give your future office chair a test run and find the one that's made just for you. Save up to 75%!

Conference Table Buying Tips

How to choose a conference table

Are you in the market for a conference table? How professional your conference room appears to clients and your employees speaks volumes about your business, so make it as professional and high quality as you can. It's not all about aesthetics though. Finding a conference table that functions well in your conference room is even more important, so make an informed decision that's best for your company.

Refer to the following points as your conference table shopping guide so you can benefit the most from it

  • Take measurements of your conference room so you know what you're working with. Knowing the space's dimensions is important in deciding on the size of conference table you'll buy (and how much room you have available for other furniture such as chairs, a credenza, presentation equipment, bookcases, etc.)

  • Decide on the type of finish you prefer in a conference table (wood or laminate?). If you're unsure, you can consult your sales person on the pros and cons of each, and then make the decision on the finish that will benefit you most.

    • Special considerations for a wood conference table: although durable, your wood conference table top will still need to be protected (ask your sales person for your options).
    • Special considerations for a laminate conference table: laminate is very durable and last for many years, so you don't have to worry about scratches

  • You will also need to select what kind of base, top, color, shape and size your conference table will have. If you have no idea, your showroom consultant can help. By sharing details about how many people at any given time will be in on a meeting, what kinds of functions will take place in your conference room and what other needs you may have, you can find the right conference table.

  • Decide if you are going to need communication ports in your conference table to allow for easy outlet access for laptops and/or phones.
  • And finally, once you have your perfect conference table picked out, you can start selecting the kinds of chairs you need in your conference room -- leather, fabric or mesh. You want all business meeting participants and guests to be comfortable, so an efficient conference room calls for comfortable, quality seating.
