What Makes an Effective Meeting Space?

Posted on: January 22, 2019

With the hustle and bustle of an office, nothing brings employee motivation to a halt like a poorly designed meeting or conference room. A traditional conference room is defined by harsh fluorescent lighting, uncomfortable seating, and large, cumbersome tables. By investing the time needed to create an efficient and result-driven environment, you can transform your conference room into an effective and productive meeting space.

Function of the Space

The first step of improving your meeting space is defining the purpose of the space. Like the meeting itself, a space without a defined purpose is often unsuccessful. Taking your space and the needs of your employees into consideration is essential. Questions to consider when designing your space include:

  • What types of meetings will the room be used for? How many people does it need to accommodate?
  • Is this space for internal use only, or is it a client facing meeting space?
  • How does your team work best? Do they meet in small groups or bigger teams?

After you’ve answered these questions, you’ll have a better understanding of the type of room your company is in need of. Understanding the function of your space helps drive your choice in furniture, design elements, layout, and more.

Contact Zoom, Inc. today to find out how we can help you enhance your office’s meeting room.

Choosing the Right Furniture

From the size and shape of your conference table to selecting the perfect seating, furniture can set the tone for your meeting. If your space requires flexibility and room for collaboration, your furniture needs to reflect that.

Blending function and aesthetics in your office’s meeting space begins with furniture. If your meeting space has a large screen that may require adjustment for people to see properly, you should consider seating on casters. You also want to ensure that your meeting space’s furniture will last, so selecting furniture made of durable materials is essential.

Arming the room with the right access to technology and equipment can keep your space flexible and useful for various presentations, brainstorming sessions, and more. That includes access to electrical outlets and USB charging ports, as well as whiteboards or display screens.

Zoom, Inc. offers everything from traditional office furniture to modern collaborative furniture.

Meeting Room Layouts & Design

If your space needs to be flexible, creating a room that allows for multiple layouts can add layers of functionality. Make sure your flexible space allows for room to easily move around and rearrange furniture on an as-needed basis.

Studies have shown that office spaces that feel creative and inspirational are more likely to motivate employees. Considering your brand when choosing the design of your space is important, from colorful furniture to inspirational quotes or logos on the walls.
