When asking a question like this you might be surprised with the answer.
It really depends on what the customer is looking for, to what answer we are able to give. For example, do you want the table to be 3 metres long or 1.5 metres? Depending on your answer the price will vary quite considerably. Here's a few things to consider when looking for a boardroom table.
If you have a particular space for the boardroom table, it might be better to tell us that, instead of the size of the table needed. From experience we can recommend a table to suit your needs. With this we can also advise how many people you could sit around the table. We deal with a range of manufacturers so we can offer a larger selection of boardroom tables. Some manufacturers will provide a made to order service so if we need to get something that's not in our catalogues we can source for you. Tables vary in size but popular sizes are currently 1800mm, 2000mm, and 2400mm wide by 1000m deep.
After looking at the size of table needed, we would then move onto the shape and practicality of the desk. Arrow head, rectangular and boat shape are all popular designs. With a lot of offices now requiring an internet connection, laptops are used more in meetings/ conference calls, so a power supply maybe needed.
Do you need to use the room for anything other than a meeting, if so, maybe you need to consider the table being mobile. We have a selection of conference/ meeting tables that have a flip top for easy storage. We've recently had a customer contact us that hires a yoga instructor once a week for employees, therefore the meeting room doubles up as a studio space. Having mobile furniture can make these kind of activities possible.
If your trying to match a new boardroom table to other areas of the office, again we can help. Our large supplier base comes with big advantages on finishes. Oak, grey oak, maple, grey, black gloss, are just a small selection of finishes available. We can ask for colour swatches to be sent out to customers for you to see/ match from. If you'd like further information on this service please email or call our office in Leicester.
One of our manufacturers, Narbutas, have a HPL finish, which is a hard wearing surface. Small scratches can be manipulated out with heat. Depending on the type of business, this could be very beneficial. If this finish would be of interest to you, please contact our office for prices.
Are your meeting tables going in a breakout area? If so you might want to consider variations of height. Having tables with stools could be seen as more casual and get people collaborating. Ocee, do a great meeting table with an A frame around for you to add lights, planters, white boards to. Adding foliage and string lighting to meeting tables could add another dimension to the office space.
