5 Ways To Create A Better Boardroom for Your Business

Boardroom Design Tips
These days, most big decisions and presentations take place in the boardroom. That being said, it's essential to create a professional meeting area designed around comfort, efficiency, and functionality. In today's post we'll highlight 5 key ways to enhance your boardroom that are sure to do just that. Enjoy!

1.) Keep It Simple

When it comes to professional boardroom design, it's best to keep it simple! You don't want to overcrowd your space with a bunch of bulky chairs and accessories that take away from the overall atmosphere. Design your space around 3 key elements to keep things simple. Element 1 is the table. As the main focal point of your space, the table you select should be used to showcase your meeting space and accommodate your guests comfortably. Element 2 is storage. Utilize wall cabinets to house stationary, documents, and presentation aids. This will help you create a more organized and professional boardroom. Lastly, the third key element is performance. To improve your boardroom performance you'll want to aid some key accessories like a presentation board, flat screen TV, or lectern for presenters. If you focus on these 3 simple elements, you're boardroom makeover will be on the path to success!

2.) Add Power

These days it's all about power in the boardroom, and we don't mean wall outlets! Powered conference room tables are the way of the future. More than ever businesses are using high tech conference, meeting, and boardroom table models with integrated power modules in order to speed up presentations and meeting efficiency. Brands like Mayline, Cherryman Industries, and Global Total Office are now offering factory installed power modules for tables that feature HDMI, USB, Audio, Phone, and Ethernet inputs. These customizable modules are a must have for businesses with multi media presentation needs and will no doubt improve any professional meeting space.

3.) Follow The Trends

Knowing the latest boardroom design trends will keep you space up to date and looking great for years to come. In 2015, hot trends include the use of powered conference tables as well as wall mounted TV's, and gray wood finish options. Modular boardroom table sets that allow for quick room  reconfiguring have also been quite popular this year. In terms of style, utilizing boardroom and conference room furniture with industrial design elements like metal will certainly boost meeting area appeal and keep your space on the cutting edge. When designing your space, be sure to research the hottest boardroom makeover trends to ensure you create a functional, versatile, and super cool environment of your business.

4.) Keep It Comfortable

Boardroom comfort is a key element that's often critiqued by business visitors. In order to provide a comfy atmosphere of your valued clientele, you'll need to select conference chairs that are up to the task. This year, sleek conference room seating has been the most popular choice. Chairs like the Joplin from Woodstock Marketing offer excellent comfort and space saving designs that will allow you to maximize the number of guests that can fit around your boardroom table comfortably. Utilizing stylish conference chairs built for comfort will enhance appeal while simultaneously earning you an abundance of positive compliments from your visitors. Keep it in mind that a comfortable boardroom is a functional boardroom. If guests are fidgeting and complaining, it's easy to assume they are not retaining as much information as you'd like them too. Consider a chair upgrade to improve comfort and focus in your space.

5.) Accessorize

While we touched on accessorizing the boardroom earlier in today's post, it's certainly helpful to take a more in depth look at this important topic. While the right combination of boardroom accessories will no doubt improve your space, adding too many products will make your meeting area feel crammed and ineffective. The top 5 boardroom accessories of 2015 are wall mounted TV's, beverage carts, lecterns, storage cabinets, and white board cabinets. These 5 main accessories all offer individual benefits that will help take your space to the next level. That being said, if you are limited by space, analyze the benefits of each to determine while will offer you and your business the most. If you don't need much storage space, you can probably avoid a bulky wall cabinet. If you feel providing your guests with refreshments is essential, a beverage cart is a must add product. Weighing the pros and cons of each boardroom accessory will help you eliminate "want" products and focus on "need" products.

The Wonderful World of Office Chairs

Office Chairs

With thousands of ergonomic seating solutions available to choose from in 2015, it hard to select the perfect model for your personal needs. That being said, in today's post we'll highlight everything you need to know about the world of office chairs to help you achieve ultimate comfort in the workplace.

Style

When it comes to office chairs there are plenty of style to choose from. Basic style identifiers include modern, traditional, leather, mesh, and fabric. You'll also want to shop for new office chairs based on what application they are designed for. Office tasking chairs are great for both professional and home office computing applications. Executive chairs are typically used by upper management and feature luxurious leather upholsteries and high end features. Big and Tall chairs are heavy duty and support users from 350 to 500 pounds. Before selecting your new chair, take the time to research the various styles and determine which will best suit your needs and work environment.

Brands

Choosing a name brand office chair for your workspace is the way to go. Avoid lacking knock offs and low quality products whenever possible to ensure you get the most out of your seating investment. That being said, we thought it would be helpful to provide you with a list of industry leading office chair manufacturers you can trust!
  • Global Total Office
  • Eurotech Seating
  • Offices To Go
  • RFM Preferred Seating
  • Mayline
  • Hermann Miller
  • OFM, Inc.
Ergonomics

The word "ergonomic" is probably heard on a daily basis in just about every office on the planet. Office ergonomics is the search and application of products to better our functionality, comfort, and efficiency. Ergonomics can be used to describe a variety of workplace elements, but are most commonly applied to seating. While not all ergonomic chairs are created equal, most on the market today will have some form of ergo feature designed to improve your work day. Features like adjustable arms, lumbar support, syncro tilt mechanisms, and headrests are all incorporated into chairs to hep you get through those long days at the office. While all of the ergonomic bells and whistles are nice, it's best to work with your dealer of choice to hone in on the key features that will work best for your particular needs an body type. This will help you maximize comfort and avoid overspending on features you don't really need. 


Upholsteries

While we touched on upholsteries quickly in the style section of today's post, they certainly deserve a bit more attention! The upholstery used on your office chair will play a key role in determining the life and longevity of your chair. Seating upholstery is graded based on the amount of double rubs (abrasions) it can withstand. The higher the grade, the more durable the upholstery. That being said, some fabrics can actually be more durable than leathers and vice versa. When selecting your office chair, be sure to inquire with your dealer about what fabric upholstery grade the chairs you're considering are crafted with.

Shopping

When shopping for office chairs for the home or business, you'll certainly be looking to maximize your budget. Start your search online and look for popular office chairs with good reviews. Once you've narrowed down your search to a few chairs, visit a comparison shopping engine online and search out your favs. Google Shopping, BizRate, Shopzilla, Amazon, and Bing are all top choices. But like with most things, Google reigns supreme. Their shopping engine offers more office chairs than any other and is very user friendly. Here you will be able to sort your favorite chairs by dealer and price while also seeing coupons, free shipping specials, and promotions that will help you save. If your purchasing multiple office chairs of your business, contact your dealer of choice to inquire about bulk discount pricing. This is an excellent way to save and is typically far more budget beneficial than your average coupon. Newsletter sign ups and online coupon sites tjoos.com and retailmenot.com are also great ways to keep a little extra money in the wallet when chair shopping!
