The best meeting rooms are usually flexible enough to accommodate many different activities and serve several functions at once. Of course, the physical space available will have an impact on this, but we’d argue that the furniture and accessories you choose are much more important.
Step 1: Choose your chairs
At Mogo Direct, we have absolutely everything covered here. For a start, you might want to consider the kind of chairs you’re going to need. Any room will have a maximum realistic capacity for seats, so it’s best to estimate this and ensure you have enough seats to match your tables (more on those later).
When all of your chairs aren’t needed, your storage space might determine the best option to go for. Stacking chairs can usually be kept safely in stacks up to around 10 chairs high, depending on the exact model, while folding chairs can be stored in or moved through narrower spaces.
If your priority is to make sure everyone is sitting comfortably throughout your meetings (which might be advisable for longer sessions), consider some of our upholstered and padded options. We have a great range of ergonomic, multi-functional designs to choose from.
Step 2: Choose your tables
Folding tables are a fantastic solution for many meeting rooms. Our new Mogo Premium Meeting table is a great choice, available in a range of shapes and sizes to seat up to eight people. It’s so secure when assembled, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to fold up the legs and store it when you need to use the meeting room for a different activity.
The Otto Tilt Top Table is a flexible alternative that’s extremely easy to use, with just one single motion required to raise the table top out of the way, allowing you to wheel the entire frame around safely. Other options, such as our Flexitables, can be rearranged and securely linked together to form a completely customised layout.
For more formal meetings, you might prefer to choose one of our larger options such at the popular Arrow Boardroom Table. Many more choices are available, so be sure to check the entire range for something that suits your needs.
Step 3: Choose your accessories
To make your business meetings, seminars or team projects more memorable and enjoyable, it’s a good idea to complete your meeting room with some practical accessories. You’ll find a full range of storage furniture, displays and supplies here, including portable whiteboards and flipcharts which always come in handy.
By making sure you have everything you need ready and organised in advance, you should be able to make the most of even a small office space and keep productivity high.
