What to​ look for when buying a​ conference table.
I​ find that are two areas that are the most important in​ an​ office the reception area and the conference
room .​
There are many choices out there when it​ comes to​ conference tables .​
There are different shapes,
sizes and finishes as​ well as​ different styles of​ bases that hold up the tables .​
The conference room has to​ be a​
special area .​
I​ find that make a​ statement with there conference room are more prevalent survive .​
In the
following I​ want to​ discuss the process as​ well and things to​ watch for when buying a​ table .​
The first step in​ buying any piece of​ furniture is​ to​ measure the space with a​ tap measure .​
One of​ the
most common mistakes is​ counting tiles .​
This is​ not good because the tiles my have been cut down several
inches or​ you may have additional creep of​ the holding rails in​ the ceiling .​
All this may reduce or​ add to​ a​
space and is​ at​ times deceiving .​
It takes several minutes but save a​ lot of​ time when looking for the right size of​
a table .​
The second is​ to​ leave space for the chairs .​
On several occasions, I​ have had clients buy wonderful
tables were too big and had no room for the chairs or​ a​ credenza .​
Typically, it​ is​ a​ good idea to​ leave 36 to​
40 on the longer sides of​ the table and 42 to​ 48 .​
If you want to​ add an​ end table or​ a​ credenza Just, add 20
to 24 for the depth .​
Some people will put tape down to​ make sure there is​ ample space to​ move .​

The third is​ of​ course style and purpose .​
Most people like to​ follow the motif of​ the office .​
There are
various opinions on this concept .​
I​ am of​ the school that disagrees .​
I​ think the table should be make its own
statement and should not necessarily be to​ match the other furniture .​
Although matching the doors or​ any
additional furniture is​ important .​
Purpose is​ the more important of​ the two .​
For example if​ you are a​ computer
company and will have several laptops to​ present to​ your client having jacks is​ important.
Tables are of​ two finishes laminate or​ wood veneer .​
You do not see real-all wood tables any more .​
are all pressboard tables and then veneer is​ placed or​ painted on the wood .​
There are different finishes to​ the
laminate such as​ smooth, shiny, coarse and different edge details and thickness .​
To veneer there are less
color options there a​ variety of​ finishes .​
Most people just look at​ the color and that is​ fine .​
The other is​ shape
of the table .​
There are several common shapes .​
Racetrack- which is​ in​ a​ shape of​ a​ horse racetrack .​
Boat –
This is​ parallel on the ends and bows out like a​ boat on the long sides .​
Rectangle – This is​ a​ rectangle shape
table .​
Round – Round tables are usually smaller .​
There are also base configurations .​
Such as​ drum-
completely round .​
½ drum – half round .​
Panel – strait and wide base .​
V shaped – like the letter v .​
X shape-
like the letter X .​
But I​ have seen hundreds of​ other table base designs such as​ free standing legs and there .​
These are the basic rules which I​ following when recommending a​ table to​ a​ client .​
Budget is​ also an​
important aspect .​
There are some other things to​ watch for .​
The height of​ the table .​
Most bases are a​
standard height .​
Getting a​ thicker table may look like a​ better choice but if​ you have tall employees or​ clients
this may reduce there comfort level .​
Finally, the time aspect .​
many people procrastinate buying a​ table and
suddenly have that supper important meeting and have nothing in​ place .​
Many times the great tables are not
in stock or​ a​ popular one goes out of​ stock .​

Using these rules should help with the buying experience .​
