Designing the Perfect Executive Boardroom
There’s lots of information out there about how to run great meetings, but you will find less direction on how to design the perfect executive boardroom. This is a shame since the design of that room can have drastic impacts on the effectiveness of your meetings. So, here are some tips for getting your boardroom right:
- Know the purpose of the room. If you want to hold useful and productive meetings you need to understand the needs of those on your team. So, choose the room based on a size that will most adequately meet those needs. This means determining the purpose of the boardroom. Will it be for small collaborative meetings? Will it be for clients? Does it need to be designed for privacy or regular access? Knowing these answers will help you in the next step.
- Decide how to equip the room. Before you move into the more creative aspects of design you need to determine what equipment will be necessary to make the room most productive and beneficial to those who use it. If you need audio/visual products, then make sure those things are installed in ways that everyone has access. Add speakers or projectors, as necessary.
- Choose the right furniture. Now that your technology aspects are identified, you will need to determine if people will need to be able to swivel to see them. If so, make sure you pick chairs that are on wheels. And when it comes to tables, think about how they will be used. Will you need the traditionally large center table, or will your work be better supported by smaller versions for collaborative small group work? And, will those spaces need charging ports included to ensure productivity and appropriate access to laptops or tablets?
- Consider the lighting in the room. Soft lighting might make people want to fall asleep whereas excessively harsh lighting might give them headaches and make it hard for them to read things you pass out. Lighting is crucial, but it can only be properly determined once you have decided the purpose of the room itself and the location. If you have a lot of natural light available use that to your advantage!
