What Size Meeting Table?
Each person sitting at a meeting table or conference table needs 80cm of space. For boardroom tables, you need 80-100cm to allow for a larger chair. This might change depending on how the table is going to be used. For very short meetings slightly less than 80cm is acceptable.
The distance between the edge of the table and the wall should be at least 100cm. We would advise more than this so the meeting table looks proportionally correct to the meeting room size.

Gap between the wall and the meeting table?
You should always allow a minimum of 100cm between the edge of the meeting table & the meeting room wall. We would advise more than this as a general rule so the meeting table looks proportionally correct to the meeting room size. For boardroom tables a 120-140cm space is advisable. You should always check your buildings fire regulations.
How to calculate what size table you need?
Each person needs approximately 80cm of space.
Round Meeting Table
Multiply the diameter by 3.14 then divide by 80 (cm).
Example / 120cm diameter meeting table / 120cm x 3.14 = 376cm circumference / 376cm ÷ 80cm = 4.7 / 4 people can be seated comfortably
Rectangular Meeting Table
Divide the longest side by 80 (cm) then the shortest side by 80 (cm)
Example / 200 x 100cm meeting table / 200 ÷ 80 = 2.5 (2 persons) + 100 ÷ 80 = 1.25 (1 person) x 2 = 6 / 6 people can be seated comfortably
- Meeting + conference tables – each person needs 80 cm of space
- Boardroom tables – each person needs 80-100 cm of space
- Gap between the table + wall – at least 100 cm
Get some masking tape & measure out the size of the meeting table then stick the masking tape to the floor in the shape of the top. Step back & see if the size of the table looks correct. If it looks wrong it usually is.
Meeting Table Height?
Meeting table heights range from 72cm to 75cm high. If the height is an issue the Power Height Adjustable Meeting Table might be a better choice. The height is adjustable from 74cm to 104 cm so access for wheelchair users will not be a problem.
