What Size Meeting Table?


  • 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
  • TOP TIP  –  use masking tape on the floor to mark out the size of the top


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 the 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.



How many people can I seat at a meeting table?

We have listed how many people can be seated at various sized table from 200 x 100cm to 150cm round. We have also included a calculation to work out how many people can be seated at a round table.

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




Get some masking tape & measure out the size of 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.



Gap between the wall?

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.



Meeting Table Height?


Height adjustable 8 person table

Meeting table heights range from 72cm to 75cm high. If 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 wheel chair users will not be a problem.
