What size meeting table do I need?
These guidelines will help you make sure that your new conference table is the correct size for your needs. (Measurements refer to rectangular tables).
6 person table
The minimum size of a modern meeting room tables will seat up to 6 people in comfort and measure 200cm x 120cm.
8 person table
For meetings of up to 8 people the table should be 240cm x 120cm.
10 person table
A slightly more flexible size to accommodate groups of 8 - 10 comes in at around 300cm x 120cm. For bigger groups there are a couple of useful sizes; for 10 people it’s 360cm x 120cm.
12 person table
For the large groups, say 12 - 14 people, we recommend 400cm x 140cm. Need something different? Bespoke sizes are available for large tables. Please ask for details.
How do I calculate the size of table I need?
You can calculate the correct table size by allowing a set amount of space for everyone who will be seated around the meeting room table.
A good guide is to allow approximately 80 centimetres of space at the table per person. Take into account what they’ll be doing to work out if extra space will be required, for example for computers or paperwork.
Don’t forget that you may need to allow slightly more room for people when using wide meeting chairs or larger boardroom chairs.
What is the standard height of a table?
As with dining tables, the standard height is 72cm high but this can of course vary from product to product with some designs coming in slightly higher or lower than others. If the design you like is non-standard it’s a good idea to think about meeting chairs and ensure that your preferred designs work together.
For a high meeting room tables you will need a 100 or 110 cm office table. These heights can be used for standing or sitting on a high office stool.
Suitable meeting chairs:
Be especially mindful if you’re intending to use larger chairs or meeting chairs with armrests and make sure your boardroom table can accommodate them.

Can I order a table with cable management?
Keeping the office clear of trailing unsightly cables is always important, and never more so than in meeting and conference rooms where investment furniture plays a big part in creating great first impressions to visitors and clients.
All tables have the option to add cable grommets, cable trays or hatches, power sockets or USB charging points. Some of these can be set into the top of the desk for easy access or hidden below the top surface with a panel or top which keeps the sockets covered.
