Boardroom design can be fun and enjoyable if you effectively space plan and shop smart. Today on the OfficeAnything.com blog, we'll share the tips and tricks you'll need to do just that. From effectively measuring your space, to adding cool room accents, we're here to help you make your boardroom the best it can be. Enjoy!

1.) Effectively Measure

Every good makeover project starts with accurate dimensions. Don't rely on old blue prints and get burned when your new office furniture doesn't fit properly! Take the time to effectively measure your boardroom. Take note of all entry ways, power outlets, windows, and load bearing room obstructions that will affect the way your items fit. Double check your dimensions for accuracy. You can never be too careful during this essential step of the makeover project.

2.) Get Inspired

To make your boardroom the best it can be, you'll need to be inspired! Take to the web and search for "boardroom makeover trends". This year, gray wood grain furniture, European style conference room seating and powered tables have all been in style. You can also browse social sharing sites like Pinterest and Instagram for cool boardroom makeover ideas to incorporate in your space.

3.) Plan Your Space

Once you're inspired, it's time to plan out your space on paper. Draw out a rough sketch of your boardroom and make a few copies. Plot out a few different layouts to determine where your boardroom furniture and seating will be most effective. Don't assume a specific layout will work properly. It's always better to plan your project in advance.

4.) Shop For Value

Everybody loves a great deal! When taking on a boardroom makeover project, you'll no doubt want to maximize the budget. That being said, shopping for value is an absolute must. When browsing the web for new boardroom furniture, be sure to keep an eye out for free shipping specials. Boardroom products are typically quite heavy and incurred shipping charges will quickly eat into your budget. Before making your purchase, contact a few dealers direct to ask about bulk discount orders and additional savings your order may qualify for. If you're purchasing multiple chairs and a table, the odds are you'll be rewarded with a few extra bucks off. Don't miss out by forgetting to call!

5.) Select Space Saving Chairs

The days of using bulky, overstuffed conference room chairs are long gone. These days, sleek mesh and leather office seating solutions are the way to go. As you'll no doubt want to maximize the number of guests that can be accommodated around your table, using space saving chairs is a must. If you need a few suggestions, we recommend the Joplin from Woodstock Marketing and Valore from Mayline regularly. These two chairs provide excellent support, don't cost a fortune, and won't take up too much elbow too!

6.) Go With A Powered Table

Streamline your important meetings with a powered boardroom table in 2016. Rest assured, running extension cords across your well designed boardroom won't leave a great impression on your valued visitors. On the other hand, a high tech boardroom table with plug and play capabilities will save time during meetings while kicking productivity into high gear. Powered conference tables from best selling lines like the Global Total Office Zira collection can be customized with HDMI, USB, Audio, Phone, and AC input options to meet your specific business needs.

7.) Add Cool Accents

No successful boardroom makeover project is complete without the right combination of accents to enhance productivity, organization, and appeal. Start by improving productivity by adding a folding presentation board and wall mount TV. These two tools will come in handy during strategy and collaboration sessions. Next, get organized by adding a wall cabinet to your space to house important presentation materials and literature. Last but certainly not least, enhance appeal by adding cool wall art, lighting fixtures, and an area rug to compliment your space.
