Every day, Interior Concepts sales professionals are out in the field helping customers plan the most effective office spaces possible. Recently, the company interviewed its own sales team to learn about the process that they go through when designing tables with customers.
Although planning a room with tables in it sounds like a simple process, it can be done most effectively with some insight from professionals in order to create a functional space that increases productivity as well as collaboration. Since tables are an essential aspect of any learning or office environment, learning about design tips from professionals will make a difference in your space, according to Interior Concepts.
Define the Problem – The Interior Concepts sales professionals begin by finding the problems in the furniture space that need to be solved. They believe that defining the issues that need to be addressed like the room size, how many people need to fit and the function of the room work together to create the best space.
Determine if Power is Needed – It is important to find out if the tables need power. If they do, find out whether the power comes from the wall, floor or ceiling. According to Interior Concepts, knowing the power source will determine the best way to incorporate power and connectivity into tables.
Consider Mobility – You should have an idea of whether the room will be multi-functional. If the room needs to be reconfigured frequently, decide what be done to the design to give the room flexibility. Interior Concepts suggests that options which can increase flexibility include flip-top capability and casters for mobility.
Review Table Sizes, Shapes, & Options – Depending on how the tables will be used will help to determine table size, shape, and options. Interior Concepts suggests that regarding sizing, table width per student ranges anywhere from 30"-36” with 32” being just about right.
