It should be fairly obvious that a decent work space produces the best results from your team. Hence why production often skyrockets after you revamp your office space. Too many of us overlook the conditions in which we work. In truth, though, light levels and general atmosphere have a massive impact.
Your office itself isn’t the only thing that needs attention. If you spend a lot of time in a meeting room, this also deserves some care. Much like with your office, updating here can increase productivity. Additionally, this may be a room where potential clients spend time. As such, you should aim to make it the smartest space you can if you want to make a good impression.
There is a wealth of guides out there which can teach you how to design a meeting room. That’s not what we’re going to focus on here. Instead, we’re going to look at the accessories you should include after all the hard work is complete. They may seem like a relatively small part, but accessories make the meeting room. Here are some that you shouldn’t forget:
If you want this room to be a productive space, you’ll want to include a whiteboard in there. This is especially crucial if you use this area for brainstorming with your team. Paper may have served well until now, but a whiteboard can offer an interactive experience for all. You staff can return to the whiteboard throughout the day to remind them of points discussed during your meeting and they can wipe off tasks as they complete them.
The mounted projector
It should go without saying that you need a projector in your meeting room. Without one, your client may struggle to take you seriously or your presentations could look unprofessional and sloppy. Invest in a projector if you haven’t already, then look into universal projector mounts. As well as helping with your meeting room aesthetic, this ensures your projector is ready and waiting when you need it. You won’t even have to worry about setting up. How’s that for professional?
A little bit of greenery
While this last point has less of a practical purpose, it’s important just the same. Chances are that you already know how important plants are to offices. A splash of greenery keeps things fresh and helps more people with morale than you could imagine. The same can be said for your meeting room as this may be a space that doesn’t get much fresh air. As such, plants can help to keep the place fresh. Stock up on one or two plants and find unique places for them to enhance your meeting area.
