How Much Does a Conference Table Cost?
Last Updated: January 06, 2022
You probably don't spend a lot of time thinking about the quality of your office furniture. But, it plays a significant role in creating a first impression for guests, clients, and employee candidates. A conference table is one of the most important pieces of office furniture you will buy. Unlike cubicles or back-office furniture, this is the piece that most of your guests will see. It should be attractive, sturdy, and functional.
About Conference Tables #
Most conference tables are made of wood or wood veneer (plywood). The most popular finishes are cherry and mahogany. However, less expensive laminate conference tables are also available.
Conference tables come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Most are rectangular or oval, measuring anywhere from six feet to 30 feet in length. However, triangular-shaped conference tables are growing in popularity.
Conference Table Average Costs #
Conference tables usually cost anywhere from $3,000 to $5,000. That may seem like a large investment, but high-quality conference tables last for many years - even decades. You can find conference tables for sale for considerably less. But, be especially wary of these items. They're usually low quality and may have to be replaced after only a few years.
- A 12-foot long conference table with a cherry finish usually sells for $2,500 to $3,000.
- A 24-foot conference table in a cherry finish that seats more than 20 people would likely sell for $4,000 to $5,000.
Choosing a Conference Table #
Consider the size and shape of your room when shopping for a conference table. It's important to choose a table that is appropriate in scale to the size of the rom. Plan to leave about four feet of empty space around the table to accommodate chairs and allow for room to maneuver.
Lastly, make sure to find out if the table comes preassembled prior to placing your order. Preassembled tables are convenient, but only if you can fit them through your conference room door. Take measurements first to make sure.
