What size conference room table fits into this office space? Our conference room calculator can help.

Conference Room Size Calculator

How do you choose the appropriate size conference table for your conference room?  Here is a conference room size calculator to help. 

A general rule of thumb is to have at least 42” between the edge of the table and the wall or other stationary piece, such as a credenza.  This allows just enough room to walk behind a person seated at the table. 

In order to determine the maximum size of conference table that will in your conference room, you will need to measure the length and width of the conference room.  Then subtract 7’ from both measurements, and what you have left is how big your conference table can be. For example, if you have a room that is 19’ long x 12’ wide, then the maximum size of table that will comfortably fit in your conference room is 12’ long x 5’ wide.  However, keep in mind that unless you are buying a custom conference table, there are a limited number of standard sizes offered by most conference table manufacturers.


19′ x 12′ Room Size – 7′ =  12′ x 5′ maximum size of conference room table 

Example 2:

21′ x 10′ Room Size – 7′ =  14′ x 3′ maximum size of conference rom table

Conference Table Dimensions

If you have the flexibility to choose the size of your conference room, then the most important thing to consider when choosing your conference table size is how many people you need to seat around the table. Generally speaking, you should allow for at least 3’6” per chair.  However, with social distancing, you will want to consider more space with fewer chairs. Another common rule is that the number of chairs that will fit around the table is the same as the length of the table, meaning 12 average size chairs will comfortably fit around a 12’ table (as pictured above).  If you select a large-scale office chairs for your conference table, this rule may not apply.

Conference Room Size for 10

Although we have encouraged you to have 36″ to 42″ of chair movement space, this client needed a conference room size for 10. The room size was only 15′ x 7’7″. You can see how tight the space is in this room. We had to customize the table in depth and length. There are (2) mobile tables at 50″ x 28″ in this space. The chair was very important. When the conference room is not in use, the arms needed to fit under the table. The chairs also needed to be mobile. The client selected the Herman Miller capers from our used office inventory.
