CHOOSING THE RIGHT DIMENSIONS
for Your Dining Room

If you have ever shopped for a dining table before, you will know they come in all kinds of shapes and sizes.  How do you know which one is right for you?  Having a table that looks great is really important; having a table that fits perfectly in your dining room, allowing your family and guests to sit comfortable, allowing room to walk around the table is critical.

Here are a few things you should take into consideration when designing the perfect table to fit your dining room.

Making sure your table fits well in your dining room
Measure your dining room so you have a clear idea of the space the table needs to fit.  If your dining room has a buffet or other furniture, make sure you take them into account.  If possible, you need to leave 1200 mm (1.2 metres)  around the table so your family and friends can easily move around the table while others are seated.  Your table will enhance the look of your room if it mirrors the shape of the room. Square tables enhance the look of square rooms and longer, rectangular tables look great in a rectangular room.  Although most larger mass produced dining tables are also quite wide, a narrower long table may be the perfect fit for your dining room.

Choosing the right size
Now you know the maximum size for your dining table, there are a few other factors which might help you decide on a size.

We recommend a height of 740 mm.  This is a standard height for dining tables, but you can change it if you have particular needs.

If you place food in the centre of your table, your table needs to be at least 900 mm wide.

You should allow 600 mm per person at your table plus another 300 mm (giving an additional 150 mm at each end of the table), allowing room for people to sit at the head and foot of the table).  The following sample sizes are based on this formula.

Some Sample Sizes
Standard 6 person table:  1500 x 900 mm
Standard 8 person table: 2100 x 900  mm
Square 4 person table: 900 x 900 mm
Square 8 person table: 1500 x 1500 mm

Need something more compact?
Bench seating will take up less room than individual chairs and make your dining table more flexible. Contact table and desk if you would like to add matching bench seating to your order.
