What Size Table Do I Need for My Chairs?

Choosing the right size table for your chairs is crucial for creating a comfortable and stylish dining area that you actually want to use. 

At Robert Rose Carpentry, we understand how important it is to find the perfect fit for your home. 

Here’s a guide to help you choose the right table size for your chairs, ensuring everyone has enough space to sit comfortably.

Measure Your Space

Before you start shopping, measure the area where you plan to place your table. It’s not just the table that needs space; you also need room for chairs and to move around comfortably. Proper planning ensures your dining area feels spacious and inviting.

1. Measure the Area:

   – Use a measuring tape to determine the length and width of your dining area.

   – Consider the overall layout of the room, including windows, doors, and any existing furniture.

2. Allow for Movement:

   – Leave at least 80 cm between the table edge and the wall to allow for easy movement and chair placement.

   – This space ensures that everyone can sit down and get up without bumping into walls or furniture.

Tip: To visualise the space, use masking tape or string to outline the table dimensions on the floor. This method gives you a clear idea of how much space the table will occupy and how it will fit into your dining area.

How Many People Will Sit at Your Table?

Think about how many people will regularly sit at your table and how many you’ll need to accommodate for special occasions. This consideration will help you choose the right size and shape for your table.

1. Regular Use:

   – For everyday use, aim for a more spacious seating arrangement.

   – Consider how your family uses the table daily for meals, homework, and other activities.

2. Occasional Use:

   – When guests arrive, you can make seating a bit cosier.

   – Opt for a table that can expand or an extendable table to accommodate extra guests without compromising on space.

Space Per Person

Each person needs a certain amount of space to sit comfortably at the table. Here’s a simple guide on how much space each person needs at the table:

Narrow space: 50 cm per person

Cosy space: 60 cm per person

Comfortable space: 70 cm per person

Choosing the Right Table Width

The width of your table is also important. Here’s what you need to know to ensure enough space for dining essentials:

– Narrow table: 80 cm – Suitable for small spaces and intimate dining.

– Cosy table: 90 cm – A balanced option that provides comfort without taking up too much space.

– Comfortable table: 100 cm – Offers plenty of space for dishes, decor, and elbow room.
