What Size Dining Table for My Room? Your Ultimate Guide

Choosing the perfect dining table is important! It needs to fit just right, complement your style, and withstand the test of time.

But how do you figure out what size dining table for your room? Fear not!

This blog is your ultimate guide to picking the perfect dining table size to suit your space. Get ready for a fun, witty, and informative read that will leave you an expert in dining table dimensions!

Measure Twice, Buy Once

Before you fall in love with a dining table, grab your tape measure. Knowing your room's dimensions is crucial.

Measure the length and width of your dining area. This isn't just about fitting the table; you need to ensure there's enough space for chairs and for people to move around comfortably. Allow 80cm from the wall, buffet, back of stools and that would be the perfect dining table size. 

Visualising Your Table

Use painter's tape or newspaper to outline or fill in where you envision your table.

This trick helps you see how much space the table will occupy and how it will flow with the rest of your furniture. If the tape doesn't hinder your movement, you're on the right track!

Choosing the Right Shape

Rectangular Tables

Rectangular tables are the most common choice. They fit well in longer rooms and can accommodate more people. But remember, they require more space. See our Artisan Dining Table

Square Tables

Square tables are perfect for square rooms and smaller spaces. They create a cosy, intimate dining experience but may not be ideal for larger gatherings. See our Cross Monarch Dining Table

Round Tables

Round tables are great for smaller spaces and promote conversation. They can fit more people than square tables of the same size but may be less practical in narrow rooms. See our Cross King Round Dining Table

Semi-Circle Ends Tables

Semi Circle Ends Tables combine the benefits of rectangular and round tables. They fit well in narrower spaces and can seat more people while maintaining a friendly, intimate feel.

To seat eight, round tables should be around 180 cm in diameter. Square tables should be about 150-180 cm. Rectangular tables should measure 210-240 cm long. This size is great for large families or those who love hosting grand dinners and holiday feasts.

Allowing Room for Movement-The 80 cm Rule

Ensure there's at least 80 cm between the table and the wall or other furniture. This space allows guests to sit comfortably and move around without bumping into anything. For more spacious rooms, aim for 120 cm.
