Dining Tables and Chairs Sizes - A spacious dining room requires large whereas small sleek dining sets can be easily accommodated in smaller dining areas. For regular family meals a four to six-seater table is appropriate for most living arrangements. However for large family get-togethers or for entertaining guests you may need extra dining space - this is where larger extendables come in which can accommodate 8 to 10 diners happily. Dining tables with removable leaves are a popular choice in a large number of modern homes. These tables can be adjusted accordingly to accommodated diners during special events. In a dining set the table and chairs are selected to match each other. However if you are buying chairs and tables separately make sure that the design color and materials of the chairs complement the table and are at an optimal dining height.
Height of the Table - While most dining tables are about 30 inches in height some will vary depending on style. Chairs that are made to accompany dining tables normally span an average of 18 inches from the seat down to the floor. Pay attention to these heights because you want to allow ample room for people’s legs when they are sitting at you dining table. Generally there should be about 12 inches allowance between the bottom of the tabletop and the top of the seat.
The size of the room does not necessarily dictate whether the table should be tall or short. As a matter of fact there are very beautiful looking bar-type tables that seat two people with bar-style chairs that fit in small space. However the bar stools should still follow the same guidelines to ensure that there is enough leg room for the diners.
Size of the Room - The best way to determine what size your dining table should be would be to measure the room and ensure that there will be at least three to four feet on each side of the table for people to push their chairs back and stand up comfortably. Setting a small dainty table in a large and spacious room will be too overwhelming in the room therefore making the table look smaller than it actually is. On the other hand a large table in a small space will not allow room for people to get up from the table and move around. So finding the right sized table for the room is going to be vital.
Size of the Table - To allow each person to have ample elbow space when they are eating you should select a dining table that provides at least 24 to 30 inches of surface area for each person. If you are purchasing a rectangular table you will need to add about 12 inches of surface space for the people who are seated at the foot and the head of the table. Additionally picture the table in the room that you are purchasing it for. Will it look proportionate to the room? Will the dining room swallow the table up? Will the table look overwhelming in the room? These are important factors when purchasing a table for a dining area.
Choosing a table that is appropriate for the dining room is not so easy. With the plethora of designs one gets perplexed as to which one is the best. Well here you should first consider the size of the dining room is it small or big enough to accommodate a large table? Size of the family of course matters when it comes to choosing the table and here you will have to consider how many people will be seated at the table in one go.
