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.
Frosted Tables: these tables are popular because of their sturdy frames and are available in various shapes and designs to seat 4 6 and 8 people respectively. Frosted tables look great with black leather chairs.
For outdoor use wicker furniture is combined with aluminum and synthetic vinyl wicker. These allows for outdoor use with minimal protection. Aluminum frames last longer than rattan. They are more unyielding to the harsh outdoor elements. Resin wicker vinyl wicker and plastic wicker are also very durable.
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.
Now these tables are not cheap but they do serve a dual purpose and the way to look at it is that you don’t have to buy a dining table as well (anything to talk yourself into it) and they do look rather special when you see them up in your dining room. But before you rush off and get one check you have the room for one add 10 ft to the table dimensions to get the ideal cueing area around the table so for a 7 ft pool diner you will need a room of 17 ft by 14 ft to allow for playing the game.
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.
