The size of the perfect round dining table for 6 people
You don't just buy a round dining table. It’s a large purchase, so you want to be sure you don’t regret it later. An important aspect of your new dining table is the size.
Are you in doubt and struggling to make the final decision? No worries! The aim of this blog is to help you, so let’s ease that mind of yours!
Size of a round table for 6 people
Determining the size for your new round table is more difficult than most other shapes. The most important size here is the diameter of the tabletop. At Table du Sud, we advise a diameter of 140 cm. Note, however that this is the standard size, and that you can easily deviate from it by going for a round dining table of, say, 130 or 150 cm. Below, we have listed some important tips for you, making it easier to pick your right size. Tip: with our 3D configurator you can easily compose your new dream table from the comfort of your home.
You may not immediately think of your dining chairs when purchasing a round dining table, but it’s a good idea to take them into account. For instance, different dining chairs take up different amounts of space, meaning it can (and should) influence your table choice. It’s important whether you have slender dining chairs without armrests, or dining chairs with armrests, as the latter need way more space. Be sure to keep this in mind when composing your new dining table. Tip: Are you really unsure about the size? In the case of dining chairs with armrests, go for the largest option. Extra tip: we also sell dining chairs in all shapes and sizes. Kill two birds with one stone and complete your dining room or kitchen!
Frame in combination with the correct size
During the composition of your dining table, you will have to deal with both the specifications of your tabletop and the specifications of the frame. As you may know, we also make and spray the frames ourselves in Heeze, Brabant, which means that we have a lot of freedom. This has now led to a large collection of frames for you to choose from. With a round dining table for 6 people, it’s smart to be on your toes when choosing a frame.
With a frame that has various elements positioned towards the edge, such as an X-shape, it’s extra important to carefully consider the position of the chairs. This way, you prevent a lack of legroom in some places. Would you like to know more about the place where we make your table? Then read the frequently asked questions about our workshop!
Advantages of a round table
The round table has been a classic in our households for centuries. But what are the advantages of a round table? Well, it can be the perfect solution if you have a relatively compact dining room or kitchen that doesn’t fit a long, rectangular dining table. In that case, you can make efficient use of the space you have with a round dining table. In addition, a round dining table exudes cosiness, as everyone can look at each other without any effort. That’s not only fun during dinner, but also during game nights and parties. Tip: view our round dining tables for inspiration and choose from various popular sizes such as oak, walnut, ceramics, and Fenix.
