Round dining table 170 cm

Determining the size of a new dining table is one of the most important decisions to make. Especially when moving house, it can be difficult to find the perfect size. After all, if you are going to replace your current dining table, you know better what requirements your new addition must meet.

The size of the table top is what matters. If you want to go for a round dining table for 8 people, it is important to choose a size that allows everyone to sit comfortably at the table. Our experts have years of experience within the furniture industry and recommend choosing a round dining table of at least 170 cm. This is because with our 170 cm round dining table, you have plenty of room to move around, so you don't have to worry about not having enough leg room.

We would like to mention here that we have taken dining chairs without armrests into account for a 170 cm table. Dining chairs with armrests naturally take up a bit more space, which is why we always recommend choosing a 180 cm round dining table for such a set. Good to know: a round dining table of 180 cm means the cross-section of the table top. 

Note: do you have rotatable or lounge chairs? Then we apply different sizes. Please contact us.

Space around the dining table

When buying a round dining table for 8, it's smart not to focus only on the size of the tabletop. You don't want any surprises at home, so it's important to reserve enough space for the table. For the distance between the edge of the table and any wall, we recommend reserving at least 80 cm. Have a go at home with some tape so you can literally see what you are planning. This will give you a good idea of whether your wishes are among the possibilities.
