Determining the size of your new rectangular table can be a lot harder than it looks like. Especially when you’re moving into a new space, it might be smart to invest some time in determining the correct dimensions.
In order to make the right choice, we have collected a number of tips for you in this blog. That’s how you buy the right table with confidence!
Let's take a look at a rectangular table for 6 people. This is one of the most popular sizes, but after looking at some examples you’ll see there is more than one truth. To get into the details, we recommend reserving at least 60 cm for 1 seat. The space between seats is usually around 10-15 cm. For a rectangular table for 6 people, you’d end up with a tabletop length of 220-240 cm. You can use the sizes mentioned above as a basis for your search. Tip: do you have dining chairs with or without armrests? In the first case, it’s smart to take a bit more space per seat!
The frame does play a role in determining the right size. For example, do you opt for 4 classic legs in the corners? Then the dining chairs are already pushed a little more towards the inside. With a central frame, there may be more risk of hitting the frame in certain places. Try to map this out as well as possible during your orientation!
Good idea! When composing your rectangular dining table, it’s advisable to reserve extra space. Would you like to have the option to place extra chairs at the end sides, for example during a drink? Or do you plan to always leave the chairs there? In the latter case, it’s smart to go for a longer table with a considerable width. This way you don't get your legs entangled so easily.
