What is the ideal size of a dining table?
The size of the dining table is based on number of persons, and how big a room you have for it. Minimum space for Dining for one person counts 60 x 40 cm. Be sure to add 70 - 75 cm on each side of the table so that the chairs can be pushed back. If, like most people, you run into a space problem during the measuring process, don't be afraid to consider a well-placed bench that saves precious centimetres by not having to move out of the way.
Table for 4 - Minimum 130 x 80cm, ideally 150 x 90cm and larger
Table for 6 - Minimum 180 x 90cm, ideally 200 x 100cm and larger
Table for 8 - Ideally 260 x 100cm and larger
