One question we are ask frequently concerns table size, so we thought we would address that here TO HELP WITH YOUR NEXT TABLE PROJECT.
To size a table to a room subtract 6' from the length and width of the room (or any furniture along the wall like a buffet) this will give you the maximum length AND WIDTH the table can be, giving three feet all the way around for walking room. SUBTRACT 6' FROM SMALLEST ROOM DIMENSION TO GET THE MAXIMUM DIAMETER OF A ROUND TABLE.
bELOW IS AN EXAMPLE DINING ROOM.
iN OPEN SPACES USE THE 3' RULE TO FIND THE MAXIMUM SIZE OF A TABLE, MEASURING 3' TO THE NEARST WALLS AND OTHER OBJECTS LIKE A KITCHEN ISLAND, TO FIND THE MAXIMUM SIZE.
below IS AN EXAMPLE.
