Round / Square Tables

Round / Square Tables

A circular table is generally accepted to be the optimum shape for sociable dining. To seat 4 you need a diameter of at least 90cm, to seat 6 at least 120cm, to seat 8 at least 150cm.

When measuring the space, don't forget to add in 90cm all round for the space required to push back, and rise from a chair. Measure the available space - width and length - and subtract 180cm from both to check the maximum comfortable table size.

Square tables have the same capacity, are equally sociable, and have extra serving space compared to a round table. You'll need minimum of 90cm square to seat 4, 120cm square to seat 6, 150cm to seat 8.

Pedestal designs tend to be better for leg clearance than four leg tables - particularly if they extend.
