When it comes to dining tables, size does matter

Dining Tables Dimensions

The ideal dimensions for dining tables depend on the shape, seating capacity, and the amount of space needed for each person. Here are some general guidelines for 6, 8, 10, and 12-seater dining tables in millimeters:

A great tip is to measure the area using masking tape as a footprint of your dining table size. Place your chairs around that to obtain a feel for your space.

Rectangular dining tables:

Length: 1600 to 1800 mm
Width: 900 to 1000 mm

Length: 2100 to 2400 mm
Width: 1000 to 1100 mm

Length: 2600 to 3000 mm
Width: 1100 to 1200 mm

Length: 3200 to 3600 mm
Width: 1200 to 1300 mm

Round dining tables:

2 / 2
Diameter: 1200 to 1500 mm

Diameter: 1800 mm

Diameter: 2000 to 2100 mm

Diameter: 3000 to 3500mm

Square dining tables:

4 -seater:
Side length: 900 to 1000mm

Side length: 1600 to 1700 mm

Side length: 2000 to 2200 mm

Side length: 2400 to 2600 mm

These dimensions provide an adequate amount of space for each person to sit comfortably and allow room for dishes and serving platters. However, they can be adjusted depending on the available space, chair size, and personal preferences. Don’t forget to consider the clearance around the table for chairs and walking – Christian personally recommends a minimum of 1000-1200mm.
