The ideal dimensions for dining tables depend on the shape

Dining Table Dimensions

The proper dimensions for dining tables are decided by their design, seating capacity, and the amount of space required for each individual. Here are some general specifications for 6, 8, 10, and 12-seater dining tables in millimetres.

A great idea is to use masking tape to create a measurement for the size of your dining table. Place your chairs around that to get a sense of your area.

These dimensions give enough space for each guest to sit comfortably while also accommodating dishes and plates. They can, however, be altered according to the available space, chair size, and personal preferences. Don’t forget about the amount of space around the table for chairs and walking – Christian suggests a minimum of 1000-1200mm.
