Formal dining spaces may be used less frequently than other areas in a house, but a dining room remains a desirable feature, whether it is a distinct room or integrated into an open plan. Shapes and sizes of dining tables, chairs and furniture need to be considered so that personal movement is not impeded when the room is fully in use. Table and seat heights tend to be standard but all else varies greatly. Take into consideration your decor, your lifestyle and how frequently you will use the space when you’re planning a layout and shopping for furnishings.

Expand dining space visually, if you can’t find any extra room. Build a wall of windows around the dining nook, if the space is *****. For example, having just a table and four chairs near a wall of windows will create an open feeling for breakfast or lunch. You can always store extra chairs in a nearby ******* or living area, and add them just for meals or when guests come over. As another choice, add mirror tiles to one wall of the dining room to visually enlarge it.

You can use the measurements below as a recommendation and guideline, but make sure to measure your room and any furniture you plan to bring into it before making a purchase. You should also be aware that sometimes dining table dimensions may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, so do not assume that all tables that seat four people will always have the same size. Even 2 inches can make a difference if you are considering furnishing a smaller dining room.

Dining Table Clearance No matter what shape your table is, leave at least 30 inches (76cm) between the edge of the table and an obstruction (wall or sideboard – or anything else) to allow people to take their seats. With 30 inches it will still be very ***** if people get up in the middle of the meal. The ideal distance for dining table clearance is 48 inches (122cm). This allows people to come and go from the table comfortably and the proportions of the room will look more elegant. To make sure the table isn’t too small for the room, make sure that there isn’t more than about 6ft (183cm) from the edge of the table to the nearest wall, window or piece of furniture on at least one side of the table.

Design Resource Traditional. Traditional dining rooms can be generously proportioned, as this one is. Long, rectangular tables that adjust with leaves typify its style, while a sideboard provides storage for table linens and serveware and functions as a serving platform. Freestanding glass-enclosed ***** cabinets are still readily available; however, the design here shows a built-in that serves this purpose on the wall between the windows. This room also hosts a fireplace on an opposite wall. Spaces with these features and furnishings require a larger-than-average room. You will need at least 14 **** (4.3 meters) in width and 16 ft. (4.9 m) in length for a similar arrangement, but 15 ft. (4.8 m) wide by 20 ft. (6.1 m) long will likely function better.

If you only occasionally need to seat many people at your dining table, you may want to use a round table with leaves that give you the flexibility to expand or reduce its size. However, you may also buy an oval dining table if you just like the shape. These are also suitable for smaller spaces because corners don't stick out.

Roost Architecture Inc Suburban open plan. This dining table is nestled between the end of the ******* and a living area. Its proximity to the ******* takes care of tableware storage. The rug underneath helps to define the parameters. Notice that there is plenty of space around the table and chairs. Be sure to provide extra space when placing dining tables within circulation routes, as has been done here. Not only does traffic pass from the ******* into the living area, but it also crosses to exit through the sliding glass door to the right and connects to the room at left. Leaving 48 to 60 in. (122 to 152 cm) beyond the edge of a table can be sufficient for this type of layout.
