Looking for a new dining table? Below are some commonly asked questions …
How big should my dining table be?
The size of your dining table will of course depend on how much space you have. Keep in mind that you also need space around the table, because you have to be able to sit down at the table easily and walk around the table. It is therefore advisable to have at least 120cm from the wall. You also have to take into account the number of people sitting at the table. If you have less space, you can opt for a dining table with a width of 90 centimetres.
Should I choose a rectangular, square, round or oval dining table?
Yes, a rectangular dining table is the most popular because you have a lot of space on the table. But sometimes a square, round or oval dining table suits your space much better. For example, a square or round dining table is much more practical in a small space, and an oval dining table is especially suitable in a narrow space.
What is the ideal height of the dining table?
The ideal seat height for the table is difficult to determine because it is very personal. One person likes to sit a little lower at the table, while the other prefers a higher seat. Most dining tables have a height between 76 and 79 centimetres.
Will my dining room chairs fit ?
There are a number of factors to consider when choosing a dining table that matches the dining room chairs you already have. For example, pay attention to the leg of the table, the table rule and the space at the table. But also take the armrest of your dining room chair and the seat height into account.
Other furniture in the house
You may have never noticed, but other pieces of furniture – such as a sideboard or console table are often the same height as your dining table. If the new table is placed close to a sideboard , it may be that if the height difference is very large, it will not match well. Therefore, consider this before you buy a new dining table.
