A GOOD PLACE
1. how many people should be seated?
- 50 cm for a cramped seat
- 60 cm for a normal covered comfortable seat
- 70 cm for a festive covered spacious seating area
So, a dimensional table with a length of 250 cm can accommodate 4 comfortable or 5 somewhat cramped seats on each side and 2 more seats at the head sides.
3. what are the dimensions of the chairs?
- 45 cm to 55 cm for a chair without armrests
- 55 cm to 65 cm for a chair with armrests
Note for tables with skids or cheek frames: if all chairs are to be able to be pushed fully under the table, the internal spacing of the skids or cheeks must be observed. If, for example, three chairs 50 cm wide each are to be pushed between the frame, the internal distance must be at least 3 x 50 cm = 150 cm.
4. how wide should the table be?
Another criterion for the right width are the proportions of the table. To avoid too clunky look, it is recommended to choose a width of 80 cm - 95 cm for tables under 180 cm. For table lengths of 180 cm and more, a width of 100 cm can be chosen. For large tables longer than 300 cm, the width can be increased to 120 cm.
5. what is the right table height?
The clear height refers to the measurement from the floor to under the tabletop. Here, especially for chairs with armrests, it should be clarified whether the chairs are to be pushed completely under the table. Then the clear height must not be greater than the height of the armrests of the chair.
6. how much table can the room take?
For a bench, you can calculate with a little less distance. Here you calculate with the seat depth of the bench plus 20 cm.
In principle, it is advisable not to exhaust the space and give the table space. In some cases, it may be advisable to keep the basic dimensions of the table rather small and equip the table with a clip-on top for extension.
7. how to calculate the diameter for round tables?
|Ø||100 cm||110 cm||120 cm||130 cm||140 cm|
Round tables use the available space somewhat less favorably than rectangular tables. For a round table of 120 cm, allow about 80 cm - 100 cm all around for comfortable seating. So you should expect a total diameter of about 280 cm - 320 cm.
8. tips & tricks
- Can the chairs be moved far enough away from the table so that you can sit comfortably?
- Is there enough space behind the chairs to walk through?
- Is the distance to the walls and other furnishings sufficient on all sides?
