Dining Tables are pieces of furniture designed specifically for formal dining. Commonly sized small with four seats for small families or larger with space for six or more seats for group gatherings, dining tables are come in a variety of shapes and materials to best serve specific dining desires and aesthetics. Dining tables are the most central element when organizing a dining room layout at home.

How tall is a dining room table?

Due to lack of a set industry standard, dining room table height is often dependent on average chair heights. The general range is between 28-30 inches (71-76cm) although 30 inches (76cm) is seen as the most common height especially when looking at more formal dining tables.

How do you decorate a dining room table?

Dining rooms in general can often be underutilized, so decorating a dining room table can be a way to rejuvenate a space. First, one can invest in thoughtful table cloths, table runners, and dishes to elevate the dining room. A dining room table can be decorated by placing a centerpiece which can consist of a bouquet of flowers, a bowl of fruit, vases, candles, and various other accent pieces. Finally, a dining room table can act as a backdrop for seasonal or holiday decorations.

How wide is a dining room table?

The width of a dining room table varies depending on shape with standards typically determined based on the number of people at the table. A square or four person table ranges between 34”-44” wide (86.4-112cm) while a rectangle or six person table ranges between 36”-40” wide (91.4-101.6cm). A round table shares a similar range as the square table, but in diameter.

Kitchen Tables
Drawing documenting typical heights and widths of Kitchen Tables and Chairs with a girl working on a laptop for scale

Kitchen tables are pieces of furniture that have a flat smooth surface supported by one or more legs and are generally found in shared common spaces of the home. Typically smaller than a formal dining table, kitchen tables are efficient and adaptable to various kitchen setups. Today with apartments and homes becoming more multi-functional, kitchen tables have taken on a much more central role in space planning. The kitchen table is now seen as a shared space for doing work, collecting mail, eating meals, and playing games.

Kitchen tables have surfaces that are generally between 28”-30” (71-76 cm) from the floor with tabletop surfaces that come in any shape, size, and style.
