How Many Chairs Will Fit on My Dining Table?

Posted by Susan Mcatee

Are you looking for a new dining table or dining room chairs and would you like to find out how many dining room chairs fit around your table? An average household consists of four people, but it is of course as pleasant as people can eat with them. You often need a table for 6-8 people. In this blog, Dime house gives you useful tips, and we answer the question: “How many chairs will fit at my dining table?”

The appropriate number of chairs around your dining table depends on a number of factors:

  • The desired space for fine dining
  • Dining room chairs with or without armrest
  • The size of the dining table and the space around it

THE DESIRED SPACE FOR DINING

We recommend booking 70 centimeters per person to be able to sit comfortably at the table. A dining room chair is often 45-50 centimeters wide. Of course, you also want to be able to hang your arms along with the chair and you want to have some personal space. 70 centimeters is the ideal size for any person who wants to dine comfortably.

DO YOU OPT FOR DINING ROOM CHAIRS WITH OR WITHOUT ARMRESTS?

Do you want to reserve less than 70 centimeters for each person? That is also possible of course! We recommend purchasing dining room chairs without armrests. Dining room chairs without armrests save a lot of space. Maybe even an extra chair will fit your dining table!

THE SIZE OF YOUR DINING TABLE

Dining tables come in all shapes and sizes. Dime house has round oval, rectangular, and square tables. In the overview below, we would like to show you how many dining room chairs fit your dining table. Are you stuck? If you have any questions, you can always contact our customer service:

RECTANGULAR DINING TABLE

Dime house has rectangular dining room tables in a length ranging from 140 to 300 cm. All our rectangular dining tables are 80 to 100 cm wide. The table below is an estimate of the number of dining room chairs around your rectangular dining table.

ROUND TABLE

A round dining table is very cozy; the dining table is often the prominent centerpiece of an interior. And where better to come together than on a round model? Dime house has a wide range of round dining room tables with a diameter of 60 cm to 150 cm. You can use the table below as an estimate for the number of dining room chairs around your round dining table.

OVAL TABLE

Our range includes oval dining room tables ranging from 160 cm to 280 cm. You can use the table below as an estimate for the number of dining chairs around your oval dining table.

SQUARE TABLE

Dime house offers small square bistro tables for the lowest price! You can use the table below as an estimate for the number of dining room chairs around your square dining table.

THE DESIRED SPACE AROUND YOUR DINING TABLE

When placing your dining table, also consider the space around it. It is very annoying if you have too little space to sit and stand up. When the dining room table is parallel to the wall, we recommend reserving 60 centimeters around your dining room chair without walking space around. Do you want more walking space around? Then take 120 centimeters into account.

Do you not have a lot of space around your dining table and chairs? Then consider a dining room sofa. A dining room sofa takes up less space and offers plenty of seating. Ideal for a family with young children! The sofa can practically be placed against the wall without reducing your seating comfort.
