You don’t need to be a designer to figure out what size table will work best in your space. We’ll share the tips and tricks we’ve gleaned over our years of building solid wood tables for dining rooms and kitchens all over the country!

First, you’ll need to know the measurements of the space where the table will be placed.

1. Measure table-to-wall clearance

Measure the space around the room. To allow diners to sit down and get up easily from their seats, try to leave 24”-48″ between your table and walls.

Pro Tip: Using painters tape to mark the size of table you’d like is a great way to get a visual reference of what your new space could look like before you commit to a table size.

2. Measure table-to-furniture clearance

If there is furniture in the dining space, begin your 24”-48″ measurement from the edge of the furniture instead of the wall. This will allow you to get an accurate measurement for which table size best suits your needs.
