Table Seating Calculator

Use this calculator to find out the minimum table length based on the number of guests you'd like to seat.




A simple rule of thumb to quickly know a table will fit in your space:

-Keep 3' of space on each side of the table clear so that people seated at the table can have a space to pull out chairs, or move around freely behind those sitting at the table.

-Pay attention to other furniture. If you have a buffet against the wall, measure three feet out from that piece of furniture.

How to choose a table size

HOW TO CALCULATE THE RIGHT SIZE TABLE:

1) Measure the length and width of your dining space.

2) Subtract 6 feet from the length and width of the space to allow a 3’ clearance on all sides.

3) The result is the maximum size recommended for your dining table. For example, if you have a 12’ x 9½’ space, the maximum size for your table would be 72” x 40”.

-Allow about 2’ per person at a rectangular table,though you can squeeze in more chairs when needed.

Seating rule of thumb:

-A 48”-long table seats 4

-A 60-72” table seats 6

-A 80-87” table seats 8

-A 92-108” table seats 10

-A 120” table seats 12

-A 42-48”-diameter round table seats 4

-A 60” round table seats 6-8
