Finding the right shape for your dining table

Finding the right shape for your dining table

Round - square - rectangular - oval or extendable?

The first question is always the shape of your dining table. Every person prefers a certain shape.
When purchasing, make sure that the table height and the seat height of your dining room chairs match.

Chairs with a seat height of 46 cm and tables of 76 cm are the standard. If you want to combine armchairs with the dining table , make sure that the table is high enough so that the chair and armrests fit underneath (which is particularly important in small rooms).

Round dining tables

Round dining tables are primarily very communicative. A round table has several advantages: everyone can see each other, everyone sits the same distance apart. You have a good overview of what is happening at the table. However, round tables require more space.

Rectangular dining tables

This shape is the best-selling shape for dining tables. Accordingly, we offer a wide range of designs, sizes and colors.

Square dining tables come in a wide range of sizes, from space-saving models for small rooms to large tables that can accommodate many people. Square tables are designed for smaller rooms. If space is limited, they can be placed against a wall or even in a corner. This way, the small table takes up little space.

Medium-sized tables are suitable as the anchor point of the dining room. They offer enough space for 2 - 4 people, while larger dining tables with a table top of 140x140 to 160x160 cm are ideal for spacious dining rooms or wide, open living-dining areas and larger numbers of people.

Oval dining tables
If your room is too narrow for a round dining table and you prefer round shapes, you might like an oval dining table. Note that the surface area of ​​an oval table is smaller than that of a rectangular table of the same size.

Extendable dining tables
Extendable dining tables are the best choice if you want to save space, but sometimes also invite several guests. This choice only makes sense if the dining table still has enough space to move around in the room even when it is extended.

In order to find the right table, you first need to measure your room and know approximately how many people will be sitting there each day. With us, you can find the right dining table for your dining room from a range of shapes, sizes, colours and designs.
