Choosing the Right Dining Table for Your Tucson Home

Whether you’ve just moved to a new home in Tucson, or you are looking to replace an old set, choosing the right dining table for your home can be a little tricky! Furniture Connextion has a few tips to help guide you through and help you make sure you find a dining table that is just what you need!

 

Find the Right Size

First, measure the table-to-wall clearance in the room or space your new dining table will go. Start by measuring the space around the room. Creating a rough sketch on some graph paper with your room measurements can be a great help during this process! Next, to allow your diners to sit down and get up easily from their chair, leave a space of 42”-48” between your table and the walls. If you have furniture along the wall, such as a buffet, measure 42”-48” from the edge of the furniture instead of the wall. This will give you a good idea of what size table you can fit into the space you have.

 

Find the Right Shape

Round tables work very well for small spaces. They easily fit into those tighter areas and can also fit more people around it since there are no corners! A round table with a pedestal base instead on table legs, can also seat more people since it allows for more legroom and won’t get in the way of a dining chair. When looking at round tables, the following calculations are generally a good guideline to follow:

  • 3' with a pedestal base seats 4
  • 4' with legs seats 4
  • 5' with a pedestal base seats 6
  • 5' with legs seats 4
  • 6' with pedestal base or legs seats 8
  • 7' with pedestal base or legs seats 9

If you are looking to seat a larger group of guests, a rectangular table maybe a better choice. A rectangular table can work well in a long, narrow room or space. It can leave more space around it for traffic flow, and makes sure food platters are easily within reach. If you are looking at a rectangular dining table, use the following sizes to help you decide how large of a table you need:

  • 4' long seats 4
  • 5-6' long seats 6
  • 7' long seats 8
  • 8-9' long seats 10
  • 10-11' seats 12

Keep in mind, as most tables increase in length, they also increase in width. Make sure you still have a comfortable space between the wall and the table for your dining chairs if you increase the length of your table.

 

Find the Right Features

Look for different features that will help make your dining table unique! Even though a round table can be a great space saver, a larger table might make is difficult to reach your food in the center. Adding a Lazy Susan or finding a table with a Lazy Susan built right in can help solve that problem.

If you are looking for a rectangular dining table but are a little more limited on space, look for a dining set with a bench on one side—or both—instead of chairs. This way, you are able to push the bench under the table when it isn’t being used so it won’t be taking up any extra space!
