In respect to this, what is a standard size round table?

Round table sizes. Diameter is the key measurement for a round table. You can seat four people at a table that is between 36" and 44" in diameter; four to six people will fit at a table that's 44" to 54" in diameter, and your table should be 54" in diameter or larger to fit six to eight diners.

Furthermore, how much space do you need for a 60 inch round table? You want to have 24″ of aisle between tables. To compensate for chairs, round tables should be set 54 inches apart, and rectangle tables should be set 60 inches apart.

Simply so, how big is a round table that seats 4?

Does a round table save space?

In most cases the answer is yes because a round table offers the same usable table space with less of a footprint compared to rectangular tables of equal size. Take away the annoying corners and the fact that people are not sitting shoulder to shoulder and you have in a round table a better fit for the available space.

Measure side to side across top-center of the table top. Measure from the ground to the top of the table. *We recommend a cover 1-2 inches shorter than the furniture for breathability. Measure side to side across top-center of the table top.

Do round or rectangular tables take up more space?

A round table is perfect for when you want to encourage conversation around the dining table. The same is true for square tables; however, square tables take up more space than round ones. And for the same number of diners, it's better to opt for a rectangular one, as it offers more seating areas.

How big is a round table that seats 6?

You will need at least 48 to 60 inches in diameter (4–5ft; 122–152cm) to seat six at a round table, working best with a pedestal base. It is possible to create a tight 6-seater round dining table with a diameter of 44–54 inches, but aiming for 54–60 inches is a more comfortable fit and may even squeeze in eight.

Can you seat 10 at a 60 inch round table?

The 60 inch, or 150 centimeter, round banquet table, seating 8 or 10 people, is possibly the worst invention in the history of the hospitality industry. If you're having roundtable discussions, on the other hand, a 60” or 72” round table is great.

What shape table is best for a small space?

An oval table is very similar to a rectangular shape table, but visually it uses up less space because of the rounded corners. Therefore, oval tables are a great fit for a narrow or smaller size room. Many oval tables also come with leaves to extend their capacity.

How do you measure a round table for a glass top?

Place the tip of a measuring tape on the center of the table vertically. Stretch the measuring tape straight across to the opposite side. Use this measurement as the diameter and size for a round table top. Use this measurement as the size of a square tabletop or the width of a rectangular tabletop.

Can I put a round table in a rectangular room?

As far as the shape, look to the shape of your room for direction. In a square room you can use either a round or square table. In a rectangular room, a rectangular or oval table works best. If you happen to have a large rectangular room, you also can do something very different and use two round tables.
