A dining table is the centerpiece of any dining room and the place where families come together to enjoy a meal. It’s also a classic piece of furniture that can last for generations. If you’re wondering how many people you can seat at your dining table, you’re not alone. It’s a common question, and when it comes to choosing a dining table, size is an important factor to consider. Not only do you need to make sure the table is the right size for your dining room, but you also need to make sure it can comfortably seat the number of people you want to have around it. To help you choose the right-sized dining table, we’ve put together a quick guide on table sizes and seating capacities.

The right size of oak dining table for your Home

The oak dining table should be big enough to comfortably seat all of your guests, but not so large that it dominates the room. You’ll also need to leave enough space around the table for people to move around easily. The dining table size guide below will help you determine the ideal dimensions for your dining table. Keep in mind that these are only guidelines – you should always consider the specific needs of your family and home before making a final decision.

When deciding on a dining table size, the most important factor is the amount of space you have available. Once you have the total table size, you can start to look for tables that will fit in your space. Keep in mind that you will also need to leave room for chairs, so be sure to factor that into your measurement. A good rule of thumb is to allow for at least 80 centimeters of clearance around the perimeter of the table.

Dining tables come in all shapes and sizes, from small round tables to large rectangular ones. The size you choose will depend on the amount of space you have in your dining room and how many people you want to be able to seat around the table. In our article, you will find more information about how to choose the best size and shape for your oak dining table. In order to ensure that your table is the perfect size for your dining room, it is important to know the standard measurements for 4 seats for oak dining tables:

If you are still not sure what size or shape of dining table you should choose, below you will find a graphic tip on table dimensions, sizes, and seats. It can help you with how to place the chairs at the dining table and how many people you can seat. We hope it helps you with the choice of your perfect oak dining table.

Keep in mind that these are just the standard measurements. If you’re looking for a custom-made table, at SFD Furniture Design you can always specify the exact measurements that you need and find technical information for each of our dining tables.

Round dining tables

Tables in this shape undoubtedly encourage conversation and social meetings. Round and oval dining tables facilitate eye contact and make each person feel visible and important. Round dining tables are a great way to add a touch of elegance to your dining room. They are also a great way to save space, as they can be squeezed into smaller spaces than rectangular or square tables

Non-extendable round dining tables:

  • 100 cm table can seat up to 4 people
  • 110 cm table can seat up to 4 – 5 people
  • 120 cm table can seat up to 5 – 6 people

Oval dining tables

When it comes to dining tables, oval is always a popular shape. The lack of sharp ends makes such tables also suitable for families with children. It often happens that oval dining tables need more space than, for example, rectangular tables. This is not a problem for us, because in our offer you will find both larger and smaller wooden tables that will be perfect for a smaller dining room. Some of our round dining tables can also extend to an oval shape.
Non-extendable oval dining tables:

  • 140×100 cm table can seat up to 4-6 people
  • 140×110 cm table can seat up to 6 people
  • 140×120 cm table can seat up to 6 people

Extendable oval dining tables:

With one extension board (43-50cm) – Dimensions added to non-extendable tables

  • 190×100 cm table can seat up to 8 people
  • 190×110 cm table can seat up to 8 people
  • 190×120 cm table can seat up to 8 people

With two extension boards (2×43-50cm) – Dimensions added to non-extendable tables

  • 240×100 cm table can seat up to 10 people
  • 240×110 cm table can seat up to 10 people
  • 240×120 cm table can seat up to 10 people

When measuring for oval dining table seating capacity, you will need to account for the width of the table and the chairs. The table should be at least 100 centimeters wide so that everyone has enough space to eat comfortably. The chairs should be about 40 centimeters wide so that they can be tucked under the table when not in use. You will also need to leave at least 60-80 centimeters of space between the edge of the table and the wall so that people can walk around the table.

The SFD rectangular dining tables

A square dining table is a great option if you want a more intimate setting for dinner. Square dining tables will be perfect when we do not have a large dining room. In this case, you can put it against a wall or in a corner, which will save us valuable space. 

  • 80 cm table can seat up to 4 people

These measurements are the ideal size for a square dining table that can comfortably seat up to four people. If you have a larger dining space, you may want to opt for a slightly wider or longer table, such as a 90 cm square table. But if you have a very small dining room, a smaller size, such as an 80 cm square table, may be a better option.

When choosing a square dining table, make sure to leave enough space around the table for people to move comfortably. You should allow at least 90 centimeters on each side of the table. If you have a larger space, you can opt for a larger table or even an extendable table.
