How to Choose the Perfect Size Dining Room Table

How to Choose the Perfect Size Dining Room Table

When you are looking for furniture stores in Calgary, it is important to find the right store to give you guidance for your dining room table. The size of the table is very important – you want to make sure that it is the perfect size for your needs.

Our Furniture Extreme team offers some tips to help you choose the perfect size dining room table.

Size Matters

Of course, the first and major factor in deciding on the size of your dining room table is the room size and the table size. Length, width, and height all come into play when furniture shopping. If you have a smaller dining room, you might want to look for a smaller table or a pedestal table.

You also need to make sure that the table will fit through any doorways and that there is enough space around it for people to comfortably pull-out chairs and sit down. The general rule of thumb is to leave about 36 inches between the edge of the table and the wall or any other furniture in the room.

Capacity Counts

Another big factor in deciding on table size is how many people you want to be able to sit at the table. If you have a large family or entertain often, you might want a table that can seat six or more like our Lanceyard Dining Table. But if it’s just for everyday dining or you have a smaller space, you might be perfectly happy with a dining table set or table that seats four like the Brooks Counter Height Dining Room Table.

Our Calgary furniture store will have a variety of table sizes and shapes to choose from so that you can find the perfect one for your needs.

Think about the Future

When you are furniture shopping, it’s important to think about the future as well as the present. If you think you might entertain more in the future or have more family dining with you, it’s a good idea to buy a table that can accommodate those activities.

It’s always better to err on the side of too big rather than too small. That way, you won’t have to go furniture shopping again for a long time!
