HOW DO YOU KNOW YOUR DINING ROOM FURNITURE WILL FIT?
Before you begin your search for your new dining room furniture, you’ll need to work out how much space you have. Measure carefully to ensure that the table and chairs you choose will fit comfortably in the area you have and leave ample space for manoeuvring in and out, particularly if your set up is close to a wall. Allow around 75cm around each side of the table for a chair and enough space for you to manoeuvre yourself into position. You can find the measurements for all our dining furniture on the individual product pages.
Your measurements will determine whether you have space for a large dining table or if you are better off investing in a small dining set or an extendable dining table.
A larger space is ideal for a statement dining table to get all the guests talking (for all the right reasons). To keep things flexible, try one of our 4 to 8 seat dining tables that can be extended to fill a space or retracted for smaller groups. Another bonus is that the extension leaves for all of our extending tables are stored right inside the dining table, so they’re super easy and functional.
For smaller rooms it’s worth considering a round dining table as they are probably the easiest shape to work with in a small space. They work especially well in awkward areas where chairs can be arranged around them to utilise angular corners. Think about glass topped dining tables as an option to consider. Being see-through, they are canny illusionists in creating the feeling of space when, in reality, it’s in limited supply.
The leg design can work to your advantage too. Be canny in your choice and you can free up floor space to trick the eye into creating ‘space’. Picking something without obstructive legs can allow you to seat more bums at the table without it feeling overcrowded. Look to corner-legged tables or trestle-legged designs which work particularly well with bench seating.
