How Many People do you Need to Seat at the Table?

The size of your dining room set depends on how many people live in your house and how often you plan to entertain guests. How many children do you have? Do you enjoy inviting people over often for dinner parties? How many people usually come to visit during the holidays? Choose a dining room set that seats everyone. Your dining room set serves as the centerpiece of every gathering, so remember to think about every occasion before buying.

And if you're looking for something that can accommodate more seating instantly, we carry tables with 18" and 20" leaf inserts.

What Style of Table Should I Buy?

Every dining room set needs to match the theme of the dining room. Whether it's more formal, casual, or somewhere in-between, the style of your dining room should influence what kind of dining room table and chairs to buy. Feel free to mix things up too to keep your room interesting.

Also, consider the overall style of your home. Will this set fit in with the rest of your home? How will you feel about the set 10 years from now? Bassett Furniture offers a wide selection of dining room sets so you can find the perfect match. From rustic to oak to glass, you're sure to find the best one for your home. If you need help, you can also reach out to one of our design specialists.

Common Dining Room & Kitchen Table Shapes

Which table shape you need depends on many factors including the number of seats needed, the size of your space, and the aesthetic of your space. No matter your needs, we have a range of popular dining room table shapes that will fit any style or size requirement.

We carry a variety of kitchen & dining room tables in a range of shapes including:

Kitchen & Dining Table Set Materials

A kitchen table or dining room set will give off a distinctly different look and feel depending on the material you pick. If you're going for something more modern you may pick copper or glass, but if you're going for something more rustic then leather or solid hardwood would be your go-to.

What Size Should my Dining Room Set be?

One of the biggest mistakes people make when buying dining room furniture is getting the wrong size. Always measure the width and length of the room before looking for a set. Also, pay close attention to the size of the table and chairs. Ideally, you need around three feet of space on all sides of the table. That way, people can walk around without bumping into tables and chairs. If you have table leaves, use the largest size the table can be with chairs as a reference.

Bassett Furniture can help you choose the right site size dining table for your room. Visit one of our storerooms to get a feel for your dining room.

Standard Kitchen & Dining Room Table Heights

While you will find dining room tables in a wide variety of heights, there are some standards you need to consider. For the table to be functional, there needs to be enough room for people's legs between the table and the chairs you'll be getting. Usually, you'll see tables with a height of 25" to 30". However, the height you should buy all depends on the height chairs you'll be using.

Counter-Height Dining Room & Kitchen Tables

A counter-height table usually has a dual purpose of being both an informal eating area as well as a kitchen countertop. These tables usually run 35" or taller. These tables are a great choice when you want to separate a dining or living space from an open kitchen.

Standard Round Kitchen & Dining Room Table Sizes

A round kitchen or dining room table creates a family atmosphere and creates conversation since everyone is facing each other. However, due to the shape, a round table isn't always the best if you need to seat lots of guests.

0 - 4 Guests: 36" to 44" diameter
4 - 6 Guests: 44" to 54" diameter
6 - 8 Guests: 54" to 72" diameter

Standard Oval Kitchen & Dining Room Table Sizes

An oval table is great to get both the smooth style of a round table and the ability to seat more people for its size.

4 - 6 Guests: 36" Diameter & 55" Length
6 - 8 Guests: 36" Diameter & 72" Length
8 - 10 Guests: 36" Diameter & 84" Length

Standard Square Kitchen & Dining Room Table Sizes

One of the most standard table sizes, and for good reason. A square table can provide many spots for seating, but also can slide flush next to a wall when it's not in full-use.

Standard Rectangle Kitchen & Dining Room Table Sizes

The most common of all table sizes. A rectangular table is great for large gatherings, and depending on its width it can easily be placed in a way to maximize foot-traffic.

0 - 4 Seats: 36" Wide & 48" Long
4 - 6 Seats: 36" Wide & 60" Long
6 - 8 Seats: 36" Wide & 78" Long
