Sara Castell. Dining room. September 24th , 2017.
The most comfortable seat height for a dining chair is when there is 10 to 12 inches between the top of the seat and the top of the dining table. If your chair is 18 to 20 inches from the floor to the top of the seat, it will fit well under a standard table.
Heres the idea I love the most. As a kid, I remember taking private dance lessons at my teachers home. At that time I knew nothing about supplemental income. But now I see that her dining room created earning potential in her home. This ballet barre is in a spare bedroom, but the idea applies. Could there be money hidden in your dining room.
Many dining chair backs have a rake, also known as a slope. As on the metal chairs shown here, this slant can be from 5 to 8 degrees from the top. It stops people from sliding off when they get too relaxed.
Just as with a rectangular or square table, measure your space and apply the same chair measurements. Allow 26 inches per person for elbow room on a three- to six-seater and 24 inches for six or more.
The rectangular dining table. Rectangular tables are the most popular shape for dining. Consider the length of table that your room can comfortably fit. Generally, 36 inches between the edge of the table and each wall or other piece of furniture will allow for chairs to be pulled out with ease.
