Dining room. Friday , September 22nd , 2017 - 17:31:32 PM
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.
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.
Growing up in the land of Southern Hospitality, I thought I would never in my life propose the idea of repurposing the dining room. Having an eat-in kitchen, I like many others can count on two hands the number of times we use the dining room each year. Why deem a room necessary when its only useful 10 days out of 365.
