Long Ethan Dining Table for Chic and Simple Look
Allow each guest a minimum of 24 inches of table surface. Even better, allow up to 30 inches for extra elbow room. For rectangular tables, be sure to add an extra 12 inches at each end for those seated at the head and food of the table. Most dining tables are about 30 inches high. Chair height is generally 18 inches (from the floor to the seat). This allows for comfortable lap and leg room. A general rule of thumb is to allow 12 inches between the seat of your chair and your tabletop. Rectangular guidelines generally work for oval tables, as well. Round guidelines can be used for square tables.
