Guests sitting around a typical dining room table are likely to feel more formal than those sitting in a standard counter or bar table. This simple difference in table height can lend itself to an ambience that is more intimate and relaxed. Kitchen counter height tables are great when you host small gatherings so that you can step away from the table to prep more food without seeming like you are walking away from the meal.
They say “the devil is in the details” and people do notice a difference of an inch or so in seating. As you move through your interior space, it’s good to have a basic understanding of how measurement will make your space more useable. If you’ve ever been uncomfortable in your seat while trying to enjoy a meal, you know all too well the importance of table heights.
Dining room chairs typically measure 17” to 19” from floor to seat. The seat back height will vary by style but keep in mind that dining room chairs with arm rests need to fit underneath the table. In order to allow people to move comfortably around the perimeter of the table when others are seated, there needs to be at least 30” of space around the chairs when they are extended.
Add storage to a small dining area with a built-in china cabinet. You’ll not only save floorspace, but you’ll also have the opportunity to integrate architectural details like decorative trimwork.
