Dining layouts are designed to better understand the spatial requirements and relationships between the human body and the varied communal rituals of dining. Concerned primarily with size of tables based on individual place settings, user accommodations, and the clearances around tables for service and movement, dining layouts attempt to make sense of the many simultaneous conditions of dining in order to propose spatial recommendations for quality dining experiences.

How much space should be between a table and a wall?

Clearances of at least 36” | 91.4 cm should be provided from the table edge to a wall or other objects near the table. A clearance of 48” | 122 cm is recommended for maximum flexibility and movement.

How much space should be allowed between a dining chair and table?

A depth of 18” | 46 cm for the movement and use of dining chairs should be provided around dining tables.

Are round tables more space efficient than square tables?

Round tables are more space efficient than square or rectangular tables because their lack of corners results in a smaller footprint.
