Dining Layouts

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.

Common Questions

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.

Circle | Round Table Sizes
Diagram of the various diameters available for Circle Tables with recommended dimensions and seats possible

Circular Dining Tables are space efficient tables designed with a variety of common diameters for specific seating arrangements from small two person tables up to larger twelve person designs. By removing corners, round tables have smaller footprints than square or rectangular tables but are ultimately less flexible because round tables cannot be connected to other tables easily. Small round tables for two start at a diameter of 2’6” | 76 cm and grow up to sizes for four to six people at of 3’-4’6” | 91-137 cm. Large circular tables for groups of 10-12 people have diameters between 7’-8’ | 213-244 cm.

Individual Dining Settings
Layout drawings with dimensions for minimal and optimum individual dining settings with people and tableware for scale

Individual dining place settings represent the standard amount of space required to accommodate a single diner. Split into Minimum and Optimum place settings, these dimensions account for the variety of dinnerware, tableware, cutlery, and glassware that a person might need during a meal. Each place setting includes a secondary shared zone at the center of the table that combines with adjacent place settings to provide enough room for collective serving dishes and platters.

Minimum individual place settings have an overall width of 24” | 61 cm, overall depth of 21” | 53.3 cm, and are split between a 16” | 40.6 cm place setting and a 5” | 12.7 cm shared zone. Optimum individual place settings have an overall width of 30” | 76.2 cm, overall depth of 27” | 68.6 cm, and are split between an 18” | 45.7 cm place setting and a 9” | 22.9 cm shared zone.
