Table Spacing FAQS

 

 

Minimum Space Between Rows of Rectangle Tables

The picture to the right illustrates the minimum spacing needed for rows of tables when a service aisle is not needed. 52" from table to table. 18" is allowed for each chair, and 16" is the minimum in between chairs.

 

 

Spacing Rectangle Tables Incorporating a Service Aisle

For the rows you would like to incorporate a service aisle, the space needed in between rows is 66". This is 2 x 18" for the chairs, and 30" for the service aisle. The picture to the right illustrates this.

 

 

Diagonal Restaurant Layout with Square Tables

For diagonal style square restaurant table setup, you should leave a minimum of 24" in between corners of the tables. The picture to the right illustrates this.

 

 

Space Between the Wall

You should allow a minimum of 48" between the wall, and the tables along the wall. 18" from the table to the back of the seat, and 30" from the back of the seat to the wall.

 

 

Space Between Large Round Tables

For banquet style setup using large round tables you should leave a space of 60" minimum. This is 2 x 18" for the seats, and 24" room in between the chairs. The picture to the right illustrates this.

 

 

Incorporating Large Rounds into Your Restaurant Layout

If you need to incorporate large round restaurant tables into your layout, its best to place them in the corner like the illustration to the right. This saves the most space.

 

 

Dining table and chair space allowance

Barb Ev

My dining room is 9 foot 6 inches wide. I want to have a 16-inch deep cabinet built along one wall, which would reduce the wideth of the room to about 8 feet. Do I have room for a dining table and 6 or 8 chairs and still allow room for people to get by and move around the table. I don't want it to feel cramped!
Thanks!
