How to measure
A diner will need 60cm length on a dining table.
For example if you want to seat 8 guests at a rectangle dining table
3 x 60cm per person =180cm long plus 60 for the person at the end of the table = 240cm long or to be generous 270cm.
Be aware of variables such as the position of table legs, the size of dining chairs etc. We like to allow a metre around the dining table for comfortable pull back of chairs and passing traffic.
