MEASUREMENT TIPS

Table program size guidelines

  • Table width must be equal to or greater than depth
  • Not all height and width combinations are available due to stability issues
  • Larger stone tops may require multiple pieces

General Tips

  • When calculating the measurements for your custom table, make sure to consider any doorway, stairs or hallways your table may need to maneuver through
  • All overall height measurements include the top

Dining tables

  • The standard recommended height for a dining table is 29"
  • The general rule of thumb is to allow for 24 inches per person around your table
  • Allow for space so chairs can be easily pulled out from the edge of the table. Between 18-24 inches is the norm, though traffic paths in your room may require even more space.
  • The placement of the legs may affect chair placement, giving you more or less room along a side
  • The width and height of your dining chairs—and if your chairs have arms—may affect how many fit around the table and how far they can be pushed in when not in use

Counters

  • The standard recommended height for a counter table is 36" and 42" for a bar table.
  • Choose a height that works not only for standing tasks, but for any seating you may require: generally, counter stools have a 24- to 26-inch seat height, while bar stools have a 31-inch seat height

Accent tables

  • The standard recommended height for a end table is 22" - 30"
  • The standard recommended height for a cocktail table is 13" - 17"
  • Remember to allow for at least 18 inches between the cocktail table and sofa for easy traffic flow
  • End tables should be at or below the arm height of sofas and chairs to avoid awkward reaching
  • Console tables placed behind a sofa should be at or just below the height of the back of the sofa
