How wide should a table base be?
Table Tops and Bases.
|SQUARE TABLES||Table Size||Base Size|
|30 x 30||22x22 or 17" Round|
|36 x 36||30x30 or 22" Round|
|42 x 42||36x36 or 30" Round|
|RECTANGULAR TABLES||Table Size||Base Size|
Considering this, how do you determine table base size?
Normally the base spread should be at least 1/3 of the table for singular bases. So the larger the table, the base spread must reach at least 1/3 of the table when one base is used. This is also why for longer tables it is recommended to use with T-style table bases, to provide the most support over the larger surface.
Also, how wide should a table be? Most rectangular tables are between 36" and 40" wide. A table that seats four should be about 48" long. To seat four to six people, look for a table that is at least 60" long. For six to eight guests, your table should be at least 78" long.
Keeping this in consideration, how wide do Table legs need to be?
Dining table legs are 29", which leaves about an inch for top thickness. If you're planning on a top thicker than one inch, you can shorten the 29" legs to maintain a finished height of 30". The apron boards that connect the table legs to form the base are generally about ¾" thick and 4" wide.
How much space is needed per person at a table?
A general guideline is to allow for 18 to 24 inches for every person at your table, but that measurement can flex up or down depending on your unique space. Tiny Tip: Allow for cozier seating with a round table (instead of rectangular) and bench seating (instead of chairs).
