Choosing a table shape will depend on your room and the desired seat amount. Some people prefer oval or circular dining table to sit in large groups, since the large circular tables can hinder access to food in between, although a lazy incorporated can be a great addition. You will need a minimum space of at least 60 cm (24 “) behind a chair when pushing, which is the minimum amount necessary for someone to pass, although it is always better than 75 cm (30”).
The circular dining table is ideal for small spaces that allow a better flow around the table, and more people can fit without corners, especially if the table has a pedestal base. In a square room, a round or square table creates the best visual balance, also allows a more intimate dinner atmosphere since all are at the same distance, facing each other. However, large square tables can hinder access to food.

The minimum depth to put a plate and cutlery is around 38 cm (without glass space) or 45 cm for a complete circular dining table setting with glasses. Ideally, add an additional 25-30 cm to place in serving dishes, although 15 cm is the minimum and sufficient if you move the glasses. This puts the ideal length at around 105 cm, although 100 cm is a very comfortable width.
