Farmhouse Table Seating Guide

Farmhouse Dining Table Dimensional Guidelines

These are typical dimensions for our farmhouse dining tables and can vary slightly.  Farmhouse dining table design help is available at Cottage Home.   
Farmhouse Table Dimensions
The distance between the legs of a farmhouse dining table = Table Length minus 15″ from the length and Table Width minus 10″ from the width.  The bottom of the apron is normally 25″H from the floor.
Typical Chair Heights
 The distance between the top of a work surface and a chair or stool seat is typically 12″.  Chair and stool widths vary from 16″W to 25″W with an average of 20″W.  A minimum of 27″ to 30″ clearance from a wall and a minimum of 24″ additional floor coverage for a rug is required to pull out a side chair.

Farmhouse Dining Table Seating Capacities

The following diagrams provide guidelines for different size and shape farmhouse dining tables.  Diagrams are based on chairs that are 20″ wide.  The allowance between the chairs should be a minimum of 2″ (tight) to 6″ (roomy).  Seating arrangements labeled tight are for occasional use and typically involve some interference with the table legs.  Remember, we can make ANY size table!
