With so many designs, sizes, and types available, it cannot be easy to decide which dining table to buy or not. So to simplify your life, we have put together a guide on how to choose the right dining table.

Fix the guy

The number one rule when buying a dining set is to stick to type, so you know how much space your dining set will take up. The size of the room and the number of family members should be taken into account when deciding on the type of dining set.

Choose the right material.

When choosing the right dining set, you need to balance price, ease of care, and your personal style. You don’t want to regret buying a table that doesn’t fit in your home. Therefore, it is necessary to choose a suitable material.

wooden dining table

Dining tables made from wood (solid or hardwood) are very strong and durable. They often add dignity and charm to any room. Choose from a variety of versatile and sustainable wooden dining tables.

marble dining table

A dining table made of marble is not only beautiful to look at but also complements the décor of any home. Marble sets are durable and always in style. Designed for contemporary, traditional, and modern styles, marble dining sets are available in a variety of colors.

glass dining table

The transparency of the glass dining set makes the room appear larger than usual. Glass dining sets are versatile and fit into any space. Glass dining tables are surprisingly easy to care for and keep clean.

In durian furniture, you can find all this.

Always choose smart furniture.

The dining room table is the place in the house where everyone gathers to eat and have deep conversations. To keep these conversations intimate, you need to choose a smart dining table that offers enough privacy and provides just the right amount of space.

square dining table

If the room you plan to place your dining table in is square, you should choose a square dining table because a square set helps maintain balance and proportions in a symmetrical room, seating 4 or 8 people. That means that each person is equidistant from the other.

round dining table

A circular dining table is ideal for small dining rooms. The circular shape of the dining set creates a warm, cozy and comfortable atmosphere in the dining room. Also, if you have kids, the ball is on the court with the round table.

choose style

Finally, compare modern, contemporary, or other styles of dining tables when choosing a style for your dining set. A modern dining table brings progress and rhythm to your home, while a contemporary dining table can be easily adjusted to fit the dimensions of your room.

how to qualify your space

First, measure the length and width of the space. Do not forget to consider other furniture that affects the area.

Then subtract 180 cm (90 cm from each side) from both measurements.

This will give you the maximum dimensions of the table.

Dining table size


From floor to table, all Crescent Fifty One dining tables have a height of 750mm (29 inches). The standard industry height is 750-800mm.

Space per person:

Table sizes are based on the ideal minimum space per person of 50cm x 40cm. This is how you get the most value for space and money. However, if your table is likely to be the center of your home and you want more space to move around, we recommend choosing a larger size to enjoy your meal in the most comfortable way.

For example, if you have a family of four who use this table for most of their meals but want to invite guests over for dinner from time to time, the 1600x800mm 6-seater table is a perfect choice.

Length and width:

Choosing the right size for your table depends on how you plan to use it. If it’s a central part of your home that your family uses every day, choosing the largest size that can accommodate the space can help your lifestyle. On the other hand, if the table is used only occasionally for dinner parties, we recommend choosing a smaller table size so that you can take advantage of the extra space in your room.

The table is designed to be flexible in terms of seating functionality. The diagrams below show how the table can be used with slightly different seating arrangements to suit the size of the family and guests.

chair and bench


For a more comfortable experience, the seats attached to the table should be approximately 300mm lower than the tabletop. Our bench is exactly that at 450mm high.


We recommend leaving a space of 90 cm around the table to allow the chairs to slide in and out smoothly.


Dining table sizes are based on at least 50 cm of surface area per person. It is recommended to choose a chair with a width of 50 cm or less. If you choose a larger table and plan to have fewer people sitting around it, you may be able to choose wider chairs.

A popular option used by many clients is to place benches on one side of the table and chairs on the other. This is also suitable for small spaces. When the bench is not in use, it can be stored underneath so that you can enjoy it in a larger space. You can also push the table against the wall and lower the benches to create more space and bring them out only when you have more guests.

free space

We recommend leaving 90 cm of space around the table. This allows easy and comfortable access without obstructing the dining area.
