If you have other furniture just next to the wall of your kitchen, then rather than taking the measurement from the wall to the furniture, measure the distance between the furniture and the table. Now, this distance has to be 40-45 inches.


Never overcrowd your kitchen table. If you have people sitting at the table, make sure that each one of them has about 2 feet of eating space. If not then you should reduce a seat or two from the table or purchase a bigger round kitchen table, only if there’s enough area in your kitchen.

– A 4 meter round table with legs seats 4
– A 5 meter round table with a pedestal base is ideal for 6 seats
