What is the best width for a dining table?

1 Answer
The best width for a dining table may vary upon your needs. Typically, the width of a dining table may range from approximately 36 to 40 inches, and you want to make sure you allow for approximately three feet of walking space around the table in your dining room so that guests can move freely.
