To calculate the space needed for 6-foot round tables you must know the size of the objects being placed in the room around it, the number of inward opening doors, and the standard measurements used to ensure a comfortable amount of personal space when seating a guest. The diameter of the table is used as if it were the length and width measurements of a square table to simplify your calculations.
Things You'll Need
- Tape measure
- Pen and paper
Place any serving or working stations or tables in the same room where the 6-foot round table will be. Put the work stations where they will be when the table is in use.
Stand open any door that opens into the room so it is perpendicular to the wall. In other words, prop the door open so it is taking up as much space as possible.
Measure the width and length of the room. Measure from the door edge or work station edge to the opposite wall, station or edge. Write down the measurements in inches.
Add 64 inches to the total diameter of the 6-foot round table. Convert the 6 feet to inches (6x12=72) and then add 64 (72+64=136). The 64-inch addition includes 32 inches of space for each person on each side of the table at its widest point; 32 inches comfortably allows a person to get up from the table.
Decide if the table will fit in the length and width of the available area by subtracting the diameter-plus-space-needed amount (136 inches) from the measurement for the length and width of the room (from wall to wall, or object to object).
