A window-filled alcove in this beach house functions like a dining room with a casual table, two slipcovered end chairs, and a pillow-topped banquette. The built-in bench and wall of windows make this small space seem much larger. Two vintage light fixtures hung with nautical rope instead of standard chains illuminate the space.
If you don’t have the space for a formal dining room, look for opportunities to leverage another space to do double duty. This center entry hall also functions as the dining room. Built-in seating adds storage, and a narrow table ensures free traffic flow behind dining chairs.
They say “the devil is in the details” and people do notice a difference of an inch or so in seating. As you move through your interior space, it’s good to have a basic understanding of how measurement will make your space more useable. If you’ve ever been uncomfortable in your seat while trying to enjoy a meal, you know all too well the importance of table heights.
Dining room chairs typically measure 17” to 19” from floor to seat. The seat back height will vary by style but keep in mind that dining room chairs with arm rests need to fit underneath the table. In order to allow people to move comfortably around the perimeter of the table when others are seated, there needs to be at least 30” of space around the chairs when they are extended.
