Place Setting Clearances
The first step to finding the ideal measurements for a Dining Room Layout begins with the minimum clearances required for each place setting or person at the table. Each place setting needs to have at least 24 inches, which gives enough elbow room, depth when seated and 20 inches of leg room underneath the table. For each person seated at the end of the table, allow at least 12 to 14 inches overhang to accommodate the table legs.
