Spacing Consideration

14 sq.ft.per person for spacious dining.
12 sq.ft.per person for cafeteria or restaurant.
10 sq.ft.per person for banquet, institutional or close seating.
Allow 18" for person seating from edge of table to back of chair.
Diagonal seating saves floor space. Deuce tables and wall spacing save the most space.
Allow 42" between squared tables for chairs back to back - leaves 6" to push out.
Allow 60" between squared tables for chairs back to back - leaves 26" service aisle .
Allow 24" between corners of diagonal table for customer access - no aisle.
Allow 30" between corners of diagonal tables for customer access - narrow aisle.
Note: Where space is limited, booths require only 8 sq.ft.per person, including aisle allowance.
