What is Standard Dining Room Table Height?

How tall should I make my dining room or kitchen table? 

Standard height for a dining table is between 29 and 31 inches.

Standard chair and bench seat height for dining room tables is 18-19 inches. Making your table standard height allows for maximum compatibility for a wide variety of chairs. 

Also to be considered when building a dining room table is the amount of space from the seat height to the bottom of the table apron. This amount of space will dictate how much leg room your customers will have while using the table. Design 59 inc recommends at least 10-12 inches of leg room at the discretion of you and your clients.
