Choose the Perfect Picnic Table Shape for Your Seating Needs
Picnic tables come in several different sizes and shapes including:
oval, and the traditional
rectangle. Allowing about 18" of linear space per person, you can expect
your average round or squared picnic table to seat eight people. Octagon tables usually refer to the table
top shape, and the seats are arranged in the same way as a squared picnic table, also seating eight people.
Unlike octagon tables, the seats of hexagon picnic tables follow the table top shape and typically seat six.
Oval and rectangular picnic tables can seat between 8 to 12 people depending on the length. Square, round,
hexagon, or octagon tables are easier to access and provide a more intimate seating arrangement.
Your personal tastes play a part in selecting your tables but there are other things to consider.
If you own a business or location that has frequent visitors, you should consider selecting tables of different
sizes to accommodate groups of varying numbers.
