The table includes many names and different uses :
- Low table
- Dinner table

What makes all these tables different? What is their particularity? We will all explain to you !
LET'S START WITH DEFINITIONS
- Low table : it is low enough to be accessed while seated and is intended to be placed in a living room
- Dinner table : Table with chairs on which meals are generally served. It accommodates between 6 to 8 guests
- High table : table where meals are taken but at a higher height. Generally preferred to save space in a room, as chairs are replaced by stools and slide under them
- Standing table: table that allows you to lean on and that does not require a seat, it is possible to eat pleasantly while standing
It's basically a question of seating between all these tables. Not all stools and chairs are suitable for all tables. We detail together the differences more precisely.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COFFEE AND VERY LOW TABLE
Pour la coffee table, it does not merge so much with another. But even within this category, there are differences in heights :
- 25/30 cm : very low table
- 30/45 : regular coffee table
- 45 et + high coffee table
It is important to stick to these habits. Do you like to eat on your coffee table? Go on a standard or high model. Do you like the design side of coffee tables? The very low table is for you! No particular habit? Stay on the standard coffee table. Practical for putting down your glass, balancing in terms of height in relation to the sofa, it's a safe bet !
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COFFEE AND VERY LOW TABLE
What opposes them mainly :
THE DINING TABLE : the finished height is 75 cm. Generally, these are chairs around.
THE HIGH TABLE : the finished height is 95 cm. It is more commonly accompanied by stools.
Why prefer one over the other? It is above all a question of space. In a large room, there will be no problem integrating a beautiful family table with more or less wide chairs and with a more or less deep seat. For the dining table, the bench is also an option for sitting, if you want to know more about the right height, we share all our tips with you here
In a smaller space where every square meter counts, the high table is more appreciable because the seats, the stools slide easily underneath.
The high table promotes optimized management of your space since it is less bulky than a traditional dining table.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HIGH TABLE AND STAND-UP TABLE
The biggest difference is in the seat. The high table is accompanied by a stool, the standing table is not, it is a space to gather around a table without sitting down. It is very often used in receptions, company halls or reception halls..
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BAR AND STAND UP EAT
If you follow, you understood that the height is the same, about 115 cm finished height, that is to say leg + top. The difference here is in the use itself. One bar depends on another element, it can be made as an extension of a storage unit or against a wall. It is complemented by very high stools of about 80 cm in height.
The eat standing is more generally a fairly small and independent table, that is to say which does not depend on a wall or on a piece of furniture and there is no seat around it. This table is a meeting place where it is possible to put a drink, snack, flyer.
SUMMARY OF TABLE HEIGHTS VS CHAIR HEIGHTS
As you have understood, there are differences between all these tables and each must have specific seats. There is table height and seat height in a table design. Because if your guests are not comfortable, it makes the whole thing uncomfortable for everyone.
For a good seat, the standard requires a difference of 25 to 30 cm between the height of the seat and the height of the table.
AND THE ISLAND IN ALL THIS?
The island is special because the standard dimensions are made according to trends. The height of the kitchens of our parents and grandparents is not the same as the current kitchens. In addition, when you imagine your kitchen, it is generally tailor-made right down to the height. So no standard height to recommend, neither in furniture nor in foot. On the other hand, La Fabrique adapts and offers you custom-made feet for kitchen island with the possibility of selecting the height to the nearest centimeter.
You now have the correct foot height! Now comes the question of the right size for the tray, we share some standard here.
