How to Measure Your Round Table for the Perfect Tablecloth Size

When it comes to hosting a dinner party, presentation is key. A beautiful tablecloth can instantly transform your dining room, but finding the right size can be tricky. Here are some tips on how to measure your round table for the perfect tablecloth size.

Measuring the Diameter

The first step in finding the right tablecloth size is to measure the diameter of your round table. To do this, you’ll need a measuring tape and a pencil. Start by measuring from one side of the table to the other, and then double that number to get the diameter. Make sure you write down this measurement so you don’t forget it later.

Measuring for Drop Length

The next step is to measure for drop length. This is how much of the tablecloth will hang over the sides of your table. Most people opt for a drop length of 8-12 inches, but you can go as high as 18 inches if you want more coverage. To measure for drop length, simply add 8-18 inches (depending on your preference) to your diameter measurement from earlier.

Choosing Your Tablecloth

Now that you have both measurements, it’s time to choose your tablecloth. Most stores will list their sizes in terms of diameter and drop length, so make sure you have those numbers handy when shopping around. You should also keep in mind that most round tables require an oblong or rectangular tablecloth due to their shape. With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to find a beautiful tablecloth that fits your round table perfectly.
