Need Help Sizing Your Tablecloths?

Picking the right tablecloth color or pattern can be a daunting task. There seem to be so many options for someone looking to liven up their dining area. Do I want a bright and colorful look? Maybe something more muted and neutral? Making those decisions seems like a breeze for most people once they realize they have to choose the right tablecloth size. You don't have to recall your high school geometry class to accurately size your tablecloths. Sizing your tablecloths is easy!
  • It's important to know the size of your tabletops because that's the biggest factor in accurately sizing your tablecloths.
  • Once you've got your tabletop measurements it's time to decide how long you want the tablecloth "drop" to be. The drop is the length of tablecloth that's going to hang over each side of your table. This can be tricky because everyone's opinion differs but a safe drop length is between 8 and 12 inches on each side. If you're going for a more formal look the drop length should increase to 29 inches, assuming your table height is a standard 30 inches.
  • It's also a good idea to factor in a few more inches because some tablecloths have a tendency to shrink after they're washed.

    I have a dining room table which measures 60" x 96". Based on your above info, I think the tablecloth should measure 84" x 120". Is this the correct size and if so, where can I find this size? I've looked online and can't find any.
    Thanks,
    Jenny
