Measuring Different Size Tables for Table Skirting


Welcome to our comprehensive guide on how to measure your tables for the perfect table skirting fit! Table skirting can transform your event or space from basic to elegant, but getting the right size is crucial for that perfect look.

This guide will walk you through the steps for measuring tables of various shapes and sizes, ensuring that your table skirting is just right for your display and event needs.

Understanding Table Skirting:

Table skirting is a fabric panel that goes around the sides of a table. It's often used in events, conferences, weddings, and other formal settings to add a touch of elegance and hide the table legs and any items stored underneath.

Tools Needed:

  • Measuring Tape
  • Notepad and Pen (for recording measurements)

Measuring Your Table:

Determine the Shape of Your Table: Tables typically come in round, rectangular, or square shapes. Identifying your table shape is the first step in getting accurate measurements.

Measure the Table Length (for Rectangular and Square Tables): Measure from one end to the other to get the length. For round tables, you'll measure the diameter instead.

Measure the Table Width (for Rectangular and Square Tables): Measure from one side to the other to find the width.

Measure the Table Height: This is important for determining how much fabric you'll need to reach the floor. Measure from the top of the table to the ground.

Calculate the Perimeter (for Rectangular and Square Tables): Add together the lengths of all four sides. For round tables, multiply the diameter by π (pi, approximately 3.14159).

Choosing the Right Skirt Length:

Floor-Length: For a formal, elegant look, choose a skirt that reaches the floor. Subtract 1-2 inches to avoid dragging.

Mid-Length: For a casual look, a skirt that falls midway to the floor might be your choice.

Determining Skirt Quantity:

Full Coverage: To completely encircle your table, ensure the total skirting length matches the table's perimeter.

Partial Coverage: For just front and sides coverage, adjust your skirting length accordingly.


Additional Tips:

Account for Drapery: If you want a pleated or ruffled look, remember to get more fabric to account for the gathers.

Velcro or Clips: Decide how you'll attach your skirt to the table. Velcro and clips are common options.

Fabric Type: Consider the event and choose a fabric that suits the occasion. Polyester is durable and easy to clean, while satin adds a luxurious touch.


Measuring your table correctly is the key to getting table skirting that enhances your space's aesthetic. Whether it's for a trade show, school display or presentation, wedding, a conference, or a an award ceremony, the right skirting can make all the difference.

Remember to double-check your measurements and consider the style of drapery you prefer. With this guide, you're now ready to choose the perfect table skirting for your event!
