Tablecloths & Covers Buying Guide

Any meal feels more festive when the table is set with cloth table coverings. Change the look of a bare table layer by layer and according to your taste or the formality of the gathering.

Types of Tablecloths & Covers

Types of Tablecloths & Covers

Like your wardrobe, each type of table covering has a different function. Think of a tablecloth as a versatile dress, table runners and place mats as separates, napkins as accessories, and napkin rings as -- what else? -- jewelry. When you put them all together, you and your table make a stronger impression.

Tablecloths

Tablecloths do more than protect your table from wear and tear. Invest in several, both formal and casual, to elevate get-togethers with family and friends. From snow-white damask to jewel-tone synthetic blends, there is a cloth for every occasion and dining space. Think of the tablecloth as the core of your design, and choose other elements to match or contrast with it.

Table Runners

Long, narrow runners usually bisect the length of the table, but they may be placed across it. Lay a runner over a tablecloth for formal meals or on its own to showcase a centerpiece and the table surface. If the runner extends over the table edges, its length should match that of the tablecloth.

Used with or without a tablecloth, place mats protect your table surface from heat and scratches. Place mats can assume roles of varying importance depending on the meal, the occasion, or your decorating style.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Let your lifestyle and entertaining habits dictate the type, size, fabric, color, and formality of your table linens.

Style

Think about the occasion and your guest list when choosing formal and matching or complementary and casual table coverings.

Finish & Material

Consider your room’s decor, your dinnerware and glassware, and the mix of table coverings to assemble an interesting and harmonious tablescape. Tablecloths, runners, napkins, and place mats come in linen, cotton, and synthetics such as polyester and microfiber.

Table Size & Shape

Measure your table’s top both with and without leaves. Add 8-18 inches to each measurement for drop, or the fabric that hangs below the table edge. Standard tablecloth sizes are: square, 52x52 inches; rectangular, 52x70 inches or 60x84 inches; oval, 60x102 inches, 60x120 inches, or 60x144 inches; and round, 70 inches or 90 inches in diameter. If you are between two sizes, buy the larger tablecloth.

Care

Decide how much time you can spend keeping your table coverings party-ready. Look for linens that are washable, heat-resistant, absorbent, and durable.
