When you choose a new oilcloth tablecloth, it’s really important to get the perfect fit. That way your wipeable tablecloth will look good in your kitchen or dining room for a long, long time.
When you measure your table for an oilcloth tablecloth, be sure to allow for an overhang so that you get a nice drape over the edges and corners. Don’t make the mistake of using your exact table measurements. You’ll need to add at least 40cm to the width and length in order to have an overhang of 20cm on each side. Take a look at our straight-forward instructions on measuring your table.
If you have a round table you can still get a beautiful fit from your Simply Oilcloth tablecloth. Because our oilcloth tablecloths are cut to order, we can provide almost any shape – from round tablecloths to squares, rectangles and even ovals. Take a look at the Custom Cut for Round Tables section on our website – there are lots of wonderful designs to choose from.
If you have a large kitchen or dining table it can be difficult to get tablecloths to fit. While most oilcloth tablecloths are around 135cm wide, here at Simply Oilcloth we also stock a range of wider width tablecloths which are available up to 175cm wide. Take a look at the Widest Widths section on our website where it’s super easy to find your perfect oilcloth. Dainty Dotty oilcloth tablecloth is one of our most popular wider width designs and it’s available in 4 shades – rose, charcoal, fern and slate.
If you plan to use your oilcloth tablecloth on a patio table, you may like to consider ordering it with a parasol hole. We can cut a plain parasol hole for you when you order your wipeable tablecloth, or we can add a silver or brass-effect trim. There are two parasol hole sizes available – 39mm or 64mm. To order your oilcloth tablecloth with a parasol hole, simply choose that option at the checkout.
You can also purchase tablecloth clips which keep your wipeable tablecloth in place whenever it’s used outdoors.
