Choosing a Practical Dining Table

The importance of specially designed dining tables
In the modern age, dining tables are not only used as functional furnishings, but are a part of the interior design of the house. Although in almost every home there’s a dedicated dining space, this space is designed for an average sized table, for around 6 diners. This is one of the reasons why many prefer to order extendable tables that don’t take up much space when closed.

Choosing the right dining table
The decision can be hard, not only because of the large variety on the market, but also because people prefer a dining table that will serve them several years, and not just something trendy, like other furniture. When choosing a dining table two things need to be considered: comfort and design. Practical dining tables must answer both questions – they must be able to be opened when needed, thus solving the hosting problem. They also need to be comfortable to all seated diners.

Don’t forget what you need the dining table for
In many homes, the dining table is more of an art piece than a functioning table to eat on. People place a fancy tablecloth, vase and other pieces and forget that it’s actually designed for everyday use. People tend to eat in the kitchen during the week and only eat at the dining table on the weekends. That habit can be changed by having the dining table always set for a meal, with utensils and a tablecloth.

No need to limit the amount of guests with a practical dining table
One of the most important subjects to take into account when ordering an extending dining table is the amount of diners able to sit around the table when extended. These days, dining tables capable of extending up to 4 times their original length can be ordered. When closed, the table does not take up much space, and is capable of seating 4-6 diners, but when open, 30 diners can be hosted around the table. A perfect solution for anyone with space constraints that loves hosting the entire family.
