Why We Need Extending Dining Tables
Extending dining tables are a great way of encouraging the family to sit around the table in a sociable fashion in order to enjoy a meal together, rather than uncomfortably balancing a tray on front of the TV. Whether you need extending dining tables to seat 12 or contemporary extending dining tables to amplify the essence of modernity, there always one for everyone.
They provide more room to relax around and plenty of surface space on which to neatly arrange accompanying salad or vegetable bowls and condiments. The best part is they can be folded back neatly for everyday use without taking up too much space in the home. Whether wooden, glass-topped or even sculpted from concrete, family dining tables come in every budget range. And here’s some of our favourites right here:
Priced at just £479, these smart, chunky-looking Dorking 4 ft Extending Dining Tables are ideal if you’re planning on a rustic, country kitchen type look. Produced from solid oak and veneers with a hand-applied wax finish the table extends to up to 165 cm. It’s particularly suited for young families since the table’s rounded edges means there’s less opportunity for careering toddlers to hurt themselves.
