So what makes an Extendable Dining Table ‘Creative’? It’s all about how you use it – and by choosing a table that changes size, it gives you plenty of options from day to day.

Can I have an Extendable Dining Table in an Apartment?

When it comes to smaller areas, the key to creating a comfortable space is opting for Space-Saving Furniture… And an Extendable Dining Table is just that. On a daily basis, keep your table closed at its smallest size to allow more surrounding space, then simply extend it for gatherings with extra people. This allows you not to feel restricted by your home.

While most people tend to associate an Extension Table with having a large dining area, they are often most useful for smaller dining rooms… Because this is an occasional item, it can adapt as often as needed.

And if you’re lucky enough to have a formal Dining Room in addition to your daily meals area, why not consider using an extendable table for day to day so you can adjust the size as often or as little as you need? Our Dining Table is one of the most used items in the house and is known to be a central gathering point for family and friends, so it’s worth choosing a piece that will perfectly accommodate your evolving needs.


What type of Table is best for Small Spaces?

The quick answer (in our opinion) is an Extendable Dining Table. But, let’s break down the reasons why we say that…

Of course, a Round or Square Dining table is always well suited to smaller spaces – purely because of the symmetrical and compact nature of their design. Generally it helps make your space feel balanced and often these shapes are chosen in smaller sizes because they offer the most useable surface area (while taking up the smallest footprint). While we agree that a Round or Square Table is a great option, it’s also restricting for how many people can sit around it at any one time…

So why not consider a Round or Square table with the inclusion of an Extension mechanism? For daily use, keep your Extendable Table closed (to represent a round or square shape), and when required easily open into an Oval or Rectangular Table to allow more seats. This option is a winner in our opinion because you get to experience the benefits of a big and small table, any time you like.

Creating a Modern Dining Space

A Modern Dining Table means modern convenience… And what’s more convenient than the option of choice? By choosing to have an Extendable Dining Table as part of your home, it means you have the choice of what size you need for entertaining.

It also means you can re-design the look and feel of your space by reducing or enlarging the size of your Table. If you prefer having a more spacious feeling, then keeping your table closed will achieve this. Or, if you want to use your Dining Suite as a showcase piece, then leave it extended to highlight its size.
