The size of most modern apartments doesn`t allow you to accommodate a big and spacious dining room , so choosing a compact and functional dining table becomes quite an issue. Fortunately, modern manufacturers offer an impressive variety of extending dining tables for compact spaces so that you can easily turn your kitchen, your living room or study into a cozy and elegant dining area. Extending tables vary in terms of assembly and constructions, so here`s a list of options to help you choose the right solution for your premises:
Extending table with inserts
The functional area of such a table is expanded due to additional leafs, usually stored underneath the tabletop, or, in some cases, separately, in a storage room. Thus, a dining table for 6 can be turned into a dining table for 8 – to accommodate your friends or members of extended family.
Wing dining tables
Unlike extending tables with inserts, wing dining tables feature extension leafs which fold down on the sides and are lifted up when you need additional seating place. In some cases, extending leafs may have oval shape, which allows them to completely change the geometry of the entire table.
Apart from the type of extension, dining tables for compact spaces differ according to their shape and construction material. Though it may seem that an extending dining table should have a rectangular or square shape, this is not exactly the case. There are round table constructions, which can be expanded due to additional leafs and acquire an oval shape, also, as mentioned above, a rectangular table may be transformed into an oval one by means of wing extension. Oval and round tables look impressive and stylish; however, we would advise that you stick to rectangular shape, if you have a large family.
As to construction materials, there are three main options:
Wooden dining tables for compact spaces are the best choice if you are looking for a highly reliable and durable piece of furniture that will serve you and your family for years, possibly decades. Keep in mind that in terms of pricing solid wood is more expensive than reclaimed wood; also, make sure that wooden dining table are easily integrated into your main interior theme. Such tables are best suitable for classic and county style interiors.
Extending tables made from high quality MDF board covered with layers of glossy lacquer are highly popular and fashionable solutions for modern interiors. These tables are integrated seamlessly into contemporary interiors (typical for most modern flats) and are also less pricey than their wooden counterparts. Just make sure the high-gloss dining table you choose has proper assembly and build quality to ensure its long service period and safety.
There`s nothing to show off your exquisite taste and a sense of style like an extending dining table made from tempered glass. Such dining tables are great for compact spaces as their transparency creates added space effect, moreover, due to special processing, such dining tables are extremely durable and completely safe.
