Why We Love Extending Dining Tables

Extending Dining tables are extremely practical and a great option for those lacking space. Investing in an extendable table will ensure you always have additional seating ready when unexpected dinner guests arrive.

Folding tables with hidden leaves are an excellent clutter-free option for your dining area.

Which extending table is right for you?

Wood Type and Finish

Extending tables come in many styles so it’s advisable you decide on the wood type and finish you would like before commencing your search, whether it be Pine, Oak or Painted. Oak dining tables are a great choice due to the wood’s quality and durability. Pine dining tables are a good budget choice but ensure that you always protect the wood with place mats and coasters as the wood can be dented easily. If you would like a painted table, there are endless options available in shades of grey, cream and white.

Wood Type


You can find small and large extendable dining tables on the market.  A small table usually extends up to 160cm and large tables can extend up to 310cm. Measure and evaluate your dining space before making your final decision to avoid having to make any returns.

If you are tight on space, square and rectangular styles will be the best option for you.
