What to think about when you are planning on buying an extending dining table:

A dining table is a place where your whole family comes together. You will join there for meals, even if just every now and then, which means that it is a place that is all about being social, spending quality time together and simply enjoying the beauty of being a family.

It is also a place where you will often entertain guests, hold parties and even just sit and do homework or read the paper. When you consider all of these things, it is easy to see why a dining room table is a key piece of furniture to have in your home.

Choose a dining table that is made from a strong material

If you want to make sure that your dining table can stand the test of time, then you are going to want to choose one that is made from a durable material. This includes walnut, oak and mahogany. Of course, if you do want a more cost-effective option then you could look at MDF and plywood options, these are still durable but they are not as strong as hardwood tables.


Never forget the chairs:

Along with the dining table, you also need to think about the chairs too. After all, these are what you are going to be sitting on, sometimes for a reasonably long period of time. They need to be stylish, but they also need to be comfortable too. As you can see, there are plenty of things to think about when it comes to choosing a dining table for your dining room. Take your time and really consider what you need and in the long-term you will have the very best addition to the space.


Although never discount glass

It makes sense that wooden dining tables are going to be strong and durable. However, you should never discount a glass topped dining table. These are strong, however, they also have the added benefit of being a reflective surface, which means if you are concerned that your dining room is on the small side, that this can help to open it up.


As well as the shape

Another important consideration that you need to keep in mind when you are planning on buying a dining room table is the shape that is going to work best in your home. In the most part, a rectangle dining room table is the best option, however, you might also want to consider an oval shape table or a round table. Modern extendable dining tables are often round in shape to allow maximum arm room for your guests.

Just one more thing... think about how big you need it to be. One of the most important things that you need to keep in mind when buying a dining room table is how many people you need to be able to sit around it on a regular basis. This will change the size of the table that you choose. Many people decide to buy an extending dining table, as this means that they can keep it smaller on an everyday basis, then extend it and accommodate more people when you need to.

Large extending dining tables to seat 8 or more:

Whilst you might not have a family that is 8, 10 or 12 people strong, that doesn't mean that there are not going to be times when you have that many people around your dining room table. It could be a special occasion such as Christmas, or perhaps just when the kids have people over for dinner.

Whatever the reason, if you find that your dining table simply isn't big enough, then you might want to take a look at buying a large extending dining table. These are the size of a normal dining room table most of the time, however, they have the ability to extend to be able to fit between 8, 10 or 12 people.

How to care for your dining room table:

A dining table is a piece of furniture that is going to be used frequently, which means that it can often fall victim to wear and tear. It can be expensive to replace a dining table, which means that you are going to want to do your best to look after it as best that you can.

To help you to make the most of your table, we have put together our quick guide on the best things to do to ensure that you take good care of it.

Avoid placing it in direct sunlight:

It might feel nice to sit in the sunshine and enjoy it warming you up, however, placing it in direct sunlight can take its toll on the table. UV rays can fade a wooden dining table, which will stop it looking its best and leave it looking old and weathered instead.


Dust it on a regular basis:

Any piece of furniture in your home is going to get dusty over time. This means that one important task that you should make time for is dusting your dining table. You also need to make sure that you are careful when you do this, you want to remove the dust of course, but you also want to minimise the risk of scratching the table.


Try not to use silicone products:

You are likely going to need to remove stains and dirt from the top of your table, but when you do this you need to be careful. You should avoid cleaning products that contain silicone, as this can lead to a build-up on the surface of a wooden dining table. This will give the table a sheen, almost like plastic and it may even feel sticky if you touch it.


Final thoughts:

It is important that you take care of your dining table, so, whether it is being careful with the products that you use, planning to regularly dust it or even just making sure that it is out of the sunshine, all of these things will help the table to last as long as possible.
