Why are extending dining tables so popular in the UK?

Extending dining tables are amongst the most popular dining tables sold in the UK. From all the different types of dining tables that are sold, the extending ones come high up in the selling ranks!

So what’s the reason for our crazy love affair with these extremely diverse dining tables? Well, first and foremost it’s the way our lifestyles have changed in the modern age. Gone are the days when the dining table was just for the evening family meal, now it’s as diverse as our lives. This functional piece of furniture serves up many practical uses in our hectic lives. Wherever it’s for the kids’ homework, surfing the web or as a desk for the laptop, dining tables are a very important piece of home furniture.

Its popularity stems from the fact that these tables have now transitioned to become the work desk, the meeting area, the chill-out table and finally for the primary purpose as the dining place. With such multiple uses, our dining tables now need to be adept. Not only do we require them to look the part, but to be comfortable and spacious too. The extended dining table accomplishes this and more. It works just as well every day as when the occasion calls for accommodating extra guests.

Dining tables are the perfect tool to host the perfect party!

Wherever we are celebrating a graduation or an anniversary, or if it’s Christmas, Eid, Easter or Diwali; we love having friends and family over for special occasions to serve up a finger-licking, three-course meals. So what better way to do this than on a beautifully designed extended dining table with fancy cutlery and sleek dining chairs? Our extending dining tables help you entertain many guests at once. These large tables allow plenty of space for the extra cutlery and the comfort of the diners too.

Designs and styles of our extending dining tables

Manufacturers use an important variety of staple materials to build dining tables. Namely Wood, Glass, MDF, Marble and Metal. Glass dining tables are practical and give an impression of lightness and modernity. Wood can be nostalgic and traditional, and usually much more hard-wearing than most and up to withstanding scratches and knocks. MDF is generally cheaper and can be finished off with matt, lacquer, gloss and other paints; whilst marble and metal can be contemporary and luxurious.
