In Singapore homes where floor space is often limited, homeowners are naturally keen on space-saving solutions. For those who love entertaining guests over dinner parties, but don’t have the real estate to have a large dining table that seats 8, 10 or even 12 people, an extendable dining table is exactly what you need.
An expandable dining table will help you maximise your available dining room space, and they come in a variety of designs and forms – such as the standard rectangular, oval, square and round ones. Perfect for dining, socialising and entertaining.
When your all of your guests have left, all you would need to do is collapse it and voila – more floor space in your dining room again in mere seconds. Here are the three main amazing benefits of having an expandable dining table in your home.
amazing BENEFITS OF AN EXtenDABLE DINing table
Space-saving: This is the main reason that homeowners purchase dining tables that can be expanded. By optimising the available space, you could truly make the most of your dining area. This solution is particularly great for homes in Singapore as homeowners here are quite limited in this aspect.
With different customisations available that can be tailored to your needs, waiting out there is the ideal dining table that suits your lifestyle and your home’s interior design theme. For example, you could opt for a solid oak wood dining table that seats 4 people when not extended, and after the table expansion, it seats 12 people. Depending on your available space and the amount of guests you usually invite over, choose a dining table that best suits your needs.
Customisable designs and materials: When you have guests over and you extend your dining table right before seating them, it’s really quite a show in itself. It’s likely that at least a couple of your guests would go “ooh’’ and ‘’ahh’’ during the transformation.
Depending on the design theme of your home, there are numerous materials that you could choose for your table – such as solid wood, a combination of marble and wood, glass, granite or even quartz. But we daresay you could never go wrong with a timeless, yet gorgeous, natural wood dining table that provides durability, such as the SM30 extendable dining table by Skovby.
Easier to move around: Extendable or even folding dining tables are easier to move around whenever you decide to redecorate your home, or even when you host larger parties and need to move your table. If you have an outdoor garden or large terrace, you could also move the table with ease and enjoy a bit of warmth and sunshine while having breakfast or better yet, brunch on the weekends.
