Indulging in an Expandable Dining Room Table
Changing lifestyles have us running constantly these days, and always in different directions. But one tradition should stay even as families spread out - a meal at the dinner table. Getting the family together for one meal a day bonds it together. It teaches conduct and etiquette to the children, who otherwise might never learn the right way. Most of all, it forces everyone to decompress for a little while. With most meals now being eaten on the run, a chance to eat and relax is paramount to maintaining some amount of personal and familial health.
The difficulty with this logic is that most modern homes have not been designed to suit a large dining room table. Open floor plans make the dining area the living area as well, and having a huge table sitting at one end of it seems like a waste of space. Still, to fulfill the need for family integrity, and also have a place to entertain friends and family, you must have a place to congregate.
The solution: an expandable dining table. Having a table that collapses, or has removable leaves, is a great way to create flexibility in your living space without compromising family bonding time. Expanding tables can be found in formal as well as more casual styles, meaning there are choices accessible to fit you décor and your lifestyle. If the leaves collapse under the table, it can stay a family dinner table until demand calls for extra space. If the table expands with insertable leaves, they can be removed and stored under a bed or in a closet to allow the table to take up a smaller footprint when the table space isn't required.
