Drop Leaf Dining Tables at Mom`s House. When my mother got married, she outfitted her home with a complete coordinated set of furniture-a matched master bedroom set, a cocktail table and end tables, a desk for my dad. But the pride and joy of her home was her dining room table. It was Colonial style, pine with a maple finish, and round, 70 inches across. It came with a leaf that would make it oval, and it was easy to seat twelve guests for Thanksgiving dinner.
The drop-leaf design has not been lost on today`s furniture designers. For people who live in apartment and condos and who like to entertain, the drop leaf table provides an excellent solution for a dining room table in a limited amount of space. You can find a variety of drop leaf tables-bar-height or standard size--that you can place at the end of a galley, and turn a small space into an eat-in kitchen. Some drop leaf tables even have storage space for folding chairs built into the base.
Selection of the ideal dining table design for your home depends on the decorating ideas implemented in your home and the space available. For example if you have less space, then drop leaf or folding dining table can be a perfect fit. With folding tables you have the added advantage of folding them and keeping them aside in a store or anywhere else to increase the empty space in the room where the table is usually placed. Similarly, drop leaf table also reduces the space covered by the table, hence, offering you an easy way to increase the space after meals.
For starters, the dining tables don`t usually need to seat six or eight individuals. Several of us can make do with a four seats. Drop leaf and gate-leg tables are two well-liked kinds that have been all around for a couple of hundred years or more. The newer generations of these "expandable" tables supply you with stylish choices that covert into more compact tables when the extensions are not required. Should you want to seat more than four, then you can decide to serve your visitors buffet style and pirate some chairs and occasional tables to deal with the extra visitors.
Now, if by any change a leaf dining table still won`t fit in your dining area, your next option would be a convertible table. You can used it for 2 purposes, first as a coffee table and you can also use it for dining. You have to know though that they usually cost more than the regular ones because of their functionality.
