The contrary of bustling, multifunctional rooms like your kitchen, the dining room is a simple space devoted solely to hosting and feasting. While it's a room that may be used infrequently, it is well suited for large get-togethers, family dinners and celebrations. When perusing dining area ideas, think about what kind of furniture and decorative accents will transform the area into an entertaining mecca.
A table is a deceptively large furniture piece, and you need to take into account space around it.If you're tight on space, consider options such as leaves that permit the table to expand. These let you customize the table for different entertainment needs and party sizes, said Mahoney. The thing Pourny warned against was way too many mechanisms or leaves that were attached or hidden within the table (versus stand-alone leaves). If you buy things that are too complicated, it's just more chance of something to fail, he told us. The sturdiest expansion tables will be those where the leaves are solid, separate units that you put on the base once you've opened the table (pitched against a flip-up or butterfly style). If you intend to use your table very differently on weeknights versus weekends, expansion tables can be a great option.
