Extendable dining tables guide

In the morning a cozy breakfast with the family, in the afternoon coffee party with two grandmothers, the grandchildren and three aunts and in the evening romantic dinner for two? With a pull-out dining tableThat’s not a problem. After all, the dining table is the center of family life – and the more flexible size and number of seats can be varied, the more diverse are the possible uses. We have put together information about pull-out dining tables to make your selection easier.

How many people should be at the table?

If you want to buy a pull-out dining table, you should first consider two important factors. How many people need to be seated regularly at the table – and how many should fit the extended table? If you have a large family or very often many guests, you do not need a pull-out table, but you should opt for a large table right away. But if only occasionally more people are expected than there are regular seats at the table, is a flexible extending tablethe optimal choice.

How many seats a table offers is very easy to calculate. A normal place setting needs about 60 cm width and 40 cm depth. In the middle, an additional 20 cm is needed for pots, bowls or plates. You should also keep in mind the room size in your choice. Of course, an extendable table needs more space than the pure maximum table length. When extended, you should add the chair depth of approx. 30 cm per front end. If there are no 60 – 80 cm more to the wall of the room, there is not enough space for another guest at the front end. This should be considered in your planning.

Which extraction mechanisms are there?

Important when choosing the extendable dining table is the mechanism with which you can extend the table. It should be stable but smooth. Some tables can be taken off only in pairs, which means a higher effort if necessary. Here is a small overview of the common variants:

The simplest version of the extendable dining table is the drawer extension. The two extracts are located at the front of the table. They are hidden here under the actual tabletop. After the excerpt, the table top lowers to the height of the extracted plates. This happens jerkily and can end with painfully squeezed fingers. The table should be cleared better before taking off. To push back the push-out, the large plate must be raised. The drawer extension is therefore a cheap, but not very comfortable variant.

Although strictly speaking, a table with an attachment plate does not have an extension plate, but is often offered under the name of an extendable dining table. Here an additional plate is inserted at the front of the table. The disadvantage: The plate is not integrated into the table and must be stored separately somewhere.

The butterfly pull-out is not only very comfortable, but also easy to use. The front sides of the table are pulled apart by two people. This releases hinged tabletops. These can unfold like butterfly wings. The table tops are firmly locked by pushing the table sides together again.

Similarly, the scenery extract works. Again, two people are needed to pull the front sides apart. The additional table tops are stowed away under the table to save space and are placed on rails or frames. Another collapse of the side panels fixes the additional panels.

Wonderfully uncomplicated is the high-quality dubbing. He often finds himself at pillar tables with only one metatarsus. If you pull at the end of a table, both table ends glide apart at the same time by a sophisticated mechanism and release the additional table top. This is, similar to the butterfly extract, simply unfolded. The advantage of the synchronous extension: This variant can be operated by only one person.
