For those who happen to have a larger dining space, the classic rectangular-shaped dining table works best. Consider purchasing a table that comes with table leafs or extensions if you do happen to play host to a lot of dinner parties and events. By the way, a table leaf adds additional length to your dining or gathering table and is usually hidden in the center of the table or at the ends. Generally, one or two leaves are included and most of the time can be stored within a hidden compartment underneath the table.
If you do get a table with leaves, be sure you leave them in the table for much of the year so that they don't age at a different rate, leaving you with odd stripes in your table that look newer than the rest of the table.
Changing the size of dining tables will depend either on how it has been designed or what you can add to it on occasion to increase the surface area. Dining room tables with leaves or extension surfaces allow you to use the smaller version of the table everyday, and then to separate the table into halves and add the extension leaves in between. You might also up for a separate surface to be placed on top of the table to extend the surface area, this separate surface can be used when required and covered and stored in the garage when not required.
