Why Add an Extendable Table to Your Dining Space?

A true farmhouse style allows you to seat many people around the table and in the comfort of your home. This type of table allows you to expand for special occasions. Whether you have a larger or smaller dining space, you can find a table that works with your dining room. For smaller dining spaces, square or round tables are a great option. With leaf add-ons and extension options, you can accommodate extra guests on special occasions while keeping your dining space just right on typical days.

Our selection of extendable dining tables has various options for you to choose from. In terms of wood, you can find tables made of solid reclaimed barnwood, quarter-sawn oak, rustic cherry wood, and more.

FAQs About Extendable Dining Tables

What is an expandable dining table?

Extendable tables mean you can expand the size of the table. Some have optional self-storing leaf(s) or breadboards to seat extra guests.

What are the different types of extendable dining tables?

Depending on the table selected, removable leaf extensions (minimum 12"W each) or breadboard extensions (minimum 6"W each) are available.

How do extendable dining tables work?

Expandable dining tables can have breadboard extensions that are placed just inside the table's ends to add length. For other tables, the tabletop opens in the middle by way of a gliding mechanism, and leaves are then inserted to expand the top.

Which dining table takes up less space?

We recommend a square or round table if you have a smaller dining room or want to save space. Each leaf adds a minimum of 12". Breadboard extensions add a minimum of 6" each. More breadboard sizes are available upon request.

Are butterfly leaf tables and expandable dining tables the same?

Butterfly leaf tables have leaves that are stored in the middle and come out like a butterfly! So it's technically the same because the leaves are in the middle of the table. But breadboard extensions are not the same as a butterfly leaf table because the extensions are added at the ends of the table.

What kind of dining table would be a good choice for a small dining room?

We recommend a round or square tabletop. Both can have leaf extensions so you can expand them for guests!

What dining table legs are available at Rustic Red Door?

We offer various solid wood bases (trestle, legs, pedestal), black powder-coated steel bases (golden gate, twisted knuckle, and more), and some with turnbuckles! Browse around to see which suits your taste best.
