These come in round, square, rectangle, and oval shapes. This makes it easier to find the perfect fit for your space. A large room can easily accommodate a large rectangle table with six to eight chairs. However, if you live in an apartment or town house with a small area your best choice might be a drop leaf dining table. The benefit of this table is that with the leaf out or turned down you have more space for walking around the table. One style that works well for those with a serious space issue is a wall mounted drop leaf table. When this is not in use it only extends a few inches from the wall.
Generally, dining tables can cater up to 4 to 6 persons as per requirements, but if you have requirement of more or less than the usual versions, go for a custom-made table made exactly as per your specification. This will make the table more suited for your particular needs and conserve space in the room.
What are drop leaf tables? They are tables with a fixed center section on the tabletop, and hinged sections on either side that can be dropped down when the table is not in use. When you raised the hinged sides of the tabletop, they are supported movable gate legs, arms, or brackets.
It`s not surprising that an Early American furniture suite would include drop leaf tables. The design dates back to sixteenth century England. The design remains in use today for dining tables, sofa tables, and end tables. A special design for drop leaf tables-a tripod table-is has three legs, and the round table top has three hinged sides. Drop the three hinged sides, and the round table top converts to a triangle, and it can squeeze into a tight corner. With a similar design, a secretary desk with an drop leaf top provides a full-size desktop when necessary, and then can be folded down to accommodate a tight passageway.
