You don’t always need to have a formal dining table to enjoy family meals together. In fact, having a formal dining table may be more of a nuisance than a help. That huge table takes up a big chunk of real estate in your home during the day, preventing you from using the space for other reasons, such as exercising, home study, or even entertaining guests. Plus, it may be just you and your partner or you may have a small family, which means that you don’t even need that big table when you do dine.
The Box Coffee to Dining Table from Expand Furniture is the perfect space-saving option to let you enjoy family meals together while also conserving space in the room for other uses. Here’s what you need to know about this box coffee table:
How It Works
The Box Coffee to Dining Table looks like an unassuming coffee table when it is not in use. It has a modern design with a simple box shape that sits low to the ground, similar to an ottoman but in wood paneling rather than fabric. The style is perfect for contemporary homes.
Hidden underneath the coffee table are chrome legs in a scissor formation. When you need to transform the coffee table into a dining table, you just raise up the table top as the legs elongate. Think of it the way you would a jack under a car, except you don’t have to wind it up; you just have to raise it gently with your hands.
The two sides of the box table then pull out, revealing a space in the middle where you can insert matching eaves. After just a minute or two of your time, you will have converted the coffee table into a dining table that can comfortably seat 10 people.
Putting the table away is as easy as it was to expand it. Just remove the eaves, close up the table top, and lower the legs. You don’t even have to move the table.
Benefits of the Expanding Table
The obvious benefits of this expanding coffee table include being able to take advantage of more of your space when you are not dining and easy operation. There are other space-saving tables available, but not all of them have the same ease of use as this box coffee table.
Another great benefit of this table is that it is easy to clean. The glossy paneling only needs to be wiped down with a soft cloth to keep it free of dust. You don’t have to use furniture polish or protective oil, and you won’t have to re-stain it down the road.
Depending on the finish you choose, the table is also water-resistant. You can spill drinks without worrying that you’ll leave behind a ring or warp the surface.
Finally, the gorgeous design will instantly elevate the look of your living room or dining area all on its own.
