With the holidays well underway, families are visiting and guests are coming over for parties more often – so how do you provide them with plenty of room to sit and plenty of table space at dinner without sacrificing your space for the rest of the year to come? For those living in smaller spaces, having too many chairs or too big a table would be disastrous for most of the year, but guests must be taken into account. Here are some suggestions at accommodating everyone at your next holiday event.
An outdoor dinner service can be a great solution for someone short on interior space – outdoor furniture doesn’t take up any indoor space, after all, and it provides extra options even after your party’s over. An outdoor dining table set can provide a great place to host guests and a creative alternative to a dining room, and weather-resistant options mean that you don’t have to worry about taking the set inside when your food is done. Of course, this only works with plenty of outdoor space and good weather, but if the conditions are right it can be a lovely option.
Expanding dining tables are, of course, always a good option. Most modern expandable dining tables are designed to be sturdy and long-lasting, with moving parts that will last a long time. Many come with the extra length easily built in, ensuring that you have no extra parts to deal with when your guests are gone. In addition, expandable dining tables come in a variety of styles and options, ensuring that you can match them easily to your room’s needs. With many nicer tables, it’s difficult to even tell that the seams are there – the table works at any size.
Folding chairs are often thought of as cheap and tacky, but modern, well-made folding chairs present a totally different image. Many are designed in stylish, unique ways that take advantage of their shape to provide a unique profile. In addition, many are made of materials like solid wood or steel, ensuring their lasting power and durability. Provide as many chairs as you need to your guests without having to worry about the extra chairs getting in the way the rest of the year.
With these and many other tricks, you can enjoy a large holiday meal with your family or friends without worrying about what to do about the extra furniture afterward. Enjoy your spacious rooms most of the year and enjoy your company during the holidays.
