Best extendable dining tables 2022: From M&S, John Lewis, Argos & MORE

Maisie Bovingdon

Christmas is fast approaching, and all the family gatherings are being entered into our diary.

In preparation for the big presentation events, which see all your in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews reuniting for a family gathering, it’s important that you have the space to ensure everyone has a seat at the table – literally.

After all, there is nothing worse than having a few family members on the couch, others at the dining table, a few on the floor, or family that alternates who eats, comes to serve time to ensure they have a seat.

The solution: an extendable dining table.

More often than not, homeowners have a table large enough to seat those living under the same roof, whether it’s a table for two, four, or six.

However, it doesn’t always cut the mustard when guests come knocking, that’s why extendable dining tables.

Some extended designs require an extension to be attached to the table, while others fold down.

From M&S and John Lewis to Argos and many more furniture retailers, we’ve found the best buys to accommodate everyone, and suit all interiors.
