An extendable table a table equipped with a mechanism composed of guides thanks to which it is possible to slide the various parts of the upper shelf and bring out others, thus increasing its surface. The main mechanisms for extendable tables are two: the one with central extensions, and the one with lateral extensions. In the first case a part of the shelf is added to the center of the previous one, in the second they are added laterally. The final result is almost the same, and you can choose either one or the other indifferently, if not for some cases such as round or oval tables that necessarily require the first type of mechanism. In any case, practicality is absolutely guaranteed, and indeed, together with solidity, are two aspects in continuous evolution.
Furthermore, the guides for the tables can be easily replaced if they are damaged, as they are on sale in every hardware store, even online.

Some of you who might not like a modern design, but prefer very classic looking wooden furniture instead, may be undecided about this choice, as we tend to think of extendable tables as simple and bare plywood side tables that sacrifice. taste in favor of practicality; but not so. In fact, there are extendable tables with the most varied styles and suitable for all your preferences; such as for example oval or round tables in precious solid wood, or with a wrought iron base, again for a very classic design. If you prefer something very elegant but that does not seem too old-fashioned, choose large and rectangular tables with a rattan or painted aluminum base. For something simpler, a square table, perhaps in wood, will be fine, which if elongated will become a rectangular one.
As for the materials, there is something for everyone. Do not be afraid of being disappointed, because on the contrary, you will be surprised knowing that you do not only pay attention to practicality, leaving out the form, but that on the contrary the aesthetic aspect will not be affected in the least. The materials that will perhaps surprise you the most, but which are instead used, are terracotta and travertine, for a rustic and surprising taste; solid precious woods, so as not to detract from the beauty of your table; and tempered glass, which when associated with a wrought iron, aluminum or rattan base, takes on an absolutely current, modern and elegant look. For absolute elegance, marbles and granites are the masters, which also in this case can be used for their characteristics of resistance and beauty, but which are obviously the most expensive among the products. Other materials that will give you a unique design are steel and metal, perhaps painted in the color you prefer; and, if associated with the right style, they will not make the overall look absolutely cold. If, on the other hand, you think that simplicity is the best thing, you will be satisfied with tables in solid wood, resin, acacia and robina; in this case both the price and the maintenance will be lower than the materials listed above. You will have to take into account the care that precious woods or terracotta require, and the greater fragility of glass compared to other materials.
You can find extendable tables for sale in any interior or garden furniture store, or even online. If you are oriented towards more elaborate types and materials than simple wood or plastic, it would be more appropriate that you turn to specialists, who could also fully satisfy your needs if necessary with custom-made artisan tables.
