Preparing Your Home For The Holidays

Hosting the holidays can be stressful, but here at Mums Place we are ready to help ensure that your home is ready for any event!

Dining Room Tables

While it’s often said that the kitchen is the heart of the home, the dining room is a vital extension of this gathering space. The dining room serves as a place for people come together and enjoy good food, and hopefully good conversation! When it comes to hosting, you want to ensure the space will provide a welcoming presence with enough seating for all. Extendable dining tables come in many forms, with options ranging from the traditional leaf table, self-storing leaf tables, or breadboard extension tables. We love the use of extendable tables to save space on a regular day but provide ample table room when needed for entertaining.

This solid maple dining table makes a powerful addition to any home! The tabletop is 66 inches without the leaf, or 90 inches with one leaf. The clean transitional design can be paired with your choice of chairs to emphasize your homes desired style.

Urban Barnwood Midland Breadboard End Extendable

Breadboard extension tables, like this one, have extensions that go on the ends of the table, instead of a traditional table leaf that fits in the middle.

Do you have enough seating to accommodate everyone at your holiday gatherings this season? If not, consider choosing bench or banquet seating options! Either of these choices will provide ample seating, and to save on space, benches can be tucked under and away when not in use! Benches can be used in combination with standard dining chairs, or in replacement of them entirely, the choice is completely up to you! If you are not familiar, banquet seating is a fun option that can be used to create a cafe style seating arrangement when combined with a couple of small tables and additional chairs.
