Dining Tables come in all types and sizes and with enough searching you are sure to find one that will be perfect in your home.A dining table can last you for a number of years, so it's important to choose the right one.A well-finished item of furniture will give years of good service, especially if it is maintained regularly.

we have an Ikea bjursta one, extends to seat around 10 and has dealt with everything a toddler can throw at it.

Thanks. Have a wipe clean tablecloth on my kitchen table at the moment and can't believe I spent good money buying a nice quality table which is never seen! Will check out ikea, thanks.

Ikea have a selection of extendable tables at reasonable prices. I think a wip clean tablecloth is a staple in a house with young children. There's such a range of prints, you should be able to find something to suit?

Could you not get a wooden one and put a plastic cover over for children drawing etc. I know the range have a good choice of plastic fabrics etc...?

I am looking for a dining table, preferably an extending one due to limited space, but really want one that is child friendly as the dining room is also the DCs playroom. I really don't want to spend loads of money so any ideas on where I could get something cheap? Also, inevitably the DCs are going to draw on the table at some point, is there any point getting wood? Will it look terrible if is has marks on it or will it add to the character grin ? Is there such a thing as a table that children can draw on/eat at without layers of protection that will still look half decent?

I would rather get a cheap plastic table that can be used day to day than a posh wooden table that needs mats/coasters/a tablecloth at all times as I can always use a tablecloth when people are over for dinner.
