Caring for your extendable tables

Caring for extendable table is pretty much the same as with your other typical dining tables. However, here are some additional tips on ensuring that your purchase goes a long way.

Care for the wood

Depending on the material used for the table, different types of care is required.  For solid wood, it is important to ensure that there isn't huge swings in temperature where the furniture is going to be placed.  As wood expands and shrinks, sudden changes in temperature might cause the wood to crack.

Medium Density Fibreboard on the other hand, being made from compressed wood, it is more durable in the light of fluctuating temperature.

It is useful to clean them as and when there are dirt of the table.  Immediately wipe and clean with soft slightly damp cloth to avoid damage to the wood.

Keeping hot materials away from the table, or ensuring that protective materials go under those hot food will keep your table going for many years!

Take care of the extension mechanism

If your table comes with extension mechanism made of stainless steel, it is wise to keep your table away from natural elements.  This is to prevent rust on the extension mechanism, which will make it harder to operate in future.  

If you do not usually use the table extended, do make a point to exercise or to use the extended table every now and then.  This has the benefit of ensuring that the extension mechanism still work well and remind us should oiling be required.  Furthermore, this will expose the hidden leaf to the same elements as the rest of the table.  This will ensure that there are greater uniformity of the colour tone of your table.

Flow Dining Table L150

Great value great design. Minimalist which is what we are looking for. Very prompt service from Calvin. 👍

Received Good Reviews

The sofa compliments the space of my living room well. Not only does it look good but also comfy to sit on! Overall, I am happy with the purchase. Nook & Cranny was most helpful. I purchased the set online and they took the time to contact me and explain (with photos) the height difference between the ottoman and the sofa set which I did not notice. Such professional service!

Thank you, Nook & Cranny!

I am happy! (^^)

Bbautiful color!
This chair is comfortable.
I am happy!!!

Absolutely love it!

I could not be happier with this table, as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. It’s a proper piece of furniture, great with the drawers etc but made so fun,
Modern and youthful by the hot pink colour! Out of the 2 pics N+C use to show the table, the one with the dark wall behind is the most true to the colour in real life I would say, very similar but the table in the pic with the dark background is a more vibrant pink, which it is. Also, it is delivered as it is- no assembly required which is a massive bonus. Really love it!!

The bright colour, pop's up with my grey wall.
