Amid the daily chaos, dinner should be a special time that everyone looks forward to. Involve youngsters in the preparation – whether it’s chopping veggies or laying the table. Sometimes family members might be out of the house for work or study, so an extendable INGATORP dining table can adapt to the right number.

2. Guide all eyes to a beautiful table setting
