In this review we take a look at the Winsome Wood Table Drop Leaf Space Saving Dining Set. This breakfast nook furniture set is ideal for small dining areas where space is at a premium.
The space saving dining set is available in two colors, Natural and Teak, and two styles, Round and Square. The included stools have been designed to match the shape of the folding leaf, so, if you order the round top table the stool tops will be round, and the square top table will come with square top stools.
The Winsome is an ideal product for any small space, and can be used for multiple purposes, such as a dining table, food preparation area or even as a kitchen island.
Being manufactured from solid wood, as opposed to particle or fiber board, ensures the stability and sturdiness of the product, although, it does also mean the table is on the heavy side (64lbs).
The ability to fold out the top leaf and store the stools underneath the table makes the Winsome an extremely versatile product that takes up very little space. If you don’t need to put the stools underneath, the space could be used for a small storage area.
The optional casters on the legs and leaf support provide excellent mobility. Two out of the five casters have a locking function which is ideal for keeping the table in place when in use.
Another nice feature of this space saving dining set is the twin drawer system that is located on the opposite side to the drop leaf. These are very handy for storing kitchen utensils, cutlery or linens.
The instructions are very clear, concise and laid out in a step-by-step fashion. All parts are easy to identify and assembly should take two people no more than an hour and a half.
One of the most asked questions is in regard to the towel rail / pull handle and if the can be fitted on the other side of the product. Yes, it can be fitted to either right or left by identifying parts A and B, finding the one that has the holes in for the rail / handle and placing it on the side of your choice.
Although the instructions are very clear, the order of construction can be improved upon. Below are some tips that you may want to take note of.
- Fix the towel rail on first, and ensure it is on the correct side when attaching it to the frame.
- Insert the screw concealers near the handle before screwing the top on.
- Place the table top upside down on the floor and put the frame on top, attach the top to the frame by loosely putting in one screw and then another diagonally opposite, leave the screws loose until they are all in.
- Before installing the wheels make sure to identify the locking ones and put them where required.
