How To Choose Dining Tables For Small Spaces

Obviously, you can’t afford to squeeze in a really big dining table when you have a tiny home. Even if could, it wouldn’t be practical. But this doesn’t mean you should give up the idea of enjoying cozy family dinners altogether. It’s simply a matter of making the right choice when trying to find a table that fits.

One clever solution can be to place the table flush against a wall. This means you’d only be able to sit on one side of the table which is not great for large families but it also means you wouldn’t need a wide table so you can save space by getting one that looks more like a bar.{found on dadbuiltthis}.

In fact, why not just go ahead and build a bar and complement it with barstools? You’d actually combine two functions into one clever and simple design and you’ll be able to use the table both for family dinner and for entertaining guests.

If you find barstools to be uncomfortable and you’d rather use the classic type for the dinner table, then your best option would be to get a drop-leaf table. You can still put it against the wall and only use one portion if you think it would be enough.

Drop-leaf tables come in a variety of models and designs. For example, they can also be oval or round if this is a look you prefer.

Some also come with foldable chairs which you can hide inside the table itself when not needed. You’ll save a ton of space this way.

And if that’s not a good option either, perhaps you need something even more space-efficient so get a fold-down table. It can be as big as you want as long as you have space for it on the wall and in the room.

Good old-fashioned dining tables can be an option too. At the end of the day, it’s all about how you use them in your home. So find the right spot for your table and try to combine it with your existing furniture to get maximum efficiency.

A round or an oval table, for example, could fit nicely in a corner and if you decide to put it in the kitchen you’ll also be able to use as extra prep space when making dinner.

The best furniture for tiny space is the one you can hide when you don’t need it. So how about this dining table which you can slide under the staircase as soon as you’re finished enjoying dinner?
