Traditional Shapes Round or square, traditional dining table shapes can work in a small space. Your choice will depend on where you want to place your table and how many people will typically use it. There’s no shortage of style options when choosing a table with a traditional shape. But for legroom purposes, you may wish to consider a pedestal table. Just make sure there’s enough weight and balance in the base to keep the table from wobbling or tipping. If only one or two people will sit at the table on a regular basis, a square table placed in a corner or against a wall can free up valuable floor space. If more people will regularly sit around your small kitchen table, a free-standing table in any shape will likely work better. Use the chart below to choose the right dimensions for your space and for the amount of people you want to seat. Shop Small Space Dining Sets

Seating and Chairs for Small Tables If you choose to buy a table that doesn’t come in a set with chairs, there are a few things to consider. First, make sure the chairs will fit all the way under your new table, both in height and width. The space between the seat of the chair and the tabletop should be around 12”. Chairs with arms add bulk that makes it difficult to squish in more seating when needed. And since you often can’t push them all the way under the table, chairs with arms can stick out several inches from the edge of the table, taking up valuable space. Second, consider folding chairs, which can easily be stored in a closet or against a wall to free up space. You don’t have to settle for cold and clunky metal folding chairs. There are several wood options available that are narrower and slimmer. Some even collapse to be completely flat. Third, benches are a practical alternative to chairs. A bench against a wall with a small table makes a booth as cozy as the one at your favorite local eatery. Plus a bench with a hinged seat can double as storage in your small space. Shop Bar Stools

Extendable Tables: Just because you have a small dining space doesn’t mean you don’t like to entertain. An expandable table comes with leaves that extend a small table for a the-more-the-merrier get-together. But that’s not the only advantage of an extendable table. You can also use the larger space for extra kitchen prep, to work from home, or to practice your favorite hand-crafting hobby.

If you have a small kitchen, there are three things to consider when choosing a table: height, adaptability, and shape. Counter- or bar-height tables can help draw up the eye, making the room feel bigger. Extendable and drop-leaf tables are a great option that are a little more adaptable to your space. A round table usually takes up less space, but a square table can easily be pushed into a corner. Read on to learn how to make the most of your small space.

The great thing about a taller table is that the added height lets the table double as a prep space, which is a major advantage in a small kitchen. Plus a higher table draws the eye up, creating an illusion that they are taking up less space. There are two choices when it comes to taller tables: counter-height and bar-height.

Colour-block with mats and runners – Now this dining table in a streamlined London kitchen does have a pendant light above it, but, for me, it’s the sunshine yellow place mats that really help the table feel like a separate zone. A table runner would work, too – an equally simple, inexpensive way to colour block for focus in a pale, pared-back space.

If you are not buying your tall table in a set, it is essential to check the height of the chairs against your table, as bar-height and counter-height tables are easily confused. Generally you’ll need at least 12 inches between the seat of the chair and the underside of the table.

First, make sure the chairs will fit all the way under your new table, both in height and width. The space between the seat of the chair and the tabletop should be around 12”. Chairs with arms add bulk that makes it difficult to squish in more seating when needed. And since you often can’t push them all the way under the table, chairs with arms can stick out several inches from the edge of the table, taking up valuable space.

Drop-Leaf Tables: A drop-leaf table has a similar function to an expandable table, but many drop-leafs downsize to a width of just a few inches, making it easy to push fully out of the way when not in use. Some tables drop both sides and some attach to the wall and drop only one side, so your choice is merely based in preference.
