The Best Space-Saving Tables for Your Square-Footage-Challenged ‘Dining Room’
The dream? A chic dining room setup that also maximizes square footage. But isn't the term “space-saving” synonymous with “not-so-cute” when it comes to furniture? Heck, no. These fabulous tables fold, expand and otherwise slink their way into even the smallest of spaces, making your dining room dreams a stylish reality.
Lightweight with rounded edges, this versatile bistro table is perfect for tiny kitchens that double as dining rooms.
We love the warm, weathered patina of this dining table’s leaves. (But we really, really love the built-in storage space.)
Pottery Barn ($399)
This crisp, Shaker-style table (which expands from cute and compact to roomy seating for eight) is an investment piece that will never go out of style.
Clean and polished, this modern table works equally well as a wall-flush dining setup for two or as a freestanding spot for four.
Design Within Reach (from $1,040)
With its amply-sized fold-down leaves, this industrial-chic number easily morphs from narrow console to a full-size dining table when you need one.
Crate & Barrel ($699)
God, we love a good pedestal table. Especially one that can work as a four seater 360 days a year but fit up to ten on holidays (thanks to large extension leaves stored underneath).
Miles Redd for Ballard Designs ($2,299)
This sleek, levered table adjusts from bistro to counter height in minutes, making it an especially smart choice for tricky floor plans.
Design Within Reach ($1,895)
With its euphoria-inducing price tag and three configurations (no leaves, one leaf or two), this country-style beauty is a no-brainer for the square-footage challenged.
This super slim counter-height table is the perfect dining table/prep space solution for a narrow galley kitchen.
