Small Kitchen Tables - Space Saving Ideas: 

 


Small Kitchens - How Much Space?

The first key to consider is exactly how much space you have available for your table and accompanying chairs. Start with a table dimension that you think might fit, and then add room for the number of chairs, stools, or benches that you will require. You then need to add about two feet for each chair etc. to provide room for maneuvering around. You will quickly notice that chairs and the space they require begin to occupy a large area. If you have a very small kitchen you may want to consider other options such as a free standing table or a bar extension. Kitchen tables are available for small spaces in exciting and creative looking new designs today. A small dining set or a small dining table and chairs can require more room than you think - so measure first.

Our advertisers offer not only small kitchen tables featuring unique designs like wallmount, island tables, and drop leaf tables but they also offer more traditional designs made for smaller areas. Make sure you take a look. If you are on a tight budget cheap small kitchen tables can easily be found online. If you are looking for inexpensive creative designs its hard to beat Ikea for tables that provide great value for your money.

Small Kitchen Tables - Dining and Homework

The second key is to decide exactly how you will be using your table. Sometimes kitchen tables have to perform multiple functions. Does it just need to provide a quiet secluded area for that morning cup of coffee, or is it the primary area where all your meals will be eaten? Will it have to occasionally double as your office desk, or a homework center? The day to day demands of how your table will be used influences your choice. For example, if all you are looking for is a table to set your cup of morning coffee on while you gaze out your kitchen window, perhaps something as simple and compact as a wall mounted table might be perfect. If you are looking for a table that will fit into a small kitchen and help to create a wonderful ambiance you might want  to consider a small bistro style table. If you want to add a little excitement into your home how about a retro style kitchen table or a kitchen booth with benches.    

Small Kitchen Tables - Shapes 

You will be able to find small kitchen table sets in almost any shape you can image - square, rectangular, round, half-moon or even triangular. It really depends on how your kitchen is laid out and the traffic flow in and out of your kitchen. Do you need a table that can fit easily into a corner, along a wall, or perhaps even an island style standup solution in the middle of the room? A corner table works especially well in small kitchens because it helps to create more space for maneuvering around. You will also want to consider the shape of your kitchen. For example, if your kitchen is basically a rectangle, a rectangular or oval shaped table usually works the best. If your kitchen is more of a square, then a square table or a small round dining table will be more complementary. Small kitchen table furniture is available in a shape to fit your home. If space is really at a premium and you need to maximize every square inch of space you may want to consider a wallmount table for your kitchen. You can find very clever designs online or it's not a very difficult project for a home owner with basic carpentry skills.

Small Kitchen Tables - Materials 

Ok, we have the pragmatic considerations out of the way, no on to the fun stuff. Of course, you don’t have to choose between wood, metal or glass, you could combine them. The first thing you want to consider is the other types of materials already in your kitchen - your kitchen cabinets, counter tops, and flooring for example. If you have glass cabinet faces then a matching glass kitchen table would provide a nice complement. Or if you have a dark oak stain for example, then you may want to stay with a similar wood kitchen table. Prefer a more modern trendy look, then a take a look at a metal table or French Bistro design. You can find a small dining room set or small dining room tables in a variety of materials and designs.  

In addition to choosing a look that will complement the materials already in your kitchen you may also want to think about cleaning and maintenance. Wood of course will likely mean that you have to polish your table occasionally to keep it looking nice and glass will require cleaning with a glass cleaner to get rid of smudges. A small kitchen island is a great solution if you need a table that doesn't require much space and can also help with additional storage and you may want to consider a small kitchen cart, especially portable designs.

Small Kitchen Tables - Traditional to Modern

Small kitchen tables come in a variety of look, materials, designs and colors. Most modern tables are made from either metal or glass or a combination of these two materials. Of course, if you spend a little time researching online you will also be able to find tables that have a modern design and look but are made from traditional materials. Small kitchen tables in a traditional style are typically made from wood and usually have a historic theme such as a Mission table or a retro kitchen table. No matter which style you prefer, from a small bistro table to a small breakfast table you will be able to find a great selection of small kitchen tables online that will reflect your personal tastes, be very functional, and fit into the space that you have available.
