How to Choose the Ideal Small Dining Table

The dinner table is where family and friends meet. But what about when the space is small? In this case, the tip is to bet on a small dining table.

Far from being uncomfortable or boring, the small dining table is super versatile and nowadays it can be found in beautiful and super modern models. 

How to choose the small dining table


The first thing you should think about is how the dining table will be used. Yes, that’s right. It may seem obvious, but the table isn’t just for eating. It is no longer the case today.
Especially with the shrinking of homes and especially with the increasing number of people working from home, the dining table began to take on other roles.

This means that the dining table can also be used for working, studying and even as a support when preparing meals if the sink is too small.

It is also important to estimate how many people live in the house and how many of them use the table. Do you often receive guests? So write that down too.

If you live alone or as a couple, you can opt for a small retractable dining table, for example, so that you can extend the table and gain space when friends visit. If you are in the habit of working at the table, avoid those with glass tops, which get dirtier and are more difficult to clean.

Available space

If you are looking for a small dining table, it is probably because your space is also small.

But the term “small” can vary greatly from person to person. Some houses are so tiny that you can only use a counter as a table, in others, you can put chairs inside and still have free space to move around. So, even if you think the space is small, take the measurements and then move on to the next tip.

Еnvironment layout

Using the measurements of the room, plan the floor plan of the room where the table will be displayed.
Long environments, usually rectangular, look best with tables of the same shape. And here’s a tip: try leaning the table against the wall and see how you can gain a lot more space.

Already integrated environments can use the table as a spatial delimitation.

Caprice on the chairs

A table is nothing without chairs. Therefore, invest in models related to the decoration of your environment. And a tip: the chairs do not have to form a set with the table. In fact, the idea of ​​using different chairs is even more interesting than using the same chairs.

The tip in order not to make mistakes in the composition is to use the same colours for different models or, on the contrary, the same models with different colours.

It’s also worth mixing styles for more modern decor. For example, a small rustic dining table looks great with modern chairs like the Eames Eiffel.
