The Best Small-Space Kitchen and Dining Tables You Can Buy Online
These space-saving tables are short in size but big on style.
You don’t need a huge banquet table to create a stylish dining room. If you have a small dining room or even a small space without a bonafide dining room, there are tricks to maximize square footage and create a dining area. You just need a space-saving dining table. A good rule of thumb is to look for a table that’s less than 60 inches in length or diameter. It’s not hard to find a small dining table like this, but there aren’t as many to shop for since traditional dining tables are in the 75- to 90-inch range. So, we’ve scoured the internet for the best dining room tables for small spaces. We’ve rounded up our favorite petite dining tables in tons of different styles, wood grains and colors as well as space-saving features such as extendable tables, leaves and drop-leaf tables. Take a look at our top picks below — several under $300! — and treat yourself to a new dining room table.
- Counter Height: Tables listed as counter height are taller than standard-size tables but shorter than bar height.
- Dinette: A dinette is a small dining table set usually made up of a table and two to four chairs that's typically designed for smaller dining rooms and kitchens.
- Drop Leaf: A drop leaf is a section of the tabletop that is attached to the table and cannot be removed. The piece has a hinge so it can fold down when not in use.
- Extension: Like a leaf, tables with extensions can extend to a larger size. But extendable tables have extra tabletop built into the table (often hidden under the table) and do not have to be manually inserted.
- Leaf: A table leaf is an additional section of tabletop you can add to extend the size. Some tables come with multiple leaves.
If we were to name an MVP for small dining tables, it would be this midcentury model from West Elm. It's under $1,000 and just 42 inches long. But it does contain an expandable panel that takes it up to 60 inches to seat six to eight people.
White marble never goes out of style. And if you already have a marble-top coffee table and love it, you can get the same look in your dining room with this stunning table. The black base is so chic and looks great paired with black wood or metal chairs.
