Apartment Living BlogDiy › What To Do When There’s No Space For A Kitchen Table

Having a big kitchen and dining area can be a luxury that many apartments simply don’t have. Fitting a kitchen table into a small space can be next to impossible. There’s no need to worry though, ForRent.com is here with some quick hacks you can try when your kitchen is too small for a normal table.

One option is to turn your counter space into a bar. If your counter has an extension by about a foot, you can grab some stools to create a makeshift bar. The same can be done with a window by creating a window seat. It gives you room to eat and provides a nice view.

Dining tables for small spaces are plentiful if you know what to look for. Drop-leaf tables, for example, provide a nice surface for eating while folding away when you don’t need it. Drop-leaf tables come in many varieties and can work with almost any budget.

You may also find a small apartment table that is especially tall, called a pub table. These tables act sort of like the bar idea and allow chairs or stools to fit in neatly underneath. And don’t forget about a compact dining table that can double as shelf space.

Your kitchen and dining room may be tiny, but with these easy fixes, you’ll be able to find space for a dining table easily.
