My husband and I recently downsized to a pretty amazing 875-square-foot apartment, and because of that we sold a lot of our furniture (including the kitchen table). This has been a great choice for our daily lives, however this Thanksgiving we will be hosting at least eight people for a huge feast.
So with the holidays coming up, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for awesome-looking, space-saving tables that could easily be folded up once the guests are gone? –iLiveinmyLab
You have come to the right place! I ditched my kitchen table completely and have had to get creative when I (rarely) need to have a seated dinner. Here are some awesome-looking table options from tables you can purchase today, to creative work-arounds…
Expanding dining tables are a thing, and they are blowing my mind. It goes from a tiny console table, to a card table, then a full-sized dining table!
Colorful tables add a bit more fun to yer typical molded plastic fold-away tables. This one comes in blue and red.
The Flip Top BenchTable could sit outside on your patio until you need to bring it in to dine.
Same thing goes for the Merry Garden Interchangeable Picnic Table and Garden Bench.
Check out this product that’s sadly no longer available — it’s a hanging mirror that converts into a table. Perhaps there’s a way to DIY this?
Looking for something in a round table? Check out the fold flat Achla Designs 48-Inch Folding Table.
The Kartell Spoon Tables are pricey, but ultra modern and sleek.
Do what I used to do: Buy a (removable) glass-topped dining table with an awesome base. Then invest in a smaller glass table top that is the size of the table base. When you’re not using it as a dining table, place the small glass piece on top and use it as an accent or side table, and store the larger glass top.
Phew, those are all my suggestions. What do other dining table-less people do when they need to host a dinner party?
