Round Kitchen Table Options for a Small Kitchen

Updated on June 9, 2010

If you live in a big city like New York or Boston you know how difficult it can be to find a decent sized apartment with a good size kitchen, especially if you are on a budget. Most people living in a dense metropolitan area will be living in small apartments with only a few rooms and a rather tiny, but cute, kitchen. Shopping for furniture for an apartment like that can be a difficult task but fear not, it isn’t impossible. Start by purchasing a round kitchen table and move out from there.

A kitchen table and some comfortable, yet attractive, chairs will make your life so much easier when you’re first starting out in the big city. You can use the table as a laptop desk, an eating area, or even a television stand while you go out day-by-day scouring the city for more furniture pieces to fill your place. The only problem with starting at the table and moving outwards is that if you have a small apartment and therefore a small kitchen it can be tough to find the right sized table.

The good people over at Round Kitchen Table Ideas talk about many options for the small kitchen. Here are just a few of the most practical ones:

A Drop Leaf Round Kitchen Table:

Drop leaf tables are great for small spaces, especially if you’d like to throw a dinner party in your new place, because they are collapsible. Drop leaf tables use a series of hinges to break apart the tabletop into sections. The table legs can be adjusted to support either the full tabletop or only part of the tabletop so that when you are just relaxing at home you can keep the table small and when you host a party you can make it grow.

A Small Extendable Round Kitchen Table:

Another option is always the extendable table. Rather than using hinges to adjust the size of the table these models tend to have removable pieces. You can spread out the two ends of the table along a glide system and fill in the gap with removable leaves.

A York Cherry Pub Table:

If you don’t want to deal with readjusting your table all the time you can get a stand alone pub style kitchen table. These small round kitchen tables are like the ones you see in patio bars and are great for eating a light meal alone or with a guest.
