Whether you’re an apartment dweller or a tiny house owner, limited kitchen and dining space can cramp your style. Small apartments tend to have a compartmentalized layout, and often times you can’t fit just any old dining table in the space. When it comes to tiny living, you have to get a bit more creative. You’ll probably want to opt for a dining set that either offers extra storage or can fold up and store away when it’s not in use.
But just because you’re short on space doesn’t mean you need to give up the dream of starting your day with a hot cup of coffee at your breakfast nook. Space-saving, smaller kitchen tables give you a place to sit and sip without forcing you to wedge your chair into a wall.
Whether you prefer a drop leaf table or an option with attached storage, we’ve found some of the best small kitchen tables for your quaint abode.

Where can you purchase the Five piece small Round kitchen table As pictured above.
You forgot the classic IKEA “Norbo” birch wall-mount drop-leaf table.
You can seat two people in folding chairs on either side of the Norbl ; or use it as a desk.
Mount 2 side by side on a wall, and you can seat 4.
