Space saving dining table designs for your home

Let’s make room for joy with these ingenious space-saving dining table designs

Dining rooms are essential areas at home, and they need to feel warm and inviting. However, in recent years, we have seen that Indian urban homes have smaller dining areas. Many dining rooms come as a part of the living rooms. Therefore, it is imperative to design dining rooms smartly.

While you can’t do much about your dining room’s spatial area, you can work on the other aspects of the room to make it spacious and organised. We at Design Cafe give utmost importance to furniture because it can significantly influence space-saving issues at home. For dining rooms, the majority of the room’s space is taken up by the dining table. Therefore, to help you, we have brought our unique space-saving dining table design ideas that will redefine your food place at home.

These are smartly designed space-saving dining tables that look good and are also quite pocket-friendly. So, pin the ideas and make a contemporary, spacious dining room for your home.

You Don’t Have To Make Room For This Convertible Space-Saving Dining Table

We all love a big dining table so that whenever there are guests, there are no space issues at the table. However, a big dining table eats all the space in the room. And if you have a shared living-cum-dining room, then having a six- or eight-seater dining table would be too overwhelming. But that doesn’t mean you have to have dinner on your couch to make room for your guests at the dining table. This convertible table is the savviest way of implementing a space-saving dining table for 6. The wooden dining table comes with a folding part that can be kept folded in when not used. Generally, the table has a four-seater space with an extendable part of two extra seating spaces. Therefore, you can keep away two dining chairs when not used to save space in the room.

Why Not Go With This Round Space-Saving Dining Table For Four?

Round dining tables are really great to add to the aesthetics of your dining area. They look unique and welcoming and can come in different looks. Also, round tables have the practicality of legs. Thus, these tables eliminate the four typical legs of the square and rectangular tables and hence are less annoying even if you are arranging a dinner for four. Round dining tables are perfect for smaller rooms because they don’t have corners, so this minimises the chances of hitting your legs on the corners (which is very common). The round space-saving dining table design coupled with raised fancy chairs exhibits an elegant dinner set-up. The other benefit of this type of dining table is that it is easy to move to play around with the table position.
