Furnishing apartments is a totally different challenge than furnishing a home. While a home gives you extra space to fit in certain tables and chairs for eating places, apartments have smaller rooms and limited floor areas. Many apartments have walk-in kitchens that lead directly into the living room without any dining room area. So you may not be able to fit in a regular kitchen table in the space while still leaving room for living room furniture and entertainment systems.
When you are looking for small furniture for dining, you might want to consider a bistro table. Bistro tables are the same tables you would see at small cafes and sandwich shops. The table allows for seating for two people as you and your roommate or significant other can have a wonderful meal together that isn’t on the couch right in front of the television. Bistro tables are the perfect space savers as the small table can accommodate a simple floral arrangement when not in use, or two plates and two glasses of wine during dinner time.
Bistro tables come in many different home styles from modern to classic designs. Select a glass round table with sweeping table legs for a more elegant appearance, or a wooden square table when you want a more traditional decor design. Chairs may come with cushions or without depending on your preferences for comfort.
Another unique aspect about bistro tables for apartments is that some designs have foldable sides. If the table hampers people when they try to move about the apartment as they may bang into the edges of the table, you can fold one side down to offer more walking space. When it is time to eat, simply fold and lock the side back into place.
When you are having the large parties, you can stow the small tables and chairs away in another room when you want more space for people to dance. Or you can set up the chips and dip on the table as everybody can gather around as they laugh and talk the night away.
Just because you live in an apartment doesn’t mean that you can’t have a fun and functional dining furniture to have your meals. Select bistro tables as they will make a perfect conversation piece in your apartment, allow you and your friend a place to sit and eat, and add additional space to prepare simple meals. They can easily be moved about and fit into your present decor theme as your apartment will look fantastic.
