Living in New York City I consider myself lucky to even have a dining room albeit a small one. Choosing a high chair for our son was actually an easy decision since we needed something that would make the absolute smallest impact in this undersized room. Since the Me Too attaches to the table, it doesn't use any floor space which is nice from a practical standpoint as well as visually. It's easy to sweep or, in many cases, mop the floor under it and the chair itself gets wiped down after particularly messy meals and scrubbed in the bathtub every few weeks (or before my mother visits; whichever comes first).
My favorite feature of the Me Too is how portable it is. We haven't taken it to a restaurant yet (as many parents do), but it goes on every overnight trip and we use it on the picnic table in our mini-backyard. It comes off the table in a few seconds and folds flat so you really can tuck it in a large bag. We also enjoy the feeling of having our son right at the table with us both to share meals or play games. We often sit at the table with him and even get a little work done on our laptop as he gets "work" done with his toys.
This style of highchair (there are others besides the Me Too) really works for us in our small apartment. What's working for you at your small place?
