Yesterday, we rounded up a few ideas for wall-mounted breakfast bars in the kitchen. If you've got a few more square feet to spare, why not try a tiny table? It serves the same purpose as a breakfast bar, providing a dining surface and extra prep space, but it's a little more flexible if you're the type that likes to re-arrange things a lot.
- This architect's loft from Marie Claire Maison is full of good small space ideas—we love the tiny breakfast nook with three mismatched chairs. For a similar look, try a painted bistro table.
- IKEA's Norden folds from a counter into a two or four-seat kitchen table. For more small space kitchen ideas from IKEA, click here..
- A Swedish kitchen table is cut to fit flush against the wall, a DIYable design that could be created by cutting down a table top, adding a pedestal, and bolting the piece to the wall.
- In Dehlia's home, a beautiful square wooden table is just large enough for a chair or two. To find a similar Danish modern piece, scour craigslist and keep an eye out at thrift stores.
- A tulip table fits snugly into the corner of an attic kitchen. Pedestal tables are a good choice for small spaces where legs could get in the way.
