A good functional dining space always needs a sturdy buffet table. Just think of all that space to store your table linens, flatware, and serving dishes. It also provides an extra surface to style a vase, mirror, lamp, and other small objects. In a dining room where furniture is otherwise usually floating in the center of the space, it's nice to have another piece to anchor against a wall and provide visual interest.

While it can be tempting to forgo a buffet in a small space in favor of a larger dining table, we suggest doubling down and picking up the largest one that will fit in your space. Storage space comes at a premium in small apartments, and credenzas can go a long way toward making a space feel more organized. Convinced? We handpicked our 15 favorite small buffet tables to suit any space and budget.
