Of the many small-space conundrums you may face when decorating a tiny apartment, finding the perfect kitchen table is likely chief among them. Not only does it have to fit in tight quarters, it also has to function for your lifestyle and ideally match your aesthetic as well. Depending on how often you dine in or entertain guests at home, you may want to consider finding a small table that can easily transform into a larger one when you need it (so long as space allows). If you're not one to cook big meals at home, opt for a small bar table and stools or a simple café table for two.
Thankfully, retailers like IKEA practically specialize in small spaces.
