You may live in a small space that lacks a dining room, but that doesn’t mean you can’t carve out a space for mealtimes and entertaining guests. There are plenty of smaller dining table sets out there that can fit in even the tiniest of spaces—especially if you go for a counter height set with stools that can tuck underneath your table. Whether you’re looking to seat two people, four people, or even just one person, these bistro sets have you covered. As a bonus, several of these options are under $200, and all are under $400—meaning they take up as little space in your wallet as they do in your home.
Not only does this breakfast bar set seat two people with plenty of space to eat, the stools hang neatly from built-in racks under the table, so you can stash them away when not in use (or for easy sweeping and vacuuming).
This gold-and-white table and chairs set is simple and sleek, and since this table has a drop-leaf section, it can take up as much (or as little) space as you’d like.
