Small Counter Height Tables

Updated

A casual place to eat, an extra prep surface, and an intimate spot for catching up—counter height tables are truly the ultimate multifunctional furniture that every home needs. Of course, not everyone has a kitchen/dining area that is big enough to accommodate a full-size table. In this case, your best bet would be a small counter height table—equally functional but with the added benefit of being space-efficient! From narrow designs that fit snugly in corners to those that come packed with storage, the options are endless.

Small counter height kitchen table with side shelf

Zipcode Design™

Measuring only 36” long and 31” wide, this small counter height table for two is simple, understated, and functional all in one. It boasts clean lines that form a compact, rectangular shape and comes in a crisp white color to suit all kinds of interior styles.

Designer Advice:

With three open shelves on the side, this table is an ideal choice for anyone short on storage space in the kitchen. They make a great home for both decorative and everyday items, such as plants, books, tableware, as well as picture frames. Another alternative is to turn the shelves into a liquor display or mini-pantry stocked with jars and baskets.

Counter height small kitchen table with coastal flair

Beachcrest Home™

Gorgeous and solid, this streamlined counter height table has a small footprint yet can hold 4 chairs while providing a decent amount of space for dining. Channeling coastal vibes, it is available in two cool shades—rustic brown and gray—finished off with weathered detailing.

Designer Advice:

Aside from their space-saving qualities and multipurpose nature, counter height tables typically stand between 34 to 36 inches tall, which is the perfect height for both standing and sitting positions. Therefore, they are a must-have if you often entertain at home given they are neither too high nor too low. Plus, small counter height tables make a practical workstation as well!

Designer Advice:

If you’re looking for a small but spacious dining table that can seat more than four people, your best bet would be a counter height table with a drop leaf. This one, for instance, takes on a round silhouette when the leaf is removed and comfortably fits four dining chairs. When expanded, the table turns into an oval, allowing room for up to six!

Small Counter Height Tables

Buying Guide

Counters are wonderful things – except for when they aren’t big enough or, well, just not enough. Small counter height tables can help bridge that gap. They work well with barstools that are designed to work with your counter, and they make excellent breakfast nook tables that allow you to look out a window that is placed at countertop height. They can include end storage and can have folding tops or even table leaves for extending the table. They are ideal for that super tall family member who always looks like an adult visiting a kindergarten room when seated at the regular family dining table.

Simple Bench Style Table

Your counter height table could be a simple bench style table that can fit against a wall or snug up under a window. Enjoy your morning cuppa and pastry while looking out at the world. Whether your window view is trees and greenery or a busy city street, let your eyes feast on the panorama of the world instead of the inside of your own four walls.

Drop Leaf Table

Add a couple of low-back bar stools and a bouquet to this drop leaf table, and position the grouping in a wide hall or unused bit of floor space. It makes a nice conversation corner or a place to rest between cleaning bouts. Include a charging station for your favorite e-reader or game tablet.

Storage End Extendible Roll Out Table

Most of the time, it just looks like another part of your kitchen cabinets. But when you have need of some extra counter space or you have more dinner guests than can fit around the kitchen table, you can pull out this table, pop up its drop leaf sides and have a place for guests to sit and enjoy the warm ambiance of dining with the rest of the family and friends.

Rolling Serving Cart

If you are serving a good, old-fashioned harvest meal, most modern tables just won’t accommodate a large meat platter, two or three kinds of vegetable, sweet and savory relishes, and all the other things that go with a country-style meal. A rolling, counter height, serving cart makes it easy to move added dishes or dessert from the counter to the table without danger of spilling or dropping hot food.

Round Tables

Fit out that odd corner in your kitchen or dining area with a round table and accompanying benches. The setting will fit neatly together so that you can store it tidily in a window corner when it is not in use, or just pull out one bench if all it is wanted for is a morning break. Add a vase of flowers, and a small scent atomizer for creating a pleasant ambiance.
