While theres a lot of resources out there for decorating todays larger homes, theres very little about how to decorate an apartment or incorporate your furniture into it. Lets face it, many people are downsizing these days and even a 1,000 square foot apartment can seem pretty small after living in a house.
Measure the room - The first thing you need to do is measure the room in which you are going to put the small table. Knowing the rooms measurements will help you narrow down the options you have when it comes to selecting a small table. Once you have the room measurements you need to consider what else will go in the room in addition to the small table. Think about chairs, china cabinets, bookshelves and other pieces of furniture that will help complete this space. Once you know all of the pieces of furniture that will go into the room you should be able to narrow down how much space you have for the small table.
If your small kitchen is L shaped you will have a number of different choices. Just remember to do the math. You do not want a table measuring six feet in a space that measure seven feet. The table may fit, but besides looking totally out of place, getting to the seats will be next to impossible. There is a basic rule that two feet is needed to comfortably reach and leave the table regardless of its style. If the measurements are square, such as 6x6 feet, you can opt for a small round or square table. If the measurements are rectangular as in 6x8 feet, you may want to consider a table that is narrow and long. Both the bench and drop leaf styles would work well in these spaces. Just remember that both floor space and proportion are the two most important factors to keep in mind.
