No dining room? No problem! Winsome’s Suzanne Kitchen Set is a completely mobile drop-leaf dining table that comes with seating for two, but add a couple of stools, and you could reasonably accommodate four.

Suzanne, when not in use as a dining table, functions much like a kitchen cart; two drawers give you storage options for dinnerware or kitchen supplies. Suzanne’s transitional style fits into most homes and is great for small spaces like studio apartments.

As they say, two drop-leaves are better than one. Nathan James’ Rustic Console Table is the everyman’s expandable table. Its neutral aesthetic allows it to blend in with a variety of décor schemes, including modern and traditional.

Your floors will stay protected thanks to the included self-adhesive furniture pads for the table’s feet.

This Folding Drop Leaf Dining Table is one of the most attractive, yet most budget-friendly available. Made from scratch-resistant MDF, the table seats up to four people when the leaf is raised.

An open shelf underneath the table gives users space for a small dining set or decorations. At just under $80, it’s a great option for those with a lower budget who want a nice dining table or a setup for game night.

You may have seen other drop leaf dining tables where 2/3 of the surface area is solid construction, but the Antella Dining Table gives you more by giving you less.

Half of the table folds down and out of the way, leaving only a half-circle table surface for when you’re dining alone (or with a friend). Its rich brick red design is both fashionable and functional; it’s the perfect table for small spaces!

Ikea is well-known for their innovation and affordable prices, but did you know they sold this amazing drop leaf dining table? I didn’t!

The Applaro Table‘s organic design gives you rich wood tones while providing you with a 3-in-1 dining experience. You can fold both sides completely down, leave one side up, or put both sides up. Not only is it a bargain, but it’s also borderline genius.

This classic Winsome Round Drop Leaf Table has sturdy solid-wood construction and a collapsible design. With both leaves out, the circular table seats four.

Put down one leaf, and the table can stand against a wall, making it great for a breakfast bar. With both leaves down, it’s only a few inches wide, and can slip into a cupboard for easy storage.

West Elm has some serious style. Their Box Frame Drop Leaf Dining Table is something to behold. Made of solid wood on a bronze-finished steel frame, this table will last you for years and years.

Both sides fold up to become a six-seater dining table when you have company. After your friends and family are done ooh-ing and ahh-ing over your gorgeous table, simply fold down the sides to transform it back to a two-seater.

A twist on the classic drop-leaf style, this table folds down laterally to make a narrow console table when not in use. When fully extended, the table can comfortably seat six; when folded down, it makes a foot-wide shelf to stand against a wall and use for everyday storage.

The weathered grey finish and white legs give the Driness Drop Leaf Table from Holly & Martina sleek modern look.

Drop leaf tables allow you to entertain without taking up permanent floor space in your home. Take the Round Drop Leaf Table from International Concepts for example. It has not one, but two drop leaves.

This space-saving feature makes it easy to clean up after dinner and takes only seconds to use. East West’s table is made entirely of solid wood for a classic finish and sturdy design.

You only have to take a quick glance to determine that this table is sturdy as heck. What’s unique about the Cineline Dining Table, aside from its superior quality and glistening chrome frame, is that the table legs are hidden when the leaves are not in use.

They only appear when you expand the table, creating the illusion that the smaller table is one solid piece. I’m utterly in love with this design!
