Tables can take up a lot of room in small apartments and dorm rooms, but they’re an essential dining and study tool that most people can’t live without. Instead of using bulky, permanently-placed tables, why not try these multipurpose folding tables and save a ton of square footage?
1. Camco Bamboo Folding Table
Similar to Beckworth & Co.’s bamboo folding table, this adjustable height Camco Table uses a folding design that allows the table to become impossibly small and portable.
When snuggled in its carrying case, the table is only 26 inches wide and weighs just nine pounds. Its bamboo top and thicker metal frame give it an industrial look, and its price point isn’t too bad either.

3. Beckworth & Co. Bamboo Folding Table
What would you do with a table you could fit in a carrying case? Beckworth & Co. wanted to find out, so they designed their Bamboo Folding Table.

6. Cosco Dorell Square Table
One of my least favorite parts of using a folding table is locking it into place. I always pinch my fingers! Thankfully, Cosco’s Square Folding Table has pinch-free hinges and hassle-free setup.

The table transports from place to place easily; a handle can be found just underneath. The height adjustable Office Star Resin Table is great for large events, but it can also make a great makeshift dining table when needed.
