A drop leaf table is going to be one of the most sophisticated folding tables that you can find. It's good enough to be a part of your everyday decor. It's really a must have for small apartments, or even eat in kitchens.

One thing that you may want to consider is making sure that your drop leaf table and chairs really work together. For instance if you had more of a country style of end table then this can be painted as well as feature wood materials. You might just want to go with traditional style Windsor chair. This works better if you just have two chairs. This is going to be one of the more expensive chair sets that you can go with. It's also going to be one of the most casual and classic at the same time. The one disadvantage to this is that these chairs are difficult to store. However, you may be able to find these at thrift stores just because they are so common which can save you a lot of money. Then just push it up against the wall and display a chair on either side of it to really maximize your floor plan.

One style of a drop leaf table with chairs that's really come onto the scene lately is going to be a more sophisticated mission style. This can focus a lot on clean lines. It can even have simple folding chairs with it. You can pull this out from the wall and it can seat about four people. In this case, you might want to find pieces with rollers or that are quite light weight so that you can really store it completely out of sight when not in use. This is going to be a natural wood so it's also going to be one of the more expensive options.

If you really want more of a contemporary look then try to go with a wall mounted drop leaf table. This can just fold up when not in use. You might just want the same color as your wall color so it isn't too distracting. This can be a DIY project, although you will need to make sure that it is quite stable.

You can also go for more of an antique drop leaf table. This is something that you can find a lot of in thrift stores. This can even be used as a taller end table when not in use. In fact you could even use this as a sofa table because it is so high. For this option it's really going to be better if you just think of it as a table for holiday use. This is definitely going to be more sophisticated than just a basic card table and it's also going to be something that can be a family heirloom but you can just use it in new ways.

If you're really looking for a small drop leaf table then you can find versions that are really just the size of end tables, although they really do need to be a little bit higher. This can give you tons of options for storage. It's also going to be one of your least expensive options, although you won't really have a lot of say in where you put the chairs. In this case, you might just want to go for accent chairs that can work as part of your everyday living room decor. This allows you to get multiple functions in one space.
