Finding the right dining room table is often determined by space constraints. Just because your home is small doesn’t mean you have to rely on your coffee table and pillow seats as your only dining table option. Think small in order to maximize your dining space. Bistro tables (also known as pub tables) are the perfect dinette set for small homes or apartments.
The bistro table was given its name after the traditional French bistro. The Parisian bistro is traditionally a cozy, café-style setting filled with small, round tables that seat two people. A bistro restaurant is both intimate and informal, and a bistro dining table serves the same function in your kitchen.
A small bistro table in the corner of your dining room provides the perfect dining setting without a large table cramping the room. This dining table for two provides the perfect quaint space for grabbing a quick breakfast bite with your loved one or sharing a few cups of tea or coffee with a friend.
Bistro tables come in many shapes and sizes. Because they are often used in a nook as a space-saver, many bistro tables are round and seat two persons (you can, however, buy a 4-person bistro or pub table set). A common size is a 36-inch round tabletop that is around three feet tall. A square dining table for two will have similar dimensions in height, but will typically measure 30 x 30 inches on its tabletop.
It’s easy to find a bistro table that matches any dining room décor. A commonly seen bistro table is one made of glass with slate or iron accents. But a wide variety of materials are used to craft these dinette sets, and you can find one made of wood, metal, plastic, or tile—whatever suits your style!
