20 Space-Saving Dining Tables for Your Apartment
When it comes to your home, we all know the kitchen is where it’s at. After all, it’s where you’ll find all the food and booze (and subsequently, all the people). So having a stylish and functional dining table is pretty important. You don’t even need to have a huge kitchen to make it feel welcoming. In the spirit of “good things come in small packages,” here are 20 gorgeous dining tables that all expand. They’ll fit you and stretch out to accommodate any guests visiting. We think that’s worth celebrating with a dinner party for all your friends.

Even broke college students can afford some design moments. This unfinished table changes size and it comes unfinished, so you can tap your inner DIY-self for the most modern of modern designs.
