Using a drop leaf table as your kitchen or breakfast table, entry console, sofa table, or even desk gives you maximum flexibility. Keep your table’s leaves dropped to save space, and fold them out only when needed. You can also fold out just one leaf while keeping the other leaf dropped flush against a wall. Drop leaf tables also expand easily because the leaves are permanently attached. The ability to use a piece of furniture in a variety of rooms and with a variety of uses makes the solid wood investment well worth it.
