Who’s with me on pockets in dresses being the best thing since sliced bread. They’re incredibly practical, aren’t they? From carrying your phone, a tissue or two for those runny noses, to just being able to pop out for that essential pint of milk without having to take your bag. I can never understand why ALL clothes don’t have pockets as standard. The same can be said for tables and drawers. Tables are without a doubt the workhorses in our homes. And with the addition of a drawer or two, they literally become more than just a surface to eat off.
Practical Tables With Drawers & Small Space Living
Let’s face it tables with drawers provide us with the versatility to store and organise our homes and by doing so enhance how we live and use our spaces.
Space Saving Storage
Drawers like pockets don’t have to be on the large size either. Just roomy enough to be able to store your everyday dining essentials such as cutlery, placemats and napkins. Just think, everything in one place for ease of use. It has its appeal don’t you think? It might also encourage those of you with tables to use them more rather than tv dinners on the sofa.
Of course, draws (like pockets) are super practical. Storing items close to hand or being able to clear the decks when you have unexpected visitors is also useful don’t you think?
Working From Home…
With so many of us working from home, our kitchen/dining tables often double up as our workplace too. In fact, I’m sitting at mine writing this post. The thought of being able to store away the detriment of my paperwork, notebooks and pens in one swoop is appealing. Considering we often end up moving up the other end to eat due to my having taken up half the table a kitchen table with drawers would be a dream come true. Or in my Husbands case, a huge relief!
Whilst my working at the kitchen table is through choice as I do have a home office, there are days when being closer to the kettle means more coffee has its appeal. I know a few people who do the same. So it’s not uncommon for home workers to stake out their kitchens.
Some of you may not have the choice of opting between a functional office and your dining/kitchen spaces even your living room coffee tables may mean that this invaluable surface area is your only option. A drawer or two would definitely help with keeping it organised.
Even if you don’t work from home, you might have kids that like to do their homework at the table. Just think how practical it would be to have a drawer or two for them to store away their pens rulers and books. Everything can be put away ready in time for their tea.
Coffee Tables With Drawers
Some of you may not have
If that’s the case then hidden built in storage is even more appealing.
Marks and Spencers have just bought out a new range of furniture that ensures you can get the best out of your square footage. This coffee table is sleek enough to be functional and with the added bonus of having pull out drawers either end of the table. Which, when you think of it, if space is tight you’ll probably have the sofa in front with the table lengthways so pull out drawers either end is more practical.
Another great coffee come storage table is this one from John Lewis with its slatted sliding doors which allows easy access.
Or if you’re truly wanting to combine work and play, this coffee table by Vox is completely designed for both.
So whose with me on there being more practical tables with drawers? Fingers crossed, like dresses with pockets, we will be seeing more in the future with our furniture design.
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
