The RV industry seems to be an inspiration for tiny houses. From trailer foundations to slideouts, campers and trailers and their space-saving techniques have helped tiny houses flourish. The RV table, once a clumsy beast, has now been streamlined to accommodate various configurations. For example, nüCamp’s updated T@B camper no longer has an unwieldly table that collapses down. The new table is a small, swivel device that can be used for dining or work.
Tiny house tables and desks have to do double or even triple duty. They are workspaces, eating places, prep surfaces and impromptu storage areas. Having one that can rotate out of the way or swivel up or down to various heights allows a tiny house owner to cut down on the number of furniture that comes into their home.
Here are five simple (and affordable) swiveling tables that can work in a tiny house.
Lagun RV Table Mount
This design is quickly being adopted into various RVs and campers (and even boats). The Lagun is a practical design that spins, flips and breaks down easily. Since it’s just a rotating table leg, any type of table top can be added. The entire leg mounts to any vertical surface and is made of anodized aluminum.
Garelick/Eez-In Pedestal Table
If you need a pedestal table that can be adjusted for height, the Garelick/Eez-In table base has a nautical style. Primarily used on boats, the table base can be attached to the floor and locks into any height from 14.5 inches to 29.5 inches. Any type of table top can be added to the base.
Madeline Adjustable Height Pub Table
This stylish little table is adjustable up to 36 inches and also swivels 360 degrees. The top is made of wood and the polished chrome base adds a more contemporary look to a tiny house.
Tangkula Adjustable Laptop Desk
The Tangkula table is more for tiny house owners who need a work surface. While the top can be adjusted to hold a laptop and Bluetooth mouse, it also lies flat to be used as an eating surface. The laptop desk is adjustable from 28 inches to 37 inches.
Puluomis Round Bar Table
This simple bar table has a solid base that doesn’t need to be attached to the floor. Made of chrome with various colored tops, this adjustable table also swivels 360 degrees. It adjusts from 27.5 inches to 35.8 inches and comes with a two year warranty.
Alias Adjustable Bistro Table
While this table by CB2 is a lot more expensive than the others, this well-made and strong bistro table will last for decades. Made of cast iron and acacia wood, it lifts and lowers from coffee table to kitchen bistro with the turn of a key.
