Some of the common uses for foldout tables are dining, coffee breaks, doing homework, playing cards and making crafts. Some people also use them as picnic tables for dining outdoors.
Foldout tables are good options for dining purposes. Whether as a main dining table or as a coffee or breakfast table, they are useful in small spaces, as they can be used and stored as required. They are also good as an add-on to a main table, for when there are more people. Folding tables work well for outdoor use, either as picnic tables or as patio or lawn furniture. They are easy to move back indoors or into storage when desired.
Light tables with plastic tops are useful for recreational purpose, such as playing board games, or make good study tables for young children. Plastic or laminate surfaces are easy to clean and are waterproof. More ornate folding tables work for special ceremonies, to hold objects such as candles, lamps and decorations. Foldout tables with storage shelves or baskets underneath are good work surfaces for craft or DIY projects for the home or in schools. Small folding tables can be placed directly in front of guests so that light snacks and drinks are within easy reach.
