Kids Table & Chair Inspiration And Transitioning From Small To Large

A kids table and chair set is an absolutely essential item for a house full of children!

From toddler years to becoming a teenager, they will use it all of the time… for hours of drawing, homework, kid’s dinners and playtime. It’s a constant hub of activity and keeps them away from the kitchen table which is my zone!

When it comes to choosing a desk and chairs, it’s important to think about size and style.

Does one size fit all? Will your toddler and your six-year-old fit the same table height?

We’ve had a little desk with vintage chairs and a mini bench in our home since the children were very little. The desk has been the perfect height for them since they were 1-year-old, is still used by my seven-year-old, and I think will probably be fine until he’s eight or even nine!

The desk is 53 cm high x 86 cm wide and the chairs are 30 cm high. The additional bench is 27 cm high and both have done the trick for a long while. However, as the children have grown they’ve asked for a desk in their bedroom and it seems now is the right time to move to a larger size.

So, on the quest for a desk I’ve rounded up the best from Temple & Webster which has a wide range of kids table and chair styles to suit any décor.

These are split into Small Kid’s Tables and Large Kids Desks based on the average size of my clan.
