  • Top highchairs for small kitchens

    When space is at a premium in your home, the thought of a highchair can send shivers down your spine! Yes, there are certainly some grand options out there, but there’s also plenty of choice for those with limited room for baby or toddler meals.

    You could be looking for an easy-to-fold, small-when-stowed highchair to pack away after each feed. Alternately, you may just be after a neat package that doesn’t have a large footprint and is compact when in use. Whichever approach works best for you, we’ve got it covered in our round-up of the 10 best space-smart highchairs...

    Finally, before you decide a thing, make sure you read our highchair buyer's guide and round-up of key highchair types on the market.

  • Concord Spin highchair, £138.99

    The Concord Spin is one clever highchair! It’s super portable and boasts that it’s the most compact highchair in the world. It has a central swivel joint, which helps it fold up to a tiny 60cm x 51cm x 8cm. It unfolds without fuss and looks funky, too.

  • Baby Bjorn Appetite highchair, £128.99

  • Ikea Antilop, £13

    The cheapest seat in the collection is by no means the least.  The complete Ikea Antilop highchair with tray only costs £13, however, if you wanted to save even more on space and cost, you can get the chair alone for £9. As you would expect from an Ikea product, the chair is easy to assemble and take apart, which is essential because it doesn't fold, but once taken apart can fit almost anywhere.

  • Scandinavian Selection No-Tray Highchair, £59

    Designed for up-to-the-table feeding (hence the no-tray name), you may have spotted this straightforward offering in certain UK restaurant chains. The reasons businesses love the No-Tray are the same as ours – it’s easy to clean, durable and light to manoeuvre. While it doesn’t fold, it can be stacked (if you need two for twins or close siblings, for example), and the footprint is just 47cm x 59cm.

  • OXO Tot Sprout highchair, £185

    A darling of the feeding world, OXO Tot, is a brand that blends beautiful form with total function. MFM’s seasoned reviewer went so far as to say the Sprout is “so beautifully made it deserves to be called a piece of furniture.” It’s easy to clean and lasts until 5 years of age because of its ability to transform into a child dining chair. While it doesn’t fold away (with those looks, you won’t want to), it is a tidy package with a modest 61cm x 48 cm footprint.

    If you’re seriously tight on space, looking to an option that’s primarily designed for travelling and meals out can open up a whole new world. The trick is to make sure it’s durable enough for frequent use, as well as small when in use and quick to pack away. The sturdy Lobster fits that bill perfectly. It has no legs to get in the way when it use and is fast to set up.
