1. South Shore Crea Collection Craft Table, White
This sewing table provides a large surface for working and as a result can also double as a cutting space.
The dimensions are 53 ½” W x 23 ½” D x 30” H and there is a lot of extra storage and shelving space for other items.
There is a centre storage drawer directly beneath the table top, which glides forward and backward with ease via metal sliders.
The drawer is partitioned to create additional organization for other items.
The desk includes five 12”x12” shelves which can be placed at whatever level you would like, to accommodate the sizes of the items you want to store.
Two modules for extra storage are also a part of the components of this desk which you can place on either side based on preference.
One of the modules has open storage, both front and back, while the other has closed storage which is accessed by a slide out door.
The colour is pretty neutral so it is not difficult to fit in to any area and the assembly required is minimal and simple.Check Today's Price on Amazon

2. Arrow Cabinet 98503 Sewnatra Sewing Cabinet, Black
This attractive and compact sewing desk is ideal for the person who does not have much space to spare or would rather not have a large sprawling desk.
This amazing desk opens out to 68-7/16″ wide x 19-5/8″ deep x 30-1/2″ tall.
Closed, it only takes up a small area with the dimensions 23-3/4″ wide x 19-5/8″ deep x 31″ tall.
How’s that for convenience?
So when you’re ready to sew you just open it up to access your sewing space, the fold it away when you’re done.
Additional features of this desk includes caster wheels for easy mobility, two trays for storage of tools and accessories, and two spindles behind the door for storing thread.
The stylish shuttered door adds character to the desk and also to your living space where it will be housed.
In my opinion this is a clever space saving solution to use and to store your sewing machine or serger.
In fact, I like the air lift mechanism which raises and lowers the machine to working height for use and also storage.
Speaking of which, to accommodate your machine, the dimensions must be around or less than 12 9/16″ front to back, 18 7/8″ wide and 13 1/8″ tall.Check Today's Price on Amazon

3. Arrow Gidget II Home Indoor Adjustable Sewing Machine Sturdy Craft Table White
I recommend this portable and foldable table also for people who have space constraints.
The dimensions are 40″ wide x 19 ¾ ” deep x 28 ¼ ” high when unfolded and ready for use.
This puts it in between the first two I just discussed.
It doesn’t have any drawers so it’s really not meant to store either the machine or the accessories.
The centre plate where the machine rests can accommodate machines with dimensions 23 ½” W x 12 ½” from front to back or less.
Below that plate is a wind up handle which you can wind up down to raise or lower the machine to a comfortable working level.
Be sure to lock the handle in place so that your machine is secure.
To fold down the machine, you want to strap the legs into place with the Velcro strap and to unfold, securely lock in place into the black slots.
This foldable table is also equipped with wheels which are only functional when it is in the folded position.
The wheels are on one side of the table and with the legs strapped into place, they form a handle on the opposite end so you can roll and transport your table.Check Today's Price on Amazon
This next option may provide a functional solution which you can use in your home even when you’re not sewing.
4. Sauder Sewing Craft Cart, Cinnamon Cherry Finish
The dimensions are 40.1 x 19.4 x 28.5 inches so it’s similar in size to the Gidget II but with storage.
It is also not completely foldable so it is a permanent furniture piece in the home.
The machine can be stored on the shelf under the table top, obscured from sight by a roll open door.
The surface can be otherwise utilized when the machine is tucked away.
The table top is made of durable Melamine which is scratch, stain and heat resistant, so you don’t have to worry about it becoming unsightly looking with repeated use.
Set on wheels, it is easy to move from one space to the next and also facilitates clean up.
Two sets of doors provide additional storage, shelving and 2 storage bins for stowing your accessories and tools.
A winning feature of the design of this sewing desk is the drop leave which can be folded up to provide additional working space.
Finally the rich cherry finish adds character to any living space.Check Today's Price on Amazon

5. Studio Designs 13362 Eclipse Hobby Sewing Center In black / White Black/White
I would recommend this sewing desk to anyone who has an appreciation for the more modern and contemporary look.
This machine also has a drop leave and so folded out the total dimensions are 60 ¼”W x 23 ¾”D x 29 ¼”H.
The drop leave (auxiliary) section is 9 ½” W x 23 ¾” D, which makes the main top surface 50 ¾” W x 23 ¾” D.
There is a centre platform section on which the machine will rest which can be lowered to cater to the base height of the machine.
Below that is a large shelf for storing items of your choosing.
The three drawers to the right provide storage for items you may want to keep out of view.
With a frame made of steel in combination with the thick 5/8” top, this desk is quite durable and should serve you well.
