Transforming tables great help to save space
Solve the deficit problem area in a standard apartment, you can, using multifunctional furniture. Transforming tables for the kitchen or living room, provides a full dining table has firmly taken place in the interior of a city apartment.

The Many Faces of the table-transformer
Coffee tables-transformers in function and purpose can be divided into:
Dining-coffee table-transformer. Folded - barely noticeable, it takes a minimum of space. It is traditionally located somewhere in the sofa-chair area, fulfilling its traditional coffee table function.
When folded, the table-transformer state takes up little space
Simple manipulations help turn unobtrusive table in the dining table
But in the unfolded state, he is transformed into a full dining table - for him is comfortable enough to accommodate 6-8 people, so there is no need to crowd the kitchen. In this case, coffee table-transformer, depending on the model, can be increased (to transform) at the same time both in width and in length and height.
There are numerous options, Transformers table that allows you to select the most suitable for you
It is very important to choose the right chair. If the coffee table does not need the chair, he alone is self-sufficient, the dining table - they are an integral part. Here the main thing - to harmoniously combined form. For example, for a square (rectangular) table should be selected, respectively, chairs with rectangular elements, and for round (oval) table - oval chairs.
When folded, some tables practically unrecognizable as the tables transformers
Furniture should be approached to each other not only in form, but stylistically
Tip! combine materials is important and right. If the table - design of glass and metal, the chairs on the wooden base to it do not fit.
Transforming tables may be made of different materials, from wood to metal
Depending on the mechanism, some tables may be expanded not completely, but to the most optimal state
Fully decomposed Transforming tables beautifully cope with the role of the guest dining room table
Coffee table - the workplace. In this case, it is not necessary to change shape countertop, increasing. Most often, the coffee table is decomposed into a kind of desk - top table top is raised only by opening the box, which is used to store office trivia - paper clips, notebooks, etc. It is important that the table took a comfortable working height. Conveniently, if the mechanism allows to fix the height of two or three positions - then it will be run as sitting on a chair and on a sofa or chair.
Lowered countertops will not attract too much attention
Due to the wide range of tables, trasformery can perfectly fit into any decor
Tip! Model with a mechanism for smooth height adjustment, thus achieving optimal conditions to work anywhere.
height adjustment mechanism will help to choose the most comfortable position for you
Internal content of the "working" table-transformer may be rich enough - niches, shelves, boxes. This is the exact embodiment of the modern concept of transformable furniture - mobile, light and compact, which is ready at any time to change not only their functional purpose, but also to efficiently and effectively meet the new challenges.
Some tables transformers is an excellent example of engineering
Coffee table-storage system. In this case, the table consists of a table top, and several boxes are put forward by the rotation about a common axis. In such a case could be made as a separate box, and uncover all the drawers simultaneously.
Rotary tables, as well as usual can be of different shapes
Coffee table convertible: intricacies of design
The main element in the table-transformer - a device by which the table can be decomposed into two or three movements and effortlessly.
Good mechanism allows you to quickly and easily perform all types of transformation with table
This mechanism can be very simple (for example, a table with inserts), and can be quite complex (auto transformers). It is due to the complexity of the mechanism, which provides simultaneous change in height and a table area, the cost of such models is significantly higher than that of conventional folding (gathering) tables.
A variety of mechanisms will help to choose the best option between the price of the product functionality and Hugo
The mechanism provides a countertop from one state to another, as well as its support
Of principal operating conditions - the presence of a reliable framework that can withstand multiple cycles of folding / unfolding. The best option - the metal, although well proven and housing made of solid wood. But the tables in which a part of the mechanism consists of plastic parts, it is better not to buy - plastic wears out quickly, so the table will last a long time under extreme stresses. However, if the transformation will not occur often, then this option is acceptable.
Reliable framework will provide a long service Transforming tables
Choosing tables transformers pay attention to the materials, it combines
The second aspect - table legs (supports) must have a safety margin to withstand the increasing load when unfolded. For example, for glass table-transformer required metal substrate - glass itself is quite heavy stuff, and if you add to it the burden of serving, you get a very solid weight.
Glass leg for a coffee table-transformer - the perfect solution
Classically made of wood table convertible will never be a bad option
Transforming tables: types and characteristics
The particular type of transformer-section depends on numerous factors, ranging from general style room where it will be installed and ending with the rate at which it will be used. In general, there are several basic types:
table with inserts. The most common type of table-transformer, it has an additional area of the table is obtained by inserting the "boards", which can be stored in podstole or, rarely, by itself, for example, in the pantry. The most mass model - sliding, she during the transformation of the top (table top) is expanded along the guide rails, which are built into the table design. And so on for these guides used as the support, set the insertion portion. General of the countertop can be placed in the center (this method is called "central extension"), at least - on the edges of the model (called "side panels")
In some models, sliding insert tables can be stored in them
with automatic mechanism. In these two tables (at least - one) additional surfaces are hidden under the main surface. Since the beginning of the movement set in motion a major countertops come everyone else, layout variation (lifting height, means joining parts countertops, etc.) depend on the particular type of mechanism. The mechanism may be a gas-lift (in this case the stroke when folding soft and smooth) or springs (such variant reliable). In addition, the spring mechanism portion is stacked in the housing, so imperceptible, but the gas-lift very noticeable.
The invisibility mechanism may be important in some interiors, and therefore may be an advantage in the selection table
tables with double decomposition. They have two surfaces are simply added to each other. Accordingly, the transformation is that the upper part simply leans back, and the resulting countertop - twice the original.
Simple unfolding safely and effectively increases the usable area
turntable. Models in which during the transformation of the basic and additional tabletops do not form a single common plane. For example, from the main worktop on metal guide can slide more. Another option that is often used in gaming coffee table, where for each sitting can nominate a mini table-top, where you can put drinks or snacks.
