Because of the existing life rhythm, the peace of mind has ceased to be commonplace. The dwelling framework is repeatedly narrowed, since it is advantageous and practical to live in a small apartment with one or two rooms. Often, in such a housing, the kitchen and bone rooms are united, bedrooms and a working office. Owners of such apartments are trying to save space as much as possible. To this end, it is usually reduced by the number of household items, including furniture, to a minimum amount.
Thank you for the development of technologies Recently, the problem was partially solved. Designers to meet the needs of the market, furniture objects were created, which have the ability to transform. At the expense of such a solution in the rooms there is much more free space. The most popular and most commonly used furniture of steel Table transformers. When more space is required, the table remains folded. When you need a big surface, for example, if a large company is going at home, it is laid out.
This modification is distinguished by increased functionality, but a higher price. The transformer table is a special model that is distinguished by the opportunity to transform in accordance with the needs of the owner. For example, some options can be changed in height, tilt under the desired angle and otherwise change the parameters in accordance with the wishes of the owners.
Thus, the compact and mobile bedside table transformer is a really useful piece of furniture. The modular rack and the emblem can go to it.
The designs under consideration are presented on the market in a huge number of variations: with legs or wheels, sliding or folding and so on.
Depending on the material of the manufacture, the following types of transformer tables are distinguished:
- Metal furniture. Created from this material design distinguishes rigor and some refinement of the appearance. Since this is a transformer table, it can also be characterized as a piece of furniture, which allows you to save free space, involving production in different forms and sizes. Also, the construction of metal does not require much care. There are such models and disadvantages – weighs a lot of construction, therefore, when cleaning or permutation, it will be easily moved or almost impossible.
- Vine or rattan. The table may have a wicker structure, but they make such models only by request. This is an extra plus in terms of the choice of shapes and sizes, but the cost of them will be slightly higher. At the same time, the furniture from the vine or rattan will be distinguished by the originality and unpretentiousness in care.
- Plastic variations. Minus such a design – fragility. Moreover, in the event of a breakage, it is not possible to restore it, it is impossible to even replace broken parts. Therefore, the service life of plastic transformers is small.
- Ledp. Such models are the cheapest, so quite common among buyers. The material includes a certain amount of compressed chips with a resin. The design of LDSP does not differ in reliability, so it is also quite brittle and fragile.
- Natural wood goods. Such a model is perfect for those who prefer classic style – a natural pattern of a tree perfectly in it will fit. Very stylish looks wooden table wenge. The object of wood furniture will be an expensive and massive view. With it, you can decorate any room. However, it is important that you need to handle it very carefully and care with the means without chemicals.
- Glass Transformer Table. Modification is expensive and whimsical in care. Compensate such disadvantages are due to charm, sophistication, magnificent appearance. If it is transparent, it will also be possible to expand the room in the visual plan. This can use matte, transparent or stained glass.
If we talk about sizes, it should be noted that the dimensions are not specified in advance. Manufacturer, realizing that every buyer needs individuals, provided an opportunity to independently choose. On average, when using a transformer table to one person, about 0.6 meters of surface is required. You can choose and longer option.
There are many species that differ from each other in size. There are transformer tables, in the design of which it is possible to change the height due to changes in the length of the legs. This option can be rightfully considered multifunctional. But if you do not need to change the height, acquire a table with such a parameter optional.
Models of transformer tables can also differ in their colors. When choosing a variation of a suitable tone, you need to remember the harmony between the common room view and individual furniture objects. That is, the furniture must be combined with the common interior of the room. In this regard, it is proposed to stop their choice on contrasting shades or vice versa, do everything in one color.
For example, if cold tones are dominated in the room, the table can be made in bright colors – blue, red, black or burgundy shades will fit. Thanks to this selection, the room “will play”. However, the most popular colors include shades of white, black, nut and coffee option. And since often the transformer table is placed to order, it remains only to order a piece of furniture with the desired color.
Transformer tables can also be manufactured in different forms.
Popular species is presented in the form of oval.
This option may be suitable if there is enough free space in the room. Also useful modification will be with small children, because the risk of hitting one of the sharp corners will be reduced. The advantage of the oval table-transformer will have an exquisite appearance and some charm in combination with statism and simplicity.
Another variety is also not standard – this is a transformer table in the form of a circle. The advantages of it are similar to the species described above. It also distinguishes elegance and uncomplication.
More standard will be a square or rectangon transformer table. The appearance of such a modification is very good and combines power and high cost. And it will be possible to arrange it in the corners of even a small room, for example, in the kitchen. Therefore, its advantage, no doubt, will be savings in the premises of free space.
Typically, the kit is standard: base, legs, guides and fasteners. Also among components can be wheels. Choose furniture with wheels or without them, solve only you.
As a rule, wheels are required if it is planned to move furniture from one place to another, from one room – to another. Therefore, it is necessary to solve this function or not, it is necessary on the basis of the availability of the appropriate need. If you wish the wheel, you can add to the finished set. However, this will entail additional cash costs. If necessary in the wheels and with their presence, the mount is carried out on the basis of each leg.
The stylistic solution of the transformer table must match the premises style.
If there is a minimalism in everything, it is better to stop your choice on metal or plastics products. Also good to style minimalism braided tables. If used in the design of light tones, it will be possible to create a cozy atmosphere, and the properly selected transforming table will organically fit into the interior, becoming a convenient and functional piece of furniture.
Pretty popular is the interior in the style of country. Some diversity in it will allow a transformer table, made of natural material. Such material can be, for example, tree, rattan, stone or metal. It is desirable that the design is massive, since airiness and refinement will give the room a ridiculous species.
If the design is used English, Japanese, French or Italian style, choosing a transformer table, it is better to follow a common style of the style, apply the design solutions of the chosen country. For example, Japan and France most often characterize the refinement of forms and lines. And England and Italy are usually characterized by more massive and static structures.
The least unpretentious seems to the Scandinavian style. It is believed that a practical transformer can be organically fit into it, if only he was combined with other objects of furniture, which will be indoors.
Also popular today are Modern and Loft styles. Furniture for them should be original, without perseverance, for example, in gloss.
Much more effectively watch transformers with decorative surfaces or details. One of the ways to decorate – the use of decoupage. This is decorating surfaces using drawings on paper or fabric. Create an original design can also be using mosaic – paintings made up of small pieces. Also popular with such an option as craklers – artificial surface composition. There are cracker varnishes for this, the main components of which are egg whites or glue. The surface is stained and up to dry, apply a varnish from above, which can be replaced by vinegar or gelatin. As a result, it turns out a tired surface with the effect of aging.
The design of the table in the end may turn out quite original. This will affect the general form of the room. General matching style and the presence of decorative elements will create harmony. Coffee tables, tables-books with drawers, butterfly tables, with swivel, sliding and folding mechanisms will look. As a wall table, it is best to choose a retractable option.
How to choose?
Before choosing a transformer table, you need to measure room dimensions. At the same time, it is better to deduct from the total area already occupied. In accordance with these calculations and you need to choose a transforming table of various sizes. The choice must be associated with the account of the characteristics of beauty and practicality. At the same time, both of these qualities must be combined. It is important to remember that an attractive appearance does not always guarantee ease of use.
Pay attention to the quality, manufacturer, manufacturing material and table. In addition, the possibility of adjusting the height, the presence of wheels, footrest and so on may be important. An important point will be the reliability of the design.
It is worth considering when choosing and an intended purpose. So, the tables can be journal, writing, dining. Do not do and exclude a transformation mechanism.
In general, make the right choice will help the accounting of desires and needs, financial opportunities and availability of free space.
