A convertible coffee table is a great option for people with space restrictions like a small kitchen or lack of a dining room. It is ideal for someone who lives in a studio apartment. Some fancy ones can transform from a coffee table to an elegant glass topped dining table for when you have company while others that have cleverly hidden stools that come away from the table base for dining. A good example is the dual purpose bamboo Convertible Table designed by the Danish designer Tom Rossau. It changes from a coffee unit to a 10 person dining table. The convertible tables can function as workstations, storage spaces, meal tables or simply flat surfaces for your drink or books while you lounge on the sofa. And all this can be achieved just by adjusting the height of the lift top.
One of these tables is called a coffee table, you can serve coffee in this table but its function does not end there. You can also serve food on it, decorate if you want and put some magazines on it. You can use it like a normal table their only difference is their height and the room in which they are assigned. Coffee tables are usually found in the living space of your house for one of its uses is to be the center of social gatherings. Also this table is the first table that guest usually notice when they enter your living room.
After you have figured out that the best coffee table shape to fit your room is a square coffee table, do not forget to consider what would be the best material for this frequently utilized piece of furniture. Consider the following: How will you use it- Practically speaking, the use of your square coffee table will ultimately determine what material you should choose. Some materials are more solid and durable while others are used for the sole purpose of being inexpensive and more affordable, though may or may not last as long as you would like. Once you figure out what the most common use of your table will be, match that use to the material that is strong enough and durable enough to handle it.
Common Solid Material- Wood is typically the material of choice. Wood tables are available in a plethora of painted and stained finishes and have the beautiful appeal of wood grain lines while also being very durable. Wood is still at risk for warping, however, but faithful polishing and a controlled environment that is not too dry will help prevent it. Plastic laminate finishes are still available on wood coffee tables to protect from water rings but others will be coated multiple times with a clear wax. This finish may still be subject to water stains, so invest in coffee table coasters if you plan on keeping your table water ring and stain free over the years. If any chips, cracks, or gouges occur, home stores and home improvement stores carry products that will either disguise or completely fix the imperfection. You may spend a little more money; but overall, wood is a practical choice that will last.
