Folding table for the guestOther:
variants A transformable table is able to literally transform a room. With the help of a folding table it is possible to create so-called functional floating zones.
You can quickly make a dining room from the living room, it is enough just to lay out the table and instead of a living room you will get a full dining room.
All folding tables can be divided into three groups. Each group has its own characteristics, as well as advantages and disadvantages.
- The dining table is considered the best option for a living room with a small area. The modern folding table in the folded state takes several times less space than in the unfolded form. Collect it and set it to receive guests or lunch can be in a few minutes.
- Coffee table is quite an original option, which can be used not only for tea drinking, reception of guests, but also for work. Such a table perfectly fits into any interior.
- A table that unfolds like a book. This kind of table was widely produced in the USSR and now it has not lost its relevance due to the ease of assembly and low cost. Regardless of which type of folding table you choose, it should be similar to the general style of the living room.
But regardless of the type of folding table for the living room, it must be matched to the general style of the interior.
If the table does not advise the general style of all furniture in the living room and in general the whole interior - this will show the bad taste of a person. Also it is necessary to consider what material the table is made of, if a glass or wooden table is placed in a living room, made in a classical style, it will look normal. But in the living room, made in the style of high-tech wooden will look, at least, ridiculous.

To expand such a table, you should lift the two halves of the countertop, first one then the second and fix them with the legs.

- Table-cabinet, such a piece of furniture is rare, but, nevertheless, some companies are engaged in the production of such products. This closet has an end or side surface, it is fixed with a foot and practically a full table is ready.
- There are really fantastic projects that can also be realized, for example, a door-table, an interior door with the help of cunning transformation systems can be installed horizontally in the doorway and also, thus, a kind of table for two persons.
There are similar hybrid tables, but not rectangular or square, but round. For example, an option that was a small coffee table.
