The Multi-Talented Lift Top Coffee Table

When looking for innovative decorating ideas for the lounge room you can’t go past the multi-functional innovation that has gone into a lift top coffee table. When these coffee tables are seen in their coffee table mode they look like a typical coffee table, the range of styles and wood used to manufacture them are similar to your average wooden coffee table.

The secret with these types of coffee tables is under the table-top which is set on hinges that allow the top to lift up to the height of a standard dining table. Although you probably wouldn’t use the table as your main dining table, they make a great additional table if you find there is not enough room for everyone to sit down when guests come for dinner.

Alternatively you can use the coffee table when it is in the unfolded position as a desk, giving you a makeshift work space that can be quickly folded away when you are finished.

The big bonus with this type of coffee table is that even when it has been converted to the dining table height configuration you don’t lose any of the storage space. With some models the cavity reaches all the way to the ground resembling a trunk giving you a huge amount of storage space. Others are set on legs which reduce the space somewhat but give them a more elegant look.

The lift table mechanism that operates the raising and lowering of the table height is safe to use and quite sturdy. There should be little possibility of sustaining injury during its operation.

When buying one of these tables it pays to look for one that has a smoothly operating lift mechanism after all, it is the lift process that gives these tables the edge over other types so you want it to be easy to use.

Discovering fabulous looking furniture items that contain added functionality such as the lift top coffee table gives you is an absolute bonus. Pieces made by notable furniture companies such as Klaussner, Jofran and Lane in materials like cherry, oak or glass will help give your lounge room area a an injection of style plus functionality.
