Despite being labeled under categories like dinner, coffee, breakfast, work, etc., tables are pretty much a counter where you do varieties of work. In a modest home where you have a limited area, to begin with, using multifunctional tables is a cost-effective as well as interior-wise smart move.
Take an adjustable height coffee table for example. Its base support is constructed as such that you can change how high the tabletop goes. Similarly, with many other models, you can lift and extend the top to create more work surface and attach the flaps or leaves to increase the counter space on the table.
With adjustable height, coffee tables can be converted into a breakfast or dining setting as well as laptop stand or work desk. The mechanism is usually easy enough to control, with a knob or a lever available to set the height.
You have many options to pick from when it comes to the tabletop. It could be colored stones, slate panels, metal frames, wood, glass, pine finishes, lacquer, etc. Some models also come with a remote control to take care of the height adjustment without you having to put manual force into it.
While most adjustable height coffee tables give you the option to change the level at which the counter is set, some also offer you different levels, so that you end up having more than one bar on the same model. You can use such tables as a laptop or computer stand as needed.
The market does offer custom designs. Although, if you are looking to personalize a specific product as per your preferences, make sure you pick a product that is lightweight. Choose wheels and casters if you plan to move the table from one room to another too often.
