What is Transforming Furniture

Transforming furniture is a term used to describe any furniture which is normally used for one purpose but can also be transformed into furniture used for another purpose.
For example a sofa cum bed is something which can be used as a sofa for seating purpose when closed and when opened can be transformed into a bed for sleeping purpose.
Similarly, a wall mirror, when pulled down, if transforms into a table is regarded as transforming furniture.

Usage of Transforming Furniture

Transforming furniture is mostly used when you have limitation of space. If the space in your room is limited and you have more needs than the available space can properly account for, then you can utilise concepts like sofa cum bed. For example, if you do not have space for an extra guest room in your house but you have guests visiting, then a sofa cum bed, placed in the living room, can help you accommodate your guests in your living room itself.
If you are living in shared accommodation like a PG (paying guest) or a college dorm, transforming furniture can help students manage their individual space better for example a study cum coffee table or a study table which when pulled can transform bigger into a dining table.

Where to find Transforming Furniture

With apartment living especially in high rise buildings and the cost of land going up in urban surroundings, the demand for transforming furniture has found a foothold in working professionals.
When you are living in a studio apartment, you will almost inadvertently find yourself in need of better space management. When you are looking to purchase transforming or convertible furniture, you may find that while its popularity has grown, it is not that readily available.
While you can easily find simple transforming furniture like sofa cum bed but anything more than that, you shall need to place a custom order. For that, it is best to find a dealer who understands the nitty gritty required, the techniques and modern mechanisms available to deliver such furniture.
Best interior designers in delhi as well as good furniture designers are normally able to ascertain your space limitations as well as the kind of furniture that can make your room look spatial while delivering on your needs.

Transforming Furniture has a lot of advantages but there are some disadvantages as well.
  1. If you already are using the furniture very regularly for one purpose, then it becomes difficult to convert that same furniture into something else for example, when you are using a wall dining table regularly, then you tend to leave your files, computer, plates etc on it. As such, it becomes a tedious task to remove the plates every time and place the table back into the wall.
  2.  Another disadvantage is it is quite a tedious task and at times strenuous to convert a furniture for another purpose.

Whatever the use, the efficacy of transforming furniture is something, the modern world has been quite accepting in recent times.
