Metal table: advantages, disadvantages, scope and design features (28 photos)


Furniture is not the most durable thing in the world. Wood shatters, plastic peels off and loses its presentation, glass cracks. To avoid this, you can purchase a metal table - in certain situations such a decision is not only fully justified, but also preferable.




Advantages and disadvantages

Everything has its advantages, and metal tables are no exception:

  • Persistence The metal is insensitive to almost nothing - it does not bother neither a sharp change in temperature, nor aggressive chemical compounds, nor mechanical damage. Therefore, the metal variant is the best table for the street or the kitchen, since no weather conditions, no spilled juice will harm it.
  • Durability. The metal is reliable and can serve faithfully for many years - it will not crack, it will not crack, and with proper care it is not even afraid of rust.
  • Strength. It is almost impossible to damage the forged table, bend the metal frame, scratch the metal coating, which is very helpful during transportation, and it is also useful in everyday life.
  • Aesthetics. Metal is a beautiful material, especially if you make it right. A wrought-iron table can be a real interior decoration in a classic style, and a kitchen table with a stainless steel worktop fits perfectly into the high-tech style. Even the garden tables made of metal are excellent. The main thing - to make sure that they fit into the environment.
  • Variability. Metal tables can be found for every taste and wallet. Any design, any design - there are folding tables, desks, sliding tables and many, many others. The choice is huge.




But nothing is perfect, and metal constructions are no exception:

  • Heaviness The concrete slab can withstand the heaviest table for the kitchen, but wooden floors in a wooden house can also sink. In addition, the weight complicates transportation - will have to try to bring the table into the room.
  • Sharp legs. Metal is difficult to process so that it does not scratch the surface. Table legs can leave unpleasant scratches on the new linoleum or spoil the old favorite parquet, if not in advance to equip them with special rubber linings.
  • The need for care. Despite resistance, the metal has a weakness - it does not tolerate high humidity. Therefore, it is necessary to ensure that paint does not peel off and rust does not appear - street tables for giving need it more than others, especially if the holiday village is in a wet region.

Depending on the situation, the disadvantages may outweigh the advantages, and vice versa.



Application area

  • Metal table on wheels. An excellent solution for people who prefer the classic lifestyle, where dishes are served in the dining room on the serving table. Metal wheels on wheels are the most appropriate - they are light enough (usually a part of the structure is made hollow) and at the same time reliable, so that they can be used safely.
  • Sliding metal table. It can be used in any small rooms, most of the time being in the folded state somewhere in the corner. When a large tabletop is required, it can be easily pushed to the required size.

  • Butterfly. An adjustable table that can look like a narrow bollard, like a small table with half a table top and a full-fledged dining table. Even a child will cope with it, in order to expand it, it is enough to lift the side table-tops, which in a collapsed state simply hang down on the sides. Support them with special props and use.
  • Demountable. A simple option that looks like a tabletop, to which are attached two legs. When folded, the whole structure looks flat. In the unfolded - you can use it as a real dining table.

Any transformer - no matter whether it is collapsible or not - is suitable for small rooms and for various tasks. When folded, you can put something on it, read it or have a quiet lunch alone, but it is necessary that it becomes necessary - and it will be transformed into a full table that can be used by several people.
