Delia contacted us interested in transformable solutions for her new appartment. Here’s how she managed to optimize the kitchen’s space and make it as welcoming as she wanted.
At the end of September Delia moved to Milan, to a new apartment in which she no longer had the open space she was used to, but a moderate kitchen area.
Delia contacted us in August, interested in transformable solutions that would allow her to optimize the available space. She wanted a table that made the kitchen more cosy and welcoming, where she could share a breakfast or eat lunch with her husband. She aimed specifically at retractable systems, in order to hide the table in a standard drawer of the kitchen cabinet and use it only when necessary.
We put her in contact with a local hardware store, an official dealer of our products. Atim uses an extensive sales network, with resellers spread throughout Italy and in over 50 countries around the world. With their support, Delia chose and purchased the Transformabile Lunch and created a table exactly as she wanted: using colors and materials that complement her kitchen’s furniture.
“My idea of using the Lunch solution is one of the things that gave me most satisfaction in the renovation of the apartment we moved to. I bought Atim’s mechanism from the dealer that was indicated to me and I found a good carpenter who understood immediately what and how I wanted the table to be done. And here is the result: the first breakfast for two in the new apartment! ” – Delia
We are happy to have contributed to making Delia’s new apartment a more welcoming and innovative space. And we wish that life in her new house in Milan will be made of moments of sharing and of happiness around the table.

Those who only have a few square meters available, fear not! Sometimes a single corner and the right desk are enough to create the perfect home office
Working from home has now become a widespread need among the most diverse sectors.
It certainly has its advantages, but to do it well it is important to have a dedicated space and, above all, to choose the solutions that suit your needs accordingly, both in moments of concentration and of leisure.
Those who have only a few square meters available must not fear! Here we will show how sometimes a corner is enough to create the perfect home office, a functional and comfortable space, due to space-saving furniture solutions that combine design, aesthetics and practicality.
Here is a list of pull-out tables and fold-away desks perfect for setting up the home office in a small house:
Concealed solutions: pull your desk out of a drawer
Have you ever thought about hiding a table in a drawer? The Lunch +39 system allows you to easily extract a 70 cm long table from a drawer compartment, giving more functionality to spaces of limited size. Lunch +39 can be installed in furniture with a minimum depth of 39 cm, normally present in the living room, bedroom or kid’s bedroom.
Once you have finished using it, simply return the top to the drawer compartment and make room for other activities.
Even a 39cm-deep shelf can contain a pull-out table suitable for creating a space-saving home office. With the Mensola T-Able +39 shelf you can get a desk of considerable size (135cm x 115cm) with a slightly adjustable height, thanks to its telescopic leg.
Its light and easy-to-handle structure, made of aluminum, guarantees resistance and stability to the table, capable of supporting up to 100kg evenly distributed on its surface. Here you can really place all the material you need to work well from home.
Increase privacy with a workstation that you pull out from tha wardrobe
When we integrate the home office into an environment, it may be necessary to obtain more privacy to ensure one’s concentration. In this case, even the wardrobe door can act as a movable wall, which separates without dividing.
Evolution is a system designed to take advantage of the use of the furniture door, allowing the extraction of a medium or large table from a cabinet. Available in different versions (Evolution, Evolution XL, Evolution +39, Evolution XL +39), this solution adapts perfectly to the different requirements of each project.
Evolution: the workstation hidden in the wardrobe
Use the internal compartments to keep objects within reach
No matter how large or how small, a perfect home office often requires one or more storage compartments where to keep magazines, books, documents, small objects of all sorts.
With Desk, simply open the flap door of your cabinet and voilà! Turn the door into your working table while, at the same time, you use the furniture’s internal compartment to keep all the necessary material to carry out your work.
The same concept applies to Homework, system for a folding 1-meter-long desk, which withstands up to 40kg thanks to the strength of the aluminum guides with which the mechanism is made.
Flush-to-top solutions: how to increase existing work surfaces
You can also choose to increase the worktops already available by adding a pull-out flush-to-top solution. With the Oplà mechanism it’s possible to extract an extra work surface that is kept hidden in a drawer compartment. When necessary, a few movements are enough to take the top out and position it flush with the shelf above, expanding its surface.
For those who want maximum elegance and design, the Oplà Folding +39 version keeps the mechanism completely hidden even with the shelf pulled out.

Create your laundry area inside the bathroom with the right furniture!
The bathroom often becomes the room par excellence in which to create a laundry area. You can create different tricks to keep everything in order, aesthetically pleasing and, at the same time, practical. One idea is to hide appliances, detergents, laundry baskets and ironing boards inside a wardrobe or cabinet.
To make the most of the available space, opt for transformable solutions, such as Prua Short, retractable ironing board that remains hidden in a small drawer, with a minimum depth of only 45cm, and ready for use whenever it’s necessary.
A dedicated laundry corner in the corridor, an unusual but very functional solution
A built-in wardrobe or a dedicated piece of furniture is enough to create a practical laundry room in a passage area. In this case, even more than in others, concealed solutions tend to look aesthetically better. It is possible insert the various appliances in a single wardrobe, including a folding or rotating ironing board, which comes out only when it’s needed.
A laundry room in the utility room, perhaps the most desired solution
This could be the perfect room for both storing supplies as well as the laundry room items. Over the washing machine you can put shelves and place detergents. Shelves and drawers will serve to keep everything close at hand and organized, especially if the space is limited.
And do remember to install a laundry basket.
With Basket, solution with a complementary pull-out shelf, you gain an additional worktop to place clean clothes before hanging them.
The laundry room in the kitchen: with the right furniture, the laundry area fits even here!
Although it seems the least suitable place, a laundry corner can also be organized in the kitchen, it only takes choosing the right furniture. You can hide the washing machine and dryer with a plasterboard wall, or make them fit into equipped columns like the refrigerator and pantries. The important thing is to integrate the laundry with the look of the kitchen and turn it into a hidden service space.
In this case too, concealed solutions are the most successful choice: Prua, which requires a drawer with the same depths as those of a standard kitchen, perfectly matches your need for order and functionality.
