Coffee Tables Makes a Room

The coffee table has been a living room standard for quite a time, not just because of the popularity of hot drinks that it’s named for, but because of the pure functionality and multi-purpose aspects of the traditional coffee table design.

Placed in the centre of a room, the modest coffee table is often in the interior design ‘spotlight’ and receives continuous use through the day. So why settle for a mind-numbing design?

Picking a Coffee Table

Whether it’s the final item to be purchased in an already furnished room, or if you’re basing the whole space around it, there are a few things you may want to consider when deciding on a new coffee table.

Storage

If you notice that your current coffee table tends to fill up with bits and bobs all too quickly, try investing in a coffee table with an integrated storage drawer. Coffee tables with storage ensure quick and easy storage of items like newspapers and magazines. Lower shelves or racks are also excellent for this.

Styles And Sizes

If your living room is more on the cosy side, you may want to consider a smaller coffee table, or perhaps an expanding table – giving more surface space when you need it and less when you don’t. On the other hand, if you have excess space, then go as bold as you like. With a large coffee table, you can manage to put your feet up on it!

When you’re considering style, take a look at the theme of the room. You’ll need to find the ideal table to fit into the look you have created.

Colours and Finishes

Hardwood finishes such as oak is a great option to consider when deciding on your coffee table. There is no better finish more elegant than naturally waxed wood, and no other wood will last longer when it comes to style and strength. Wood is often stained or natural, giving the availability of just about any colour and finish possible.
