A coffee table is primarily a Living Room Furniture and any living room without it is like a model without makeup, undone. Just as makeup is one important element that completes the look, so also can the ideal coffee table. This piece of furniture serves multiple purposes ranging from completing a look, to supporting beverages, storing magazines or books to displaying decorative items. But in order to lay your hands on the perfect coffee table you need to ask yourself, which style will best suit your room? There are multiple options to keep in mind before going ahead with the purchase. Should you pick a modern metallic one with a glass table top or a traditional wooden one with carved wooden table legs. Also, when it comes to shape, what should be the ideal shape of the coffee table: should it be square,rectangular or round? The option of plenty can at times be more overwhelming than helpful. Our top 4 picks will help smash the endless spiral of decisions and guide you in the route of bringing home that ideal coffee table.
Budget: The price range for a coffee table can start from being extremely budget friendly to being ultra-expensive. Draw your budget and stick to it. However, you can always bend a little on your budget if something fancy really catches your attention.
Shape: As you outline the space for your living area, try to visualize the best furniture shape for the area. Do you have a large living room or a small one? If you have kids or pets at home, it is ideal to go for an oval or round coffee table. Unlike the square or rectangular ones, these have curved edges which prevents any injuries should anyone accidentally trip and hit himself. A rounded one also gives extra room to walk past. However, if you have a big apartment and a square or rectangular coffee table had always been on your bucket list, don’t think twice.
Functionality: Another key factor is to understand the primary use of the furniture. Will it be used just to hold beverages or also provide storage? If storage is your primary concern, how much storage do you need? Modern day coffee tables come with drawers or shelves to hold everything from magazines to kids’ toys and more. While choosing a table which covers all your storage needs, don’t miss to make sure that it holds drinks and plates easily. That is why it was designed in the first place, right?
Material: When it comes to materials, coffee tables can come in a vast range of variety. You’ll come across tables made of metal, wood or even glass combined with steel or brass. If you seek for a more traditional look, you have furniture made of oak, cherry, walnut or maple to choose from.
While selecting a specific material, keep in mind if it will blend well with the existing décor of the room where the coffee table will be placed.
