One piece of furniture that often doesn't get much attention is the coffee table. Although this piece of furniture can add functionality and style to your room sometimes it seems like more of an afterthought instead of part of a cohesive plan. It's the little things that make a room complete though so now might be a good time to take a good look at your coffee table. If it needs replaced you'll be surprised how many options you have to choose from.
Dream up all the scenarios you will be using the table for. It must be functional and fulfill the requirements of your home. Work out a budget. Although you should think long term as a good quality wooden coffee table will last a long time it's important not to get caught up in the moment and blow the budget on a designer coffee table. You can easily spend 1000s. It is possible to get some stunning cheap coffee tables if you search around. Size up your room and understand how your new table will fit within the room and with the other furniture. You can be really creative with a new coffee table but it should still fit in with the aesthetics of the existing design.
Versatile Coffee Tables. If you have a smaller room you may think you don't have room for a coffee table. If you choose one that serves multiple purposes however you may find certain types of coffee tables can actually be space savers. If storage is an issue many attractive tables offer lots of extra storage space. Drawers or shelves in coffee tables are great places to keep magazines the phone book craft supplies or remote controls. Coffee tables that incorporate baskets are cleverly designed to be attractive yet give you more storage options. These are great places to keep baby toys or your latest knitting project.
Quick Styling Tips: Books are key items a couple of stacks of coffee table books you love arranged at one end or opposite sides. Trays are key to creating a style when there isn't much happening either contrast the shape of the table (i.e. round on square or square on round) or go for the same shape positioned perpendicular or off centre place a vase with fresh flowers or a candle holder and throw your remotes in. Pretty boxes also make an easy display; placed on top of a few magazines or stack a couple in differing sizes & colours they will add an instant display and also form a place where you can hide the remotes.
