If you have been carefully putting together the pieces of your living room one of the things that may well have stumped you are the coffee tables. Don't feel alone. Coffee tables are a bane of many people decorating their homes. Often they can find a perfect living room set with sofas chairs end tables and the like but then hit a brick wall when it comes time to select coffee tables. If you're one of these people here are some tips to help you get past this roadblock on your home décor path.
Scale & Size. Firstly the scale of the table is probably the most important factor the table will anchor the room and if it's too big or too small then the proportions of the room could be thrown off. The space where the coffee table is going will largely dictate the size if it is to run between a sofa or chaise and the television on the opposite wall (or between 2 sofas facing) then a rectangular coffee table will complement the space if there is a square space between a set of sofa's such as a 2+3 or a corner lounge then you could go for square round or oversized rectangle.
The modern polyurethane options are often suited to buying all one colour; they then form the background for the accessories such as the rug flowers or prints in the room. If you want to create a beautiful arty display on top look for a simpler style that won't compete if you are not so confident with creating bold displays select more of a statement piece that can become the talking point a bolder design will ensure your guests don't think you're boring!
Create a more personal style with one or two small objects or knickknacks placed on a stack of books or on a box. Fresh Flowers- a sculptural vase or bowl will often form the focus of coffee tables for extra punch; fill it with fresh flowers when guests come round. What to Look For. If perhaps your coffee table is letting you down or you are simply in the market for a new one what are some of the key factors you should be looking for?
