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.
No matter you consider buying a storage trunk coffee table or a bar height table, both of them will surely enhance the appealing looks of your household. These are available in different shapes like square, rectangular or round and you can get one that suits the existing decor of your living space. There are some tables which have an attractive top with beautiful carvings and a storage area underneath. Such tables not only fill the empty space of the house but also allow you to store things in the compartments below.
Function. The way you use your coffee table is a key factor, if yours tends to double as a dining table for yourself or children, look for an easy to clean surface such as glass or poly, if you are intending on housing your DVD collection in your coffee table you will need to look for something with storage. If you have young children who may be crawling, or climbing on furniture, you may like to consider something with round edges, which does not necessarily limit you to round designs; many rectangle tables will have a softer curved edge.
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.
