More than Just a table for Coffee. The coffee table generally sits in the expanse between the sofa/s and the television and whilst it does offer a handy place to pop your glass of wine its central location means that most eyes fall on it when they look at the room and it becomes the most important focal point. So are you the arty type with heavy art books and sketch books stacked sky high or perhaps a slightly uptight neat freak with a spotless surface and a coaster at the ready? Regardless of what your personality really is or who you want to project spending some time considering the 'presentation' of your coffee table just as you would a display on a buffet or dresser could make a huge difference to your room.
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.
Within our homes we have pieces of furniture which are purely functional and do not serve any real aesthetic purpose they are just in our homes to serve a purpose. We don't really think too much about these pieces of furniture and neither do our guests. Sometimes these items of furniture can be quite nice pieces but they might just lack something to set them off and this thing to set them off doesn't have to be anything too spectacular. Maybe an ornament would do the trick but cheap ornaments look exactly that cheap. A bowl of fruit or a water feature is a possibility but they are a bit old hat now.
However if you already have a trunk coffee table or a bar height table but it is in bad condition you can paint it and decorate it using your creativity. There are several other things like tiles and vinyl using which you can create attractive and designer patterns on the table top. These tiles are also easy to clean and regular clean up will help you in maintaining the shine and charm of the table.
