The material also has its importance. Glass tables are very beautiful and fit in most rooms but are more difficult to maintain and if there are young children in the house they are not the ideal as accidents can occur. White is a very beautiful colour but again it is difficult to maintain. Even a single cup placed directly on the table it can leave marks. Do not be afraid of colour. A mass of orange green or red will be a splash of colour and will cheer you up every morning. Usual height of coffee tables is normally between 40 and 45 inches. If you often have guests a higher one might be more suited because everyone will be able to reach their cup. A rule of interior design says that the height of the coffee table should be about the same height (or not less than five inches lower than) the couch. Ideal length is two thirds of the couch. However no rule is set in stone. Depending on your tastes and the rest of the room you can choose what ever size and colour coffee table you wish.
Coffee tables are also used as end tables in some homes. Such homes may not have the space to have a coffee table a foot or two in front of the sofa or group of chairs. Placing them as end tables is a good solution and they can still act as accent tables. End tables are also good for the placement of reading lamps when you need a little extra light for reading or hobbies such as knitting quilting or needlepoint.
You can find coffee tables that offer extra seating in your room as well. Some of these include comfy seats that store under the table when they are not in use. Other coffee tables double as ottomans or sometimes large ottomans can become coffee tables with just the addition of an attractive tray.
A coffee table also called as cocktail table is a long low table which is usually found in the sitting room. If you are a person who loves to entertain guests at your house you would specifically desire for your sitting room to look great. A sitting room should have all the facilities that give comfort to the people there. This is the reason why many people emphasize on having a table that goes along with the ambiance of your sitting room.
Since coffee tables are such a staple of the average home an industry of sorts has risen around it: the coffee table book. The coffee table book is much larger in size than the average book with covers that are almost works of art in themselves. You may have seen a coffee table book that you wanted just because the cover was so beautiful. These books are pictorial in nature and are meant to be visually enjoyed and quickly perused.
You dont want to purchase a coffee table only to realize when you get it home that you dont have space for it because its too big or that you have too much space because its too small.
