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. If you want to create a coffee table display select pieces with a similar theme and group them together then balance the display with an off centre vase of flowers or bowl. If you prefer to keep your coffee table surface clear look for a coffee table design that makes more of a statement to add interest to the centre of the room if you have a minimalist theme create depth by contrasting shapes a simple round vase on a square table for example.
Coffee tables are an important part of a living rooms or family rooms decor. They offer style and can be quite functional. Consider the theme of your room before deciding on the coffee tables of your choice. If you want them to serve as storage units or hold reading lamps coffee tables will fit the bill. When you give thought and consideration to this decision your coffee tables will enhance the comfort level.
Obviously price is another important consideration but thankfully there are now many attractive well made cheap coffee tables to fit most budgets. And if youre on a really tight budget then you can always go for man made woods with a veneer or stain that give a wood effect.
