Coffee tables add pizazz to your decor by making a room feel complete. When you add these tables to your living room or family room you can create a distinct coziness to your seating areas. Some living or family rooms can be overwhelming in size. By adding a couple coffee tables near a sofa or a chair combination they create mini seating areas which in turn foster a more comfortable and cozy atmosphere.
The coffee table should be suitable to your living style. If you rarely use it possibly only to serve your guest a cup of coffee choose a small simple table. If it is likely to get used as a place for your favourite magazines flower vase bowl etc. then go for a spacious table with drawers. To show off decorative accessories (shells stones photos etc..) choose a table by the window. For a small space choose the set of two or three tables of different sizes which usually is stored underneath one another and occasionally when the situation requires all three tables can be used.
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.
