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.
The size of your singular coffee tables is also a very important consideration. If you have larger scale furniture you want your coffee tables to be larger in scale also. A room can look odd and unbalanced if the coffee table is disproportionately larger or smaller than your other furniture. Keeping this in mind you should determine what size coffee table will best fit your space.
If you are going for a more traditional style in your home décor unique coffee tables made of rich dark wood are what you want to consider. If you want a more trendy contemporary style for your home then you would want coffee tables made of different metals or glass.
However you can also go vice versa especially if you have already arranged a room. Changing an old coffee table can give your room a whole new lease of life. Add a splash of colour an ingenious modern table and you get a whole new look. You have a marine or Hawaiian-style room dominated by blue and green water? There are even tables in the form of fish aquariums so you can make it even more real.
Decide on the design too. If you want something simple then go for simplicity in design. If you want something grand try something with intricate designs. If you want to use your unique coffee table to serve guests then consider a lift top or something equally functional. Whatever function or style you need you will be able to find unique coffee tables that will serve that need.
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.
