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.
One piece of furniture that often doesnt get much attention is the coffee table. Although this piece of furniture can add functionality and style to your room sometimes it seems like more of an afterthought instead of part of a cohesive plan. Its the little things that make a room complete though so now might be a good time to take a good look at your coffee table. If it needs replaced youll be surprised how many options you have to choose from.
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.
And this is an important measure to consider because a round wood coffee table will often take on many different functions. So really if you want one that is great for the kids to draw on eat dinner off but you still want it to look sleek cool and minimal then there will be a trade off. And if you dont consider all the aspects before you take a trip to the new designer furniture store you may come back with a very desirable but basically impractical piece of furniture.
Lift Top Coffee Tables - this is like an additional piece of material on the existing tables. The basic concept behind their unique design is the utility of the additional piece. The top of the table is detachable and can be lowered or raised according to the required adjustments. These tables are used mainly for the purpose of eating in front of the TV or using laptops. They make it easier for you to access the contents on the table without making any extra effort.
Versatile Coffee Tables If you have a smaller room you may think you dont have room for a coffee table. If you choose one that serves multiple purposes however you may find certain types of coffee tables can actually be space savers. If storage is an issue many attractive tables offer lots of extra storage space. Drawers or shelves in coffee tables are great places to keep magazines the phone book craft supplies or remote controls. Coffee tables that incorporate baskets are cleverly designed to be attractive yet give you more storage options. These are great places to keep baby toys or your latest knitting project.
