Jessamine. Coffee Table. October 31st , 2017.
Many people suggest that in households with small children even a tempered glass coffee table is unsuitable as the possibility of it shattering is just too great. Of course, it is up to individual parents to make their own choices in this matter, but it is always best to err on the side of caution where safety is at stake. For parents who consider a glass coffee table an absolute necessity the option of safety films should also be looked into.
This relatively straightforward piece of furniture however has the potential to define your character, or at least the objects on it do, so what does your coffee table say about you? 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.
If you are buying a square coffee table be sure to mark out the floor area that will be covered to make sure that it will not overwhelm the room. Many people with small children prefer a round coffee table as they consider the lack of sharp corners a safer option and less likely to cause accidents. Round tables can be difficult to fit into smaller rooms and can take up more floor space than other shapes.
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. 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.
If you have a large amount of timber already though it can become overwhelmingly matchy-matchy easily if you select a matching coffee table, break it up with glass with timber legs, or a complimentary timber accessory on top of a poly or glass table. The modern polyurethane options are often suited to buying all one colour; they then form the background for the accessories such as the rug, flowers or prints in the room.
