Lucille. Coffee Table. November 08th , 2017.
The way you use your coffee table is a key factor, if yours tends to double as a dining table for yourself or children, look for an easy to clean surface such as glass or poly, if you are intending on housing your DVD collection in your coffee table you will need to look for something with storage. If you have young children who may be crawling, or climbing on furniture, you may like to consider something with round edges, which does not necessarily limit you to round designs; many rectangle tables will have a softer curved edge.
Not only should you ask the sales assistant but you should seek confirmation that their response is truthful as it can be very hard to tell what type of glass a table is made from just by looking. You might consider it unlikely that it will shatter, but people do fall, particularly children. Even sitting on a table when distracted could cause it to shatter and inflict life shattering injuries.
Coffee tables can be bought as cheaply as twenty dollars, however they can also cost in the thousands. It is a good idea to have an idea of your budget so that you do not fall in love with a table that is far out of your reach. Coffee tables come in thousands of different shapes and sizes, as do living areas. When making your purchase you need to find the size and shape that will best match your room whilst still looking and functioning how you require.
The space where the coffee table is going will largely dictate the size, if it is to run between a sofa or chaise and the television on the opposite wall (or between 2 sofas facing) then a rectangular coffee table will complement the space, if there is a square space between a set of sofas such as a 2+3 or a corner lounge, then you could go for square, round or oversized rectangle.
Pretty boxes also make an easy display; placed on top of a few magazines or stack a couple in differing sizes & colours, they will add an instant display and also form a place where you can hide the remotes. Create a more personal style with one or two small objects or knickknacks placed on a stack of books or on a box. A sculptural vase or bowl will often form the focus of coffee tables, for extra punch; fill it with fresh flowers when guests come round.
