The right coffee table can bring your room together, adding style, practicality and storage to any living space. Whether it’s mid-century chic or contemporary appeal, your choice of coffee table sets the tone for the whole room.
Coffee tables and side tables serve a dual purpose in any living space. As well as offering the chance to add a stylish centrepiece to your room or an aesthetic addition to a seating area, they also have a very practical purpose. Coffee tables are used to keep drinks, as well as books and magazines, vases and ornaments and other devices such as remote controls.
But how do you choose the right coffee table for your space? Your decision largely comes down to several key factors. Think about what kind of living space you want to create, based around the following criteria.
Think about the colour and material. Do you want a natural wood finish, painted surfaces to match your colour scheme or other material finishes such as glass or wood? There are also speciality materials such as rattan, which could add a unique stylistic touch to your home.
What style works best for your home? Are you looking for retro chic with a mid-century inspired coffee table or does a more modern polished concrete finish better suit your space? Size matters too, as does shape. With everything from large and round coffee tables to small and square (as well as nesting tables) available, you can find the right table for your practical and design needs.
It’s also a good idea to think about extra storage options, such as drawers and shelves. This can make it easier to keep your space tidy, providing valuable space to store items like chargers, magazines, coasters and more. This helps to cut back on clutter and keep coffee table surfaces clear for when you need them.
