Function, 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.
Style & Colour, There are many styles available from very modern, to traditional styles, look for something that complements the room and other furnishings, and a classic glass top will generally be quite safe for those who are unsure. In terms of material, timber works well if you have small timber elements in the rooms, it helps to tie the room together. 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. If you want to create a beautiful arty display on top look for a simpler style that wont compete, if you are not so confident with creating bold displays, select more of a statement piece that can become the talking point, a bolder design will ensure your guests dont think youre boring!
Now, not only are coffee table sets a great idea because they are pleasing to the eye, but they also bring a lot of functionality into the place they are put as well. Remember, they are tables and are the perfect place to set different things down. For example, if you want a convenient place to put snacks for that super bowl get-together, just turn to the coffee table. Or, if you are in need of some extra lighting in your living space, the end table would be a nice place to put a lamp. You can use both for setting down a wide variety of other things as well including family photos, the remote controllers for the TV and cable box, magazines, and you could even use the surface of the coffee one for playing board games with the family.
Coffee tables come in such a wide variety of styles that it may be hard to choose just one for your living room or family room. A good rule of thumb is to match it with the rest of your rooms decor. Is your room more streamlined, where bold colors and hard lines rule? Then choose a sleek and boldly colored coffee table to complete the look.
