Madeline Legrand. Coffe Table. October 07th, 2017.
Another thing to keep in mind when choosing a coffee table is the cost. Think about your habits and how you use your table. Do you like to sit on the sofa with your legs up on the table? Then you will need a square ottoman style table. You need space for storing magazines or other such pieces? You need a table with several drawers or shelves or you can go for one looking like a bottom drawer. Your living room is the meeting place of friends? You need a large table so you can fit lots glasses or cups on it. You want a big meal, but not always have enough space? Choose a "nest" of tables, meaning three tables of different sizes that can be used separately, but can be tidied away beneath one and other.
Wood remains the key material that many coffee tables are made from. Used in both traditional tables, as well as modern designed tables. Many of the high end wooden tables are made using traditional woods, such as oak, chosen for its unique and unrepeatable look, as well as its durability and strength. Other woods are often used including solid Asian hardwood, many of which come with a Maple Veneer. In addition, maple finished items, many manufacturer use Pine, Ash, Cedar, moreover, many of the woods often come with a range of finishes, for example a cherry finish. Because of the various types of wood, and the many available finishes that each type of wood can have, it still remains one of the most popular materials. Much of the wood used to create the wooden furniture come from specialised, renewable wood plantations, which specialise in creating more durable, stronger strength wood, with fewer natural problems, such as knots.
Obviously price is another important consideration, but thankfully there are now many attractive, well made cheap coffee tables to fit most budgets. And if youre on a really tight budget then you can always go for man made woods with a veneer or stain that give a wood effect.
The material also has its importance. Glass tables are very beautiful and fit in most rooms, but are more difficult to maintain, and if there are young children in the house, they are not the ideal as accidents can occur. White is a very beautiful colour, but again, it is difficult to maintain. Even a single cup placed directly on the table, it can leave marks. Do not be afraid of colour. A mass of orange, green or red will be a splash of colour and will cheer you up every morning. Usual height of coffee tables is normally between 40 and 45 inches. If you often have guests, a higher one might be more suited, because everyone will be able to reach their cup. A rule of interior design says that the height of the coffee table should be about the same height (or not less than five inches lower than) the couch. Ideal length is two thirds of the couch. However, no rule is set in stone. Depending on your tastes and the rest of the room, you can choose what ever size and colour coffee table you wish.
