What To Consider Before Purchasing a Coffee Table?

To turn the process of searching for the perfect coffee table into the best possible experience, you should first consider the following factors:

Budget

Although it's a relatively small piece of furniture, you need to think about how much money you're willing to spend during the shopping spree. Depending on the material they're made of, coffee tables can quickly go from the budget-friendly category to the more pricy one. That's why it's vital to know exactly how much you're willing to spend.

Style

Are you looking for a contemporary table that will add some uniqueness to your living room, or do you prefer a classic piece that will match the rest of the décor? What does the colour palette in your house look like? Neutrals are more versatile and easier to style, while dark or bright saturated tones tend to clash with other bold colours. How about the rest of your living room furniture? A coffee table should match their look, so it can become an integral part of the living space.

Personal Preferences

With so many options available, you should try to determine what materials, colours, and shapes you fancy the most when it comes to coffee tables. Size and height are also vital because you and your family are going to reach there a lot. You should also think about storage space - do you tend to focus more on the functionality, or do the looks and design matter the most? For inspiration, try reading some interior design magazines.

Examine Your Space

If you want to buy a coffee table, you first need to evaluate the available space. Before you make the final decision, try taking something similar in size to the table that caught your eye and put it in the different configurations with other furniture in your living room. There should still be enough space between the table and your sofa or a bookshelf for movement and cleaning. If you own a fireplace, don't try to fit anything too big in front of it - it's better to go smaller than risk fire or damage.

However, it's not only about the dimension. Look at the proportions of your room. A low coffee table won't look good when paired with a high sofa, making reaching for things like a remote or a magazine uncomfortable. If you own a small sofa or just the armchairs, a wide and bulky coffee table will dominate the space and make the rest of the furniture look like they rather belong in a dollhouse. Don't try to make the pieces you already own fit a new coffee table - it's much easier to find the one that fits your needs rather than adjust what you already own.

Classic or Modern?

If your living room is furnished in a rather classic style, you should opt for wood. It's a timeless material easy to match with fluffy rugs and velvet or leather sofas. It comes in so many colours that you won't have to worry about getting a headache when trying to find a perfect match. With so many designs and brands available, the only thing you need to do is figure out what colour dominates your space and go from there. For example, dark ash or mahogany will act as a beautiful contrast to a white sofa, while light oak or acacia will help tone down black and navy or bright oranges and reds. Shape-wise, rectangular tables tend to be the most popular choice among fans of the classic style.

A glass coffee table would make an ideal choice for someone who loves decorative touches and functionality. However, you should keep in mind that glass requires regular cleaning. If it's the shiny finish you're after, consider going for a high-gloss finish, stainless steel, or solid wood in black or white for an elegant and stylish look. Round tables will be a great choice for any fan of modern trends.

Nowadays, both classic and modern furniture comes with storage space, so if you focus on models with drawers or shelves, you won't have to worry about where to put a remote or hide some random trinkets.

In Conclusion

Coffee tables come in many designs, making it easier for you to create a beautiful centre stage in your living room. They're an essential part of every lounge area, as they provide the space and surface to display various décor pieces and serve as a space for dining and entertainment. Put down your coffee mug or cup of tea, leave your food there and gather around for a fun time with friends and family!
