How to choose the right coffee table

When it comes to choosing the perfect coffee table, there are a few things you need to keep in mind - size, style and material are all important factors to consider when making your selection. Here's everything you need to know to choose the perfect piece for your home! 

First, think about why you want a coffee table 

Before you start shopping for a coffee table, it's important to think about why you need one in the first place. Do you want a place to rest your feet after a long day? A place to keep your TV remote within arm's reach? Or maybe you're looking for something with storage to help you stay organised.  

Once you know how you'll be using your coffee table, it will be much easier to find one that fits your needs. For example, if you're looking for a place to put your feet up (no judgement from us!), you might want a coffee table with a sturdy construction and height that matches your lounge. If better organisation is your goal, look for a table with drawers or shelves. And if you're just hoping to add a touch of style to your living room, consider a coffee table with an interesting shape or a unique finish. 


Keep your theme in mind 

As any interior designer will tell you, the coffee table is one of the most important pieces of furniture in a living room. Not only does it provide a place to rest drinks and snacks, but it also sets the tone for the entire space. When choosing one, therefore, it is important to consider the theme of your room.  

For example, a glass table would not be a good choice for a cosy country cottage, but it would be perfect for a modern loft. Likewise, a rustic wooden table would look out of place in a sleek and stylish apartment. By taking the time to choose the right coffee table, you can ensure that your living room looks and feels cohesive. 


Ask yourself what kind of shape you want 

A coffee table is more than just a place to rest your drink; it can also be a style statement for your living room. When choosing a coffee table, it's important to think about the overall look you want to achieve. For example, if you have a small space, you might want to choose a compact table that doesn't take up too much room.  

Alternatively, if you have a large living room, you might want a bigger table that can anchor the space and provide a surface for entertaining. You should also consider the material of the table; glass tables create a sleek, modern look, while wood tables add warmth and character. Whatever your preference is, make sure to choose a coffee table that compliments your existing furniture and fits your needs. 


Consider what the best size is 

When you're out shopping for a coffee table, it's important to keep the size of the room in mind. You don't want to end up with a table that's too small or too large for the space. If the table is too small, it will look out of place and seem like an eyesore. On the other hand, if it's too large, it will take up too much space and make the room feel cramped.  

The best way to avoid this is to measure the space before you go out shopping. That way, you'll know exactly how big or small of a table you need. And when you find the perfect coffee table, you'll be able to picture it in your space and imagine how great it will look. 

Invest in a coffee table that complements your home and style 

Overall, choosing the perfect coffee table is all about thinking about what you need and how it will fit into your space. When considering size, material, and style, it's important to keep your theme and overall look in mind. By doing this, you can find a piece that perfectly complements your home!
