Are you about to design your new home in a unique way? Or maybe you want to change the setup of your existing room. Whatever your requirement is, the living room plays the most important role in deciding the fundamentals of home décor. The living room is the only place in your house where visitors step in first when they visit your house. Therefore, you should pay extra attention to selecting the living room furniture. Whether it’s a TV cabinet, a designer lampshade, a coffee table or a bookshelf – you should make your choices warm and unique.
Finding out the missing piece:
A center table is the first piece that every visitor gets to see and the last piece to match up the puzzle of a living room home décor. You cannot just buy an arbitrary piece of table before finishing up rest of the interiors. You need to pick up just the appropriate table to fill up the gap. Most of the interior designers get a tough time as there are hundreds of available options. How to match up with the living room theme? A round wooden top table with drawers? A glass top brass table? How large it should be? Is it allowing enough leg space while stretching on the couch? Can you easily reach it while having an evening coffee and snacks?
If your living space is spacious enough, two center tables with different shape and size can enhance the beauty of your room.
Determine the functionality:
Before you buy a coffee table think about how you are going to use it. Are you thinking of a casual piece of furniture to rest your feet up? Then probably glass top tables are not the best option rather a sturdy wooden table can do better. Do you want to keep an orchid on the table and magazines for your leisure time? Then you must need drawers and extra shelves along with the table. Also, the surface shouldn’t allow getting easily marked or scratched. The bottom shelf and drawers can allow you as an additional storage unit.
There are different styles available for different household needs. The way you plan to use a table will help you to choose the right table before shopping.
Determine the style and material:
Center tables are available in every imaginable style – ensure you get a table that complements your room décor. For example, if you have chosen a hardwood TV cabinet, bookshelf and sofa, only a wooden coffee table or glass top tables can blend up with. Blending means you don’t need to match up. You may choose one piece of furniture that stylistically blends with or stands out.
Here, you should consider the shape, material and the overall look while choosing a center table. Sounds confusing? It may be. But following these basic home designing rules, you can decide all on your own.
The best way to shop best is to take a few snapshots of your living room so you can easily visualize how everything will appear collectively.
Determine the appropriate shape:
The measurement of your living space is the most important part before buying a coffee table. Ideally, the table height must be a few inches lower than the main sitting area. The perfect length must be two thirds the sofa length. You should maintain at least 14-18 inches space between the table and the sofa. Don’t buy an oversized table if your space doesn’t allow so.
After dealing with the size, you should concentrate on the shape of the table. The traditional rectangular shaped tables always fit perfectly in all type of rooms. But if you want to go beyond popularity, choose oval, round, octagonal, square glass and wood coffee tables – whatever you want, you only define the right shape.
