Comments Off on 5 Tips on How To Choose the Right Living Room Table for Your Home

When it comes to decorating or furnishing your living room, you must do it thoughtfully, as the lounge room is often the first impression of your home. That’s why it’s important choose living room tables that complement your living room’s aura. There are different types of living room tables to choose from – you have coffee tables, buffets and ottomans. So, whatever you choose, it should create balance and seamlessly bring out the elegance of your living room.

If you are looking for some tips, here are our top 5 tips to help you choose the right living room table for your home.

1. Determine Your Living Room Space

Space is the most essential aspect of a living room. Whether you want a coffee table or end tables, or consoles, you need to buy one that fits comfortably without overwhelming the space. Your living room table should provide the look of spaciousness. If you have a large living room, you can comfortably go for chunkier pieces or even both consoles and coffee tables. So, start by planning where you need a table to assume an appropriate size that’ll fit beautifully within your sofa or living room set up.

2. Consider Your Needs

It is vital to consider why exactly you need a coffee table. Is it for storage? Or is it for serving food or drinks to guests? Or maybe just to accompany your sofa to the side? Answering these questions will help you choose the right one. For instance, a coffee table or side table is highly functional. You can use them to place books, snacks, or your TV remote so that you can reach them easily. Then, we have console tables. A console table is mainly a decorative piece that you can place against a wall or behind your sofa. And then there are buffets, used as both a storage and decorative piece of furniture. Ottomans are also excellent choices that you can use as a centrepiece and leg rest. There are also storage ottomans.

3. Consider the Architecture of Your Living Room

As living room tables are a make or break situation, you need to choose one that flows with the architecture and theme of your living room. It includes your windows, columns, existing sofas or couches, shelves, wall decor and other elements. It also covers colour coordination. Matching them takes time but is not impossible as living room tables are available in different shapes like rectangular, circular, square, or oval. They also come in different sizes and materials. So, choose an accent table that resonates with the decor elements of your living room.

4. Know Your Sofa

When buying a living room table, make sure you know the shape, size and colour of your lounge or sofa to choose a table easily. Most modular lounges pair well with modern oversized coffee tables. Also, consider the seating arrangement. For instance, for an L-shaped sofa, a rectangular coffee table is perfect. And end tables are ideal choices for chaise lounges. If you consider end tables, you should choose ones that do not exceed the height and depth of your sofa’s arm.

5. Know Your Style

Finally, it’s time to consider your style. Whether you like it sleek, wooden piece, a glass top, or a metallic chrome frame, colourful or playful, an accent piece or minimalist – it’s all your choice. The thumb rule is just make sure you don’t overdo your living room.

Mistakes to Avoid One of the worst things you can do when you pick your coffee table is to go into a store and pick your favourite piece, without any consideration for how it will go with the rest of your furniture and décor. If you don’t consider the size and practicality of your coffee table you can be left with a look that simply doesn’t work.

You need to consider the needs of your family too. Will there be things to put in or under it? Is it large enough for TV remotes and other items?

Coordinate Your Coffee Table with Your Other Furniture What is the style of your other furniture? Do you want something that matches it exactly or complements it? Generally your coffee table should be around two thirds of the length of your sofa. Shape should be considered for both practicality and style.

Create a Balanced Look The height of the coffee table should ideally align with your sofa’s cushions and other seating from a style and comfort perspective. Don’t have your coffee table higher than the seating height of your cushions. If it is a little shorter this works too. Our team at Valentines Bendigo Furniture stores can help you choose.

Colour What type of colour scheme are you working with? Choose something that goes with your lounge room or select a bright contrast. If the room is neutral a bright or unusual coffee table can be the art in this space.

The Shape of Your Coffee Table There are many designs, textures, materials, and shapes to choose from in coffee tables. What suits your style and goes with your furniture and décor? Do you want a round table or a square or oval shape?

If you have a very small living space, a round coffee table works well. You do not want to cramp your space and make it look too cluttered. If you have a spacious area, a large rectangular table that has lots of room for storage can look great aesthetically as well as being versatile.

Creativity A layered look for your coffee table gives you the maximum flexibility. Whether it is a focal point or a complimentary piece of furniture a neutral backdrop is ideal. Some of the looks right now are leather, bespoke lacquers, and wicker. Mix and match with some cool décor and homewares.
