When you are looking for a new coffee table, there are many choice and design styles to choose from. It can be overwhelming when choosing! When deciding, think about the space that you have in mind for your coffee table, and the style, shape, and fabric that you want.
The right coffee table in the right space can make a huge impact. The coffee table is a hearty piece that can be the centre of your living room décor.
You need to find the right piece for your space that complements your other furniture and homewares. A coffee table is the type of furniture that combines function and form with style and service. At Valentine’s Furniture we have a great range to choose from.
Whether you are looking for a coffee table that is fully functional, understated, or really makes a statement it is worth taking some time to the ideal coffee table is for your living area.
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?
Once you have in mind what you need and like you can then start shopping for the perfect coffee table for your home.
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.
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.
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.
