Buying The Perfect Coffee Table

    One of the most hardworking items in any home would have to be the coffee table. During afternoons when you have your friends over, it’s the mule for your mugs of coffee. When the kids arrive at the end of the day, it’s where all the homework and other paper and pen related recreation happens. And when everything suddenly becomes too hectic, then the coffee table becomes the repository of all things from keys to day old newspapers. Despite all the functions that coffee tables serve, their existence in any sitting room is necessary to really complete the entire living room look. However, picking out the best coffee table to complement the look of your sitting room can transform your room from looking modestly complete to strikingly beautiful.

    What are you looking for in a coffee table?


    Before you pick out the perfect coffee table for your living room or just about any space in your home, you need to be very specific with what you want it to do for you. For instance, do you need something that is rustic and can complement your rugged country room design? Or maybe you have a very large sitting room and you need to have a large coffee table to be able to tie the entire look together without making it seem like your other pieces of furniture are floating in space. Regardless of how you answer, you need to be able to come up with an honest response as to how you’ll be using your coffee table and what kind of coffee table you really need for your room.

    Trying the coffee table out for size.

    Now that you have a clear idea on what kind of coffee table to pick, it’s time for you to find out if the coffee table you’re eyeing fits your space requirements or not. To do this, you can use painters paint to mark the footprint of your coffee table. By doing this exercise, you can visualize if the coffee table you’re thinking of purchasing is too small or too large.

    Add other items to break the coffee table’s scale.

    After doing the previous exercise, you may have had your heart set on a certain coffee table only to be disappointed when it was just too small or too large for your living room. You can also remedy this problem by breaking the scale with the help of other pieces of furniture such as ottomans and benches. Experts from Nick Scali furnture suggests that if a coffee table is too large that it’s no longer proportional to the size of your couch, then you can create the illusion of having a wrap-around couch by placing two ottomans on one free side of the coffee table and a bench on the other. This will allow you and your family to move conveniently from one couch to another. Plus, the continuous seating option also makes the coffee table less imposing. However, if you have guests around and are worried about traffic, then simply pull back the ottomans and the bench for a more relaxed look.
