Given how many different options there are when it comes to wood coffee tables, it would be wise to take them all into consideration and to figure out which type best suits your home. If you really like a style but it doesn’t match your living room, perhaps you can apply to a different area.
Though you might not necessarily consider a coffee table to be the most obvious focal point of the room, if it is placed central to the seating then it might just be the star of the show – whether intentional or not. Especially against a fireplace backdrop or a feature wall, the coffee table will have the job of tying the room together thematically. Bright, bold coffee tables can be used to complement the room’s accent colours. Or opt for a high gloss finish to create a contemporary look.
Don’t fall under the assumption that having a coffee table is a basic requirement for all living rooms. Especially with smaller rooms where you want to leave as much floor space as possible to give the illusion of more space. If having a coffee table is only going to get in the way, and all you need it for is a handy surface for when you’re sitting on the living room sofa, there are other solutions available. Side tables can provide an out-of-the-way surface for drinks, phones, and books.
