Wood gives your coffee table a beautiful finish, which is probably why it’s been a favourite in the lounge room for eons. But as beautiful as it looks, there are downsides to the natural material. Wood is easily damaged by changes in temperature, light and moisture. It’s easy to scratch and stain.
Coffee tables can be versatile and can be made from virtually any material. Natural materials such as rock, wood, cork and other organic materials make perfect finishes for coffee tables. When choosing the right finish for your home, consider the wear and tear from your family and children. Hardwoods perform well with little maintenance, but softer wood coffee tables can show scratches and also indentations from pens and other hard objects. Keep this in mind before choosing a coffee table.
When choosing the wood type you desire for a coffee table, there are several points you will need to take into consideration: Price, color, and durability. One of the considerations will be of paramount importance to your own situation, and will be used to determine your choice.
