Can you imagine a world without coffee tables? Not only would we be missing out on the joy of resting a full cup of joe within arms reach, but we'd be down a majorly decorative element in our living rooms and dens.
No matter how big or small your home is, there never seems to be quite enough storage space to go around. That's why it pays to sneak as much extra storage as you can into your space, so you can hide away clutter in style. And since your coffee table is probably always covered in stuff (think magazines, remotes, coasters, various knickknacks...), it only makes sense to get a coffee table that doubles as a place to stow away your stuff. And no, I'm not talking about getting a coffee table with a bottom shelf—I mean a table complete with secret, hidden storage compartments, like pop-up tops and unsuspecting drawers. Your living room will look so much neater, and you'll feel a little bit like a secret agent, so it's really a win-win situation.
The standard shapes for coffee tables are rectangular, square, and round. Square and round coffee tables take up the most space. These are ideal for homes that have lots of room to work with in front of the sofa or for room where the sofa and coffee table are being used for conversational seating. If your living room is centered around the TV then a rectangular coffee table is likely your best bet. If you like less clutter then it can certainly be worthwhile to consider a coffee table with built-in storage or a storage shelf. Because a TiVo remote and a Playstation controller aren’t exactly the most beautiful things to stare at.
