The level of functionality your coffee table offers depends on how you want to use it. While most coffee tables have a flat surface supported on a base, there are plenty that offer additional features.
Stylish places to stow your odds and ends are critical in the living room. Whether it's big or small, fancy or casual, the living room is likely the most public and communal space in the house—it's where you entertain guests, so it's gotta make a good impression.
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.
The living room is typically the most utilized space in any home, which means it certainly deserves your attention (and your eye for design). Whether you use yours to display your favorite artwork, enjoy movies on a big screen, or host the occasional party, the perfect setup is of the utmost importance.
If only making the furniture looking more delightful could not make you buy a cocktail table, then its comfortability is going to convince you. The coffee table is the place you put all your hot or cold beverages, light snacks, remote control, magazines or books, whenever you sit in the livingroom. When you are on the sofa there, all these belongings of yours are at the reach of your hand. You can easily grab anything you want, without the need to walk across the room in order to get it. Also, some of the coffee tables have an additional shelf or a few cabinets to store the stuff you would like to keep near. This extra makes these items even more appealing and convenient.
Having a clear coffee table is not only stylish, it can make your space look even bigger! It's a fun visual trick that helps your sitting area feel more open and airy. What’s not to love about that?
