When it comes to selecting a coffee table—whether you're replacing an outdated piece or you're starting off fresh entirely—you don't want to rush into hastily buying this pivotal piece of furniture. Its job is not only to tie the room together but to also meet your daily needs. For instance, if you have children, you'll want to consider rounder edges and perhaps even a soft material like leather for a kid-friendly piece of furniture. On the other hand, if you have a vast collection of books and objects that you'd like to display, a larger table with storage shelves may be more appropriate.
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.
Next, look for pieces with built-in storage to aid in camouflaging the considerable number of new toys and items that will be taking over your carefully curated home. Although you may be looking for these specific kid-friendly styles, you can still find a coffee table that suits your personal aesthetic.
