Looking to add some pizazz to your living room without spending a fortune? Behold these stylish coffee tables you can make yourself. Whether your handy skills are amateur, expert, or somewhere in between, you can easily make one of these handmade coffee tables.
Position your coffee table close to your sofa or armchairs so it forms both a useful surface and an anchor to a conversational arrangement of furniture. Keep it within reach but allow enough space to come and go from seating.
Want to make a small living room look less crowded? Opt for a glass coffee table, which frees up visual space with its sleek, see-through design so that the rest of the room's decor shows through.
Sofa is usually the first major piece of furniture we invest in for our living rooms—and, arguably, for our homes. One of the larger pieces of furniture, it's also the one we spend the most time on (other than our beds), and we often have very strict ideas of how comfortable it should be. So it's no wonder that this piece of furniture gets most of our attention when decorating a living room. But there's another important piece of the puzzle that often gets neglected: the coffee table.
