Your living room or family room gets a lot of work on a daily basis and ensuring you and your guests have a cozy place to relax and put your drink down is important.
Coffee tables are one of those furniture pieces that you don't think of much until you sit down at a couch and realize there isn't enough space for your legs because an over‐sized coffee table is in the way.
Round coffee tables allow you to maximize space 'conveniently' and 'beautifully'. If you are bewildered on how to select the perfect round coffee table for your relaxing area, here are a few tips to get you started.
1. SELECT A TABLE TO COMPLIMENT YOUR SOFA AND CHAIRSCoffee tables are planned to accompany the surrounding seating furniture, from your 'lounge chairs' to 'sofa', ensure your coffee table mimics the same design style.
For long sofas an accompanying 'long coffee table' works well but with 'round coffee tables' contemplate choosing a larger diameter table.
Ensure the height of the table is cozy for guests to place a drink or book on with just a slight arm reach. If your guests have to get up to use the table, you need to get another table or think about re‐positioning your seated furniture.
2. ASSESS HOW MUCH SPACE YOU HAVEThe design trick with round tables is deciding how much 'walking space' there is around the table. Guests must feel cozy in walking past seated guests, without sensing like a movie theater and saying "excuse me" for seated guests to have to stand! Suppose at least 1‐2 feet around your coffee table, more or less depending on the seating arrangement.
Wingback and captain chairs could have smaller diameter tables amongst an disposition that enables more space to walk clearly by. Each living room would work differently, also ensure you aren't placing the table in the middle of a main walkway to another major room. This can cause an unexpected tripping hazard. Only place coffee tables near a chair or sofa.
3. SAVING SPACE WITH ROUNDED EDGESRound coffee tables naturally take up less space and are ideal for smaller homes. Just because your coffee table is small doesn't mean it has to be boring! Select from decorative wood, metal or glass coffee tables.
Glass would create your table nearly vanish and may create the "illusion of a larger space". And then use your coffee table as a focal point and select an ornate decorated or artisan variety that is comprehensive with attractive inlay, mosaic tiles or other decorative materials.
Many people have chosen to use a round ottoman for a coffee table. This is a big idea if you want to bring a softer appeal to your space area with an upholstered look. Essentially, there is more than one option when choosing your round table.
If you are trying to keep space in your home, you would want to create 'good work' of any space obtainable and using a round coffee table can 'create a visual' and 'useful solution' for seated your special guests.
Use these tips when choosing the perfect one for your living and family room. If you are feeling creative think about redesigning found furniture in other seating areas of your home for your new coffee table.
