Take a look at our expert advice and browse our inventory of elegant selections to complete the look of your living room.
Space Things Out
The hardest part about picking the perfect coffee table is figuring out how much space to allow in between the seating and the center of the room. It is important to leave at least a little bit of room that people can walk between. Make sure there is enough space for you to rest your feet and legs without bumping into the table. Make sure people can easily walk from one room to another without running into the table as well.
Choose the Proper Materials
Figuring out the right shape and size of the coffee table is one thing, but choosing the best materials for your coffee table is another difficult challenge. Between wood, metal, and glass, you can select high-end options that will instantly increase the value of your room.
A word of caution: Never invest in coffee tables that used mixed metal materials. For example, copper and chrome, or brass and chrome, will look old fast. You might end up regretting your choice in just a few short years.
Find Your Function
A high-end coffee table isn’t just about looks. While aesthetic design plays a huge role, you also want a coffee table that serves its purpose as well. Functional coffee tables provide places for storage, decoration, and display. You can easily switch between formal and casual depending on what you put on top. Besides, it is always nice to have more room to put down your food or drink without risking it spilling onto the floor.
Invest in the Right Color
The color of your coffee table is another important consideration. You should think about the other pieces of furniture in the room, as well as the general style you would like to display. Coffee tables work well as accent pieces, meaning that they should contrast with the color of the seating. A bright-colored coffee table works well with neutral-toned sofas, and vice versa.
Know Your Cleaning Requirements
Each type of material needs to be cleaned differently. If you plan on getting a lot of use out of your coffee table, then you should consider a glass surface as you can place drinks on top without needing a coaster. Wood and metal, however, is much more likely to stain.
Solid wood is usually the material of choice for high-end luxury furniture; your coffee table may require weekly maintenance, but the lifelong value will be worth it.
