What function will your coffee table have?

First let us consider the function that your coffee table will have in your home. Will it be used to hold books and magazines as well as drinks? Are you planning to use it as a space for your children to do activities such as colouring?

You may also want to use the coffee table as a place to put your feet up and relax. The function of your coffee table will depend on your personal requirements as well as the other furniture that you already have in your living room.

The size and height of your coffee table

Size is an important consideration when you are looking at coffee tables for sale. The size of the coffee table will need to match the size of your room. Mark out the area of the room that you want the coffee table to fill so that you can get a better idea of what size table will look best. It is also important to take the other living room furniture in the space into account.

For large rooms with big couches, a single large coffee table may seem like the best option. However another suggestion is to select a pair of matching coffee tables. Two coffee tables create a design which moves your attention around the room rather than creating a single focus point.

The height of the coffee table should be the same as your couches. When choosing the right size make sure that you leave space in the main passage ways of your lounge. This includes leaving space to access the couch from the entrance and the TV from the sofa.

Glass coffee tables create a central point of interest in the room. Glass tables are easier to clean and if you don’t have a coaster you can still place your drink on the table without worrying about stains. This is a stunning option if you are looking for a more modern coffee table to compliment your living room.

Side tables are another option. Remember that, when choosing your coffee table, see if you can find matching side tables as well. Junk Mail is a great place to find stunning coffee and side tables, so be sure to check out the side tables for sale on Junk Mail.

Metal tables with a glass surface create an open ambiance in the room. This option is also great if you have a rug that you want to showcase underneath the table.

Add vibrant colours to your room with upholstered coffee tables. You will need to get one that is made from durable material that doesn’t stain easily. Make sure that the colour matches the style of your room.

Round coffee table designs offer better circulation. Wood coffee tables add warmth to your lounge. The disadvantage of wood coffee tables are that they are heavy and bulky.

While coffee tables with detailing can make a great feature make sure that your room doesn’t become overbearing. If you want a coffee table with an intricate design it is better to complement it with furniture that is plainer in its design.


Make sure that the coffee table does not damage your flooring. Wooden flooring can be scratched by metal coffee tables. Damaged coffee table legs can cause stains or marks on your floor. Check the legs of the coffee table before you buy it.

If you need extra storage space, buying a coffee table with drawers is a good option. The drawers can be used to keep your lounge neat and tidy. Storing items that are frequently used in the lounge in your coffee table drawers is also convenient. Drawers are a great place to keep books, magazines, remotes and children’s toys.
