However, you can also go vice versa, especially if you have already arranged a room. Changing an old coffee table, can give your room a whole new lease of life. Add a splash of colour, an ingenious modern table and you get a whole new look. You have a marine or Hawaiian-style room, dominated by blue and green water? There are even tables in the form of fish aquariums so you can make it even more real.
The material also has its importance. Glass tables are very beautiful and fit in most rooms, but are more difficult to maintain, and if there are young children in the house, they are not the ideal as accidents can occur. White is a very beautiful colour, but again, it is difficult to maintain. Even a single cup placed directly on the table, it can leave marks. Do not be afraid of colour. A mass of orange, green or red will be a splash of colour and will cheer you up every morning. Usual height of coffee tables is normally between 40 and 45 inches. If you often have guests, a higher one might be more suited, because everyone will be able to reach their cup. A rule of interior design says that the height of the coffee table should be about the same height (or not less than five inches lower than) the couch. Ideal length is two thirds of the couch. However, no rule is set in stone. Depending on your tastes and the rest of the room, you can choose what ever size and colour coffee table you wish.
And lets not forget the comfort coffee tables can bring to a room. After a hard day at work or school, its nice to be able to sink into a soft chair or sofa and prop your feet up. With a coffee table, you can do that. Just be careful not to knock over the accent items or the coffee table book! Maybe you can have a trunk style coffee table for just such foot propping.
So, after youve dreamt about what you want, write down what it is you want your new piece of furniture to do for you. Do you want it to be simple, stylish and elegant and mainly to look good? Or do you want it to be functional and enable you to eat off it in the morning or even for dinner? its also really important not to get distracted by a round wood table that looks amazing but doesnt fulfill all your requirements. For example, many are quite low so great for putting magazines on or your feet up but not good for eating off of. The great thing about round wood coffee tables thought is that there are designs to fit all your needs.
Function, The way you use your coffee table is a key factor, if yours tends to double as a dining table for yourself or children, look for an easy to clean surface such as glass or poly, if you are intending on housing your DVD collection in your coffee table you will need to look for something with storage. If you have young children who may be crawling, or climbing on furniture, you may like to consider something with round edges, which does not necessarily limit you to round designs; many rectangle tables will have a softer curved edge.
