Coffee table sets are available in many designs shapes sizes and brand names. Homeowners are spoiled with choices of rectangular round and oval shapes. Coffee tables are made of various different materials such as wrought iron stainless steel marble and glass. Some are made of high-quality wood like teak and oak. Some coffee tables are added with glass tops. Depending on the theme of the living room homeowners can choose antique wrought iron coffee tables for the classic Victorian look. Otherwise those who like simple modern look can opt for teak or oak coffee tables in rich burgundy or dark brown. Some coffee tables are made of rare materials such as rattan. These give the overall Asian or Tiki look for the living room especially for beach houses or homes in a tropical country.
You can purchase an all glass table or a glass table paired with wood or paired with wrought iron. Glass gives the room an illusion of width because you can see through it which is great if you live in a small apartment or house. The author does not recommend glass on homes where there are small kids as glass has the tendency to break. When buying glass tables always be sure that you ask for tempered or treated glass because when this type of glass breaks it will not have sharp edges unlike untreated glass which has the tendency to break in large shards.
Contemporary and modern coffee tables are hardly recognizable as coffee tables in the traditional sense of the word as they are usually rectangular and quite plain. The new designs however are nothing but and can even create a show-stopping conversational piece that is wonderful for the living room. Usually they are associated as a simple place to rest coffee next to a sofa or couch. More contemporary designs however are interesting enough to stand on their own and can even be the centerpiece of the room.
With a storage table you can use it to put away extra clutter like books or magazines.
There are a variety of things you can do with a lift top coffee table. If you like to eat at the coffee table but you don`t like to hunch over to reach your food you can simply lift the top of the table up so it sits at a comfortable height for you to enjoy a good meal. Using your laptop in the living room has never been more comfortable than with a lift top coffee table. Instead of bending over to type you can simply adjust your lift top coffee table so that your computer is at the perfect typing height.
Your kids will definitely enjoy the lift top coffee table. Playing games or doing homework becomes easier now that the kids don`t have to sit on a hard floor or sit on their knees to reach their things. They can simply pull up a chair or stool and get to work! This is great for parents who want to keep an eye on their children by letting them do their homework or play their games in the living room instead of being out-of-sight in their bedroom.And another great thing about these functional coffee tables is that they come in every style from traditional to country so they fit into any style of home décor.
