Versatile Coffee Tables, If you have a smaller room, you may think you dont have room for a coffee table. If you choose one that serves multiple purposes, however, you may find certain types of coffee tables can actually be space savers. If storage is an issue, many attractive tables offer lots of extra storage space. Drawers or shelves in coffee tables are great places to keep magazines, the phone book, craft supplies or remote controls. Coffee tables that incorporate baskets are cleverly designed to be attractive yet give you more storage options. These are great places to keep baby toys or your latest knitting project.
You can find coffee tables that offer extra seating in your room as well. Some of these include comfy seats that store under the table when they are not in use. Other coffee tables double as ottomans or sometimes, large ottomans can become coffee tables with just the addition of an attractive tray.
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.
Wood remains the key material that many coffee tables are made from. Used in both traditional tables, as well as modern designed tables. Many of the high end wooden tables are made using traditional woods, such as oak, chosen for its unique and unrepeatable look, as well as its durability and strength. Other woods are often used including solid Asian hardwood, many of which come with a Maple Veneer. In addition, maple finished items, many manufacturer use Pine, Ash, Cedar, moreover, many of the woods often come with a range of finishes, for example a cherry finish. Because of the various types of wood, and the many available finishes that each type of wood can have, it still remains one of the most popular materials. Much of the wood used to create the wooden furniture come from specialised, renewable wood plantations, which specialise in creating more durable, stronger strength wood, with fewer natural problems, such as knots.
