Lastly, a coffee table regardless of any material or color does come in many shapes. The most popular shapes are rectangular and round. Choosing a table`s shape should depend on the amount of space in the room, suitability of the shape to the other furniture, and/or whether or not you have young kids at home who might accidentally bump onto rectangular table edges.
Rustic coffee tables are available in various shapes but the most commonly seen shapes are round, oval, square and rectangular. Generally round and oval have similar features, the only difference is that an oval table is able to cater more people than a round table otherwise both the shapes have smooth edges to it which reduces that chances of you and your family from hurting themselves with the corners of the table. Whereas, rectangular and square tables are generally bought by those who have a bigger room as these shapes in table cater more people than a round or oval table can. these tables have rough edges therefore you have to be careful while you walk around it in order to avoid yourself from getting hurt.
Unique coffee tables with glass tops are an excellent place to put artwork or beautifully designed coffee table books.The glass top enhances what you display and also because of the transparency creates the illusion of more space.
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.
Wood is the most popular material in a coffee table, they are perfect for those who have rustic or traditional design themes in their home. There are also many wood selections that a furniture buyer can choose and they are: oak, pine, cherry, oak, walnut, cypress, and teak. If you`re going to make your own table, your choice of type of wood will be determined by the use (and abuse) the table will incur and the design you`re making (simple or carved). For heavy duty use, you can choose strong wood and if you`re just using this type of table as an accent piece, then you can choose softwood.
The size of your singular coffee tables is also a very important consideration. If you have larger scale furniture you want your coffee tables to be larger in scale also. A room can look odd and unbalanced if the coffee table is disproportionately larger or smaller than your other furniture.
