While you can always look through catalogues and branded furniture shops, it is definitely much more interesting to keep your options open and hunt in other places as well. For instance, auctions, antique shops and sales, yard sales etc can come up with unique items with character and history to add to your décor. They might even be within your budget.
Many tables are built at around 16 inches tall, but some of the more modern choices can be closer to a foot tall. If you are looking for a comfortable and homey choice that people can put their feet on while they enjoy their coffee, you may want to choose an upholstered wooden table that will be more durable than a glass top. However, if you do have a smaller living space, it may be a great idea to choose a table style with a glass top that will allow light to penetrate and open up the space as opposed to a solid coffee table. One more benefit to a glass top table for your home is that it will show your beautiful carpet or wooden flooring through to all of your guests.
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.
