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.
Most coffee tables are designed with drawers for convenient storing and organizing. Some drawers come with locks for privacy and safety. Some coffee tables have matching sofas or settees that are relatively cheaper than buying them separately. Other interesting features that some coffee tables have are removable glass tops. This allows homeowners to remove the glass top, arrange photos or artwork on the table and put the glass back on the tabletop to protect them. Some coffee tables have a compartment under the glass top and this is great as small, decorative items can be arranged in it. For example, pebbles can be arranged in it to achieve the Zen look.
Durability is another issue you should keep in mind. They tend to get used roughly; hot coffee mugs leave rings and scratches, wine glasses and beer mugs chipping into glass tops of paint, kids bumping into and knocking them off easily due to their lighter weights. Especially, if there are kids in the house or you tend to have many guests coming over and end up using the table frequently. So, select your coffee tables based on their durability requirement as well.
