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.
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.
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.
