Coffee table sets are essential in every home. They serve as excellent decorative pieces. They are also functional during parties when entertaining guests. Coffee tables with intricate designs may also be great conversation starters. They are crucial furniture for living rooms, as they help complement the theme of the room. Coffee tables with removable, transparent glass tops can serve as photo or artwork displays. They will certainly add aesthetic value to the theme, excellent for art lovers or photography enthusiasts to exhibit their work. Coffee tables can also be decorated with a vase of fresh flowers or a bowl of water with floating tea lights. Some people prefer arranging a few aromatherapy candles on them, while others resort in an assortment on books or magazines.
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.
Don't forget to measure how high your coffee tables should be as well. Generally, the height should be same or a little bit higher than the sofa seats it will complement. Seat down on your sofa and measure the height from the floor to the top of your bended knee. These tables should be either that high or an inch more or less, if you can't manage that. Too high and it will become an eye sore, too low and your guests will tumble out of the seat to use it.
