Coffee tables for apartments come in the variety of material, shapes, and sizes. The choice is almost overwhelming – from vintage antique tables to ultra modern ones. Of course, your selection criteria can only be defined after you choose the main interior theme for your living room. After all, each furniture piece has its own style, and it should be an integral part of your room. One of the wisest options would be look for several furniture items at once – this way, finding matching pieces is way easier – plus, you always get a chance to purchase the entire living room set and save plenty of time.
If buying a compete set is out of the question, you should consider the most common types of coffee tables for apartments to choose just one – one that will become a great addition to your living room. Three of the most important aspects while choosing are material, functionality, and, of course – shape.
There are three of the most common materials that define the style of any coffee table. Of course, combinations are also possible – in fact, they are even advisable, as glass with wood or high gloss can create amazing, very stylish contrast.
High gloss – beautiful in a combination with other lacquered MDF furniture, high gloss tables are designed for modern and mixed interiors. Shiny surface sets up a cheerful mood and decorates all kinds of rooms – even the gloomiest ones.
Glass – glass is perfect for all kinds of interiors. Coffee tables with tempered glass surface are a classic choice for any apartment or interior.
Wood – wooden tables can be styled in antique or contemporary fashion; some of them even have a simple, rustic look. The choice of wooden furniture is vast, and anyone can find something to his/her liking.
If your living room space is limited, you should carefully weigh over the functionality of your future table. Some of them offer additional storage space, which is always beneficial – especially for small premises. Coffee tables for apartments can have exposed drawers – which looks a bit unusual, but very stylish; or, they can have hidden storage units below the table surface – which is so far one of the most functional and interior friendly approaches to room furnishing.
Surface shape will usually be either round /oval or square /rectangular. Yet, when it comes to table base, the number of potential design patterns is practically unlimited. Some bases can simple, while others – carved; some may feature additional chrome inserts, while others will be so abstractly shaped that any other decorative elements would simply be too much, etc.
Budget is another important thing to consider while choosing furniture. Different stores can have surprisingly different price tags on the same (or practically the same) furniture items. So, if you are looking for the best bargains, you should start searching for furniture in big retail chains rather than in small ones – most of the times, they can boast a better product selection and a way more reasonable pricing policy.
