Using excessive furniture in the house is definitely not a good idea but leaving an empty space which could be used for a practical piece of furniture is not wise either. Small or round coffee tables are such piece of furniture which if designed or placed sensibly can provide various benefits and serve varied functional purposes.
We constantly endeavor to decorate our home with attractive and functional furniture. so even a tiny empty space in an already interior decorated room may seem like a good place to re-try our decorating skills. However it is important to consider what will be the purpose or utility of that piece of furniture and what is the appropriate size of the furniture that you should be buying for that small empty space. most cases, a coffee table could be your answer. The available space will help you decide whether you should go for a small round coffee table or a bigger or differently shaped one.
To decide on the right size and shape, its important to identify what purpose you want the coffee table to achieve and what will be the extent of its use. If you have many family members then it would be prudent and practical to buy a long regular table or two small square coffee tables which can easily accommodate multiple cups, bottles or snacks and will thus be convenient for a large family’s use.
A small or a round coffee table can have multiple uses too. On one hand it can properly occupy the empty space between an ‘L’ shaped sofa or alternatively it can serve as an end table if fit neatly near a wall.
What are the benefits of a Coffee table?
A small or a round coffee table may not be limited to serve a drink but can also be used for card games, meals and by kids to play their board games. It can even be used to keep a lampshade and add that extra beauty to your room. Since coffee tables are generally low, they can have multiple practical benefits if used wisely.
Depending on ones choice and requirement, the coffee table can be of any size, shape, color or material. The size and shape of your coffee table can be selected as per space availability and a small space should not be cramped by a large sized coffee table. Similarly, the color too should coordinate well with the d'cor. A chic and modern coffee table may not blend well with vintage, antique d'cor. The material used for a coffee table too can vary. Depending on your choice and requirement you may select a coffee table made of glass, wood, metal or plastic. Whatever material you choose, you could fit a drawer or a shelf under your coffee table which can easily store magazines or children’s board games etc. Whatever the size, shape or material of the coffee table, you can make multiple use of it. So whether you use it as merely a coffee table or as a stand for decorative items, the choice is yours.
