Finding a Functional and Fabulous Coffee Table for You

by Aoife Ní Dhonghaile

Know Your Space

Before heading out to the stores, measure the space for your intended coffee table. If you know roughly how much room you have it will be easier to narrow down your search from the beginning. Eliminate anything too large as it will appear to encompass the whole room. Your coffee table should be functional and fabulous. Having one too large will decrease its functionality as you’ll be bumping into it to get around the room and it’ll start to feel more of a hindrance than a help. Contrastingly, try not to choose one too small for the space as it can throw the room off balance. Try and scale it to the space and its surroundings.

Know Your Budget

Another basic and yet important factor to have considered before hitting the shops. Think about how much you are willing to spend on the coffee table before you set out.
