Choosing the Right Tables for Your Home

By Lisajolan @lisajolan
When furnishing your home, it’s important to make sure that everything you buy ties in well with the other furniture you already have. Choosing the right tables for your homeFor example, in the living room, the choice of coffee table can really bring the rest of the room together if you pick the right one. As well as looking good, a coffee table also has a functional purpose – a place to place drinks and snacks, as well as somewhere to put magazines and the remote control. Some people like their coffee table to double up as a footrest, if so when choosing a table you’ll need to make sure it fits with the height of your seating.Choosing the right tables for your homeThe shape of table you choose can have quite an effect on a room. For instance, a round coffee table can make the space around it feel fluid, whereas a square table will require a lot more floor space. A rectangular table often works well in a lot of different rooms.Choosing the right tables for your home   The coffee table should be about half or two thirds of the length of the sofa it stands in front of.Next, you have to think about the materials it will be made of. Wooden coffee tables are very popular. Find out if the table you are looking to buy is solid wood or if it just has a veneer (a thin layer of real wood on the top of plywood or particle board). Look at the way the legs are attached and how drawers are manufactured.Choosing the right tables for your homeGlass coffee tables have become increasingly popular in modern homes. They add a feeling of light and space to a room, while still providing a very practical surface for hot drinks and other refreshments to be placed on.Similarly, you should go through a similar thought process when choosing a dining table. Whether you have a separate dining room or a kitchen diner will affect the kind of table you choose. A dining room is purely for eating and entertaining, whereas a kitchen table may be a surface you use to prepare the food on as well as where you sit down to eat. Cheap dining tables aren’t necessarily to be avoided – they can be just as attractive as a more expensive one. However it’s worth checking underneath to see how they have been manufactured and assess whether they will be durable.Choosing the right tables for your homeIt’s a good idea to spend some time looking around at different tables for your home as you’ll come across some real bargains if you aren’t in too much of a rush to buy one.
