Finding the right coffee table can be quite a challenge.  Getting the right fit for your space isn’t an easy task.  I always prefer larger scaled tables so that I can display more items but then again, simple, smaller tables look clean and uncluttered.  Then there’s the decision on what material or wood to use.  So many choices!!  Here are a few tips that I always consider when looking for a coffee table.

-Decide if you want your coffee table to take main stage or be the best side kick that it can be.

-When choosing a coffee table for a small space, make sure that it’s multifunctional with a good amount of storage and room for those awesome collectables.

-Your coffee table can bring color into your space, if working with a neutral space.  Consider choosing a fun, bright color.

-Natural materials can make the best table.  Consider rock, wood, cork and other organic materials.

-If you’re trying to save money, consider using un-table tables like suitcases or a bench.

-Shop thrift shops, flea markets and garage sales for creative alternatives that don’t break the bank.

Whatever you decide, have fun with your coffee table decision!!

I love that second coffee table! Clean lines, beautiful room and still space to place baskets or something for storage underneath. Beauty!
