Where can you Put a Coffee Table? The best thing about having coffee tables in your home is that you can place them anywhere you feel like. Is there a specific spot in the house where you like to drink your coffee while reading the newspaper or watching the television. Then you know where to keep it. Otherwise, you can have more than one coffee table in your home. What Size is Appropriate? Usually coffee tables are portable and small, fit for one person to use at a time. But you can have a slightly bigger coffee table if you want so that you can place some food along with the coffee mug once in a while to serve guests or enjoy your evening snack. There are adjustable coffee tables available which can be fit in almost anywhere.
Planks are Good _ A plank sitting on two trestles is functional, and your visitors will ask why you chose it.

You could also use an ottoman as a coffee table and footstool combined, or even varnish and paint orange boxes _ they are easily replaced if you decide to change your color schemes! If you decide to buy a coffee table rather than make one yourself, try to make it blend in with the rest of the room.

Buy what you like, whatever catches your eye, and if you cannot find something controversial, find something to put on it that will provoke discussion!
