A coffee table is not just your ordinary table, meant to occupy that space you have in your living room because these days, they are used to add a focal point to a room to make it more interesting. The task of finding the right coffee table is not easy as there are many questions to answer.
Many people with small children prefer a round coffee table as they consider the lack of sharp corners a safer option and less likely to cause accidents. Round tables can be difficult to fit into smaller rooms and can take up more floor space than other shapes. They can be very social however and are a good choice if you regularly sit around playing cards or board games. Consideration should also be given to whether you prefer a coffee table with legs or one that is solid to floor level. Raised coffee tables that allow a clear view under the table can help to create an impression of space; however solid coffee tables can often look more expensive and substantial.
