Coffee tables are also used as end tables in some homes. Such homes may not have the space to have a coffee table a foot or two in front of the sofa or group of chairs. Placing them as end tables is a good solution, and they can still act as accent tables. End tables are also good for the placement of reading lamps when you need a little extra light for reading or hobbies, such as knitting, quilting, or needlepoint. Coffee tables come in such a wide variety of styles that it may be hard to choose just one for your living room or family room. A good rule of thumb is to match it with the rest of your room's decor. Is your room more streamlined, where bold colors and hard lines rule? Then choose a sleek and boldly colored coffee table to complete the look. If is your room softer in hues and filled with natural materials, such boldness in style and color will not do. Instead, look to a simple, lightly colored wooden coffee table to match your decor.
• You can also go for stencils, wallpapers or shelving paper to give more texture to your coffee table. _ • Remember to polish your table and use vinyl or plastic coating if possible so that you can wipe off coffee stains. However, if you choose something antique, this is a risk you will have to take. Just use coasters in order to see that beverage spillages leave no marks. Take proper care of your coffee table furniture. When you buy them from the local store or from any website, just check out the prices and quality before making your move. A good coffee table and coffee table furniture will always keep you in a good mood in eth morning and evenings as you take your rest with a cup of tea or a mug of coffee!
