Being able to answer such questions will lead you to the best coffee table you're living room could ever have. 1. What style should I buy? There are many styles of coffee tables out there. Some have simple minimalist designs, some are modest, futuristic, some are ornate, some have intricate designs, and some tables are incorporated with as much detail, and some are designed to give the illusion of space. Don't buy a coffee table just because you like it or you think it will fit that extra living room space. Look at your living room theme first and choose something that does not clash with the present style or theme of the living room. 2. How big is the available space I can spare? Yes you might have an extra space that could use a table to fill up that boring void. But first carefully measure that space or you'd end up with a table bigger than the space you have which you may not be able to use at all or you'd end up with a table that falls short of your expectations.
If the space is small or pint_sized, it will make economic sense to buy a large coffee table with adequate storage facilities and equipped with drawers and shelves which can be used for storing lot of items. This will eliminate the need for buying small furniture like magazine tables, end tables, dining table etc. which could clutter the room.
