How to Choose a Coffee Table
Determine your needs
Buy your coffee table based on what it is to be used for. Is it for decorative purposes or will it be a stand-in dining table for meals?
Measure correctly
Use the height of your couch as a guide to choose the correct height of your coffee table. The table should be of equal height or lower.
Shop smart
Choose the material for a table according to your needs. If you have kids or a dog, it’s best to avoid glass.
Be unconventional
Think outside the box. Sometimes alternative options such as ottomans and wooden chests make ideal coffee table alternatives.
Take your time
As this is a feature item, search for the perfect table online, visit yard sales, and even look in antique shops for a bargain.
