4 Coffee Tables to Suit Every Taste

Last update: 26 October, 2018

Not sure which table will best suit your living room? In this article, we’ll show you 4 coffee tables for every taste. We’re sure you’ll find one that will suit your needs and the size of your living room. Whether you’re someone who uses your coffee table for everything, or just as somewhere to leave the TV remote or a magazine, you’ll find the perfect table for you.

Glass coffee tables, the subtlest choice

If you’re looking for a coffee table that will go almost unnoticed and won’t steal attention away from the rest of your living room, glass-top tables are the best option for you.

Glass tables are available in a range of shapes, sizes and styles, so finding the right design should be easy. How expensive it is will depend on the type and quality of the glass. Another option is to choose a coffee table made of methacrylate, which is a more durable and economic material.

While it’s true that these tables are elegant and can adapt perfectly to any decorative style, we don’t recommend them if you have young children. As everyone knows, glass is a fragile material and can break easily, so it’s important to be careful with these tables, and clean them frequently.

Glass-top coffee tables are more subtle, and won't attract attention away from the rest of your living room.

Lift-top coffee tables, the most practical choice

If you’re someone who uses a coffee table for everything, lift-top coffee tables are the perfect type for you.

This coffee table has two different positions. The first is the conventional coffee table, and the second allows you to increase the height. This means you can use it as a place to keep things, but also as somewhere you can eat comfortably.

There are coffee tables to suit every taste. You can find this type of table in different materials, such as wood, or metal. To change the height, all you need to do is move the top half on its hinges – with just one small tug, you can raise or lower the table top.

Why have one coffee table when you could have two? Nesting coffee tables are an increasingly common sight in furniture shops today.

Some are identical, and fit together so that you can have two separate tables, or a single one.

Others are identical in everything but their height, creating a set of two tables, one above the other.

If you’re looking for something stylish, we recommend that you go for the second option. But, if you’re looking for something more practical, it’s best to have two identical tables you can combine.

This type of table isn’t recommended for smaller living rooms. They can take up a lot of space, and instead of making your life easier, the can actually become an obstacle in the middle of your room.

Designer coffee tables, the most stylish choice

If your living room is decorated in a modern, avant-garde style, the tables we’ve looked at up until now might not work design-wise. But you can also find tables that are more extravagant, more original, and even slightly strange.

If you decide to buy a designer coffee table, it will be the star of your living room. 

Whether it is a round table or a tiered table, it’s going to attract attention.

You also need to be aware that, because they are designer tables, they are usually more expensive than other tables.
