Coffee tables for small space 2022
How to choose a coffee table for small spaces, you will understand after reading this article! The unique coffee tables are a common piece of furniture in the living room. The round coffee table can store small items in the living room for us. The surface of the living room table can also be used as a space for placing vase decorations. When the guests at home sit in the living room, the coffee table can also be used as a place to place fruit plates and snacks. a place. Therefore, in most families, the cheap coffee tables is still a relatively practical piece of small furniture. Therefore, when choosing a coffee table, you must fully consider your living room habits in order to choose a practical and convenient coffee table for yourself. Don’t be careless when choosing. If you want to choose small coffee tables with both appearance and function, you must do your homework in advance. We should not only pay attention to its appearance, size, material, safety, etc., but also consider whether it matches the overall home decoration style.
First of all, color and material are very important. At present, most of the natural wood coffee table on the market are wood, glass, marble, and iron. Each of these materials has its own merits, and we must choose the one that matches the overall home decoration style. For example, the most popular light luxury style at the moment, you can choose a marble coffee table with a metal frame; Japanese style is suitable for choosing a light-colored wooden coffee table and so on.
Secondly, the size of the living room should be considered. Since the small apartment size is mentioned, it is obvious that it is very important to release more space, especially if there are children at home, the living room is the main activity place, and the selected coffee table must not be too large. Otherwise, the whole space will appear very cramped, which will affect the overall effect.
Third, practicality and convenience. The main function of the unique coffee tables is to carry some of our daily necessities, such as water cups, paper drawers, small snacks, etc. Therefore, while considering the aesthetics, we also pay attention to its carrying capacity and storage. In addition, there are both fixed and movable coffee tables currently on the market. Both have their own advantages. Generally speaking, the coffee table does not need to be moved, but considering the convenience of the side table next to the sofa, many people will buy wheels with wheels.
What material do you choose for the coffee table?
①Wooden coffee table
Wooden coffee table is a more common coffee table material. For example, in the style of simple and young people in northern Europe, the common coffee table has a light-colored original wood texture; in the more stable styles of American and Chinese styles, the common coffee table has a dark wood texture. of.
In light luxury, modern and other decoration styles, coffee tables with marble and slate countertops are also more common choices. Gray slate can make the space more modern, low-key and elegant, while elegant white marble can make the space look fashionable Classy and gorgeous.
The coffee table made of pure glass gives a clear and fresh transparent texture. After the light and shadow pass through, it is full of three-dimensional effect, which can make the space larger and more energetic. The shape of the glass coffee table is very suitable for a fresh and natural space, fashionable and modern decoration style.
Rattan coffee table gives a laid-back feel. In my spare time, it is very enjoyable to meet three or five friends, drink tea and chat together. Rattan coffee table can be matched with rustic or European style.
How to choose the appearance of the coffee table?
The coffee table is a piece of furniture placed in the middle of the living room. This is the intersection of the living room's moving lines. Choose a round coffee table. The surface of the coffee table has no edges and corners. The overall feeling is more comfortable, and you will not worry about bumping when you walk in the living room. In addition, the appearance design of the round coffee table is generally relatively simple and lightweight, which can be easily moved, which is suitable for small living rooms.
The square coffee table can be used in every position of the sofa, and the countertops for placing the tea set items are also sufficient, which is suitable for families who have a relatively large living room and like to drink tea in the living room. At the same time, the square coffee table can add drawer design storage function to the coffee table, which will be more practical.
In addition to square and round, the coffee table also has a triangular oval, irregular special-shaped coffee table design, which is also a more creative choice.
Details to consider when choosing a coffee table
①The corners should be smooth
As a piece of furniture placed in the center of the living room, the coffee table should have sharp corners. Try to choose a style with smooth corners to avoid bumps and injuries when walking around the living room.
②Drawer or not
In addition to the TV cabinet, the place for storage in the living room is the coffee table. If there is not much storage space in the living room, and there are items that you like to stack on the coffee table, it is best to choose a style with drawers when choosing a coffee table. Objects can be stored in drawers to avoid clutter on the coffee table.
③ The bottom is hollow
Nowadays, many young people will buy sweeping robots to clean up, and when sweeping robots are cleaning, some corners and corners cannot be cleaned, and the bottom of the coffee table is also a relatively easy place to get dirty. If you want to be lazy, when choosing a coffee table, see if the overhead size at the bottom is enough for the sweeping robot to get in.
The size of the coffee table
After choosing the material, you need to choose the size of the coffee table. In fact, there is no standard reference for the size of the coffee table, and the one that suits your home is the best. Generally, the size of the coffee table can be determined according to the size of the sofa. The length of the coffee table is preferably five-sevenths of the length of the sofa, which can not only ensure better storage capacity, but also will not affect people's normal walking and the overall balance of the home. The height of the coffee table should be low and flat. If a person sits on the sofa and the coffee table is no higher than the knee, it is more ideal. In addition, the coffee table placed in front of the sofa must have enough space. If the distance between the sofa and the coffee table is too close, it is easy to cause inconvenience.
