I know a lot of people who struggle with Coffee tables. They tend to, what we call ‘over flood’ it. So here is the perfect blog for you, if you are an over flooder. We hope after reading this it might give you motivation to re-style/style yours and we would love to see, so do share with us!
- What can I style on my coffee table?
Stack books and place decorative objects, like bowls or a vase of flowers, on top of each. Individual stacks will help make it feel more compact and less cluttered.
-How do I style my coffee table? Look High and Low. When all items are at the same eye level, nothing gets noticed. Use the old age rule of threes comes in handy. Choose decor that plays off the colour of your coffee table. Always try and group your accessories to create statement pieces around the table and try not to use your coffee table as storage. It’s always good to create a clean elegant look. On square coffee tables, try dividing the surface into quadrants and display an arrangement of four main items: A stack of books, a tall plant, a tray, or a collection of bowls, for example. This grid feels organised and dynamic at the same time. Move items until you reach the best display.
- Should my coffee table match my end tables? Your coffee doesn't need to match your TV stand! Your furniture like your coffee table, end table, and tv stand don't need to match. You can feel free to match, for example, the end tables from one set, and the coffee table and TV stand from another, or any mixture of things.
-What shape should my coffee table be? A rectangular or oval coffee table works well for smaller rooms. Squares or round coffee tables are good for large seating configurations, such as large sectionals or a large sofa and love seat. Round or oval tables are useful around children because of the absence of sharp corners.
-How far should my coffee table be from my sofa? Distance between sofa and coffee table: 14-18 inches. You want the space to be close enough to reach for the remote or set down your drink, but far enough away to allow a little leg room. Follow the same rule for other seating in the room if you want to be able to reach the coffee table.
