A round wood coffee table should be a wonderful piece of stylish furniture in your living room that is has a real wow factor.
But how do you make sure this actually happens?
The way to really get the most out of your new round wood coffee table is to simply dream. Dream about what you want the room to look like and imagine yourself in all the different scenarios where you will be using your new table. You may imagine yourself entertaining at your party, perhaps chilling out watching TV, playing with the kids or maybe even a romantic night in.
By first dreaming about the different things you want it to do for you, you can then start to focus on what it should look like and how stylish it should be compared to how functional.
And this is an important measure to consider because a round wood coffee table will often take on many different functions. So, really, if you want one that is great for the kids to draw on, eat dinner off but you still want it to look sleek, cool and minimal, then there will be a trade off. And if you don’t consider all the aspects before you take a trip to the new designer furniture store, you may come back with a very desirable but basically impractical piece of furniture.
Obviously price is another important consideration, but thankfully there are now many attractive, well made cheap coffee tables to fit most budgets. And if you’re on a really tight budget then you can always go for man made woods with a veneer or stain that give a wood effect.
So, after you’ve dreamt about what you want, write down what it is you want your new piece of furniture to do for you. Do you want it to be simple, stylish and elegant and mainly to look good? Or do you want it to be functional and enable you to eat off it in the morning or even for dinner?
it’s also really important not to get distracted by a round wood table that looks amazing but doesn’t fulfill all your requirements. For example, many are quite low so great for putting magazines on or your feet up but not good for eating off of. The great thing about round wood coffee tables thought is that there are designs to fit all your needs.
So here are my five top tips for choosing your round wood coffee table:
1) Dream up all the scenarios you will be using the table for. It must be functional and fulfill the requirements of your home.
2) Work out a budget. Although, you should think long term as a good quality wooden coffee table will last a long time, it’s important not to get caught up in the moment and blow the budget on a designer coffee table. You can easily spend 1,000s. It is possible to get some stunning cheap coffee tables if you search around.
3) Size up your room and understand how your new table will fit within the room and with the other furniture. You can be really creative with a new coffee table but it should still fit in with the aesthetics of the existing design.
If your look is formal with large furniture in a large room, you can get away with a large coffee table made from bold, chunky, dark hardwoods. However if you live in a studio flat, a smaller, lower, lighter coffee table with a glass top could work better.
4) Think about how you will accessorize your round wood table. You may like everything neat and tidy and just add a bunch of flowers and a couple of magazines to elevate the design, or you may like lots of comfort around you and even throw on some cushions and place some ornaments on it. When selecting yours, make sure it will work with the objects that will call it home.
5) Enjoy yourself and really try to be creative. There are so many beautiful round wood tables of all looks, finishes, designs and sizes. A round wood coffee table can really draw the eye in a room and create a real wow factor that creates a designer feel without breaking the budget. Try something a bit outside of your normal tastes and see how exciting it is to create a thrilling and stylish new look.
