Buying Guide: How to pick the best coffee table in India

The key to picking a perfect coffee table is 3 things. Style, Quality and Size. But apart from those, there are a wide range of other important factors. You don’t need to wonder what they are for we have decided to help you out with the very same. Before picking any coffee table, you need to ask yourselves a few important questions. Below listed are the top and main important factors that contribute for you picking the right coffee table.

1. Placement of the Table

Coffee tables are first and foremost, ambiance tools. For you to buy a great coffee table, you need to first understand where exactly are you going to place this piece of furniture. Before deciding on the style, pick the place. For instance, If it’s the drawing room for guests, you can look for a formal coffee table with a glass top. A living room could make do with a stronger and more durable plastic or wooden table with an additional shelf for extra storage. Glass tables are less bulky and easy to clean. Wooden tables are heavier but add a touch of class to the room along with the furniture. Plastic tables are multifunctional and can be used both indoors as well as outdoors.

Once you’ve decided on the room, the next question that arises is where in the room you would like to place it.

If it’s a smaller room then opt for an oval or rectangular coffee table which saves space. Larger and more spacious rooms are meant for square and round coffee tables. If children are around, it is always recommended to opt for either an oval or round table with no sharp edges.

2. Length and Height of the Table

Though this may vary according to your requirements and room, an ideal coffee table for the living room would be a maximum of two-thirds of the bigger sofa’s length, not more, with almost 2 feet of space between the table and the sofa. It can be either lesser in height than the sofa or equal to it, but shouldn’t be at a higher level than the seating.

The same goes for square shaped tables too. It should not be too high. Perfectly sized coffee tables are often knee length.

Talking about the typical garden tea/coffee tables, the need can be slightly bigger in height. This is so because the chairs used in the garden are slightly higher than those of the sofas.

3. Style Statement of your Room and Place

A coffee thing’s primary responsibility is to liven up your living space. This takes up the responsibility to brighten your drawing room, or living room or wherever you are placing the table.

If you are someone who likes retro styled, go for wood or brown coloured simple styles. If you are a bit hippy by nature, go for mosaic designs. A simple tripod styled tables will never go out of fashion.

4. Storage Space

You see that major teapoy styled coffee tables come with an additional storage space underneath of their table top. Either that or a drawer based storage spaces. For smaller homes, pick something that can be has closed storage. Owing to the comparatively lower living space, this will give you the space you need to store away and hide a few misc things.

For bigger homes and for garden coffee tables, you need not go for closed quarter style. Go for simple and open rack storage spaced coffee tables. This will give you ample space to place and store your daily newspapers or books that you plan on reading while on the little excursion to the backyard.

5. Materials Used

Coffee tables are made out of either plastic, steel, wood or glass. Depending on your surroundings, pricing budget and your moving profile’s requirements, pick one.

a) Wood: Coffee tables made out of wood are retro, strong and durable in nature. A wooden coffee table often screams of permanency. In a few cultures, it is also considered that gifting a wooden piece of furniture indicates a possible permanent bonding with the person.
If your house or surroundings have a retro look and feel, go for wooden tables. They may be expensive but are have longer life.

b) Plastic: Plastic tables are the most economic of them all. They are light in weight and easily portable from one place to another. Apart from that, they also come in various shapes,colours and styles. A perfect pick for budget couples, small families, bachelors and spinsters. But the only con to this would be the low quality of material. Hence pick from a trusted company that protects your purchase with a warranty.

c) Metal: There isn’t much to talk about metal tables as there are not many who prefer a metal coffee table these days. Metal tables are durable and strong. They cost not too much yet aren’t cheap. Another problem with metal tables is there are not much styles and designs available. Ideal for government and other such retro styled office spaces

d) Glass: Glass coffee tables are infamous about their breakage. Though, they are often minimalistic and have some of the most wonderful designs. They are a little expensive (on the range of wood tables). Perfect for high end households and garden and backyards.

6. Additional Functionalities and Uses

Do you just need a flat table top for basic use? Or would an additional drawer or shelf be more useful to store things? If the coffee table you are buying is relatively light in weight (not made of heavy wood), it is better to get one that has wheels for easy portability.

Frequently Asked Questions?

1. Should the coffee table be lower in height than the couch?
