Best tables for your family room
Tables are vital pieces of furniture to every home. They are great spaces for friends and family to gather around and enjoy each others’ company, or serve simply as a designated spot to set things. The family room, or living room as it is also known, is an especially important room for tables. The most common table in the family room is the coffee table. These low tables are typically found in front of couches and function as the perfect place to sit down your food and drink, prop your feet up, and display your favorite magazines of the week. We’ve compiled a guide of the two best coffee tables ideas and alternatives for your family room.
Oversized coffee table
If you have a lot of space in your family room with high ceilings, you’ll want to make sure that a large coffee table is the centerpiece of the room surrounded by a sectional couch. These oversized statement pieces can come with cabinets for storage, like this Enitial Lab Baree Storage Coffee Table, or they are sometimes simply one level. Either way, make sure you have coasters to protect the finish from any water marks.
These tables vary in height, but generally work well for small spaces. Originally used for serving tea, these tables can also double as a wet bar, if they are tall and long. Tall but more compact tea tables look great at the end of couches or next to love seats as a place to set your drink. Lower tea tables serve the same purpose as coffee tables, but since they are smaller, they might not have the same storage capacity. To ensure that your room doesn’t look overcrowded with furniture, get a glass tea table. The glass looks delicate and elegant in small spaces.
