A square coffee table comes as no surprise
because this shape has always been one of the basic designs of
a table since man invented furniture.
If you’re in the market for a square coffee
table to fill that empty space in your living
room here are some interesting facts that
will help you before you venture out and buy one.
Though this shape of a table is perfect shape for most
homes, you shouldn’t just buy a table based solely on the
thought that it will fit that certain space you’d like
filled. You want to make sure with this piece of
coffee table furniture in place
there will still be ample still leg room to manuever.
Many individuals have made grave mistakes when it comes to
their coffee tables because the vfurniture was either too
big, too small, or that the design and the material did not go
well with the style or theme of the home’s interior.
You should consider the overall theme of your room so that
your square coffee table doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb
but rather complement all the other furniture in the room
creating a cohesive whole. When you successfully do such, your
table becomes an effective conversation starter in those times
you’d like to entertain at home.
For instance, if your home is of an Asian style then a
square table will not fit into the theme or if your home
has a Nautical theme then a coffee table that has an Asian
design will not look good in it. In the same manner a glass
table will not be nice to look at if it stands among ornate
furniture or metal furniture against an all-wood theme.
When it comes to pricing, square coffee tables can either
come cheap or expensive because they are priced not based on
the shape but based on the material with which they were
manufactured. For instance, marble coffee tables are more
expensive than wood.
Another factor that affect pricing is how the finished
product looks like. For instance ordinary wood design will be
much cheaper than those wood coffee tables with ornate carvings
or those coffee tables with other extra features such as a lift
top design or extra storage spaces built into the table.
If you’re the type of individual who is planning to move in
the near future, you might want to buy a square coffee table
that you can easily transport if you plan on bringing the table
with you but don’t want to spend that much on moving vans.
Marble is a heavy type of table so is metal and those antique
solid wood coffee tables but if they’re smaller then perhaps
they can easily be transported.
The next thing to consider is the maintenance of your
precious square-shaped coffee table. If you’re planning on
getting a wood table, you must have them refinished regularly
to keep them from being scratched and stained; if you plan on
getting a marble topped coffee table you should use gentle
cleansers not furniture cleaners because they will create
scratches on the marble surface. You can also cover both table
types with a thick glass top to keep stains and scratches at
If you want to own a square-shaped coffee table and want to
get the best on your purchase opt for a table not only based on
design but also on functionality. Wouldn’t it be better if you
have a coffee table that you not only can use to place your
food or drinks but also to store miscellaneous items such as
the TV remote or your house keys?
In acquiring your own square coffee table, you have two
places where you can order such. You can either go to different
furniture shops in your area make a list and do comparisons or
to make it easier you can surf the Internet for online
shops. Many shops on the Internet offer free shipping so
that makes getting the piece to your home simple.
