The coffee table is the focal point of your living space. It provides for the needs of your home, holding your books, magazines, cups of coffee, food and board games on game night. You might stretch out your feet on it at the end of a long day at work, or you kids might spend time playing with their toys or filling in colouring books on it. Your coffee table is important and, usually situated in the middle of your living room, it isn’t easily ignored. Whether you want your coffee table to make a statement or not, it is important that you choose the best coffee table to suit your living space. Below are our top tips for choosing the ideal coffee table.
Consider Your Coffee Table Storage Needs
If you require additional storage for your property, a coffee table with drawers, shelving or baskets is a great alternative storage option. Compact and contemporary, our coffee tables offer you the option of a storage-friendly space that helps keep your living room tidy and organised. Our coffee table storage options are ideal to store your remote controls, coasters and magazines. Alternatively, you could consider larger storage options such as baskets for a space to tidy away toys and blankets. The options are endless. With The Old Forge, you can work with our designers to adapt your coffee table to your property. Consider your coffee table storage requirements and we can work with you to select a design and style that fits those needs.

Consider Your Cleaning Schedule
When it comes to choosing the best material option for your coffee table, it is important to consider your cleaning schedule. If you are happy to regularly spray and wipe down your coffee table, a glass top will be no problem. However, if you don’t have a lot of time for cleaning or you want a coffee table that is easily maintained, wood may be a better option. Some material options are more high-maintenance than others and it is important to consider your cleaning schedule.
Do You Lack Living Space?
Homes in the UK often have limited space in living areas, meaning your coffee table needs to fit without making your home looking cramped. We would recommend leaning towards small coffee tables as this allows for more room for people to move around the room. As mentioned earlier, storage options are also a great opportunity to maximise the functionality of your space. If you lack living space, we have smaller coffee table options that could suit your requirements. However, if you do not find a coffee table on our website that is small enough for your living space, please do not hesitate to call us. Our designers can talk through your options with you and work to design a coffee table that is uniquely suited to your home.
If You Have Kids: Choose a Kid-Friendly Coffee Table
If you have kids, it's important to keep them in mind when shopping for a coffee table. Sharp corners aren’t good coupled with young children. It is also a good idea to avoid glass-topped coffee tables if you have children as they tend to show up mucky finger prints. We would recommend you choose a shabby-chic coffee table. With soft corners, a sturdy frame and a wooden top, the shabby-chic coffee table compliments most interiors, is durable and easy to clean and maintain. You can even add extra storage to tidy away all the kids’ toys before guests arrive.
