Top Tips To Buying Cocktail Tables For Your Living Room

Top Tips To Buying Cocktail Tables For Your Living Room
4/14/2020
Cocktail tables are the grown-up version of a coffee table. Enhance your lining room or seating area with a stylish table that fits your décor and budget.

Are you searching for the perfect table to finish your living room? Whether you call them coffee tables or cocktail tables, it’s important to have somewhere for your guests to set down their drinks, a place to put your book, or display a favorite trinket. In order to find a table that matches your budget and décor, here’s what to look for.

Choose the Right Size

Before you head to the store, take a few measurements. First, note the height of the chair or couch seat which will be next to the table. In order to make it easier for guests to set down their drink or plate of snacks, the new table’s height should be slightly shorter than the seating. In general, 15 inches tall is best. Next, measure the floor area where the cocktail table will be placed. Allow 15” to 18” around the perimeter of the table for walking space. However, if you must choose one way or the other, it’s better to have the table a bit too big than too small. Or, consider two small square tables instead of one large rectangle.

Choosing Style and Shape

Look at the size and décor of your room. Is it modern or traditional? Relaxed and casual or elegant and formal? Is the room large or small? All of this comes into play. A round table is perfect for a more casual home; a rectangle is usually more classic. Clean lines are generally more casual while ornate, cabriole legs reflect a traditional look. And, of course, a small room needs a smaller table. If you prefer your room to look light and breezy, consider choosing a table with thin legs. A block table looks heavier and dense.

What Material Do You Want?

Although most cocktail tables are made of wood, glass, or metal, you can also find tables in stone or upholstery. Choose something that complements your room. If you choose a wood table, be sure to have the finish tone match the rest of your furniture so it will blend. A glass table is perfect for a small room because its visual space is less. Metal tables have a more industrial or modern look. On the other hand, it can also be fun to use the unexpected such as an antique wagon, an unusual shape, or something handmade.

How It’s Used

Will your table take a beating? Will your family also use it for a foot rest? Do you need extra storage? Is it a table that will display your shell collection or antique books? If you need something special, be sure to ask for it. It may cost a bit more, but in the end, you’ll be glad to have it.
