Coffee Table Singapore
In most homes, particularly the living room, the coffee table is usually placed between the TV console and a little closer to the sofa. After all, this versatile furniture serves multiple functions all at once. A coffee table doesn't just acts as a side table, it stores magazines, coasters, TV remotes, and in some cases, is used as a fashion statement as well.
When You Need Something More Than A Side Table.
Coffee tables have evolved over the years, both in terms of design and function. Many of our manufacturers produce beautiful tables that combines aesthetic elements with cabinetry craftsmanship to create multi-functional masterpieces.
Things To Consider Before Getting Your Coffee Table
Before you decide on which coffee table to buy, here are the few things that you should take note of:
The Width Of The Coffee Table
There are many key considerations when it comes to buying any form of cabinet furniture, but none more so than the coffee table. Because when you think about it, they're often the immediate centre of attention in any living room. Hardly surprising given the fact that they're right smacked in the middle of the room.
But as a general rule of thumb, here are a few pointers to take note of while choosing your coffee table:
- The height should never be higher than your sofa
- The size should not be more than two-thirds your sofa’s length
- There should always be adequate space at both ends
It is important to note that there is no one-size-fit-all coffee table and you should take your living room’s design and layout into consideration as well.
Visible Or Hidden Storage Compartments
To cater to the growing needs of different households, there are more coffee tables today that come with built-in storage that serves as a type of mini compact cabinet. As newer Singapore apartments tend to be smaller, the extra storage space can really come in handy. Even for something as simple as storing your coasters for the occasional ice cold beverage or two.
You are thus advised to evaluate your household needs and determine what kind of storage (if any) your living room requires as you filter and shortlist the most suitable coffee tables for your home.
After all, having a drawer or storage underneath the tabletop does help make your living room look neat and tidy as you can now “hide” your loose items into the drawer and make things more organized by having a fixed place to keep your accessories like TV remote controllers.
Coffee Table Material
We also usually recommend our buyers to choose the material of their coffee table based on each situation.
While a glass coffee table provides classier and modern look, it is naturally more difficult to maintain (as stains are clearly visible) and could be dangerous if you have small kids in the house.
If (like most of the households in Singapore) both you and your spouse are working and do not have much time to maintain the coffee table, a sturdier material like wood may be a better option for you.
While slightly pricier, side tables made of all solid wood are much more durable and will be a good choice for anyone desiring a wise long term investment.
