Every living room needs a centerpiece. Something to catch the eye,  brighten up the room, and impress your guests. However, most people choose to incorporate lavish furniture into their homes to achieve this effect. But usually, the results are poor. That’s why we at Imperium Furniture recommend a stylish, yet a modern designer coffee table that is perfect as an accent for any room.

However, in order to avoid dissatisfaction, you need to address a few problems as you choose your perfect coffee table for your living room.

Problem #1: A Poor Fit

If the table is too small, you are risking it to look like a coffee table of a dollhouse. But, if it’s too big, it overpowers the design of the rest of your living room furniture. This is why it is of utmost importance to get just the right size of a coffee table for your room.

You are aiming for just the right size coffee table that would team up with your other furniture and make the whole living room feel like out it came out of a designer magazine.

Start with your living room set. You can check our living room category and our coffee table category for suggestions. Measure your couch from the top of the seat cushions to the floor.

Your coffee table should not be any taller than that. Afterward, measure the length of your sofa. You should choose a coffee table that’s no more than two-thirds of that distance.

Problem #2: Poor Flow

Are you familiar with the kind of living rooms where getting around the coffee table in the center is treacherous? If the flow of the room isn’t right, it’s extremely likely to bump and trip on the coffee table.

This is why when it comes to arranging your room, placement is such an important detail.

It is more or less a must to leave out between 12 and 19 inches of space between the living room centerpiece and the seatings. So, if your room is small, you are better off with a small coffee table.

However, if your room is larger, make sure you do not place the living room centerpiece farther away than 18 inches from the living room set because people won’t use it for the intended purpose.

Problem #3: Poor Design of the living room centerpiece

Your interior design should be enhanced by your coffee table, not detracted. However, you should be careful not to get so caught up in the practical aspects that you throw your detail-oriented side out the window and completely forget the appearance. Often, this leads to furniture that is boxy, boring, and dull.

Of course, there is always good news: you can still add interest without stealing the show completely, with the help of carefully chosen coffee tables.

Your options are, but not limited to, traditional rectangular wood tables, tables with storage space, curved legs, chrome bases, glass tops, and even round coffee tables with seating.

Problem #4: Poor Quality of the living room centerpiece

The great thing about designer coffee tables is that you can use it with many different types of décor.

You can use it for years even as you change your color scheme and décor style. Therefore, you need to get one that’s made of high-quality materials and constructed with care.

The best way to ensure you end up with a durable, attractive coffee table that suits your space is to go to a furniture company that has a wide selection of high-quality coffee tables to consider.

From there, you can choose a table that works best. And looks gorgeous with the rest of your living room furniture.
