Man Cave Coffee Table Buying Guide
A man cave should ooze with personality and preferences of the occupant. This is why you should be selective on the furniture and fittings that you bring into the house. One of such important furniture pieces is a coffee table. Its central position in a living room always makes it the focus of everyone that gets into the room. This guide takes you through some of the important features and considerations that you should make when purchasing the next coffee table.
1. Suitability for its main purpose
If you are looking for a coffee table and not just any other table, you should consider its suitability to hold your food and drink as well as other items. It should be a relatively good height such that your visitors will not have to overextend themselves when lifting items from the table.
An ideal height deal height should be similar to your sofa or slightly taller. In the same breath, the surface should be flat to allow you to place items without wobbling to prevent accidental spillages.
2. Solid Construction and Stability
The main purpose of the table will be to hold items, whether food or other items. Choose a table that has solid construction, is resistant to scratches, and is stable. Some materials may get damaged by water due to regular cleaning while tables with uneven bases may be dropping your items repeatedly.
Solid construction also ensures that your table lasts long without the need for regular repairs or replacement. If buying online, check the finishing at the base as well as customer reviews on construction and stability.
Before you make an order or set foot in any store, check and measure the size of your living room. Then determine the proportion that you want to be occupied by the table. If you are not sure of the best size, go with a table that is half of the length of your couch.
If you go for trending oversize tables, ensure that there is at least two to three feet around the table so that people can move around the table without knocking things over. On the other hand, for the round, go for one with a diameter not exceeding 36 inches It may also be the best choice for a tightly squeezed room as people move with ease around round sides.
4. Added Functionality
You may also purchase a coffee table that does more than just holding your drinks. Some designs add functionality to the coffee table such as storage shelves and lift top mechanism. Check if you need the extra function with the table as the enhancements come at a price. However, some could save on space and cost.
For example, a lift top table can work as a workspace on top of being a coffee table. Tables with concealed storage are great for decluttering your living room and hiding the small items you do not want to show every visitor.
Remember, the coffee table is usually the centerpiece of your room. You definitely want guests to focus their eyes on a piece of furniture that looks stylish and matches with the rest of the room décor. Check on the finish, accents, and embellishments added to the table to improve its appeal.
You also go for natural, rustic feel if it matches with your décor or the high gloss warm paints for a sleek look. Besides, check the shapes and paneling too as they count towards the general appeal of the item in question. Unfinished edges and unsealed wood are a no-no unless you want a driftwood or natural-looking table. You may also consider unconventional shapes like some that we have mentioned above.
6. Cost and Assembly
Your budget is most likely going to determine the types of coffee tables that you will pick. Since you are not going to replace the table in the near future, consider saving up to purchase a reasonably good quality table. There are several reasonably priced table brands in the market with nice features, shop around until you get the best for your price.
You should also determine if you need the table that is already assembled or you are okay assembling one. The tables that require assembly come with instructions on how to go about it. However, if that is too much for you, consider picking one that is assembled. Unfortunately, most assembled tables lack added features found in their counterparts.
