Buying the right coffee table that fits your style and space is one of the most important steps of the decorating process. After all, this is a piece that should be more than just pleasing to the eye, it is also going to be functional.
How to Choose the Right Coffee Table
First of all, consider your lifestyle. Do you need something that can withstand heavy use by kids/family members/roommates? What type of material are you interested in? And what about your decor? The right piece can tie together even the most eclectic rooms and styles. And the retro look is perfecting for doing just that.
Consider Your Space
Big style often comes in small doses. If you live in a smaller space, you can easily adjust the size of your coffee table – without sacrificing style. Going retro can also allow you to find something in a non-conforming shape, which adds visual interest to any room.
If the space you’re furnishing is bigger, consider something long, low and sleek. This will add a sense of style and can definitely be a conversation piece. Again, one of the best attributes of the retro style is its versatility.
Getting the Best Value
Look for pieces that have the ability to withstand the test of time. And while we aren’t always sure of what the next trend is, the retro look continues to inspire and delight us.
Furniture is often passed down from one generation to the next. A retro coffee table can be a gift to children or even grandchildren later in life, as it will most likely be a lasting statement piece.
Be sure to look at the different materials that can be used to create a table. Again, consider your lifestyle and other furniture. This will ensure that you’ll get the best use from your investment. After all, this is a piece that you’ll probably have for a long time and you want it to last and look just as good as the day you brought it home – although a little wear and tear often builds character.
Getting a custom made retro coffee table is also something to consider. Do you have your own design in mind? Turning that vision into reality is definitely an option.
