How to Decorate Your Coffee Table
A coffee table helps anchor your living room, it is also a convenient piece of furniture when you’re relaxing or entertaining. It holds your drinks, you can rest your feet on it, you can serve appetizers on it, and it’s another surface area to showcase your decor. You can add more personality to your living room with the items you choose to display on your coffee table. Here are 5 design tips on how to decorate your coffee table.
Trays keep everything organized and easy to remove. Use a decorative tray as the anchor on your coffee table decor. Trays are especially great for ottoman coffee tables – they provide a stable surface and can be removed if you want to use your ottoman as a footrest or extra seat.
For a clean and polished design, vary the height and scale of your decorative pieces. Too many small items can look like a cluttered mess of knickknacks and too many large, heavy items can make the coffee table look unbalanced.
Consider every vantage point when choosing the items you want to display on your coffee table. For example, a small framed photo can only be seen from one angle, but a vase of flowers or candle can be admired at many different angles.
Functionality is important when it comes to coffee table decor. The coffee table is the center of your living space – so make it practical. Small wooden boxes for your remotes or coasters for your drinks are simple yet ornate accent that you can add to your decor.
Keep your coffee table decor looking fresh by changing it according to the season. Display a beautiful seashell for the summer and a small charming gourd for the fall.
