If you own your home, you're probably planning to stay there for a while, so you aren't as limited with your choices. The sofa will be the biggest purchase in your living room. Besides the wall colors, it will be the part that everything else will center around. In other words, you won't be getting a sofa that goes well with your accessories, but rather your accessories need to blend with your sofa and walls. The most common accessories for your living room are lighting fixtures, wall hangings and sofa tables.
Color is an important feature in home decorating. You want colors that will blend nicely with each other. Soft neutral colors like beige or sand mix well with almost any style or design of furniture. The addition of one or a few of them will give your room a completed look. Contemporary sofa tables work perfectly if you have a small wall that you don't know what to do with. This can be the perfect spot to display your favorite items. Many contemporary sofa tables look similar to a desk, with the top shelf and shelves on the side, with the bottom being open and ready for a chair. This appearance is what contributes to their beauty and functionality. You can find these fully assembled or needing minor assemblies as well.
If your room is in a feminine style, a curved or ornate table could well be ideal. If your style is more masculine, simple shapes are more appropriate.
Coffee tables and end tables get a lot of attention in homes, but there are other tables you may want to consider as well, such as console and sofa tables.
- Length - It doesn't get any tackier than looking at a sofa table that sticks out past one end of the sofa. It looks like someone wasn't paying attention to the details of fitting furniture together. And that's probably exactly what happened. Instead of trying to figure out a way to cover up ill-fitting furniture after the fact, take the time to measure the length of your sofa and make sure that the table will fit well within its limitations. It's OK for a table to be a little short, but having it stick out past the sofa is not going to look right.
If you love entertaining guests but live in a small apartment, what do you do? You want to have a small dinner party but don't have the table space to seat them all. Do you give up your hopes of entertaining your friends until you can afford a larger home? You can rest assured that there are other options for you and your guests. First, your guests are going to be more concerned with spending time with you than they are the size of your home. Secondly, you do have options available to you. Sofa or console tables are the perfect option for your small home.
There always seem to be some confusion about these two styles of tables. Originally, a console table had just two legs and was mounted to the wall, allowing it to look as if it were standing on just two legs, as the bracket was invisible. In later years, some console tables gained a second pair of legs, making them much more like their sofa backing counterparts. The very word console means ledge, and these tables were inspired by the desire to have a shelf in a convenient location, especially in a hallway. Designers simply added legs to give them more stability as well as drama.
