To help you decide, you must first consider the existing furniture and the general theme of your house. Your table shouldn’t clash with the existing otherwise you end up making something you’re not going to use. When thought out carefully, this type of table becomes the focal point of your living room especially if the table is made of the right materials. Therefore the next thing to consider is whether you’re going to use hardwood or softwood. The general rule is if the table will be used quite a lot such as when you entertain guests constantly, you live with kids, or you plan a wood base under a stone table top, you have pets, or plan to pass the table to future generations; you must avail of hardwood such as oak, maple and cherry. But if the table will be used as accent or decorative pieces then softwood such as pine will do.
The idea of CTs has been well exploited to suit the need of the moment. Designers hat have created CT have spent a lot of creative energy to make coffee table furniture. Having space to store magazines and books and space for cups and plates is extremely important and must be incorporated in the design. CT furniture includes all the items that go with making the coffee drinking experience one to remember and cherish. A great lamp, comfortable sofas, vivid cushions, music, the aroma of fresh brewed coffee that tickles the deepest thoughts and brings memories upfront.
If you have pets, don’t use softwood because stains, scratches, and dents show more easily. You are better off with hardwood because they are naturally resistant to stains and dents and this ability is even strengthened with the proper application of chemicals that protect wood finish. Think of the type of finish you would like your coffee table to have once it is completed. Would you like to have it painted or stained? You can also decoupage your table after either staining or painting to create truly unique furniture. Different types of wood will look differently depending on the type of finish you are aiming for.
