The coffee table can easily be used to transform the entire design of your living room, so think about using a creative one!
The coffee table is an element often overlooked when imagining a home design. But if you know how to integrate it, you can obtain a special furniture item that will certainly enhance the effect you want. Don’t be afraid to go for creative coffee tables, since they are great in bringing up a personal touch of your living room design.
As much as you’d want to choose the craziest colors and patterns for your creative coffee tables, you should first of all think about your design. No matter how beautiful a bright yellow coffee table is, you can’t match it with a black and red color scheme in a living room design. Alternatively, you can go for creative coffee tables with customized designs in the colors you wish, or you can even do them yourself. You can use stencils, stickers or simple paint to create your own design.
Design does not only mean buying new things all the time, but also reusing them. With a little bit of imagination, you can craft creative coffee tables from old chests, old wooden boards or even scrap boards you have left from that time when you redecorated your home. Even more, you can repurpose parts of drawers or closets and build by yourself a beautiful and elegant coffee table.
For those who prefer a more rustic design, creative coffee tables can be crafted from sliced logs. You can ‘slice’ a log in several thinner or thicker pieces and put them together to arrange a nice coffee table. Place on top a longer piece of scrap wood and you can quietly enjoy your coffee in a rustic environment. You can easily make by yourself an industrial design coffee table, especially if you’re a car fan, if you take some scrap car parts (like a used, non-functional car engine or even a tire) and fit it nicely in a glass box. The effect will be wow!
An all-black coffee table can also be creative. You can use black cubes and arrange them and rearrange them whenever you have company and need a bigger coffee table, for instance. Also, you can customize it by sticking personal photos or travel photos to it. If you have kids and are really brave, you can dare to ask them to customize one of the most personal of all the creative coffee tables in the world!
Go for an aquarium if you’re the kind that loves fish or the sea. An aquarium used as a coffee table can totally bring an exotic look into your living room and it will definitely remind you of your holidays, helping you to relax while drinking your favorite coffee. No matter what design you choose, make sure that it fits your taste and that you are all safe while using it. Especially if you choose to include glass in the design of your coffee table, make sure that your kids will not be put in danger because of it! Then you can relax and enjoy your coffee!
