Wooden coffee table is one of the smallest yet one of the most important pieces of living room furniture. A carefully selected coffee table or a wooden stool enhances the aesthetic appeal of the living room as well as improves it functionality because it has a practical value as well. After all, where would you put the beverages and cookies when receiving guests and enjoying the TV after a long day at work?
Coffee tables are available in many different materials, however, solid wood remains the most popular choice. It is easily combined with the existing furniture but it also creates a unique and very special atmosphere. Glass coffee table for instance can look beautiful as well and is very easy to maintain, however, it appears kind of cold.
In addition, it is not impossible to break it which makes it dangerous if you have young children. Very popular are also coffee tables which are made from engineered wood because they often look as if they would be made from solid wood and are considerably less expensive.
But they are more prone to wear and tear and as a result, they need to be replaced within a few years. Coffee tables that are made from solid wood, on the other hand, can last a lifetime if cared for properly. Wooden coffee tables are available in a wealth of styles, designs and colors and finding one that meets your taste for beauty and specific needs perfectly really is not a problem.
You can choose between the traditional rectangular wooden coffee tables with four legs and ultramodern designs which give a contemporary furnished living room the final touch. Then, there are coffee tables which are made with functionality in mind and may feature drawers, shelves for magazines, wheels to be able to move it around with ease, etc.
in order to allow you to optimize the space available and achieve a perfect blend of functionality and style. In addition to having the ability to choose between literally countless styles, designs and colors, you can also choose between different types of wood.
Just about every wooden coffee table is a good choice and you cannot go wrong if you choose pine or walnut, however, there are a few important differences between different types of wood other than their aesthetic appeal. Wood can roughly be divided into two categories – softwood and hardwood. The first category refers to timber which is obtained from gymnosperms such as conifers for instance, while the term hardwood encompasses wood from angiosperm tress most of which are deciduous.
Why is this important? Because hardwoods have a more complex structure than softwoods and like their name suggests, they are also harder and stronger in comparison to softwoods. But they are also more resistant to scratches and wear and tear, and are generally also more durable. Lastly, hardwoods are rarer and coffee tables which are made from hardwood therefore give the living room a unique aesthetic appeal and a sense of prestige.
