The coffee table in your home is usually placed right in the middle of your living room and thus, often captures people’s attention first.
Hence, styling the coffee table is important to achieve an aesthetically pleasing space that will wow your guests and makes you look forward to coming home every day.
If you have no ideas, here are some effortless and affordable ways to spruce up your coffee table to take inspiration from.
1. Floral arrangements
Have a penchant for all things lovely and smile-inducing? Then get fresh floral blooms to decorate your coffee table with! The flowers will add a pop of colour and you can even double the sophisticated factor by using an artsy vase for even more pizzazz.
However, if the upkeep of the flowers sounds like something you do not wish to take part in, dried or preserved flowers will do the trick too. They are low-maintenance and will go perfectly with any rustic-themed decor in your home.
2. A stack of books
Look up “Pinterest-worthy coffee tables” and you will most likely see a stack of books being used as decorations.
This is one of the easiest ways to transform a mundane-looking round coffee table into something straight out of a magazine as you will be able to make use of what you already have at home.
Simply choose some books with the prettiest covers and stack them up, then leave your favourite ornament or even a plant on top of it for that extra touch of elegance.
3. A table runner
A table runner has been in trend for years and even though it is mostly used to protect the table from spills and damages, it is also great as a decoration.
Choose something that goes with the design of your home or coffee table to add colour, texture and interest with just one nifty item.
If you have a glass coffee table, go for a table runner in neutral colours and stack natural materials on it to achieve the completed look.
4. A tray
Apart from ornaments, other items you can consider displaying on your coffee table include scented candles and diffusers. Alas, having too many of these sitting on every corner of the table will only result in an uncluttered look.
Thankfully, using a tray to display those items will not just keep your coffee table neat, but also protect the tabletop from wear and tear.
A rule of thumb to follow is if the item cannot fit into the tray, it is high time to let it go.
5. A statement piece
Minimalist lovers will like this idea – instead of putting so much time and effort into looking for a few items to complement your coffee table with, opt for just one statement piece.
This way, you will be able to keep to the minimalist theme without overshadowing the design of your coffee table.
A sculpture or vase with some greenery is perfect for a stylish yet understated coffee table.
