Sheri Bush. Coffee Table. May 31st , 2017.
Wicker: At the mention of wicker, many people think of rattan fibers. But wicker actually describes the woven style rather than the fibers used in it. These days, many beautiful sets of outdoor furniture are constructed from synthetic resin wicker. This material holds its color well against the sun's rays and it is generally more weather resistant than the better known natural fiber wicker. As with wooden furniture, a wicker outdoor coffee table can be preserved by bringing it in during the winter and during periods of bad weather.
Think, too, about the amount of space you have for this coffee table. You can find tables in a range of styles and shapes. The size of your table will be determined by where you plan on placing it and how much space you have to work with.
Another rule of thumb is to keep the scale of furniture in any room uniform. A small stool in a large den with huge recliners and tables will look very odd. Thus, you must keep the sizing of the furniture in mind while purchasing them from the furniture store. You must choose practical secondary furniture for every room. If you like reading before sleeping, you can buy a side table to keep the table lamp and place it by your bed. Again, if you entertain guests in your living room, you can buy a useful side table and arrange it at the end of the sofa.
Nearly every home has at least one television, and depending on the size, TV's can take up a lot of valuable space. Be sure to keep yours on a piece of furniture that can be used for storing other items like books, DVD's and video tapes. Or, consider hanging the TV from the ceiling with a kit similar to those used in hospital rooms.
A common mistake is not making use of vertical space. Shelves and hooks give empty walls a purpose and greatly help to free up space turning them into storage areas. Hooks can be used to keep coats and scarves in one place and off of the furniture, as well as providing a good place to keep keys, umbrellas, purses and bags. Inexpensive shelves can be found in just about any store or it's easy enough to make your own with a piece of wood, some stain or paint, and a few screws and brackets. The unused space over windows is perfect for shelves that display items that you enjoy looking at but don't need to have handy.
