Amelie Faucheux. Coffee Table. December 26th , 2017.
A coffee table makes a good foot rest - more often than not working people want to put their feet up after a tiring day of sitting down or running around for their job related tasks. An end table is usually the same level as the sofa or seat and thus becomes an instant ottoman. Raising the feet or legs in this manner is a great way to allow blood to circulate normally back through the feet and legs. And if this is done while watching TV or sipping a refreshing drink it makes for a total relaxing moment at the end of a long day. Working people can also do this while reading doing some sewing or talking on the phone in order to prevent cramps.
No ladder? No problem - Yes a sturdy table can be used for instant elevation when a light bulb needs to be replaced curtains have to be changed or dust webs require to be swept away from ceiling corners. But never attempt this of course on glass or wicker tables. Only solid wood furniture types fit perfectly for this particular use. This can be another consideration why a wooden table is a better investment than a glass one - aside from the other common fact that glass is fragile and very dangerous especially in a household full of children. There are numerous instances wherein a homeowner would need that extra height especially for emergencies.
You have also the simple wooden coffee table which can be made of different hardwood like teak walnut rosewood cedar and oak materials. They are sturdy and have various kinds of finish. If you want it glossy you have it applied with polyurethane coating for protection. Choosing a wooden type is ideal if you have some kids in the house. If your home decor is the contemporary style one option you have is to choose a modern design to create an air of coziness and fashionable look to your interior design.
An impromptu workstation - Again more often than not space considerations have converted the erstwhile table for coffee into a table for just about anything. If one of the family members wants to work undisturbed the living room table makes for a reasonably isolated workspace for homework planning or typing on a laptop computer. This is practical especially in apartments or studio flats. The living room can serve the double function of an office or den.
