Genevieve Palomer. Coffee Table. January 23rd , 2018.
The best place for snacks - especially if a teenager has friends coming over for a movie or for a study group. The coffee or end table is a great place to serve snacks while they do their homework. Bring out a big bag of chips and open a jar of their favorite dip and prepare some cold drinks too. Kids can gather around the table cross-legged in a relaxed fashion and exchange serious gossip while attempting to study for their calculus examinations. The parent can then be free from worrying about young visitors running around the house while giving them reasonable privacy at the same time.
A table for coffee traditionally was necessary in the middle of the living room. Home entertaining was a serious affair in the old days because of the ceremony of afternoon tea. When a guest makes a house call he or she must sit in the cushions and must be served tea or coffee with some biscuits or crepes. These will be arranged in a tray with a delicate china service and then served and placed upon the coffee table. Then the afternoon will be whiled away with conversation stories and news.
Drawers are another hazard for small children. Fingers are easily pinched and trapped. As with so many other areas of the home safety features may need to be incorporated such as drawer locks in order to keep your child safe. As well as the safety features of coffee tables themselves there is also the important consideration of what is placed on the coffee table. Whilst a dining table might be out of reach for small children a coffee table is the perfect height for tiny fingers to investigate.
The easiest answer is: What about both? You might have two living areas that could benefit from a coffee table and there's no reason that a wood coffee table and a glass coffee table can't be togethe in the same house. However it may be that space and budget are concerns and you may only be able to purchase one table right now. So you find yourself faced with a decision.
