  • Think about what purpose you want the table to have. Will it be a spot to lay out magazines? Will people put drinks or food on it? Or is it just for design purposes?
  • Take a good look at the room it’s meant to go into before shopping around. How big do you want the table to be? Take measurements to help figure out the ideal size.
  • Pick a table that’s as tall as the furniture that will surround it so you’re able set drinks down.
  • Prevent drink spills, particularly if you have kids or pets, by choosing a table with a lip. This can also be useful if you like to entertain at your house often.
  • Choose a table with a glass top and a finish that blends in with the room if you don’t want it to be a main focal point.
  • Consider a vintage table for one that will spark conversation when guests visit.
