How To Style Your Coffee Table

How To Decorate Your Coffee Table with Style

Whether your coffee table is a DIY project thrift store find, a pair of Ikea end tables, or the statement piece you splurged on, it’s worth taking the time to decorate and style like you would any other area of your home.

Here are 5 tips to decorate a coffee table with style:

Start with a Tray
Large coffee tables don’t feel as massive when you layer on a tray. It breaks up the surface, and becomes the eye-catcher of the table. Try having the color of the tray coordinate with the rest of the room.

Vary the Height
It makes for an inviting focal point, and draws you into a room to have a look. Be sure to never exceed the height of the sofa. Add something in twos or trios such as the candles below (small, medium, large)!

Add Something Organic

When we are considering how to decorate a coffee table in a vacant property, we won’t use any real plant material. But we do use silk plants, and faux fruit.

Use Books

Using books to style your coffee table isn’t exactly original, but nothing else speaks to a target buyer quite so quickly. If the house has a beautiful yard, you want great garden books. If there’s land for horses, a book of horses underscores the point; the same with boating and /or fishing if there’s a river or lake nearby or use a few large, pretty art books to make a stack, and top it off with something decorative.

Strive For Balance
The easiest way to balance is to have matching lamps on the side tables and a few simple, larger items on the coffee table. Artfully arranged, anything can become a thing of beauty.
