Cocktail Table- How to Choose a Perfect One for Living Room?

Cocktail table commonly referred as coffee table or occasional table is the centralized piece in your living room. This is the table used for serving cocktail snacks, coffee, to put your feet on while relaxing or keeping your newspapers, magazines or books. The coffee table is kept in front of the sofa and it completes the look of your living room décor. Your choice of cocktail table also reflects your personality.  There are many types of cocktail tables available in market from traditional designs to contemporary. When you are going to pick your cocktail table there are few things to keep in mind:

1. Determine you furniture style: Scan the style of furniture in your living room and decide whether it’s Traditional, Modern, Victorian, Exotic or Contemporary. Pairing a traditional coffee table with contemporary sofa can be a big mismatch.
2. Measure the space: Before going out you must measure the space available and find the particular size of cocktail table that can fit in the living room.
3. Check your budget: You must plan how much you want to spend before going out. It’s always better to shop having a budget in your mind.
4. Compare Prices: If you have chosen a particular cocktail table for your living room, just go through other vendors’ websites or brochures for price comparison. Sometimes a local vendor can get you the same item at very low price than designer showroom.
