How To Choose The Perfect Coffee Table

Side table, end table, cocktail table, coffee table—whatever name you prefer we all need somewhere near our seating to conveniently place our coffee, tea, water and cocktails. Even somewhere to set books, magazines, mobile electronics and snacks. Depending on where they are placed in your room you may even utilize your cocktail tables to place home accessories. Here are just a few things to keep in mind when shopping for your next TMF 家匠 cocktail table.


One of the first things you must consider is what type of look you are searching for. There are so many options to choose from including size, shape, material, color, and style. Some opt for traditional end tables that can blend in with just about any design aesthetic, but you might prefer to make more of a statement.


While your primary goal may be to have a bit more surface area, consider fulfilling more than one of your furniture or storage needs. Many cocktail tables have drawers, shelves, and lids that keep your remote control and other room essentials out of sight. Keep things organized by adding decorative storage boxes to your shelves.

Multipurpose Ottomans

You can even find cocktail ottomans that have an upholstered lid that can flip over and be a sturdy drink holder—with a storage compartment underneath. This means you have a foot rest, seat, storage, and cocktail table in one. Ottomans are also easy to move from one room to the next while entertaining friends and family.

Statement Piece

Traditional coffee tables are designed to easily mix and match without competing with your statement wall, rug, or couch. However, you can also select a coffee table that is the statement piece of your room. While your end tables might match, your larger table could have a contemporary glass top, intricate gold base, rugged farmhouse finish, or can be the base for a statement work of art.

Cocktail And Dining Table In One

If you don’t have room for a full-sized dining table, your cocktail table can serve a dual purpose. Select a table you can store poufs or mini-stools underneath, or that is a comfortable height if you want to sit on the floor on an oversized throw pillow to dine.

Many Tables For Many Needs

Depending on the layout of your room, you might require more than the standard set of two end tables and one coffee table. If your seating is spread out or you have a variety of seating options, then you will need a variety of tables. Keep the color, shape, height and style of the end tables similar, and consider a statement coffee table.

Finally, feel free to think outside of the box with a repurposed or upcycled trunk, drum, sled, or handcrafted cocktail table.

Cleaning Your Home Efficiently

Handy knows we all dread that feeling when you finally have some time to yourself, but there are still the household chores to do. Do you start tackling them now or do you just kick your feet up and relax? You know the longer you leave it, the worse it is going to get, and the longer it is going to take. If you want to minimise the time your weekly house clean takes (and let’s face it, everyone does), we have compiled these helpful tips to maintain a clean home without much struggle.

When you have guests on the way, there is no need to panic, as if you stick to a simple plan, you will only need a few minutes to have your entire home looking like you just spent an entire week scrubbing it! However, if this is your first time giving your home the all-important “once over” in quite a while, follow this home cleaning plan to get the job done quickly. Trash First The first step is to work your way from room to room putting everything where it belongs. This essentially means putting all of the trash in the trash can. While you are clearing all of the unnecessary clutter, be sure that you straighten things up, as it is the most logical time to do so. Put things where you would like them, and begin moving things that you will need to sweep or mop under. This prepares each room for the coming steps in the process.

Clean From the Top Down It is time to start the actual “cleaning process”. Because you are now dusting and wiping things down, remember that everything you dust will likely either catch in your duster, on your towel or fall to the floor. This is fine, as we’ll address the floor later, but sweeping before you dust will add extra steps to your process, as you’ll have to do it again once you have finished with this step. This is an important part of home maintenance, and when conducted regularly, it will take only a few moments to clean your home. Wipe Down the Glass Now that shelving has been taking care of, it is time to clean the windows, television screens, or entertainment center doors. With a bit of glass cleaner and some towels, this shouldn’t take long at all. Give every pane of glass a decent once over. This should take some minutes per room, and because glass is something that everyone notices, the shine will enhance the appearance of each room. Tackle the Floors Now that all of the dust and grime has either been shaken out with your duster or wiped to the floor, it’s time to sweep, mop, and vacuum.

Use the same room order as before, as it will help you get into the habit of a home cleaning process that is efficient and memorized. Now that your home cleaning operation has concluded, you have a clean home that provides a fresh start for your future cleaning habits. If home maintenance is something that you struggle with, consider the use of a cleaning service. You can find packages online that handle all of the light cleaning for a reasonable cost, ensuring that your home is a welcoming environment for friends and family. In the end, you’ll have a residence that you can be proud of, and you needn’t panic when you get the dreaded phone call that your mother-in-law will be over in fifteen minutes!
