Having coffee tables with storage is a great idea for anyone who loves to entertain. Luckily, multipurpose coffee tables with storage really are ideal to keep remote controls out of tabletop area and couch cushions clear. They not only help you organize and conceal odds and ends so that you have a more even and better looking space, but often give you a better chance of locating specific items when you actually need them. The secret is in knowing where to put your coffee tables with storage.
For example, the French Country coffee table features four deep drawers that are made from maple wood. There are shelves on both sides of the room that add to the organization and storage capabilities of this table. The drawers are placed reasonably close to one another, so they’re easy to get to if you want to grab a remote or flick through an entertainment guide while chatting with friends or family.
Many coffee tables with storage will include some type of flat shelf underneath the table. If you’re lucky enough to have this feature, you’ll love how easy it is to find your favorite magazines or a favorite recipe book without digging around. Magazine racks come in a variety of shapes, sizes and depths, and will either house a single, double or triple magazine rack or several at varying depths. A magazine rack that houses multiple magazines can make for an attractive way to display a collection of magazines over your coffee table, or to showcase a single favorite publication on a shelf that blends in with other items in your living space.
If you don’t have access to a shelf, you’ll have to find other ways to organize and store your stuff. One great option is a multi-drawer coffee table. Multi-drawers allow you to place various sized containers on top of one another for an organized and neat look. Common items to place on these multi-drawer coffee tables with storage are magazines, cookbooks, small papers, photo albums and holiday greeting cards. Some models even house DVD’s, books and CD’s, which will keep your home theater organized and well-organized.
Lift top coffee tables with storage offer a unique twist on an otherwise typical piece of furniture. They have a raised lip along one edge, which gives you the opportunity to open it up fully and display your collection. This allows you to display just what you need to without fear of knocking things over or getting items stuck in narrow shelves or cups. Most lift top coffee tables with storage come with a special glass lift top door, which makes for easy viewing of the contents when you open the door from either the front or back. Even better, lift top doors prevent dust from collecting in the drawers, allowing you to maintain a clean and modern look for your living room furniture.
Lift top coffee tables with storage solves many of the same storage issues as conventional coffee tables with drawers. The top of the table can be used to store items that are not in use. A good example of this would be magazines or small children’s toys. As soon as these items are used, they can be quickly and easily stored away in the drawers or other shelves located on the bottom of the table. If you choose, you can even have the table completely opened so that you can view whatever you want. This type of coffee table is perfect for those who like to entertain, as it makes for an excellent coffee table to set on end during happy hours or gatherings with friends.
Coffee tables with storage solves many of the same problems faced by traditional coffee tables with regular shelves and drawers. For instance, there is no longer any need to worry about items being scratched by chairs or tables legs, as items can be stored neatly in the drawers. This makes the living room safer for those who entertain on a regular basis. Many times, little items such as remote controls, blankets or towels slip off tables and become lost, which causes family fights, irritability and a general lack of harmony in the home. Again, this is easily prevented when a coffee table with storage is used.
Since most tables with under the bench storage come with a separate tray, you will need to purchase this separately. A plastic tray will allow you to store items on the table securely. When using the built-in tray, you should make sure to place the small items that fall onto the tray into its Underwood drawers. The Underwood drawers that come with most tables have enough space to store the items properly, although make sure that the trays are large enough for all of the trays on the table.
