Does your living room need a fresh makeover? Are you tired of the same old, matchy-matchy, traditional wood grain furniture sets? Do you want to inject more “personality” into your living space? If this sounds like you, then you may want to consider giving painted coffee tables a try.
Painted coffee tables, and other painted furniture pieces, are becoming more popular as people are abandoning more conventional matched furniture sets. One reason is for this change is many people have decided that they would rather have a room that expresses their personality and really stands out from the ordinary room. Imagine using a charming white coffee table to give your living room a beachy or cottage-y vibe. Or, think of making a navy blue coffee table the centerpiece of your sitting room because it is your favorite color. You could even be totally daring and introduce a bright aqua or sunny yellow coffee table into your décor to express your bubbly, quirky personality. Whatever your style or design preferences, you can find a coffee table to complement it.
When mixing paint colors and wood grains in a room, decorators suggest that you pick one focal piece of furniture as a statement piece. Then, you can accent the room with other pieces, whether traditional or painted in other colors. A painted coffee table makes the perfect piece to anchor your room, if you choose to follow this advice. It can break up the monotony of using all wood pieces, and can work really well in standing out from a wood floor. Select a coffee table in a color you love, and then build your living room’s décor around it. In reality, though, there are no rules that you must follow. You can choose to match all the furniture in your living room to your coffee table, or you can mix and match the whole room. Whatever feels good to you and makes you love your space is what you should do.
Many people may think that they have to paint their furniture themselves to achieve this look, but this is not true. More and more furniture manufacturers are producing painted furniture to meet the growing demand for this style. You can find quality painted coffee tables and other pieces in many furniture stores and online in a variety of styles. You can even find some furniture with extra embellishments, such as tables decorated with painted flowers, or multi-colored painted tables. Painted furniture is also available in a variety of finishes, such as a distressed look that can make the piece appear more “antique.” No matter your style or color preferences, you are sure to be able to find a painted coffee table that appeals to you, without having to do the paintwork yourself.
So, don’t be afraid to experiment with interior decorating, and give a painted coffee table a try. These lovely pieces can really make a difference to your living room’s personality and livability.
