Farmhouse coffee table decor ideas
Farmhouse coffee tables come in a variety of shape, sizes and colors. Some even offer storage options or a writing space that lifts up to the appropriate height.
Consider your space. What size and shape coffee table suite your area? What color do you prefer with your decor? Do you need storage? Pick a farmhouse coffee table taht fits your personal/family needs.
This one on the right has an amazing industrial rustic vibe. Plus the double layers allow for more storage.
Of course I had to add the classic white round farmhouse coffee table(on the right). I just love this look.
Coffee table decorative accents
There are multiple tips and tricks to adding decorative accents to your coffee table. I consider this the making it pretty and functional part.
Firstly consider balancing out the space and including it in the rest of the room design. Example: If the room is a library of books then add a book to the coffee table or items that would complement books(book markers, coasters for coffee, lamp). Evenly disperse items on the table to be balance it out. In another example: do not put 8 books on 1 corner and leave the rest of the table empty.
Consider a mix of high and low items to add extra visual appeal.(Maybe a taller candle holder with a 2-3 books in a grouping.)
Consider looking at the coffee table decor in sections(or a piece of pie) in three. Each third could be individually decorated but group nicely with the other 2/3 rd of the coffee table.
Use contrasting colors on your coffee table to add and extra pizazz to the room. Consider opposite colors of whatever color the coffee table it’s self is. If the table is white try dark colors.
A coffee table is the perfect spot for greenery. Consider a small plant or flower pot to brighten up the space and and some cheer to your room.
Add a tray to your coffee table. Trays are a great way to keep things bunched up neat and tidy and still be visually beautiful.
Add a trinket or game to spark playfulness or conversation(rubix cube, dominos, dice, cards, board game) to your coffee table.
Add seasonal decor to your coffee table. Note: I didn’t say holiday, but instead seasonal. If your change your decor with the season you will get a lot more bang for your buck. Consider Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.
Make it personal. Favorite book, tv remote, custom coasters, family picture…..whatever makes you happy.(see more personal tips below)
coffee table accessories ideas
When I think of coffee table accessory ideas I think of thing for my coffee table that enhance our home and lives(the personal stuff).
This could be as simple as a coaster or more complex like a universal remote or a portable speaker to pay music through out the house.
What tasks do you need to complete at your coffee table and what accessories do you need to complete them?
Accessories commonly on our family farmhouse coffee table include coasters, universal remote, note pad and pens, deck of cards, portable speaker(at times), catch all basket/tray and a candle(the power often goes out in the mountains).
These are all great coffee table accessory ideas to consider.
Coffee table decor tray ideas
I love trays. I feel like I could put them all over the house and still want more trays. They are extremely versatile and so easy to swap out when ever you feel like a refresh.
This tray is awesome. Perfect for so many little items and the wicker gives a great texture to any area.
These are a few great ideas for coffee table trays. Pick one that makes you happy.
Coffee table book ideas – must reads
