Decorating Ideas

A coffee table is one of the places where people gather round for a conversation. So, keeping that in mind, you should be decorating your coffee tables. A lot of you may assume that you should keep a tall centerpiece or a vase at the center of your coffee table. But, it acts a hindrance in a conversation.
Do not make the centerpiece so high that the conversation is disturbed. This is perhaps one of the most important tips on decorating coffee tables; and here are some other wonderful ideas you can indulge in.

Decorate With Runner

If you have a rectangular coffee table, simply have a runner running along the length of the table. For character, choose a runner with a beautiful work based on your choice. Apart from looking beautiful on its own, a runner adds a lot of character to the room.

Decorate With Candles

At the center of the table place some gorgeous tea-light holders and light them up with candles every evening. This is particularly great if you have a glass coffee table so that the light reflects on it and makes the table look absolutely perfect.

Decorate With Potpourri

People love potpourri and it's enticing natural fragrances. Put it in a crystal bowl and living space becomes mesmerizing!
In another idea, put the potpourri in a small fish bowl, toss in colored pebbles for a dash of color, seashells, or make layers of sand and potpourri to make a great centerpiece. Surround the bowl with tea-lights whenever you feel like just for some extra jazz.

Decorate with a Flower Vase

Place a tray on the table with a small flower vase and replace the flowers regularly. This table decoration always works without fail. Alternately, place shells, pine cones, or miniatures of your favorite items in the tray for some newness.

Decorate With Empty Bottles

Get a bunch of colored bottles (say old alcohol bottles) and place them in one corner of the coffee table. Say for instance, if the seating arrangement surrounds only two edges of the coffee table, place these bottles in an interesting arrangement in the far corner of the table so that it does not disturb any attempt at conversation.
Place a dry flower arrangement, some fresh blooms, or fillers such as white sand or wood shavings. You may also place some empty bottles on an interesting place-mat, tie contrasting colored ribbons onto the bottles for an added character and your coffee table decoration is ready!

Decorate With Your Favorite Books

Book lovers will find that placing their favorite books in an interesting pattern on a coffee table makes for a wonderful coffee table decorating idea and a great conversation starter. If possible, color coordinate a couple of coffee table books, simply stack them and place a tray with some interesting items of decoration on them.

Decorate With Stain Glass Patterns

If you are looking for a glass coffee table decorating idea, then try this. Create unique stain glass patterns on the table to make your own masterpiece. Stain glass painting is simple and something you will definitely enjoy. You can stain paint a small area or the entire table according to your choice.
If you incorporate these coffee table decoration ideas, you won't need any other enhancements to beautify your coffee table.
Whenever you implement any of these decorating ideas for your coffee table, remember that you do not want to clutter the table. All you want to do is enhance the table, not have it steal all the attention from the rest of the space it is placed in.
Be yourself, unleash your creativity, and try everything that comes to your mind. You can always change the decorations as and when you please, perhaps to create something better every time!
