Wooden Coffee Tables: Wooden coffee tables have less safety problems as a rule than glass ones; however there are still hazards that can exist. One of the particular dangers commonly encountered is the problem of small children learning to walk who injure themselves on sharp corners. Many baby and parenting shops and even IKEA now sell corner bumpers; small rounded foam or plastic caps that help to prevent injury. Whilst these are not too attractive to look at they are a great way to prevent accidents and only need to be used for a relatively small time whilst your child is in their toddler phase. Similarly there are now "bumpers" available that can be run along the edges of any wooden coffee table. These are heavily padded lengths of material that fix to the surface to prevent injury. They can later be removed when no longer needed.
The size of your singular coffee tables is also a very important consideration. If you have larger scale furniture you want your coffee tables to be larger in scale also. A room can look odd and unbalanced if the coffee table is disproportionately larger or smaller than your other furniture. Keeping this in mind you should determine what size coffee table will best fit your space. You don‘t want to purchase a coffee table only to realize when you get it home that you don‘t have space for it because it‘s too big or that you have too much space because it‘s too small.
One style that many homeowners and decorators choose is convertible a wood coffee table. These are the perfect choice for those with limited space. Convertible wood coffee tables have a wide variety of uses while still being very attractive. Some people may not be aware of what a convertible coffee table is. There are many versions of these tables such as those with an adjustable height. This is just one example, however. This particular style is very practical for a member of the home that can‘t reach the table to eat due to size or illness.
As well as the safety features of coffee tables themselves there is also the important consideration of what is placed on the coffee table. Whilst a dining table might be out of reach for small children a coffee table is the perfect height for tiny fingers to investigate. Many small children have a particular fascination for coffee tables, spending hours investigating the treasures that they can hold. It is therefore important to think before placing hot drinks, glassware, china ornaments, nuts or anything else that could be a hazard on the surface.
