If you reside in a smaller home or an apartment, then you are well aware of how difficult it can be to find a coffee table that fits your needs. Let’s face it, most coffee tables are either large enough to fit multiple people (which is not necessary) or they’re extremely long and take up too much room, in all actuality you want to find a coffee table that balances the room in a cohesive manner. With that being said, here are a few coffee table ideas for your smaller apartment that will enhance the room and give it a stylish new look.
While a hexagon table might be a bit too big for most, it’s the perfect statement piece to have even in the smallest living room. The unique shape of the table will brighten the room and bring a focal point without taking over the room. Additionally, if you happen to move to a larger space you can use it as a side table instead.
A mosaic table is one of those unique pieces that has a mosaic display while adding color and pattern. Regardless of how tiny the table might be it packs a huge punch due to how color is woven into the beautiful piece.
Just because you’re looking for a smaller table does not mean you can’t go for a farmhouse aesthetics. Choose a larger farmhouse table with a storage piece as part of the bottom to add a layer of comfort and additional storage space that can be used for multiple different reasons.
Pink is one of those hues that traditionally feels a bit “too” feminine or even “child-like;” however, when done properly, it can be the ultimate chic element in the room. The idea is to have a pastel pink table with a metallic base and have it be one or the only pink tone in the room. This will give it the unique touch you seek without the added frills.
Simple and Round
When in doubt, opt for a simple and round table. The simplicity of a round table goes a long way because it brings a uniform look to the room while still being size friendly.

Add in a patterned ottoman for a Boho-chic feel or a bright colored one to bring a modern vibe to the room. Pop a tray on top for when you want to serve guests or finding want a space to lay a few decorative pieces.
When we talk about modern most of us think of glass or other see-through pieces and while this is not wrong, glass is taking a step back and leaving room for acrylic tables. Acrylic is as charming as glass, but with an upgraded look that’s a bit more modern with a twist of casual as well. The perfect blend for a smaller room that needs that stable appeal.
Keep it Slim
Everyone knows a slim coffee table is an excellent form of elongating the room, regardless of how small it is. Keep the table slim and sleek for that well put together look without having to add additional décor.
Having a small table does not mean you cannot make a statement, it simply means you have to get a bit more creative when doing so. A great way to get creative is to have a metallic coffee table. The metallic will brighten the room while bringing an added touch of texture to the room.
A wood table is always a good idea; however, when it comes to a smaller space you want to go as simple as possible. The act of having a simple wood table will have a textured effect to the room while not making a big, bold statement. Consider using a lighter hue of wood for a beautiful simplistic feature.
When you can’t figure out what to add as your coffee table consider going for a colorful table. The color of the table will add an additional layer of character to the room while being put together and cohesive. Additionally, it’s a great way of bringing the table upfront as a focal point.
