How To Decorate A Glass Coffee Table
A glass coffee table can bring an elegant and stylish touch to any living room. Decorating it can be a bit of a challenge due to its transparency, but it can be a beautiful statement piece with some creative effort.
Choose a Focus
Start by choosing a theme or focus. Taking some time to think about the style of decor you want to create will help narrow down the options. For example, classic, boho, modern, Scandinavian etc. Once you’ve settled on a style, you’ll want to make sure your items complement each other.
Bring in Nature
Nature always adds a touch of freshness and serenity, so feel free to bring it in for your coffee table. Get a stylish planter or a vase with some beautiful flowers or plants. Adding some twigs and branches can also be a nice way to breathe some life into the room.
Keep It Simple
Decorating with glass can be tricky because it doesn’t block distractions, so you don’t want to overdo it with too many items. It’s better to have a few bold items that really stand out, such as a sculpture, artwork, large books or candles, than to have a bunch of small items that get lost in the mix.
Adding layers to your coffee table will add some dimension. Place a tray over the table filled with different elements:
- Books: Stack some interesting books to create an interesting conversation piece.
- Ceramics: Place a few decorative glass or ceramic pieces to make the table look more inviting.
- Goodies: Add something unique to the table like a bowl filled with small items or vintage finds.
The options are endless, and it’s up to you to experiment with different items and create a beautiful table scape.
Light It Up
Finally, don’t forget to add some lighting for extra allure. You can use some candles, fairy lights or even a string of lights draped over the table. Not only will it add to the atmosphere it will also bring out the beauty of the glass.
Creating the perfect glass coffee table can be tricky but with a little bit of thought and effort, it can look fabulous. Use these tips and play around with different items to find the best combination for your living room.
