The Easiest Living Room Update This Season

Change your space in under 5 minutes

Our living rooms have been working overtime this year. Often the central room in our home, this versatile space has lately become the setting for home offices, school sessions, playtime and game nights. This season, you may find yourself needing extra surfaces for your laptop or Lego. Now is a great time to invest in a coffee table or side table that works as hard as you do, so here are our top picks to help you make the most of the space you’re in.

Wall Mounted

If you have a smaller footprint or just need an extra perch for your morning coffee, consider a wall mounted table. The swing arm allows you to tuck it out of the way when it’s not needed, making it a great alternative when floor space is at a premium.

The living room has become the centre of the home these days. Should you find yourself competing with others for some space, nesting tables could solve your problems. Spread the two tables out to give you more surface when you need it, and tuck them back together at the end of the day.

Built-In storage

It doesn’t take much for cords, remote controls, and notebooks to start cluttering up the coffee table. To corral the clutter, look for a table with integrated storage where you can stash essentials close at hand but out of site.
