How to choose a foldable Table

Here are some tips to help you choose the right piece for your home.

Type: There are different types of tables. Depending on your needs, you can opt for an ottoman, a side-table, or the traditional option. Also, consider the material used; wood or wicker.

Height: Your piece should be easy to use.  First, measure the height of your sofa then go for a table two or three inches above your chair.

Size: How big is the room? Ensure you pick a size suitable plus enough leg room for everyone sitting around it. For small rooms we recommend an oval and round folding coffee table while for larger rooms we recommend rectangular options.

Color: If you love a bold look, a black or rich brown piece is the right choice and for a classy chic look go for white pieces.

Budget: Thankfully the ideas above will not break your bank. They are affordable and durable.
