A centre table in the living room

Image courtesy of photostock at FreeDigitalPhotos.netA centre table in the centre of the main seating area in the living room is a common feature. However, some, especially those living in small apartments resist it; usually because they feel it makes the space look and feel constrained and smaller. While that is understandable, even in those cases, one could still consider a small table, maybe made of glass, for it has several advantages.

1. Conversation starter: A centre table binds people sitting around it over a tea or beer. You could place your drinks and snacks on the table and go on chatting for hours, getting up only for refills.

2. Mini library: A centre table can house magazines and newspapers at the bottom level. This encourages the reading habit.Image courtesy of photostock1 at

3. Decorate: The table can be used for some decor. You could put up an unbreakable centrepiece like a figurine that you picked up in your last trip.

Of course, the centre table is the most comfortable place to put up your legs when you are tired.
