Trunk Coffee Tables

Coffee tables are the centerpieces of a living room. People gather around the coffee table to share stories and enjoy their meals together. A coffee table can also allow you to work in the living room, as it can be converted to a workstation with ease. This is why having a coffee table will greatly elevate your living room, even if you don’t have a lot of space. Trunk coffee tables offer the functionalities of traditional coffee tables and a lot more storage space. This is one of the reasons why trunk coffee tables are getting so popular in recent home design, especially for small houses.

Why Choose Trunk Coffee Tables?

Trunk coffee tables are the tables that have drawers or extra storage space inside them. These extra storage slots will allow you to store more items in the living room, with some notable examples including magazines, books, toys, etc. As a result, you will not have to move to another room to get the essential items you need that often, saving you a lot of time. The extra storage space will also help you to organize the living room more effectively, preventing clutter with ease. 

The Different Types of Trunk Coffee Tables

Trunk coffee tables come in two different main types, and both of these types are useful in their own ways. The two types are lift-top trunk coffee tables and trunk coffee tables with drawers. 

For lift-top trunk coffee tables, the top of the coffee table can be lifted up completely, revealing a storage space underneath the tabletop. The storage area within lift-top coffee tables might be limited compared to trunk coffee tables with drawers. Still, the lack of drawers will give these tables a boost in terms of appearance. One major drawback: You cannot access the storage space unless you have removed all the current items on the tabletop. 

Trunk coffee tables with drawers are the second popular trunk coffee tables. These are coffee tables with extra drawers, allowing you to store various items inside these drawers. The good news is that there tend to be multiple drawers, so you can easily sort your items by categories and by materials with ease. In addition, having multiple drawers allows you to store items that otherwise would not be able to be stored close to one another as well. However, there is still one major downside: Each drawer can have very little storage space, so you will find it pretty hard to fit in large items. 

Mind the Materials

Just like the design, the materials will also have a huge impact on the overall aesthetics and performance of the trunk coffee tables. As a result, you should pay a lot of attention to the kind of material you will use. 

  • Wooden materials: Wooden trunk coffee tables are the most common type of trunk coffee tables. These tables boast a rustic and vintage vibe that will add plenty of warmth to the room, elevating your living room as a whole. However, wooden trunk coffee tables require regular maintenance so that the quality of the woodwork can remain pristine throughout the years.

  • Metal: Metal trunk coffee tables exist, but they are not as popular as their wooden counterparts. Thanks to their construction, metal trunk coffee tables are sturdy and durable. Still, they can also be quite heavy, so they are not as flexible as wooden tables. When it comes to aesthetics, metal tables exude a cold and edgy vibe that makes them more suitable for living rooms with an industrial decoration style. 

Mind the Size

Trunk coffee tables are typically quite large, so they will take up a lot of space in your living room. If you wish to place your trunk coffee tables in the living room without taking up so much space, it would be a good idea to measure the available space in your living room first. As a result, you will be able to estimate how much space the coffee table would take, allowing you to find the models with the appropriate size.
