2. Find the perfect coffee table

Usually, a couch will be the focal point of the space, but achieving a comfortable and perfect aesthetic requires the right coffee table.

The coffee table will also appear more prominent with additional furniture such as books, flowers, lamps, candles, etc. Create a focal point, but don't leave things cluttered. For small spaces, try replacing the coffee table with an ottoman for the same purpose, but it will look more luxurious and elegant.

Your favorite photos and artwork not only enhance the home but also help to add personality to the space.
