Kid Friendly Coffee Tables

What is the best kid-friendly material for a coffee table?

For a family with small kids, durability and safety are key when it comes to choosing furniture and its materials.

  • Solid wood is very durable, sturdy, and timeless…but want out for sharp corners. It can also get stained easily if not sealed properly.
  • Soft, padded upholstered coffee tables are great because they have soft edges. But fabric-topped coffee tables and ottomans need to be constructed with high-performance fabrics to withstand wear and tear and be stain-resistant. Soft edges won’t guarantee that your child won’t get hurt, but they will definitely minimize the potential chances of injury.
  • Plastic or acrylic is a good choice because it is easy to clean and there are no splinters. Often they will have rounded edges on acrylic coffee tables.
  • Kid-proof finish is key! To be honest, any material of coffee table can work if it has a protective finish that can be easily cleaned.

What is the best-shaped coffee table to have with small children?

  • Round or oval coffee table shapes are ideal when you have young kids. The continuous edge eliminates sharp corners that could cause injuries.
  • Kidney-shaped coffee tables also work well and they are a bit more unique and they don’t have corners.
  • Rectangle shaped tables with rounded corners give you the best of the both worlds.
