For many of us, a coffee table is a trusty companion that holds snacks, remote controls, or knick-knacks. But decorating it is a simple way to update your living room and elevate your home.

Here are 4 easy ways to take your coffee table decor to the next level:

1. Improve your organizational skills with a tray.

A tray is a simple addition that will keep you organized while looking like a stylish decorative choice. You can use a tray as a catchall to hold your remotes and miscellaneous items, or you can show off your favorite decor pieces.

Make it sustainable: You might already have an unused tray in your home that you can repurpose for your coffee table, or you can thrift one.

2. Keep guests entertained with fun games.

No matter what kind of event you’re hosting, an icebreaker is the perfect way to lighten the mood and get comfortable with everyone. And what better way to break the ice than with a fun game? Bring out your favorite board games or puzzles, and watch everyone flock to your coffee table to see all the action.

Make it sustainable: Whether your games are gifts, vintage, or thrifted items, you can prevent them from collecting dust in your closet by displaying them on your coffee table.

3. Bring nature into your living room.

Flowers, branches, or other foliage are classic choices that will instantly liven up your living room. Shop from a local florist to support small businesses, or pick out some branches from your own backyard for a minimal look!

Make it sustainable: When your flowers or foliage have reached the end of their life cycle, you can return them to nature by putting them outside or in a compost bin.

4. Create a one-of-a-kind display by showcasing sentimental items.

For an interior look that can’t be copied, take your favorite personal items and use them to decorate your coffee table. This way, your coffee table will tell your unique story and it’ll help make your space feel more like home.

Make it sustainable: No extra purchases necessary – from a photo album to vacation souvenirs, pick your favorite memories and display them.
