Five Tips to Refresh Your Coffee Table for Summer

Posted by: Storganization Staff Tags: Organization tips, Living Room, Home Decor, Organize by Room

By the end of April, many of us are ready to close the door on winter and welcome warmer weather into our homes. An easy way to transition a room from season to season is by rearranging one of the most gathered around items in your house – the coffee table. We’ve collected some of our favorite summer coffee table décor ideas and tips to help brighten and refresh your room.


 1.) Bring in summer blooms

Adding fresh flowers to your coffee table invites the scent and visual of a spring and summer garden into your home. Stop by a local florist or cut from your garden for the best seasonal flowers.

Flowers can also neutralize or add color to your room depending on your current décor. Some of our favorite summer flowers are:

  • Peonies
  • Lilies
  • Dahlias
  • Sunflowers
  • Daises
  • Daffodils

2.) Add an inspiring book 

Update or introduce a new coffee table book that reflects a summer passion. It could be a book about a mountain you’ve been wanting to climb, a collection of gardens that inspire your green thumb, or photographs of beaches you’ve been meaning to visit. Whatever it may be, make sure it inspires you to step outside and enjoy the beautiful weather.

3.) Include naturals 

Place natural pieces, such as a woven basket, wooden tray or a succulent plant to give your table a fresh, organic look. These elevated items also act as layers and can section off your table top so that it looks organized and perfectly staged.

4.) Rainy day activities 

Summer vacation will be here before you know it, and keeping the kids occupied on a rainy day can be challenging. Always have rainy day activities such as board games, puzzles and books easily accessible on, in or around your coffee table.

ClosetMaid’s Storage Furniture Coffee Table does a great job balancing décor and storage so you can easily organize items without sacrificing style.

5.) Incorporate an accent piece 

Another way to freshen up your coffee table is to add an accent piece such as coral, a gold urchin or a personal heirloom. These pieces are sophisticated, yet unexpected and can make for a lovely display.
