Practical Picks

Lift top coffee table with storage

This modern lift top coffee table with hidden storage is a great option for those who don’t intend to keep a lot on top of their table. It’s a great idea for those who want to store regularly used items away that can be reached with ease. With its added desk function, it is also ideal for those who want to work from home in comfort on the couch.

Coffee table with drawers with storage

Coffee tables that are styled like a chest of drawers are great for keeping possessions safe but hidden away at the same time. Multiple drawers gives you the option to keep everything neat and organised.

We love this sleek dual wood coffee table from Wayfair as not only does it offer a practical yet stylish look but priced at £129.99, it is great value for money. The versatile nature of the design means it has a modern edge but would also suit a more classic setting meaning that at such an affordable price point, if you ever decided to switch styles this table is likely to be able to adapt along with it. Featuring a contrasting white and natural wood finish, this contemporary table also has the benefit of offering multiple hidden storage options.

Low Lift Top Coffee Table with storage

If you are looking for a low-level coffee table, then you may want to think about choosing one with a lift top function so that you can utilise it at both heights. Low level coffee tables work well for those with a minimalist theme or that simply want to keep a room light and airy without overwhelming the setting with furniture however they aren’t always the most practical for height. Adding a lift top option allows you to get style and practicality from your table but you will want to consider the height of your sofa before choosing a style like this

Multi-Purpose Coffee Table with storage

Not everyone has the luxury of space in their homes and if you are lacking room for all your furniture, why not think about a multi-purpose coffee table? With its various functions, tables such as this can double up not only as storage but as a place to eat, work and keep a cup of coffee on!

Ottoman Coffee Table with storage

Another great alternative for those looking to save some space, not only does this ottoman storage table come with great hidden storage space but it can also double up as additional seating for when you have friends and family over.

Extendable Coffee Table with storage

For those that want a small, discreet coffee table but sometimes require more surface space then an extendable coffee table may well be the one for you. This option comes with hidden storage within the table that is great for when you want to keep bits and pieces tucked away.

Floor Shelf Coffee Table For Storage

If it’s storage you are after, then allow us to introduce the floor shelf coffee table. Designed with storage and display shelving in mind, there is plenty of space to keep decorative items as well as placing some cute storage baskets to keep any clutter out of sight!

Wire Basket Coffee Table

Ideal for those with an array of blankets and throws that you want neatly tucked away, a wire basket coffee table is both functional and visually interesting with plenty of space on top to hold a cup of tea!

Tray Top Coffee Table

Bring convenience to your living space in a stylish way with a tray top coffee table. This option not only has a handy detachable tray but also features hidden storage underneath and rotating function making it both multi-purpose but aesthetically impactful.

Swivel Coffee Table

For those wanting a unique space saving design, consider opting for a swivel coffee table which provides extra table space when required with the advantage of being able to reduce the size back down. This sleek glossy black table comes with hidden drawer compartments meaning you get a lot of table and storage for your buck!

Make it modern

Scandinavian coffee table

Scandi style furniture is a trend that has stood the test of time so investing in a Scandinavian style coffee table, with storage benefits as well, would be a great interior design move. The combination of white and natural wood seen on this table makes it highly versatile with a fresh, modern feel.

Box Frame Coffee Table

A box frame coffee table works well in a living space that has plenty of soft lines as the angular look of this table helps to break them up and add some dimension to the space. Opt for one with a storage shelf for any coffee table books you might have or if you have more to store, find an option with drawer inserts which will keep things more hidden!

Those looking for a touch of luxury should look no further than this space saving, nest of coffee tables from Homary, £999.99. With hidden storage space to keep things clutter free and maintain the luxe vibe of your living room, this offering provides ultimate flexibility whilst maintaining precious floor space. 


The beautiful marble top along with elegant, textured sides and subtle touches of gold cater for those wanting to inject a modern opulence into their living space.

High Gloss Coffee Table

High gloss finishes are ultra-modern and often let the shine do the talking, keeping the rest of the design sleek- making it great for those who are fans of minimalist décor. This option provides you with a simplistic coffee table along with hidden storage options to keep the minimalistic space of your dreams.

Industrial Coffee Table

For those with more urban looking homes (think exposed brickwork and metal features), an industrial coffee table might be what you are looking for to level up your interior game. It can be hard to find an industrial style table with plenty of storage but look for one with a discreet shelf to keep your remotes tucked away or one that you can place storage baskets on.

Trunk Coffee Table

Trunk style coffee tables add a certain rustic charm to living areas with their vintage charm, plus they have the added benefit of coming with a large amount of storage. Whilst their storage functionality is high, the practicality is reduced somewhat by the fact you need to lift the top up to get into it so, perhaps, not ideal if you need to keep things on top of the table or if you need regular access to what is inside.

Mid Century Modern Coffee Table

Mid century style furniture has a classic yet retro feel to it which means it goes with a variety of styles of living space. Typically made from wood, they offer a great deal of durability so are a great choice if you want something stylish but hard wearing.

Stone Coffee Table

Stone coffee tables offer a highly contemporary feel to a room, similar to that of glass or marble, but with a more hard-wearing finish and, generally, at a less expensive price point. It can be challenging to find stone coffee tables that offer storage options, but this square table comes with a stone top and hidden drawer compartments making it a win-win!

Modern Round Coffee Table

Round coffee tables are a great way to bring softer shapes to a room and this option has a variety of functions from a lift top storage and desk option as well as another large hidden storage section at the base.

Acrylic Coffee Table

Acrylic coffee tables are a great hard-wearing choice that normally come in more abstract, modern designs. Transparent acrylic designs are popular right now but not so practical to hide a multitude of clutter sins so opt for a block colour instead. This option comes with a hollow middle which is great for storing books but also could hold boxes for additional storage.

Marble Coffee Table with storage

Marble coffee tables offer a real sense of elegance however they also come with an expensive price tag. Opt for a table with a marble top to bring the price tag down. This option will look chic in any living space with its dark wood bottom that has plenty of storage space with drawers and alcoves.

Concrete Coffee Table with storage

Similar to stone and marble, concrete offers a sleek, modern touch to living spaces. It’s a durable material but finding concrete coffee tables with a storage offering isn’t easy. Consider opting for one that has a concrete effect, like this, instead.

Metal Coffee Table with storage

A metal coffee table is a real statement piece that will be a true focal point in a living room. This hammered metal table with its unusual texture is stylish with ample storage under its lid.

Glass Topped Coffee Table with storage

Glass coffee tables are a chic and contemporary style but not so practical for those that need additional storage space from their coffee tables as well. A glass topped coffee table offers the best of both worlds as you are then able to conceal stored items but still have the elegance of the glass from the top. Complete glass coffee tables aren’t the most practical as they are prone to breakages, so this also offers a safer way to incorporate glass as well as giving you an easy, wipe-clean surface for drinks!

For a retro look…

Soften any harsh lines in your room with a rounded rectangular coffee table like this one from Made.com. Although the rounded edges of this table give real retro vibes, the white and natural wood combo brings it right into the 21st century.  Complete with drawers to keep stored items hidden, it is the perfect light and airy table to add to any living space!

Modern LED Coffee Table with storage

Enhance the features of a high gloss coffee table with modern LED lighting in the storage. This option comes with some great shelves for storing coffee table books as well as drawers for further storage. And one thing is for sure, you won’t ever lose the remote with those lights!

Low Level Coffee Table with storage

Low level coffee tables look fresh and modern in a sitting room and this table is no exception. With dual tones of white and natural wood that is so on trend right now, there is an abundance of storage space. Be sure the height works well with the level of your couch though!

Leather Coffee Table with storage

Using a leather coffee table offers a more formal style to living space. With its upholstered finish and removable lid, this table can be multifunctional with uses including seating, storage and a footstool. If you are looking to use the table to place drinks on, consider placing a tray on top to keep things steady.

Keep it classic

Our Designers Pick

Our designers love this dark, walnut wood style coffee table from Homary. Darker woods such as walnut are bang on trend for 2022 and with wood being such a durable, classic material you really can’t go far wrong when opting for this style. The discreet drawer in this dark brown coffee table with hidden storage gives it functionality as well as timeless and elegant style.

For those that have a home with period features or simply prefer furniture with more character, opt for a traditional coffee table. This option comes with hidden storage drawers and the added benefit of a shelf which would be perfect to place storage boxes on for smaller items.

Simple Coffee Table with storage

Sometimes when it comes to coffee tables, less is more especially if you have other statement pieces of furniture that do the talking for the entire living room. A soft, natural wood table is a great choice for those wanting something simplistic. This option brings simplicity with the bonus of a drawer for storing clutter away.

Distressed Wood Coffee Table with storage

Furniture from reclaimed or distressed looking wood is a key interior trend right now. Stripped back wood offers a minimal effort style to living space. This affordable piece offers the benefit of lift top storage which is great if you are short on space as not only is there a storage compartment but also a place for you to eat and work from.

Round coffee table with storage

Round coffee tables are a classic shape that will never go out of style however they aren’t as practical to place in a room due to the lack of corners. With no sharp edges they are a good choice for those with kids. If you have a smaller sofa then a round coffee table would be the best choice, as larger sofas tend to make circular coffee tables appear small. 


This choice comes in a classic wood finish with a lacquered top to protect it from damage. The metal legs offer a contrast to the wood top whilst providing a sturdy base. This DIY coffee table with hidden storage is self-assembly but the result will be worth it!

Coffee Table with Storage Baskets

If it is storage you crave, then look no further than this design with built in storage baskets that blend perfectly with the rest of the table. Maximising its full storage potential with baskets and a hidden drawer, you can be sure to have enough room to hide all your knick knacks in this table!

Angular Coffee Table with storage

If your living room is full of soft lines, offset them with an angular coffee table. This selection has all the angles with the added benefit of storage and display areas for decorative items.

Wood Coffee Table with storage

You can’t go far wrong with wooden furniture, both durable and timeless, it is worth the investment. This multi tonal choice offers some exciting texture that lifts the dimensions of the table. It also benefits from discreet, well-hidden drawers.

Unique styles

Rattan coffee table with storage

Rattan is an on-trend material to feature in your home right now. Traditionally it is more common to find this type of material in the garden, however rattan adds a contemporary feel to the interior of a home too. With rattan, you will gain a modern style coffee table and opting for one with hidden storage will further enhance your living space. 


This option has a generous sized rattan basket to keep items tucked away, or even as a place to store throws and blankets!

Retro Coffee Table with storage

Retro furniture helps to bring a more unique style to a living space, injecting character into previously lifeless spots. This slatted style, in natural wood, gives a retro feel complete with a sliding door, disguising additional storage space- a fresh way to keep your stuff hidden!

Abstract Coffee Table with storage

Abstract coffee tables, with their irregular curved shapes, help to break up harsh lines in a room from more angular furniture. Cloud shaped tops are popular right now and help to add character to a room.

Smart Coffee Table with storage

Although it is certainly a more premium option, be the envy of all your guests with a smart coffee table. You’ll have no doubt heard of smart TVs and now this futuristic technology features in the humble coffee table too. Many smart coffee tables come with phone charging ports, Bluetooth connection and even refrigerated drawers meaning you can keep snacks and drinks tucked away.

Magazine Rack Coffee Table with storage

For those who like to put their feet up and relax on the sofa with a good magazine, look to invest in a coffee table with a discreet storage rack underneath to keep all your literature tucked away.

Upholstered Print Coffee Table with storage

For a real statement piece, consider choosing a coffee table with a bold print design. This upholstered design with an Aztec style printed fabric not only boasts plenty of storage but is sure to be a real talking point when you have guests over.

Hinged Top Coffee Table with storage

A hinged top coffee table is perfect for when you need to rummage around for items you’ve stored without needing to hold the lid up. Most hinged top coffee tables offer a large volume of storage as they come in trunk style designs making it a great option to store things such as kids toys.

Coloured Coffee Table with storage

Coloured coffee tables inject some character into living space and help to tie in the rest of the room such as curtains and sofas. This muted sage green option is great for a range of rooms from Scandi to vintage. The green shade is ideal for introducing a touch of colour without feeling dated.

Square Coffee Table with storage

Square coffee tables work well for those that only have a small space to fill. With its angular appearance, a square table tends to fit more neatly into spaces than a round one.

Clamshell Coffee Table with storage

This round coffee table, with its unusual woven exterior, has a half, clamshell style, opening at the top providing ample storage for those with excess clutter. Although it is a far pricier option, it is a real statement piece so if you are looking for unique furniture with added functionality, this may well be worth the investment!

Wheeled Coffee Table with storage

Choosing a coffee table on wheels gives the ultimate flexibility so if you like the idea of being able to quickly switch up the position of your coffee table, or you’d simply like the option of pushing it out of the way then look no further!

Final thoughts

There really is a coffee table out there to suit all styles and spaces. Keep your living space feeling tidy and relaxed by utilising a table style that comes with hidden storage. Consider the height of your sofa and other furniture styles in the room to maintain a harmonious feeling in the overall area.
