Then, slide the top open to reveal extra hidden space, including a separator so you can keep some bits on their own so you don’t have to hunt for them. This is quite deep which is good for anything which won’t squeeze into the shallower drawers.

It isn’t an expensive table so the amount of storage and quality is really great. Instructions are clear for building, although it is MDF so you’ll have to take your time.

  • Hidden storage
  • Inside blocks are really deep
  • Low price

Reasons to Avoid

  • MDF so not the greatest quality and strength

You can choose between an oak or walnut finish to match your other furniture, and you simply lift up the top-level to bring it closer to you. Ideal for dinner time, or if you’re working from home and need access to your laptop while on the sofa.

  • Just wipe clean with cloth
  • Great for a whole host of uses

8.
west elm Industrial Storage Box Frame Coffee Table

Specifications

  • Material: Mango Wood, Steel, Glass
  • Colour: Wood, Black
  • Dimensions: H44.5 x W96.5 x D61cm

The storage isn’t ‘hidden’ as such, but it isn’t necessarily the most obvious.

The polished steel frame has a glass top, acting just like an ordinary coffee table where you can set your cups and plates. Then, rather than there being a thin shelf near the bottom, there is an almost floating box about midway. It makes it seem as though it is just a very modern, industrial take on your ordinary shelving idea, but is actually two large drawers.

This gives the coffee table a very open, clean feeling, so is perfect for a minimalistic living space or those short on room and want everything to be a bit more open plan.

Reasons to Buy

  • Great quality
  • Modern, simplistic design

Reasons to Avoid

  • Poor instructions

9.

Specifications

  • Material: Wood
  • Colour: Black
  • Dimensions: 50 x 89.9 x 41.7 cm

Oval storage coffee tables can be hard to come by as it isn’t the most conventional setup, so this coffee table will please anyone who wants the rounded edges but with the pleasure of being able to keep their most needed items to hand.

There is the spacious top, a shelf underneath split into four smaller sections, a larger central shelf with a storage cube underneath, and then two shelves on the bottom either side. Perfect if you like to have some little mementoes on display, but need to hide away unsightly chargers and glasses cases.

  • Plenty of on-view storage
  • Oval shape for something different

Reasons to Avoid
