You rarely see a living room without a coffee table that anchors the space. In fact, coffee tables are one of those pieces that are normally non negotiable. They not only bring stability to your space, but they offer much needed counter space to display books, candles and other decor items. They are also practically needed when you want to place a glass of water or bowl of popcorn somewhere. I personally would be placing a bowl of ice cream or a plate of chocolate chip cookies on my coffee table…wouldn’t you?!
Coffee tables come in all shapes and sizes. When choosing the perfect table for your space, there are a few things to remember.
Consider your space. The ideal distance from the edge of the sofa to the edge of the table is 18 inches, which is close enough to reach for your drink or put a magazine down, but far enough to stretch out your legs.
Think about your room’s main passageway, and leave at least 30 inches from the outer edge of the coffee table to the TV stand or media cabinet.
A coffee table’s height is very important. The surface should be about one or two inches lower than your sofa seat. Standard tables are 16 to 18 inches high, and a taller table is 20 or 21 inches for those taller sofas.
