On a typical day you probably don’t think about your coffee table any more than you think about the last Stop Sign you rolled through. If your coffee table wasn’t there however, you would certainly notice. Your living room would probably look quite strange.
A coffee table is an essential part of the living room decor and it can really elevate the design of the room. The design options are endless so knowing where to begin can be difficult when choosing the right coffee table for your living room.
Choosing the right size is the most important and ideally a coffee table should be about two-thirds of the length of your sofa.
What coffee table shape should you choose?
If you have a small room, the best choices are rectangle or oval. You may also want to consider a nesting table so that you can easily have more space when you need it.
Square and round coffee tables are great for large seating like a sectional. A coffee table should be about the same height as the seats on your sofa. When you place the table, is should be 12 to 18 inches away for the table so consider how much space you have available. And since it’s going to live with you, make sure like it.
