The Ultimate Coffee Table Buying Guide
So you finally got that new couch, or sectional, you’ve been wanting for the past few years. Now, it’s time to pick out a new coffee table that fits your space to make your living room complete. Here at Cleo’s Furniture, we have a vast inventory of coffee tables that are guaranteed to make you comfortable in your home. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when looking for the perfect coffee table.
Height & Length
The first thing you want to consider when picking the ultimate coffee table is its height and length. You want your coffee table to be no more than a few inches above or below the height of your sofa. Anything taller or shorter than this won’t be functional and, honestly, won’t look good. Length is the next thing you want to keep in mind. Consider the space around the table you will need to walk and move around. A good rule of thumb is to leave around 17-20 inches between your coffee table and sofa to give plenty of room to easily walk around.
Style & Shape
Round or oval coffee tables are the most popular as they are extremely versatile. Whether you have a standard sofa, a sectional, or sofa with a chaise- a round coffee table is sure to make the most out of your space. Just remember to keep the circumference of the table large enough to balance the length of your couch, so it looks proportionate. You don’t want to get your favorite coffee table home only to find that it looks funny.
If you have a sofa or sectional with hard lines- a square or rectangular coffee table might be the right choice for you. Rectangular coffee tables are sure to maximize the most out of your space and give you plenty of room. Square coffee tables can work well with both small and large spaces. If you’re feeling really adventurous- you could even double up and have two square coffee tables side by side to get even more surface area. Two square tables give you the feel of a rectangular table while being more intriguing and intentional.
If you are looking for a statement or conversation piece- look at abstract coffee tables. Abstract designs are a great way to bring a space to life and are almost like a piece of artwork for your living room. Don’t be afraid to play with textures- abstract coffee tables can come in many different shapes, sizes, and forms. If you’re looking to bring more life to your space- you might look at a coffee table made from organic materials like driftwood. Or, if you want something a little more contemporary- a coffee table that is made out of metal or stone could work for you.
