People always thinking that “bigger size is better”, however, it is not that. If you live in a very small apartment and have a tight space, you need a small coffee table to choose. Before selecting a coffee table, you need to measure your existing living furniture first. These measurements will help you to choose a coffee table size which is perfectly fit your space. Follow the tips below to choose the perfect coffee table size, including the length, width, height, depth and placement.
Length A coffee table that is about 2/3 the length of your sofa is a great starting point!Coffee table length that are proportional to your sofa length, will make your living room look more balanced.
Generally the coffee table height is from 35cm to 45cm. We suggest to choose the height that is the same as your sofa cushions or a little lower around 2-5cm. It allows you to grab any drinks or food on the table top easily.
Width and Placement
Before determine the coffee table width, you need to decide where to place it. We suggest you to leave around 30 to 45cm of space between the coffee table and sofa. We also suggest to leave about 75cm of space between the coffee table and TV stand, to ensure the comfortable foot traffic around the rest of your living room. Measure from your sofa to your TV stand, then minus 105cm - 120cm, that is your ideal coffee table width.
