Choosing the Right Coffee Table

Sitting on the couch and enjoying a great book is some people’s idea of a Saturday afternoon well-spent. To create the right atmosphere that is perfectly comfortable, it is important to choose the right coffee table to suit your living room and the way you plan to use your coffee table. For example, you might like to use the coffee table for yourself. You might enjoy sitting with family and sipping a cup of coffee. You might wish to host a small party and have your guests gather around the coffee table. So, the coffee table you select really depends on the room setup and how you plan to use it.

Here are some general rules to live by: Coffee tables should not be longer than two-thirds the length of your couch. You, of course, want appropriate leg room between the couch and coffee table. So, make sure to allow for one and a half feet between the coffee table and your couch or other seating. If you are working with a smaller space, then we recommend oval or rectangular coffee tables. These styles are also great for situations where you might have two identical couches facing each other. If you have a sectional couch or plan to host many people around your coffee table, you should opt for a square or round style.

You also need to decide what style you want your coffee table to be. Do you want the entire coffee table to be one, solid wood? Would you prefer the body of the table to be one type of wood while the drawers are another? Maybe you’d like the legs to be a different color or another material entirely. Maysville Furniture Showcase has coffee tables with decorated, wooden, and metal legs.
