How to choose a coffee table
The coffee table is the real star in the living room, along with the sofa. Because the life of your living room revolves around the area that these furniture make up. Taking care of its design, how practical it must be to adjust to your needs as well as the correct measurements will facilitate the dynamism of the room.
Starting from the basis that you have already chosen the living room furniture and its distribution, you should take into account some tips:
- Coffee table and sofa should be chosen together. Because both the table and the sofa need to coordinate. Especially if you have more than one sofa or chair to create the seating area.
- Give prominence to only one of them —If the sofa (or sofas) are very showy, choose a discreet coffee table and vice versa. With sofas with straight lines and neutral or black colors, you can opt for a table that attracts attention. The important thing is to avoid sharp contrasts.
- The shape of the table should be adjusted to the distribution of the rest area —This makes it easy to use from any seat. The most versatile is the rectangular one. Both the round and the square will force you to expand the rest area, very important if you do not have a large space.
Measurements and dimensions of the coffee tables
Although they may vary according to your taste and the dimensions of your living room, keep these measurements in mind.
- Pallet Coffee tables usually measure 120 x 80 centimeters and their standard height is 40-50 centimeters. As a general rule, you should never exceed the height of the sofa. If you exceed that you will prevent the continuity of the line of sight of the television, a window, the door and, in addition, it will cease to be comfortable.
- Between the coffee table and the sofas or seats you will need between 50 and 60 centimeters of distance so that the circulation is fluid.
- Choose the size of the table according to the distribution of the seating area. There are three common distributions: ‘U’ shaped, ‘L’ shaped or parallel. A rectangular coffee table is suitable for all. Depending on the measurements of the sofas and the dimensions of the living room, you may have to buy a larger coffee table. Another solution is to put two square, twins, that cover more space.
- If the space between the seating areas is very large, forgo round or square ones. For small sofas they are more practical but the greater their diameter, the more meters you will have to dedicate to the rest area.
