How to Size a Coffee Table

The size of a coffee table affects the space in a living room, and should typically only be as large as necessary. To ensure the proper size, you can follow a few simple steps.

Measuring the Space

  • Measure the whole open space of your living room from wall to wall (including any built-in furniture) and write the dimensions down.
  • Note all the furniture you have in your living room, such as a sofa, chairs, and tv, to use with your measurements.

Your Ideal Coffee Table Size

Once you have all your measurements, it’s time to estimate your ideal coffee table size.

  • Subtract the width of your furniture from the width of the room. This will give you a rough estimate of the maximum length of your coffee table.
  • Use the available floor space, and subtract the area that the sofa and chairs will take up, so you know what’s left and what size your table should occupy.
  • Lastly, you should decide how much overhang you would like your coffee table to have over your sofa and chairs in order to provide adequate space.

With the proper measurements and estimates, you can easily find the perfect size for your coffee table! Keep in mind that the style, colour, and design should reflect the room’s existing décor.
