What Size Tablecloth Should I Get for My Coffee Table?
Adding a tablecloth to your coffee table is an easy way to switch up the look of your living room. But it’s important to select the right size tablecloth to get the best look. Here’s a guide on how to pick the best tablecloth size for your coffee table.
Measure Your Coffee Table
Before you can select a size, you’ll need to know how big your coffee table is. Measure its width and length, and jot down the numbers. This will help you pick the right size without having to guess.
Choose a Tablecloth
Tablecloths come in a variety of sizes, so you’ll need to pick a size that works for your coffee table.
- If your coffee table is mostly square, choose a square tablecloth.
- If your coffee table is oblong, choose an oblong tablecloth.
- If your coffee table is round, choose a round tablecloth.
Pick the Right Size
Once you’ve decided on the shape, it’s time to decide on the size. The rule of thumb is to add 6-10 inches to the coffee table’s measurements. This will give you enough material to hang over the edges of the table like a skirt.
For instance, if your coffee table measures 48 inches long and 32 inches wide, pick a 54 x 38 inch tablecloth. This way, the tablecloth will hang 6 inches off the end of the table and will look balanced.
Remember that bigger isn’t always better. If your tablecloth is too big, it will hang down past the edges of the table in a way that looks sloppy. Choose the right size tablecloth for the best look.
In most cases, the 6-10 inch rule should do the trick. Keep it in mind, measure your coffee table and choose the right tablecloth size for the best look. Good luck!
