The way you feel when you walk into your living room can heavily depend on the furniture that you choose. When you pick a coffee table for your sectional that is too big, you might feel like you're constantly tripping over it. Even worse, the table is always in the way.
If the coffee table is too small, you won't have enough room to play games with your friends or for the decorative items that you want to display. Then your family room may feel impractical.
When you buy your new sofa and coffee table from SofaDreams, you can pick up some tips on how to pair sectional sofas and coffee tables. You can also find some new furniture for your home.
Size is important when choosing a coffee table to go with your sectional. If you pick one that is too large and have a sectional with recliners, you won't have enough room to kick up your feet. By the same token, a small coffee table will limit what you can do with the available space.
We recommend that you measure the size of the room and pick furniture that will fit the space. You want a coffee table that stretches across the length or center portion of the sectional such as our New York coffee table. It has a large base with a clear glass top.
Maintain The Flow Of Traffic
This tip is especially important for those with an L-shaped sectional. These sectionals have one arm or side that extends out further than the rest of the sofa to form a lounge. The coffee table should be long enough that it stretches across the center of the couch but not so long that it blocks the lounger.
If you pick a longer coffee table, you'll need to use it at an angle to the couch. This arrangement can make sitting down awkward or uncomfortable. Our San Diego rectangular coffee table with its glass plate top is a good option.
Consider the Height
The height of the coffee table is something you might not consider but something you should think about. You generally want a table that is within one to two inches of the total height of the couch. When the table is too short, you need to constantly lean over to grab anything off the top.
If you choose a table that is too tall, you and your family will keep knocking into that table. We recommend the Houston coffee table, which has slanted sides to reduce some of those bumps.
Make The Match With Different Style Coffee Tables
The Detroit and Jacksonville coffee tables are some of the popular choices for those who want something different because they feature unique angles. The Detroit table has a rectangular surface but has a structure that will resemble your large ottomans. Meanwhile, the Jacksonville side table has a wavy pattern that will remind you of the Florida beaches.
Our Los Angeles coffee table is popular today because it has both a clear glass plate on the top and a display area below. The shape is also atypical and will enhance a room’s aesthetics.
You might like the Dallas coffee table with built-in lights too. The octagonal shape makes it very communal and allows for extra seating.
