Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV) - The options for coffee tables are endless. I’ve got tips to help you find the perfect coffee table for your room.
1. Consider the space- the ideal distance from the edge of the sofa to the edge of the coffee table is 18inches- close enough to reach for your drink or put down a magazine, but far enough to stretch your legs out. People often leave to much room or not enough.
2. Strike a balance between your sofa and coffee table styles. If you have a plush, solid color couch, try a glass table on a leggy chrome frame. If your couch is slim and streamlined, you’re fine with a chunkier table, maybe one with a thick wood top and solid base.
3. If you have kids, an oval or round table is a smart choice, since the sharp corner and little ones aren’t a good match. If you need extra storage, try a storage ottoman in place of a coffee table.
