Tall, grande, or venti—coffee tables come in a range of sizes, but we're giving the scoop on how to find the proper size for your space.
[MUSIC]. A common mistake, when selecting a coffee table for your living room, is choosing one that's too small for the space. You really want to keep it proportionate with the size of the sofa. A good rule of thumb, is to make sure that the coffee table is about two-thirds the length of the sofa. [MUSIC] Height is also key, you don't want it to be higher than the seat of the sofa as well. And distance and placement is key. 18 inches is the ideal distance from the edge of your sofa for placing a coffee table. It's best for propping up your feet and also placing a drink. [MUSIC]
