Frequently Asked Questions about Tables
Do tables come in different shapes?
While rectangular and round are the most popular, there are also asymmetrically shaped ones, long and narrow tables, and oval shapes you can choose from. To maximize usability in long, narrow rooms, go for a rectangular or oval table. Triangular and square-shaped tables are suitable for smaller living rooms, while narrow tables suit well in smaller spaces.
What should I consider when choosing tables?
Before you go out and buy a new table for your living room, ensure you consider the size and shape of your room, followed by the table’s size, design, shape, material, the chairs you plan to use with it, its utility, and its adaptability to different settings.
How high should a living room table be?
For a coffee table or sofa table, your sofa seat should be at least 1 to 2 inches above the table surface. Tables between 16 and 18 inches in height look great with regular sofas. However, a table height of 20-21 inches is recommended to accommodate a higher sofa.
