GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) — When choosing a coffee table, consider the space. 18 inches is the ideal space from the edge of the sofa to the edge of the table. Enough space to stretch out your legs, but close enough to set down a drink. Strike a balance between your sofa and coffee table styles.
If you have a plush, solid-color sofa, try a glass table on a leggy chrome frame. If your sofa is slim and more streamlines, you’re fine with a chunkier table. If you have kids, an oval or round table is a smart choice, since sharp corners and little ones aren’t a good match. And if you need extra storage, a table with a shelf underneath is a great idea or a storage ottoman!
