In some cases you can purchase such tables to match your existing furniture or if completely renewing your living room furniture they can be included in a collection. In the latter case your choice is simple but what if not? What if you are looking for a coffee table or end table that is not part of a set but you feel you need one or both to make your living room look complete? Here are some tips.
Dimensions of Occasional Tables. It is open to debate which is the more important: the look and feel of your occasional tables or their dimensions. Perhaps dimensions are irrelevant if you find a superb coffee table that matches your furniture perfectly. Maybe that superb-looking end table is ideal for your sofa or armchairs. Forget their sizes - they look great so let`s buy them! Is that so? First you must consider the purpose of these occasional tables for that is what they are generally known as - occasional tables - tables that will be used on occasion or at least that is one explanation for their name. What if the end table is way below the height of the arm of your armchair? Would you feel comfortable stretching down to get a cup or glass?.
Matching the Room Décor. Coffee tables and end tables should punctuate your general room decor and not strictly clash with it. However should you have reason to prefer them not to match then there is no strict rule about this. Nevertheless your room decoration will look more harmonious if your occasional tables match with your general living room furniture.
An end table is intended to make it easy for people sitting in an armchair to reach their drinks nibbles or books and newspapers without having to bend down over the side of their chair to do so. The same with a coffee table - it should be set at a comfortable height. Your first priority should therefore be the dimensions of your coffee and end tables. A coffee table should ideally be at just above knee height. Your end tables should be level with the arm of the chair or sofa. This will enable you to each to the side and pick up a drink with very little effort. Too high or too low and it is more easy to spill even to drop your cup or glass.
