How Do I Choose a Side Table?
As with all furniture, there is no one right answer when it comes to choosing what works for you when deciding on a side table. The two biggest points to consider are the couch and the table you want to get.
With so many options available, it can seem a staggering task to choose just the right one. But it does not have to be. Choosing the right table is a fun activity for the whole family. Here is a simple breakdown of the two most important considerations.
On average, the height of couch arms are 24 to 32 inches from the floor, and seat cushions are usually between 15 and 22 inches high. These are important measurements because you want to be comfortable when reaching for something on the table.
- If you have a family of varying heights, you can have slightly different heights for your side tables alongside the couch
- This will provide a space for everyone, while creating a diverse style
When shopping for the table, you want to purchase pieces that are slightly higher than the sofa if you will be eating or drinking. To do this, you may want to have two tables that slightly vary in height if you have a family with a wide range of heights. Using a set of nesting tables will accomplish this while keeping within the same design style.
The size of the table itself also requires attention. Once you have the measurements of the couch, you can then start thinking about the side table you want to buy. You will want to look at all measurements.
Before starting to shop for your new table, measure the room and the particular space where you would like the table to go. Use masking tape or other marker to mark out the space. Keep a record of this information so you can refer to it when shopping.
Measurements on average should be:
- 20 inches to 24 inches in height
- 16 inches to 22 inches in width
- Depth should equal the same as the couch
You also want to consider the cost of the table. Sales notwithstanding, you want a table that you can afford that also goes with the rest of the furniture. One way to calculate this is to equalize the dollar amount and the number of years you want to own the table—one dollar for each year. This is a simple calculation, but you will be happy.
You will want the tables to fit the room, so room size will be a consideration. Take note of all the furniture in the space and choose tables that fit in with the rest of the pieces.
You also want to prioritize comfort. Your family’s enjoyment of the space is just as important as the look. Doing this means thinking about what the room will most often be used for, and how your new side table fits into that plan.
