- Function - if you aren't planning to put your sofa table against the wall with the sofa in front of it, can it serve an extra function? Many are set in the middle of the room with a sofa on one side, and open access to the other side. This is a great space for extra storage. Look for a table with drawers, shelves, and other amenities you can put to use.
Some people wonder if they can really put a sofa table into their living room, and it's not about the money. They think there isn't enough space in their living room because they have a small floor plan. This is actually a time when sofa tables shine. Since they are right up against the sofa they take up less space than using a coffee table would, since there does not have to be room to move around the table.
These tables are available in many styles, colors and sizes. A very popular style is the ones with a fold-down leaf. When your guests are eating, you lift up the leaf to make more room. When the dinner is over, you fold down the leaf to allow more space in the room. Sofa or console tables are not only practical but also very beautiful in the dining room or living room. They've changed a lot in style, size and appearance for the modern home.
Coffee tables are a very common style of sofa tables. These modern sofa tables should be chosen carefully. Don't assume because it's a name brand that it's going to be perfect for your great room. Choose the size as carefully as you choose the style and color. The color should blend well with your furniture, so choose neutral colors unless they're wood, which goes with almost anything. If the coffee table is used for coffee or appearance, the height won't really matter. However, if you'll be using it to rest your feet, consider that height and make sure it's tall enough.
As with an accent table, console and sofa tables don't have to match the other tables in your room. They can of course, but they don't have to. Instead, you can go for a statement piece, choosing something just a little more ornate or embellished to draw attention to it. These tables are designed with this in mind and even though you may find a wallflower or two in the bunch, chances are good that you'll be able to find a table with lots of personality, whether you want something chic and modern or classic and timeless for your home.
Because so many couples and families are in smaller homes requiring smaller but practical furnishings, name brand furniture manufacturers are getting involved in making the type, size and style of furniture needed. There's not a problem with getting designs to match your current home décor as sofa tables are made in woods, metals and glass that will match any fabrics that may have been used in your sofa. If you can't find what you need to match your home, you may consider have one custom made. This is always a very popular option.
