Don't let the small size of your home make you think you can't have attractive furnishing to entertain your guests. With the many sofa and console tables available, your guests will be comfortable and you'll have a home you can feel pride in.
Sofa tables work in two different ways. They can either be selected to blend in with the back of the sofa, or they can set it off as an accent feature. Either way you go, it is very important to remember that the back of the sofa is extremely important when you are looking for these tables. Most people do not spend much time looking at the back of their sofas, and they forget to check it out before they go shopping. Just take a good long look at how the sofa backs up to the other space and determine the best way to approach it. Don't forget to measure the length and height of the sofa before shopping. This will ensure that the tables you look at aren't too big or too small for the sofa you have. Once you have your measurements, then it's time to start looking at tables.
In modern homes, this sort of table is especially useful in open plan spaces; they add style and can sometimes perform a double function. Sofa tables with shelves can display books and ornaments, while those with drawers can be a useful place to store the usual mass of remote controls.
Next, put your sofa table up behind the sofa. This is going to accomplish a few things. First it will be giving you the utility area you needed, but it will also take that less than impressive table and move it where it will do it's job without being the focus of too much attention, since the attention is already going to be focused elsewhere.
In the living room, sofa tables continue to be used as an item to display some of your favorite heirlooms, photos or keepsakes. Of course, many people still use them as the traditional coffee or end table, something that will never go out of style.
- Length - It doesn't get any tackier than looking at a sofa table that sticks out past one end of the sofa. It looks like someone wasn't paying attention to the details of fitting furniture together. And that's probably exactly what happened. Instead of trying to figure out a way to cover up ill-fitting furniture after the fact, take the time to measure the length of your sofa and make sure that the table will fit well within its limitations. It's OK for a table to be a little short, but having it stick out past the sofa is not going to look right.
