Factors to Consider Before Buying a Sofa Side Table

With so many options available on the market, selecting a sofa side table that meets your style aesthetic and functional needs can be tricky. Therefore you must consider some factors to ensure the piece you buy lasts for a long time and works well with your interior style. 

Size

It's best to measure the floor space and cut out a mock-up paper to determine the ideal size of the side table you want next to your sofa set. This will give you a realistic vision of how well a side table would fit into the space available and harmonize with your existing décor. But as a general rule of thumb, a sofa side table should not span more than the width of one seated section of the sofa. That is to ensure ample surface space for holding table lamps, books, or potted plants as decorative elements. 

Height

One of the important factors to consider when purchasing a sofa side table is its height. It plays a significant role in the visual aesthetics and determines the functionality of this piece in your interior. We recommend getting a sofa side table within 2 inches of the arm height of the sofa. It is supposed to sit next to, but never as tall as the back height of your couch. That would completely disrupt the harmony of the room! A side table that is much shorter or taller than the sofa would not allow for a comfortable reach to the table, reducing the efficiency of the piece. 

Purpose

Based on how you wish to use your side table, multiple styles enhance the functionality to meet your needs. For example, sofa side tables with drawers or cubby holes provide additional storage space. To keep remote controls, books, magazines, and other regular items to keep the room clutter-free and more organized. For smaller rooms with limited space where a fixed table won't fit, C-shaped side tables are a great option as they take minimal floor space. Side tables that slide under the sofa are portable and can serve various purposes in almost any room. However, if the style is a priority, go for contemporary pieces with eccentric shapes and shiny finish to make a statement in the room. 

Material

Glass side tables are an absolute beauty when it comes to looks and aesthetics. Although fragile, they are a popular choice due to their transparency, making any room appear larger, emphasizing an airy feel and a sophisticated appearance.

Metal side tables are highly durable and versatile, available in various shapes and finishes to complement a wide range of interior settings. Pieces with a weathered tone will perfectly complement industrial homes, while those with shiny surfaces exude a modern influence. 

Wooden side tables are a natural beauty on their own. With intricate detailing, earthy tones, and rich textures, wooden pieces will add a sense of warmth to your interior decor. Wood is an excellent choice for traditional homes if you want a long-lasting piece of furniture that will last for years.

Points to Remember:

  • Make sure to measure the available space on either end of your couch to choose a side table that fits well and increases functionality for a welcoming atmosphere.

  • It's best to have a side table that is the same height as or within 2 inches of the sofa's arm for ergonomic reasons and visual coherency in the room. 

  • Glass sofa side tables with mirrors or open shelves reflect light and create the illusion of a larger space. Making any small living room appear more open and airy.

  • Minimal ornamentation with a clean-lined design and a lighter finish is ideal for contemporary style. At the same time, dark wood and decorative details set a luxurious tone in traditional homes.
