Shopping for a coffee table? Take your tape measure. The dimensions of your coffee table are almost as important as the shape and style. If the table is too large or too small, the room will feel unbalanced and out of proportion. You want to achieve a comfortable and stylish room, this can be achieved in part by choosing the correct furniture that is properly sized. Here are 3 key measurements you can use as your guide when hunting for a coffee table that will work well in your space.


The proper height for a coffee table is the same height as the seat cushions on your sofa lounge or  2 – 5cm lower.

A coffee table should be approximately two-thirds the length of your sofa.

There should be between 12-18 inches of space between a coffee table and the seating surrounding it.

There are so many coffee table shapes to choose from use our guide to help you with your selection process.
