If you are putting your coffee table in a living room then you might want to opt for a more formal coffee table. Popular living room styles have more fragile surfaces such as glass.

Those looking to place a coffee table in the family room might want to choose a sturdier coffee table. There are options with extra storage that you can opt for because you can store things like throw blankets for when you’re watching TV. You also want a table option with a surface that can take accidental spills or can act as a foot rest.


You don’t want to choose a table that seems like it doesn’t fit in the room whether it looks too small or too big for the space. If there will be couches near the table, leave enough space to walk around the coffee table comfortably.

The height of the table should be the same height as the seat of your couch, or it can be lower than the couch seat, up to an inch or two.


There are plenty of options when it comes to the table shape. If your new table will be in a smaller family or living room then an oval or rectangular shape might work best.

For tables that will be around large couches or larger seating, then a round or square shaped coffee table is the best option. Those with smaller kids might want to stay away from sharp cornered tables, so opting for a round or oval table might be best.

Types of Coffee Tables

The more traditional coffee table has a timeless style with four legs, a rectangle shape and is typically made from wood. Usually, you don’t have any storage with a traditional coffee table.

Another common type of coffee table is one with storage. These will have a shelf, a cubby, a basket, or drawers. The shape can be almost anything you desire from square, circle, oval, rectangle, or anything in between.

Another type of coffee table is a nesting table style. These will have smaller tables or sometimes ottomans that can be pulled out and used. If there are smaller tables, they can be used for books, beverage, or to hold other items. If there are smaller ottomans, then they can be used to sit down when you have extra guests.
