Once you find the perfect sofa, it is time to start the search for side tables that optimize the look and function of your new piece of furniture. Use this guide to figure out how to choose the right side tables for your new sofa:

Your table should sit no lower than an inch beneath the arms of the couch for optimal function. Make sure the width is suitable for the space that you have and looks good with your sofa. If you choose a simple side table, it lets the sofa stand as the visual foundation for the room. Choose a table with a drawer or some shelves to increase storage space. While you do not have to choose matching tables for either side of the sofa, you should find some that complement each other.

Furniture Arrangement Ideas for Small Living Rooms

The right furniture can create an attractive and inviting space in any room. This is especially important for small spaces that can feel crowded when filled with the wrong furnishings. You will find a variety of furniture sizes and styles at the Home Consignment Center in Southern California. Use this guide to discover the best pieces to help you arrange furniture for a small living room: 

Keep Open Pathways

Your living room provides a place where family and friends can gather to spend time together. Make sure your loved ones can access this room by creating open pathways. Arrange your furniture to offer seating for all of your guests while maintaining walkways that lead to these seating options.

Make a Circular Arrangement

Whether you like to watch TV in your living room or sit and talk with guests, you should arrange your living room furniture in a circular design. Place your sofa or other larger seating options directly across from your TV or other focal point. Add smaller seats and other furniture on each open side of the room for a complete living room arrangement.

Select Smaller Pieces

Many apartment dwellers believe they can make the most of their small spaces by choosing big pieces of furniture. But bigger pieces can be overwhelming in a small room, making the space feel cramped and crowded. Smaller pieces of furniture provide fashion and function without taking up too much space, allowing you to make your small living room appear and feel larger.

Look for Multi-Purpose Furniture

The size of your living room does not have to limit what you can do with the room. Fill your living room with everything you want and need by investing in multi-purpose furniture. Look for coffee and end tables with hidden storage to hold games, exercise equipment, or home office supplies. Choose a sofa bed to turn your living room into a guest room quickly and easily.
