Choosing a Cocktail Table: Rules of Thumb for Sizing & Placement
Choosing the appropriate cocktail table for your space is all about proportion and placement - the table in relation to the sofa and other seating. Here are some easy to remember rules of thumb:
- Height - the cocktail table top should be close to level with the seating around it.
- Length - the proportion that seems "right" and is most visually pleasing is when a table measures two-thirds of the length of the sofa. Remember a sofa and cocktail table that are the same length will look unbalanced.
- Positioning - the optimal distance between a cocktail table and the sofa, loveseat, bench or chairs that surround it is 18 inches. That means when entertaining, the table will be within arm's reach so guests can easily set down and pick up drinks or snacks.
