About this Episode

Cocktail or Coffee Table? What do you call it? No matter what you call it we have lots of great tips and measurement and good ideas for you today!

If you have a tape measurer it can help you find the perfect coffee table that will work in your home. Measure the top of the seat height, the length of your sofa and the height of your coffee table. A coffee should be about the seat height of your sofa cushions, about 2/3 the length of your sofa. Leave about 12 - 18 inches between a sofa and a coffee table.

Did you know that the moniker "coffee table" came about to put coffee table book on... or whatever they called those books at that time!

Take a good look at any room that has a coffee table in it, the coffee table just might be the focal point of the room.
