Wooden Furniture & Tables: Everything You Need to Know

The first item we need to talk about is console tables…

The length of a console table behind a sofa or sectional should be around two-thirds to three-quarters of that item’s length. It doesn’t matter if the wall is just a few feet wide when compared to a full wall; the same ratio applies.

In order to keep the console from overtaking the sofa’s back, it should never be higher than the sofa’s back when it is positioned behind it. If your sofa and console are separated by a tier effect or a gap, they will appear unbalanced and uncomfortable. Console tables should be placed in the middle of the back of an adjacent sofa, a piece of wall, or a wall. As long as there’s enough room on each side, it doesn’t matter if they’re positioned against a couch back or against the wall baseboard.

A place where you may have a meal or a cup of coffee.

It’s important to keep in mind that, whether sitting on a couch or an armchair, everyone in the seating arrangement must be able to reach the coffee table while seated. Ideally, the coffee table should be half to two-thirds of the sofa’s length (or area of negative space for sectionals). The coffee table’s height should be the same as the sofa’s seat height.

The size and form of a coffee table are usually determined by the amount of space in the room and the rest of the furniture. A tiny coffee table is required if an armchair is placed perpendicular to a sofa, for example. Coffee tables that are too small for a spacious space with two armchairs perpendicular to the sofa would seem out of place.

A coffee table can be positioned around a sofa in an area of negative space. It should be placed 14 to 18 inches away from the sofa so that anyone sitting on the couch or in any nearby armchairs can readily reach it.

Cabinetry and Bookcases

Bookcases and cabinets in a space are both visually appealing and functionally functional. If you have a tiny space, opt for a bookcase with a few open shelves to keep the area looking open and spacious.

For a single bookshelf or cabinet, the wall’s width should be no greater than two-thirds to three-quarters of its maximum. When a large number of items are clustered together, the same ratio might be used (including any negative space in between pieces). There may be more storage space if a bookshelf runs along the wall, but it will create a cramped sense in the area. This is the greatest place for built-ins or other cabinets that mimic the look of built-in cabinetry. Walls that are bordered on both sides are not included in this list.

There should be a stretch of wall in the centre of the bookshelves and cabinets against which they are set. The centre of the room should be occupied by many bookcases (including negative space).
