Comments Off on Sofa Tables: More Versatile Than You Think
People in the furniture industry talk a lot about ‘occasional tables.’ That’s the catch-all term for coffee tables, end tables and sofa tables. Ask anyone how coffee tables and end tables are used and you’ll get the correct answer. What are wooden sofa tables all about? You might be surprised so let’s talk about them.
Browse through our entire collection of our sofa tables. They are so versatile, you can use them in just about every room in your house. Here are some of the main ways sofa tables can enhance comfort and beauty in your home.
Sofa Table as Aesthetic Room Divider
If your living room is adjacent to another room – such as your dining room — a sofa table makes a fantastic divider. Just place the table directly behind your sofa. Deck it out with items like table lamps, books, candy dishes and figurines. Watch your sofa table go to work. First, it gives your home a grand first impression, adding beauty to the dining room. Second, it enhances the comfort of the living room itself. How? Family members or guests seated on the sofa can have easy access to items on the sofa table, such as lights, books and sweets. Of course, in this position the sofa table also makes the back of your couch more attractive.
Sofa Table as Buffer Between Sofa and Wall
Living rooms are most comfortable when they have an intimate feel. So in cases where there is a large space between the entertainment center and the couch, placing a sofa table between the sofa and the wall works wonders. For starters, the sofa table provides space for traffic around the living room itself. Also, it gives access for electrical outlets, and allows unimpeded airflow from the radiator or vent. (In this scenario, you can run electric wires though a flat power strip that runs inconspicuous on the carpet.)
As in the case above, the sofa table immediately behind the sofa (hence the name), looks and works best when the table is about the same height as the sofa. Also, if you place the sofa table immediately behind the sofa, you might wish to order one that matches your coffee table and end tables.
Dining Room Sideboard, Hallway and Bathroom
The tall stance, wide profile and narrow depth of a sofa table lends itself to serving as an excellent dining room sideboard. If you choose an enclosed sofa table or an open unit with a broad bottom shelf, you will gain some valuable storage space for your company dishes, silverware and other items.
Decorated with freshly cut flowers, a sofa table is ideally suited for your foyer or hallway. Also, if you have a large bathroom and not enough storage, a sofa table could come in handy. You can store your towels and washcloths down below and place nice decorations on top.
