7 Ways to Make a Coffee Table Fit in Your Small Space

There’s nothing quite like a coffee table to define your space, add storage, and provide the perfect spot to place your beverage or coveted collection of coffee table books. If you’re working with a small space, fitting a coffee table may seem like an impossible dream, but that isn’t true. You don’t have to forego your favorite furniture pieces just because you’re in tight quarters. Case in point: Check out these seven coffee table ideas for small spaces.

Tables That Add Storage

When you’re looking for coffee tables for small spaces, consider the benefit of a table that gives you added storage. For example, you can contain your clutter and provide extra seating when you use something like a trunk ottoman or a shorter storage ottoman as your coffee table.

Lift Top Coffee Tables

Does your living room double as your eating space or work space? Consider getting a lift top coffee table, which adds a little extra storage in an otherwise hidden compartment. As the name implies, all or part of the coffee table top lifts up, giving you easier access to whatever you have on the table.

Nesting Tables

Another space-savvy idea, nesting tables make ideal coffee tables for small spaces. When not in use, they take up very little room, but when you need an extra side table, you have one at the ready. Plus, you can move the tables around easily to reconfigure as needed.

Tables with Curves and Thin Legs

Are you working with an awkward space? Consider a coffee table that’s round or has a curved design and thin legs, which makes it easier to get around tight spots without stubbing a toe or feeling overcrowded. Hairpin legs add a modern touch that works with any decorating style.

Martini-Glass Shaped Stools

For anyone looking to add a little bit of whimsy along with a table surface, specialty stools could be the solution. With sleek and interesting shapes, they add instant style along with the perfect surface to place a drink or two. When not in use as a table, these versatile pieces double as extra seating.

C-Tables and Arm Rest Wrap Tables

When you’re super-short on square footage, coffee table ideas for small spaces could include C-tables, which slide under your loveseat. Arm rest wrap tables, which turn any arm rest into an instant table, are also a possibility.

Coffee Table Stool Sets

With stools that nest under the table when not in use, some coffee table sets offer space-saving design and plenty of extra seating for when you’re entertaining. The table itself offers plenty of surface area for all your coffee table needs.

Whether you’re looking for added storage, extra seating, or simply sleek style, one these coffee tables for small spaces is sure to fit the bill. When you’re ready to start shopping, remember this: No matter the size of your space, CORT Furniture Rental has furnishings to fit your style and needs.
