1. Determine The Size of The Coffee Table That Suit Your Needs

One of the benefits of DIY is you can make your table any size you want. To get the proper measurements, you can use the couch in your living room as a reference. The spacing should be around 35.5 cm to 45.7 cm between the table and the couch. It’ll be close enough for drinks to be reached but far enough away to avoid injuring your knees.

The average height of a coffee table is 40.6 to 45.7 centimeters. Because couch heights differ, strive for a chevron wood coffee table with the same height as your couch or 5 cm higher or lower. It should be at least half the length of your couch, and it’s much better if it’s two-thirds the length. The table should be 45 to 61 centimeters wide.
