When choosing where to place your coffee table, be sure to leave enough space between your sofa and the table to move around with ease but close enough to be able to reach anything placed on the table. The standard space to leave between a coffee table and sofa is 14-18 inches and the height of your coffee table should be no lower than 1-2 inches from the seat of your sofa. 6) How do you clean a coffee table? Depending on the material of your coffee table, there’s a few ways to keep it clean and looking brand new.

Wood coffee tables can simply be dusted to remove any surface dirt, whereas marble coffee tables can be cleaned using a non-abrasive cloth and water.
