Coffee Tables For Small Spaces Apartment Therapy Although there are plenty of ready made wrought iron coffee tables made if you have the funds available it is worth considering having your own custom made one built instead. There are many metal workers around who can create a design that is not only truly unique but will fit in with the decor of the room in which it is to be placed. When it comes to purchasing a wrought iron table whether a ready made or custom type one you must make sure that it is of a size that fits well in the room where it is to be placed. Plus make sure that it is of a size that those who are sat on the couch or chairs around it can easily reach it without them having to tip too far forward from their seat. It is a good idea to measure how long the couch in your home is and then purchase a table that is around two thirds the length of it. So if for example your couch measures 6ft long then opt for a wrought iron coffee table that measures 4ft.
Along with making sure that your wrought iron coffee table is the right length you need to make sure that it is the right height. As a general rule of thumb make sure that the table height brings the top level with the height of the seating. This will then help to ensure that people won't need to place pressure on their bodies to reach to the table for their drinks. Plus there is far less chance of them having a mishap and spilling their drinks as they lift them.
