People often give a lot of thought to choosing a new sofa, then the cocktail table becomes an afterthought. The cocktail table is just as important as the seating in your living room. The wrong one can make or break the way a room functions. Before you buy, you should consider how you want to use it.

In a living room with a sectional, a round table is often the right fit. Those sitting on the inside can easily move around it as they get up and down, since it creates a nice flow. Choose one with a pedestal base instead of legs to keep the space looking clean and uncluttered.

Tables constructed of see-through materials such as glass or lucite are perfect for small spaces. This will create visual space, which makes the room appear larger. They also allow light to bounce around the room more freely, making it seem lighter and brighter. This glass and metal piece is polished and well-suited to a formal living space.

An upholstered cocktail ottoman is often a go-to in a family room. They provide a soft spot for propping up your feet and extra seating when needed. Many ottomans come with a lift top to provide storage, which is always a plus. Upholstered cocktail ottomans are especially nice for homes with small children since there aren’t any pesky sharp corners to bump into.
