Side tables FAQ

How do you figure out the right height for your side table?

You can trust Homes & Gardens. Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing the latest products, helping you choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

Ideally, your side table should not be more than two inches on either side of your sofa or chair’s arm or bed frame. So for example, if your the height of your sofa arms is 22 inches, the ideal side table is between 18 and 24 inches. If you can’t find the right side table that fits these measurements, however, most designers recommend going a little taller rather than shorter, for a more comfortable experience.
