Question: How high should my sofas end tables be?
I want to know how high your end table needs to be in relation to your sofa. Also what are the appropriate heights for the coffee table and console table in relation to the sofa height. I know it has something to do with the seat height and the arm height. THanks!

Answer: You want your end table to be slightly below the arm of your sofa. If it’s higher it can cause some problems. For instance, you don’t want to set a drink on the end table and have it tip over only to spill all of the contents right over the arm and into the cushions.

And you definitely don’t want it so low that you can’t reach it from a sitting position. You don’t want to have to lean over the sofa arm just to reach your coffee or latest issue of EGM.

Also take into consideration the light from the lamp on your end table. You don’t want the table so low or so hight that you can see the bare bulb.

So you want your end table to be a comfortable height. A height that allows easy access but won’t allow for disaster increase (such as a spilling liquid). And a height that will prevent temporary blindness from a bright, lamp bulb.

Answer: Mirrors should reflect anything except the ceiling if you only see the ceiling in it its too high.Eye level is best you must decide if that is sitting or standing.Its your home what pleases you is always the best height.
