Hereof, what is the best height for an end table?
The rule of thumb is that its surface area should be equal to or just below the height of the sofa arms. For a standard sofa, that's around 25 inches, but get out the measuring tape to be sure (I did, and it's a good thing — the arms on mine hit 28 inches). Most end tables are between 22 and 30 inches.
Secondly, how tall should living room end tables be? 25 to 30 inches tall
Similarly, what size should an end table be?
Most end tables are between 22 and 30 inches. If you can't find tables you like within your target height range, err on the side of shorter rather than taller.
How can I make my end table taller?
Prop up your table with bed risers. To make your table taller in a hurry, purchase bed risers to place under your table legs. Bed risers can be found in wood and plastic, in an assortment of sizes and shapes. Be sure to purchase a set of risers that will support the weight of your table.
