Trying to find the best coffee table for a small living room can be a huge struggle if you don’t know where to look. (I’ve been there.)

Fortunately, whether your living room is tiny or just narrow, there are plenty of smaller-sized tables that still look good.

If you’re having a hard time finding the perfect fit, we’ve rounded up the 8 best coffee tables for small spaces and apartment living.

1.Try a Small Round Table

Round tables are ideal for small rooms. They’re easier to fit into tight spaces than standard rectangular coffee tables but look every bit as good.

This small round coffee table from Wayfair measures 31 inches across. It’s compact enough to fit in tiny living rooms while still having enough space to hold books and a cup of coffee.

2.Go with Glass

Go with Glass

If you want the illusion that your room is bigger than it is, go with glass furniture. Because you can see through the glass, it makes your room look more open and airy. (Even if it’s as small as a closet!)

A great option is this small coffee table from Anthropologie. It has a beautiful brass detail fit for any modern or glam room and a mirrored shelf to provide extra space for your stuff.

3.For a Narrow Room, Pick a Slim Table
