Green Living Room with Furniture

Getting Around and Getting Comfy

Allowing between two to three feet of room for pass-through space in living rooms is a good starting place, more if wheelchairs or other mobility devices are needed. As for comfort, keep yourself and your visitors in mind. Coffee tables can be placed anywhere from 13 inches to 18 inches in front of a sofa, depending on the formality of the room, designer Abbey Koplovitz of AbbeyK, Inc. advises. \"For people who like to put their feet up, go towards the 13 inches. For formal areas, where traffic flow is key, shoot for more space.\" Photo Credit: Eric Roth
