How To Build A Sofa Table To Save Space

If you’ve never seen a sofa table before then you are about to discover something that’s very useful indeed! Usually, sofa tables are a long, thin table that fits perfectly right behind your couch, sometimes filling the space between its back and the wall or perhaps just visually finishing up the space division and giving you an extra spot to put things, depending on how you’ve got your seating laid out. Of course, decent sofa tables can be found in most home stores, but we’d always rather make something ourselves if we can.

That’s how we found ourselves scouring the Internet for DIY sofa table tutorials of all different kinds! Just in case you love the idea of leaning how to make one of your own as well, here are 15 of the very best ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration and guidance!
