The other benefit of console tables is they have a little more personality than regular tables do in the foyer. Because of the shelves, drawers and possible tray or other decorative tops, a console table in the foyer can really set the stage for the rest of your house. No matter the style, you can find console tables to match your décor. If you have a Victorian theme, you can have a Victorian console table with a simple vase of flowers on top to give people a hint of what the rest of the house will hold. Have an old country style home? There`s a console table that will match that theme as well and let visitors know what they will be walking into as they make their way through your house.
When first creating your living room design, you need to map out the space on paper. Make sure to mark where there are doorways coming into the room, or where there are stairwells, fireplaces, windows and other things that may get in the way of some furniture pieces. Measure the open spaces between all of these obstructions, and then you can begin your search for the best pieces of furniture.
The obvious pieces of furniture you are going to likely get for the living room are a sofa, possibly a loveseat and other chairs and seating options for your guests. Then you will likely get a coffee table, and many people also want matching end tables. But this is where you may want to put on the brakes. While end tables are nice, if you are going to do a lot of entertaining in this room, you should probably think of furniture pieces that will help you do that. Sure, end tables will give you a place to put a drink or two, but console tables can offer a lot more. In addition to adding countertop space, console tables can also offer a lot of storage space to put things you will need to have close at hand when you are entertaining, such as coasters for those drinks that are about to be set down.
Contemporary console tables have been created in so many sizes and shapes they can fit any space you need to put them into. If you just need a small table to show off a collectible in your home, that is not a problem for contemporary tables. You will be able to find a table that may almost seem like a pedestal display that came right out of a museum. Additionally if you are a little cramped for space, but would like to add a little more display area to a room, you can probably find an unused corner. Contemporary tables will be able to fit right into this little bit of available space and offer you the surface area you were looking for without taking away from the precious usable square footage you had left in the room.
Who would have thought that almost a century later, contemporary console tables would still be considered as part of the must-haves in furniture fashion and trends. One reason contemporary console tables are so beloved is their simplicity. Contemporary console tables are an easy way to dress up or dress down a room and offer more space as needed for various purposes, whether it be to offer more room for drinks while entertaining, or to hold a lamp while you curl up with a good book. Additionally contemporary console tables are a great way to show off some of your collectibles. Many people today have a dual purpose for their homes. One as a place to live, and two as a museum of sorts for showing off their life. Contemporary console tables can help in this venture by offering display space to show off some of your life`s most interesting collection pieces. Since contemporary console tables are simple in design, they will not take away from that special item you place on them. Through all these uses, contemporary console tables will also not take away from the rest of the décor you have created for the room. Instead they will blend in to whatever environment they are placed in. They are the chameleons of furniture.
