Tips For Choosing Modern and Contemporary Console Tables and Sideboards. Contemporary console tables can be functional, decorative or a mixture of the two. Modern sideboards have the advantage of narrow designs, so they can be put in a hallway or foyer without cramping the space. Contemporary sideboards usually feature drawers and doors or shelves to hold linens, dishes, china or other decorations. In addition to the shelves, the table top makes a great display area for decorative items. It`s a great way to accentuate and personalize a room.
If you`re not quite feeling contemporary console tables, don`t worry, there are a lot of other style options to choose from as well. That list consists of those that have a traditional feel, others that are more on the antique side, some that are more colonial in nature, and you can even get ones that combined different styles. To easily look into all the choices that you could possibly get for your home, the thing to do is to go online and do your comparison shopping there. It`s fast and you don`t even have to leave your home to do it. When it comes down to it, contemporary console tables are just a great way to improve the look of that hallway in your home.
A tiered look is also very modern and although similar to shelves, the tiers usually overlap the legs. Legs and tiers are then made of unusual material combinations, such as glass and aluminum or wicker and wrought iron. The tiers may also be held on with obviously over-large bolts or placed on legs of curled wrought iron or ornamental aluminum.
Display Cases. Contemporary console tables usually are totally open or have glass doors. These can serve many purposes. Shelves can be great for china, photographs, books and travel souvenirs. Modern sideboards that have glass doors have the advantage of being dust free and easy to keep clean, though you`ll want to wipe down the glass every now and then. Some contemporary sideboards have no glass, which has the advantage of making the contents easy to view and access. Choose a display style that fits your decoration.
In addition to those materials and finishes, contemporary console tables can also be made from a slew of others finished in many different ways as well. Some of the other options include woods like maple, cedar, and alder along with metals like wrought iron and regular iron while other finishing options are a simple lacquer applied to the wood or hand painted colors and those for the metal might be hand rubbed or polished.
