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.
While many people only see console tables as pieces that would go in the living room, they can really be spread throughout the house to offer a number of storage opportunities. You could place one console table in the entryway, as a place to put away keys, the mail, or other small items you may regularly have as you walk in and out of the house. This would be a great place for a more ornate console table. It could have one drawer to put those little items out of the way, but the rest could be a beautiful piece of wrought iron or hand tooled wood that will put visitors in awe as soon as they step in the door.
You may be asking yourself why not just use any old table to fill the void? After all, you can put whatever you want on a tabletop, right? Well, this is true, but console tables have many more uses in the foyer. Many console tables have drawers or shelves below the tabletop. These are places to keep things you need. If you go out at night a lot, you may want to have a flashlight in that drawer. If you have a lot of kids coming and going, the shelves could be a great place to put their sports bag or even their books, so they don`t forget first thing in the morning.
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.
Bamboo, aluminum and black lacquered wood and curvaceous shapes or added curlicues of aluminum or wrought iron are just some of the ways by which this old stand-by has come of age. Once you have one in your home, you`ll readily see why they`ve been so accepted and well-loved for lo these many years. They are ready to come home with you and add tons of style, while performing an important storage task, contemporary console tables will add a new dimension to your home`s décor. You`ll wonder how you ever got along without one!
