Perhaps one of the best reasons to have console tables in your living room is to clean up quick for unexpected company. Imagine you get five minutes warning that someone is coming over. You want the place to look nice, but this is the family living room and there are books, magazines, remotes and other small items all over the place. These items can be quickly tucked away in the console tables, hidden from the view of your guests, who will think you keep a spotless home, and later brought back out for everyone to use.
Lamps and other modern furniture accents are few and compact. They are going to be functional pieces that do their job, and take up a minimal amount of space while doing it. That, after all, is the goal of modern furniture, to fill the void that exists (the need for a piece of furniture) and that`s it. No pomp. No circumstance. The joy a piece of modern furniture gets is just being functional. Once piece of furniture you should invest in is a modern console table. A modern console table is not only a table, but offers a 2-for-1 deal when it comes to using the space in your living room. Instead of just offering a tabletop surface, a modern console table will likely have a drawer and/or shelves below that will hold books, and other things that may clutter up other portions of the room.
Another benefit of console tables is when you have your friends with kids visiting. The drawers in the console tables offer a good place to have a few games and toys tucked away so the little ones try to play with those items, instead of any of the valuables you may have on display in the room. Some console tables even have tops that are already game boards, of games like checkers, chess or backgammon, so the kids can pull the playing pieces out of the drawer and the game can immediately get underway.
Ask a designer. The hardest areas to decorate in a home are small ones. You don`t want to overdo the space and it`s hard to find furniture to fit that small environment, so you just ignore it. Not anymore. We`re going to give you a few tips to appreciate this less-loved area of the home. First, think of the uses of the foyer. Since it is the room closest to the front door, it is a natural place to have some type of furniture to set down things as you come in to the house. This is why you should consider console tables for this area.
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.
