Sherry J. Oswalt Oswalt. Console Tables. December 05th , 2017.
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 real trick, though, may be finding where to put all that stuff. Instead of plopping things on a chair or putting more things on an existing coffee or accent able consider adding console tables to your home. Console tables bump up nicely against a wall to add additional display space and storage room without adding a cluttered appearance to the living area.
The colors and materials used in modern furniture are also helpful in making your space look larger than it is. Modern furniture themes are black and white. As long as they are not covered with clutter, these colors make a space look more open and clean. Both of these are crisp, and sharp colors. Couple that with the defined lines of modern furniture itself, and you have pieces that say they have reason, they have purpose, and they fit perfectly into the space.
In the living room, a modern sofa is going to be cut more crisp and sleek than other sofas. When you take out all those extra fluffy pillows, cushions and claw feet from the equation, you get more space. Every inch saved on the sofa space is another inch of floor for you. Modern tables aren`t going to have cabriole legs sticking out, or any other pieces that make them take up more space than they need to. They will be sleek, well thought out pieces of furniture.
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.
