Sherry J. Oswalt Oswalt. Console Tables. December 07th , 2017.
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.
To start with though, contemporary console tables will have one pretty basic design with simple lines, giving the furnishing a very sleek appearance. Sometimes there will be small design elements like softer lines or curves, but that is just every now and again. The different materials and finishes that come into play are what really put the look of contemporary console tables over the top. For example, you can get one that is made using both glass and metal with a base crafted from steel that has a chrome finish supporting a slightly black tinted table top. Or, you could purchase one that is crafted from pine that has a rich, black finish with a slight semi-glass appearance.
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.
You may be thinking you could just get an end table or an accent table to do the trick, but that is only if you have a little bit of stuff to put away. Console tables are quite a bit larger than accent tables or end tables, so they will offer a lot more storage space and help you keep your home looking clean and organized, despite all the things you know you have had to put away.
Console Tables - Perfect For the Living Room. No room in your house should be just thrown together. Each room should have a plan, and rhyme and reason before it comes to life. This is especially true for the living room. This is a room in the home where you will be doing a lot of entertaining, and spending a lot of family time. You want to make sure it is a space that is inviting for all kinds of activities and can handle what is asked of it.
