Modern Console Table - A Sleek Option For Your Living Room. If you have a small living space but want the feel of living large, it`s going to take some careful planning. The first thing you are going to have to select is your décor style. The best way to make the most of a small space is to choose modern or contemporary décor for the area. While this may seem to make no sense, as modern décor is supposed to be open and spacious, by using modern furniture to fill this space you will be able to reclaim a lot of the floor area of 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.
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.
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.
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.
