You'll find wood console tables in mission style, butler style and even ones to which you can add a hutch, making them an ideal piece for dining rooms. Now, you can store Grandma's best china in the hutch, linens and silverware in the drawers of the console table and some of your beautiful serving pieces on the shelves. Sometimes though, there will be neither shelf nor drawer, thus making this piece of furniture a true table.
Consoles are constructed out of many different materials including natural wood, stained or painted wood, metal, and glass. By far the most popular type is a wood console table with a decorative element like fluted legs, or a small amount of carving along the bottom edge of the rails. Most tables are made with four legs supporting the top, while some make an interesting design statement using two legs on the rear and one centrally located leg in the front. This three legged table is usually small in stance and design, and makes for a gorgeous addition to a more narrow hallway. Always check to see if the manufacture designed in a drawer for storage of car keys and the like. This hall table or console table with drawer make for a great addition.
There are appropriate console tables for every use. You just need to put enough time and effort in finding the best one for each case. A particular console table I have found to be very useful is a hallway console table. On such a table you can place anything you want and it can really make a difference for your "boring" hallway. You could place picture frames, a beautiful alarm clock or anything else you think would look good or make your life a little easier.
The shape of a console table is something that shouldn't be overlooked. Most are designed as straight squares or rectangles, but other tables are designed as half-circles which can be placed up against the back of a wall. If you choose the half-circle style, make sure there's going to be ample room to walk by still. Some people place large console tables in the hallway only to find out they can't comfortably walk by them.
Everybody wants to decorate their home with unique pieces and with different furniture. If you are working towards a more traditional contemporary look in your home, you will need to make sure you have contemporary console tables as a part of the mixture.
There are several pieces that you can also use to decorate them and they include: photo frames, lamps, flower vases, trophies, figurines, art pieces, carved images... the list is endless. These and several others can be put to good use. Additionally, ensure that the items all blend in with the tables and also with the other furnishings in the room. And don't forget to be creative.
