Space. Another very important thing when it comes to shopping for console tables is the amount of space you have to work with. Make sure to measure the space before you go shopping. Often console tables must fit into a very tight space. You also don't want them to take up an entire walkway area, so smaller is usually better. However, if you have an unusually large entryway area, then a larger table will look better. Just be sure to measure because any table can look great in the store, but it may not fit when you get it home if you haven't take the proper measurements.
To get the best out of console tables, the manner in which they are set up or arranged is rather important. You need to come up with the best ideas that will display your tables. In other words, you need to be creative-give free rein to your imagination. This article is a way of starting you on that part. However, don't limit yourself to the ideas.
Whether you are designing with a theme in mind or just starting to re-decorate a room it has never been easier to find the perfect console table for your décor. First you need to decide where you are going to put it. Do you need a table in the foyer to welcome guests with an oversized bouquet of fresh garden flowers? Do you need a table in the hall to hold linens as well as display a favorite photo from your trip to Paris? Maybe you want to cover up an old radiator in a bedroom without taking up too much space. Or perhaps you would like one to double as a buffet in the dining room as well as hold table linens and grandma's good silverware. Once you decide why you need or want a console table you can search for one that meets these needs as well as complements your existing décor. Choose a half moon or demilune table to cover up a radiator or add some curves to an angular room or hall. Some come with one or more drawers and some include a lower shelf. Try a rectangular one in the dining room or one full of drawers in the hall.
Before paying for anything make sure to visualize the exact console table you are looking for and try the best you can to find that exact console. There is no reason to rush into a decision which you may regret in the future. You will be able to find exactly what you are looking for if you just look hard enough and I can personally guarantee that.
The beckoning entrance, the extra storage in the hall, the only way to cover up that unsightly radiator; there is only one type of table that fits all of these descriptions and more, a console table. Sleek and rectangular, half moon and feminine, full of drawers or just a table, console tables have many shapes, sizes and configurations to fit your needs and tastes.
To start with, if you are just planning on shopping for console tables this is a good place. Ensure that the table you select is one that will blend in with whatever decorative theme you've decided upon. There are several tables to fulfill this and some of the options include: mirrored console table, white console table, antique console table and contemporary ones.
Not all wood console tables are just simple wooden tables with legs and a drawer or shelf. Indeed, some wood console tables are much fancier, even rivaling their ritzy furniture siblings made of marble and other luxurious materials. By using exotic woods or inlays, a wood console table can take on an air of luxury and sophistication.
