Another thing to keep in mind when it comes to style is the fact that some tables are extremely trendy for a short period of time, while others have a very classic look that will stay in style for years to come. Just remember that console tables, especially those in the entryway of your home, are often the first piece of furniture visitors will notice. This means it is much better to purchase a classic-looking table rather than a trendy one that will be out of style in a year or two.
Material. As mentioned already, wood gets high marks for durability, although style may cause you to opt for a metal or glass table. Also metal tables with tiles of glass or other material are becoming very popular and show no sign of going away any time soon. The type of material you choose does certainly say a lot about what kind of style you are looking for. Wood tables tend to be very classic in style, while metal tables are usually a bit more contemporary.
They say that the first impression is the last impression. Similarly, the first piece of furniture that one sees in a house always creates a lasting impression on everyone who enters your house. The more unique and special it is the better the impression created. A console is such a piece furniture that it is the first thing that one sees when coming in a house. Like a piece of art, console tables are not there just for creating an impression it is one piece of furniture that can always double up for many other useful units in the house.
Besides the style you should also consider what type of storage you want, if any with your console table. Some offer one drawer, others offer two or three. Some have large cabinets perfect for stashing board games and jigsaw puzzles in the living room or holiday decorations for the table top above in the hall. Still others have a combination of drawers and cabinets making the storage options abundant. If you are in need of a place to simply add a decorative touch to your room choose a console table with just a table top or a table top and lower shelf for a bit of simple elegance .
Inlays are also a way to really appreciate a piece of furniture. When you order a piece, especially with custom inlays, you know that item is going to be created with love, from the hands of a master at his craft. It will be a unique, one of a kind, piece that will add to your home for the years to come.
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.
When investigating this type of occasional table, be sure to check all your measurements to be sure they fit. Console tables are designed by furniture manufactures to blend well into today's homes. If you have an older home with a touch smaller square footage footprint than the open designed great rooms that are popular with builders. Consider a smaller table for your home that is scaled appropriately. A good rule of thumb is to go with a console table that measures 30 inches long up to 48 inches long. In remembering this rule, your room should accommodate the new piece of furniture with ease.
