Style vs. Function. Console tables are not always meant to be functional. In some cases, they are merely in a space to add elegance or style to a room that looks otherwise empty. In other cases, they may be useful for putting small items on, either decorative items like vases or everyday items like the daily mail. Before you set out to go shopping, just spend some time thinking about how you plan to use the console table. This will really help you decide what kind to purchase.
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.
For an added touch, you can have romantic music playing as you enter the room with a remote to be able to turn that down as the TV comes on.
If things go well through the evening, you can keep your final surprise in the pocket drawer that is in the console table. It's a perfect place to hide that ring for an unforgettable proposal.
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.
Durability. Shoppers also want to look for console tables that are very durable. While they may not hold as many things as a dining room table or a coffee table, shoddy construction can still cause you to retire your console tables before their time. A wood console table gets high marks for durability, while some metal console tables can become loose over time. If you are sure that you want a metal console table, then look for one that has welded joints rather than screwed or riveted joints. It is far too easy for screws to become stripped over time, and then the table will either need to be repaired or tossed out.
Most people are under the impression that these tables are strictly for hallways. After all, that's usually where you see most of them when you go in other people's houses. However, these tables are probably the most versatile piece of furniture at your disposal, and can be used in practically any room of the house. Don't limit yourself to using them only in a hallway, try out other areas and rooms of the house. I've seen amazing and elegant console tables in bedrooms, bonus rooms and even kitchens.
