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.
Console tables come in every shape, size, color and style you can imagine. This means that you will be able to find a huge variety on anything you are looking for. You don't have to make any quick decisions as that could cost you money and time wasted. You need to make sure that you know what type of console table you are looking for before starting to search as this will also help you save time and money. There are many places that you could find what you are looking for that you have never even considered so what I would suggest is that you make some internet research first in order to find the most common places that one can find console tables and start your search from there.
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.
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.
Before you can buy one of these tables, you should first decide where you want to place it. Remember, you want it to match with the area you put it in. If you're placing the console table in the living room with mahogany furniture, then it's wise to look for a mahogany table, as it will flow with the rest of the look. However, if the table is going in your bedroom which is filled with black furniture, it's probably best to go with an all-black table color.
Then there are the shelves themselves to consider. Wood console tables sometimes have two or three shelves under the top allowing for all sorts of décor items to be added. Books, flowers, decorative boxes or figurines can find a home on these shelves, making the console table a focal point and a storage unit all in one.
