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.
Sometimes all you need is a table to complete a room or space. Whether it is the hall or the living room a table such as a console table often adds the right amount of decorative flair and function to any space.
No matter what your need, you are sure to find a console table to match it. So, welcome guests with a bouquet of fresh flowers perched atop a glass topped console table with rustic yet elegant scrolling wrought iron legs. Finish your living room with a dark cherry finished wood table with twisting legs and a center drawer for holding coasters or a wine key. You'll be ready in an instant to quaff some wine with a few pals.
Now that you have decided what type and what shape of console table you want you can look at the finer details such as color and accents. It is easy to add a punch of refreshing color and style to a tired, dim room. Add some flair with a striped table in the living room behind your sofa. Or try some Asian allure with a black and red hand painted table in the hall. Deciding on the color and style is the fun part because you can change the whole mood of the room with one little table.
Many people today are confused when they think of the furniture term console table. In the past, consoles or hall tables were largely used as a decorative table or furniture item placed within a living area to store or display accessories. Today the console table use in a home decorating project has many more uses, and have in many cases become a focal point for a room.
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.
Looking for a table in a store also allows you to get a better feel for the craftsmanship of the piece, so always remember to examine the table in person. It's never a good idea to purchase a table without seeing it and examining it closely.
