No matter what type of console table you have in mind you won't find a vast selection at your local furniture stores. Instead try shopping online and browse the best variety of console tables at the best prices from the comfort of your recliner if you have a laptop. You can chose from chest type tables, half-circle tables, ones with a drawer or two that can do double duty as a desk or ones that will help you create an elegant and welcoming entryway to your home. You'll easily find the right console table for you without ever leaving the house.
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.
The romantic air of a loveseat is unmistakable. The name says it all. It's a loveseat that tells me that it's meant to be a place for love. But how romantic can it really be if you have to get up every few minutes to get something to keep the mood going. This is why there was a fabulous invention called a console table.
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.
Place one in a hall or entryway under a mirror and show off some of your favorite things in style. Many even co me with drawers and lower shelves providing more storage and display space. Try one with a cabinet behind your sofa to store a few favorite board games and jigsaw puzzles ready for family game night.
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.
Many people look at these kinds of wood console tables as an heirloom piece for the family. They want the beauty of the craftsmanship to be passed on for years to come. In this case, while you could just settle for the design you have already chosen for the table, you could also take things one step further and have some of the metal inlay work engraved with a family name, date, or something else that will make it more meaningful to future generations.
