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.
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.
Once you see the variety of console tables available and their myriad of uses you may just find one for every room. Try one as a TV stand in the bedroom or a writing desk in the corner of the family room, or even as a catch all in the entryway. It is perfect resting spot for keys or a handbag. And besides use you can narrow down your search by shape, style or top material. Say you want a half circle table with lots of drawers or maybe one with a tropical twist wrapped in woven sea grass. Maybe you want a rectangular one with a roomy lower shelf for displaying a few things. You'll easily find the console table of your dreams hen you shop online and since you'll be at home you can take measurements to ensure that you find a table that fits perfectly in your designated space.
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.
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.
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.
