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.
Wood console tables are usually configured as a rectangular cabinet-like piece of furniture, especially useful in a hallway or other somewhat narrow area. So if you have such an area just crying out for a piece of furniture to fill it, and fill it with style, you will most definitely want to consider the use of them. Such tables are one of the most versatile pieces of furniture you can find, great for small spaces but able to add some always needed storage to your room as well.
Once you get the console table you always wanted, make sure that you know exactly where you want it placed. The last thing you need to decide is how to decorate it and this is something that needs experimentation. Try anything you think could work in order to find the decoration that looks best and when you do, believe me, you will be entirely satisfied and you will understand that the time and effort you put into finding the perfect console table was worth it in every way.
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.
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.
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.
