Suggestions for Using Console Tables
1.) In an Entryway - Console tables are perfect for entries or foyers with a lamp, family photo or beautiful candlesticks for a great first impression. A sunburst style or other mirror above draws your focus to the console area. A striking piece of art above is another great choice. If you need a spot to drop your keys or wallet, a pretty bowl on top of the console helps organize and hide the clutter. The space below the console table is a good spot to tuck away ottomans for extra seating, storage cubes or interesting baskets.
2.) Behind a Sofa - Console tables can also serve as sofa tables, placed behind a couch or sectional, whether that is flush against a wall or in the middle of a room. The table can hold artwork, lighting, interesting figurines or anything you want kept within reach. If your console is exposed, it could also serve as a bar with stools or as a writing surface alongside the sofa.
3.) In a Bedroom as a Desk - Since console tables are usually fairly narrow in depth, they make a good addition to a bedroom, guest room or even a small home office when used as a work or writing surface. Make sure the design of your console will allow for leg room to work and maybe even some storage underneath.
4.) In a Bedroom as a Makeup Vanity - Create your own unique vanity area by adding a mirror with a console table along with a stool or chair and a cute lamp. Keep makeup organized in pretty boxes (collage your own for fun) or baskets.
5.) As a TV Stand - Console tables make great stands for televisions since they are narrow and won't hog your floor space. The piece needs to be sturdy enough for the weight and one with shelves is a good consideration to hold the cable box, DVD player and other accessories.
6.) As a Bar - If your console table has shelves, it could serve as the perfect home bar also. A couple of small drawers would be an added bonus for storing the small items like cocktail napkins and stir sticks. Keep glassware on a pretty tray and organize your bar tools and liquors for the perfect entertaining spot.
