There are a gargantuan variety to console tables on the market so which style should you choose? Consider the style of your current interior and the other elements within it. Select a model that works back with your existing pieces and compliments the aesthetic of your home.
You could use a console table as streamlined dressing table by simply placing a mirror in the centre. It could also be used as a desk which is ideal in a bedroom as its slim shape means it won’t take up lots of your room. Place desk tides and organizers on and around the console to create handy storage spaces, just bear in mind that a console will be higher than your average desk.
Average Heights. Most console tables range in height from 26 to 36 inches. The difference in height depends on the style and age of the table. Longer tables generally run taller to keep proportions balanced. Antique console tables, such as the heavy and ornate pieces of Louis XIV are higher, while sleek, Mid-Century Modern styles average much shorter. Most modern consoles fall in the 29 to 33 inch range.
Turn a console table into a bedroom vanity by hanging a mirror above it and tucking a stool or chic chair underneath. Do not forget a light source, like a delicate table lamp, to finish this pretty spot for primping. Stash make-up and jewelry in small boxes on the tabletop since most consoles do not have drawers.Tip: Perfume bottles and jewelry can make for beautiful decor too. Keep them easily accessible and highlight their beauty on a pretty tray.
