Console tables with open shelving are a great fit for home bars. They showcase the beautiful colors of bottles and glassware and are easily accessible when entertaining. Organize spirits and mixers from glassware on different shelves.It makes cleanup easier and keeps things organized. Keep fresh ingredients on the tabletop when entertaining. Tip: Fun bar accessories like napkins, cocktail umbrellas, and garnishes should be tucked away when not in use.
The shape and size of the majority of console tables mean that they are designed to be posited against a wall. This style of table is generally thinner in width and therefore benefits from having the support of the wall to lean, prop and style items against it.
A console table has an advantage over a sideboard, buffet or credenza as it occupies less space and its open base design makes it appear visually lighter. Most models are commonly rectangular, however there are some that a referred to as Half Moon or Demilune which is like an elongated semi-circle or an oval cut in half.
A glass console table is ideal for placement in a smaller space as the transparency of the glass really helps to create the illusion of more room. Glass is visually very light, making it something to really consider if you’ve already got a lot of colour and design going on in your space.
