Adding a table lamp on one side or both sides can offer a beautiful ambience in the evening and can be wired to a main switch or on an electrical timer so that you are greeted with warm welcome after a hard day at work. If adding a lamp on just one side, make sure the objects you place on the opposite side help to create an overall balance look. For example; if your lamp is on the right side of the console, a vase at a lower height could be placed at the left hand side.
If the table has a shelf, it’s also good to check the height and its weight bearing. This is so you know that everything you want to display will fit nicely in the space available.
When selecting objects to decorate your console consider your needs. Styling is not just about creating beauty, just as importantly styling is functional. You can incorporate décor objects that will actually help to make life easier or help to keep your space clutter-free! For example, placing a decorative box or bowl on your console table to conceal the contents of your husbands pockets is both stylish and functional and means you will never lose your keys again!
Depending on what colour finish you choose, you can style, coordinate and really modernise your space. Brighter colours are perfect for adding a fresh and vibrant feel, so consider what atmosphere you want to create in your space to help with your colour selection. A white gloss finish will instantly add a clean, crisp and modern luxe look while darker hues such a taupe will add a warm and tactile feel.
