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 greatest thing about a console is it is a ‘place anywhere’ piece. Its slender proportions will work well in most spaces so it can be easily relocated to another room in the future if required. It’s also a piece you can take with you in the instance of moving house and it should fit seamlessly into the next space.
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.
If you’re planning on placing a console in your hallway, space awareness is key. You don’t want guests entering your home and bumping straight into your table! Keep in mind that the average hallway is around 90 -100cm in width, with the majority of console tables measuring between 30cm and 40cm in depth. Based on these measurements, this allows for plenty of room to walk past but it’s always important to check.
