A console table is one of the most useful items of furniture a home can have. It can provide additional storage which is always a bonus as it prevents clutter from building up, helping to keep a room looking tidy.
TOP TIP: Console tables have a lot less storage compared to sideboards due to the slim nature of their design. If storage is a must but you don’t have room for a storage unit, you can always store items in the open space underneath, either stacked or tidied away in stylish boxes.
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!
A console fits nicely behind the back of a sofa, which great for an area where the sofa backs onto a walkway rather than a wall. This helps to define the space and prevent the sofa from looking lost or floating in mid-space.
