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.
A console is also the perfect solution for filling empty nooks and spaces. For example, in front of a staircase wall. A console table can be used as a serving bar for entertaining. It makes a great bar cart for displaying and serving drinks or laying out food dishes.
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.
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.
