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!
Measuring Tables. To determine the right height for a console table, take measurements in the space you intend to use it. If you’re placing the table behind a sofa, measure the height of the sofa back. A console table should be level with the sofa or about 1 inch below it. For entry tables or dining room buffets, look for console tables that are around 33 inches tall. This average height allows most people to comfortably access its tabletop.
A white or grey oak veneer finish has a wonderfully tactile and textured quality as you can see the stylish wood grain running throughout. Oak veneer finishes are much less reflective than gloss, making it a great alternative to having a bright, glossy finish in your home.
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.
