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.
Address shape and scale to the console table. Visual interest can be created with contrasting shapes. If you have a lot of square or rectangle objects such a books, trays and boxes, place an object either on top or next to them that’s round or cylindrical for contrast. Also introduce objects that vary in height to bring visual weight to the vignette and help to create balance. Remember to keep it simple – don’t over-clutter. Allow white space for the eye to rest.
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.
There are a gargantuan variety to console tables on the market so which style should you choose? Consider the style of your current interior and the other elements within it. Select a model that works back with your existing pieces and compliments the aesthetic of your home.
