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.
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.
Turn a console table into a bedroom vanity by hanging a mirror above it and tucking a stool or chic chair underneath. Do not forget a light source, like a delicate table lamp, to finish this pretty spot for primping. Stash make-up and jewelry in small boxes on the tabletop since most consoles do not have drawers.Tip: Perfume bottles and jewelry can make for beautiful decor too. Keep them easily accessible and highlight their beauty on a pretty tray.
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.
