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.
Any size or style of console will do, from a glamorous metallic model to a rustic weathered-wood design. For this example, we chose a streamlined black-and-gold console inset with glass. One consideration: A lower shelf means double the styling potential, so consider how many pieces you want to display when choosing your table.
Console Table in Entryway. A console table in the entryway provides a strong focal point and first impression for guests entering your home. The best decorated console tables mix style and function. A mirror, lamp and family photos (above) provide the perfect spot to welcome guests. If you do not have a coat closet, think about a coat rack or hooks to gather guests belongings. A small bowl can hold keys and cell phones. Tip: Space in the entryway is often limited. Tuck a pair of patterned ottomans under your console table and give guests a place to sit and slip on their shoes.
Console table as TV Stand. Console tables are naturally narrow, enabling them to take up far less floor space than a traditional TV stand or media center. Look for a sturdy console table that will hold the weight of your TV and make sure it is wide enough to accommodate the cable box, DVD player, or stereo. Tip: Since most console tables do not have as much storage as media centers, storage boxes are perfect for keeping DVDs and CDs close by but out of sight.
