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.
A console table has an advantage over a sideboard, buffet or credenza as it occupies less space and its open base design makes it appear visually lighter. Most models are commonly rectangular, however there are some that a referred to as Half Moon or Demilune which is like an elongated semi-circle or an oval cut in half.
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.
Console tables with open shelving are a great fit for home bars. They showcase the beautiful colors of bottles and glassware and are easily accessible when entertaining. Organize spirits and mixers from glassware on different shelves.It makes cleanup easier and keeps things organized. Keep fresh ingredients on the tabletop when entertaining. Tip: Fun bar accessories like napkins, cocktail umbrellas, and garnishes should be tucked away when not in use.
