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.
Average Heights. Most console tables range in height from 26 to 36 inches. The difference in height depends on the style and age of the table. Longer tables generally run taller to keep proportions balanced. Antique console tables, such as the heavy and ornate pieces of Louis XIV are higher, while sleek, Mid-Century Modern styles average much shorter. Most modern consoles fall in the 29 to 33 inch range.
A console table is one of the most useful items of furniture a home can have. It can provide additional storage which is always a bonus as it prevents clutter from building up, helping to keep a room looking tidy.
A console table is the perfect piece of furniture to transform a dead-space into an area that makes and grand statement! Due to its narrow, elongated proportions, a console is perfect for an entryway or hallway. It’s a piece that is not only functional but can also be dressed to set the tone for a space while also creating a sense of arrival that says ‘Welcome Home’!
