If you place a console table in your hallway or on your landing, it will instantly create a useful ledge for your keys, purse, letters and a variety of miscellaneous items.
Adding a table lamp on one side or both sides can offer a beautiful ambience in the evening and can be wired to a main switch or on an electrical timer so that you are greeted with warm welcome after a hard day at work. If adding a lamp on just one side, make sure the objects you place on the opposite side help to create an overall balance look. For example; if your lamp is on the right side of the console, a vase at a lower height could be placed at the left hand side.
If your console is sitting up against a wall in an entry way, you may wish to hang an artwork on a mirror above it. An artwork can make a grand opening statement for your home and is a great way to introduce colour and reflect your personality. A mirror opens up an area to create a sense of space, it will also help to reflect light and create a brighter feel, while providing a place to check your hair before you rush out the door. Tip: When selecting an artwork or mirror just be sure that the size works well with the scale and colour of the wall, the console and the other objects you are adding to the console.
TOP TIP: Console tables have a lot less storage compared to sideboards due to the slim nature of their design. If storage is a must but you don’t have room for a storage unit, you can always store items in the open space underneath, either stacked or tidied away in stylish boxes.
