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.
The best height for your console table depends on where you plan to put it, as they are available in different heights, styles and materials. Often used behind sofas for perched lamps and decorative accessories, a console table is also useful as a drop-off spot in the entryway or as a buffet in the dining room. Before you buy one, verify that the table is an appropriate height for the space and the people who plan to use it.
Along with an entry or hallway, a console table can also work well in other rooms of the home. It can act as beautiful addition to a dining room and living room by helping to define an area and also by creating a visual balance against heavier items of furniture such as the dining table or sofa for example. It is an important piece that can act as a ‘finishing touch’ to help a room to feel complete.
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.
