Lindsay. Console Tables. June 02nd , 2018.
The obvious pieces of furniture you are going to likely get for the living room are a sofa, possibly a loveseat and other chairs and seating options for your guests. Then you will likely get a coffee table, and many people also want matching end tables. But this is where you may want to put on the brakes. While end tables are nice, if you are going to do a lot of entertaining in this room, you should probably think of furniture pieces that will help you do that. Sure, end tables will give you a place to put a drink or two, but console tables can offer a lot more. In addition to adding countertop space, console tables can also offer a lot of storage space to put things you will need to have close at hand when you are entertaining, such as coasters for those drinks that are about to be set down.
The colors and materials used in modern furniture are also helpful in making your space look larger than it is. Modern furniture themes are black and white. As long as they are not covered with clutter, these colors make a space look more open and clean. Both of these are crisp, and sharp colors. Couple that with the defined lines of modern furniture itself, and you have pieces that say they have reason, they have purpose, and they fit perfectly into the space.
You may be asking yourself why not just use any old table to fill the void? After all, you can put whatever you want on a tabletop, right? Well, this is true, but console tables have many more uses in the foyer. Many console tables have drawers or shelves below the tabletop. These are places to keep things you need. If you go out at night a lot, you may want to have a flashlight in that drawer. If you have a lot of kids coming and going, the shelves could be a great place to put their sports bag or even their books, so they don`t forget first thing in the morning.
A modern console table is perfect for an apartment or a condo where space of all kinds, from storage space to square footage is at a premium. An added bonus is the drawer in the modern console table is a good, out of the way, place for all those things that used to clutter up the tabletop. You may not have realized it, but reducing the clutter in a room can also make it look more spacious. Even if that clutter is on tables or other surface spaces, the more things are cluttered in a house, the more crowded the space feels.
When first creating your living room design, you need to map out the space on paper. Make sure to mark where there are doorways coming into the room, or where there are stairwells, fireplaces, windows and other things that may get in the way of some furniture pieces. Measure the open spaces between all of these obstructions, and then you can begin your search for the best pieces of furniture.
