Ask a designer. The hardest areas to decorate in a home are small ones. You don`t want to overdo the space and it`s hard to find furniture to fit that small environment, so you just ignore it. Not anymore. We`re going to give you a few tips to appreciate this less-loved area of the home. First, think of the uses of the foyer. Since it is the room closest to the front door, it is a natural place to have some type of furniture to set down things as you come in to the house. This is why you should consider console tables for this area.
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.
Contemporary Console Tables - Withstanding the Test of Time. One great thing about modern or contemporary console tables is that they never go out of style. When you think about how finicky the style and fashion world can be these days, this is a pretty impressive statement. Even though some of same contemporary console tables you see in stores today were created in the 20s, when the movement of modern furniture began, they`re still the height of fashion.
While many people only see console tables as pieces that would go in the living room, they can really be spread throughout the house to offer a number of storage opportunities. You could place one console table in the entryway, as a place to put away keys, the mail, or other small items you may regularly have as you walk in and out of the house. This would be a great place for a more ornate console table. It could have one drawer to put those little items out of the way, but the rest could be a beautiful piece of wrought iron or hand tooled wood that will put visitors in awe as soon as they step in the door.
If you ultimately select one of today`s contemporary console tables having shelves, they`ll be useful for displaying ornamental items such as flowers, figurines or books or maybe even a radio or small TV. Hanging a mirror, painting or picture above one can give a room a breath of fresh air and a whole new look. Still generally created in the ever-popular rectangular shape, contemporary console tables get a considerable amount of their uniqueness from the materials used to build them. Almost every type of material used in today`s furniture making can be found in a console table. There are wicker ones for casual settings and wooden ones featuring granite or other contemporary tops for more formal settings or where added protection is needed for the table`s top.
