Of course, just like a lot of other items, they have undergone several improvements but one thing is certain: they are great pieces to grace any home with. Just in case you think their relevance is only related to aesthetics, here's a surprise. Consoles are also useful in managing space. What do I mean? These tables can effectively serve as storage units for several items in the home. I could launch into a long speech about the relevance of a console table, but I will be going off my focus. Suffice it to say that getting one of these tables is an investment you won't regret.
Console tables tend to stand on four legs that are often slender but sometimes intricately carved. The legs support a table top made from any number of quality woods, including: oak; walnut; ash; maple; or even pine. In many cases, quality console tables and are made with a solid wood covered with veneered inlays. Common features on console tables are drawers and compartments for the storage of paperwork, spare bedding, and similar items.
Perhaps the best and most popular uses of console tables are in entryways and as accent pieces in a living room. For example, when you come through the door of your home, you are generally carrying something that needs to be set down in a convenient location. This may be your briefcase, groceries, or just a set of keys that need to be placed in a spot where they won't get lost. The idea also holds true for many other items, ranging from homework to purses. For this reason, the console table may be one of the most highly utilized pieces of furniture in your collection. And if you're going to use it every day, you want it to be attractive. Fortunately, these tables come in so many styles and materials that it is easy to ensure they complement other pieces in the room. In a smaller room or entryway, you might want to match the material from which your table is constructed with nearby window sills or doors in the space where it resides, although different styles can be paired in a room, depending on paint colors and flooring.
If you've noticed, regardless of what furnishings I've mentioned, I keep coming back to console tables. This is because they've been around forever and will always be around as an important part of your home décor. Console or sofa tables can be used next to your sofa or chair as a place to keep your newspaper or TV guide so it's always handy. If you have an empty corner in your home, nothing fills it better than a console table with a candle, picture, flower, statue or other simple decorative item.
Most people are under the impression that these tables are strictly for hallways. After all, that's usually where you see most of them when you go in other people's houses. However, these tables are probably the most versatile piece of furniture at your disposal, and can be used in practically any room of the house. Don't limit yourself to using them only in a hallway, try out other areas and rooms of the house. I've seen amazing and elegant console tables in bedrooms, bonus rooms and even kitchens.
