Do you need extra space to get ready for a buffet? Maybe you'd like to put the desserts all in one place, lay out the plates, napkins and utensils off the buffet table, designate a place for guests to leave cards and gifts, or set up the bar for the party. Put your console table to work.
Although wood gives a room a rich look, you don't want the wood to be too dark in color as this will make the room appear smaller. If you have wood flooring, rugs are a great accent that take away some of the darkness and bring color to the room as well as make it more inviting. Console tables can then be the same color as the flooring, or a lighter color. You may want just one table for an accent. If you're using them for a purpose, such as media storage, you can get a larger one. Another idea is to get tables with glass tops. These look very elegant, while complementing the wood on the tables. These may not be appropriate, however, if you have young children.
We've talked about console tables in entryways and living rooms, where they can be placed against a wall or adjacent to a couch or settee. So where else can you locate your console table? Almost any room in the house! You may have use for one in a sunroom, and certainly a library or study room can benefit from console tables to hold books, a computer and printer, or to attractively display collectibles. Bedrooms are a perfect location, as the tables are a perfect spot for pictures, beauty products, books, lamps, and of course, clocks! Last but not least, it's almost impossible to ignore dining rooms, where a console table can be used for extra plates of food and to hold and display beverages and glasses.
If things go well through the evening, you can keep your final surprise in the pocket drawer that is in the console table. It's a perfect place to hide that ring for an unforgettable proposal.
If you are just looking a table to place behind your sofa for decorative purposes then you are looking to get a sofa console table. This is again usually rectangular shaped and long. In this case, you can again place some pictures of your family and friends on top or anything else that you thing would look nice. What I think you should be careful of though here is that you don't place any tall or fragile objects on such a table as this would be risky. It is not rare that someone stretches while sitting in the sofa so this could result in him pushing something of the table and I bet you wouldn't want your mother's expensive vase breaking in pieces. Go with short objects such as picture frames. If you definitely want to have something tall on it then at least make sure that it is heavy enough so that it has a better balance.
