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.
Console tables are a very busy piece of furniture in most homes. While not every home has a console table, those that start to appreciate the use of console tables eventually wonder how they ever lived without them. Consider the foyer in your home. As soon as you walk in the first thing you see is one of those console tables sitting there waiting to greet you. This is a place where your keys can be put down. Perhaps you put the mail on the counter or in a drawer, or tomorrows mail on the counter to remember to take it with you. This is also a good place for a flashlight, the dog's leash and any number of other items that you are going to need as you go in and out the front door.
Console tables in your foyer do not need to be strictly decorative additions to the space. When you step in the front door, the console table is a logical place to drop your keys, the mail, and whatever else is in your hands. If you find one with drawers or a storage base, you can tuck away the children's gloves or the dog's leash. When it's outfitted with a mirror, it's a perfect place to take a glance at your hair or makeup before you walk out the door.
Deciding what kind of console table to get can be a tricky task. A console table is a piece of furniture usually used for decorative purposes but it can also be practical as a place to empty your pockets when you return home from work.
There are appropriate console tables for every use. You just need to put enough time and effort in finding the best one for each case. A particular console table I have found to be very useful is a hallway console table. On such a table you can place anything you want and it can really make a difference for your "boring" hallway. You could place picture frames, a beautiful alarm clock or anything else you think would look good or make your life a little easier.
