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.
There are many types of console tables and they also come in every imaginable size, shape, color and material. Each one is designed for similar but different purposes so make sure that you know what you want to use it for before deciding which one to buy.
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.
Perhaps you want to add a little Asian allure in your living room with a detailed, black, chest type console table in a classic Chinese design. Make a statement with the Mediterranean flair of a large aged ivory chest type console table with black marble top. Or keep it clean, simple and modern with a black metal table with glass shelves. Any console table you choose will give you the opportunity to display a few favorite photos; a vase of fresh blooms or perhaps a bit of your favorite collections of bits and baubles in old apothecary jars.
Hallways are another great place to display and use a console table, especially one with multiple storage compartments and drawers. Not requiring any chair, these unobtrusive accent tables help break up a large blank space in the walls found in most hallways while also providing additional storage. Like the foyer area, hallways are another area in the home where lighting may be inadequate and quality made console tables are a great place for a lamp.
