Having console tables in the entry way to your home is like having a good friend waiting to help you out when you come in and out of the house. They are there to hold the mail, the keys, the dog's leash and collar and anything else that you may need as you walk in and out of the door. Make sure to take care of that friend by putting your console tables on a regular maintenance schedule.
Usually tall and narrow sofa or console tables are the perfect way to spruce up a boring entry way. Instead of welcoming guests with a blank wall try a delicate table laden with a favorite photo and candles as well as a vase of fresh garden blooms. Or fill that empty space behind the sofa with an elegant piece perfect for resting a beverage or a book. From ornately carved solid wood pieces to scrolling metal works of art with clean, clear glass resting on top there are many options in console table style to suit your needs.
Next you need to worry about the physical hardiness of your console tables. If you have tables with drawers, shelves, cabinets, etc and you are opening and shutting them regularly, chances are they are going to get a little weak over time as they loosen up. All you need is a screwdriver to fix this, as well as a little patience. Take the screwdriver and move around to all the joints, tightening up all the screws. Check for anything that seems to be getting a little wobbly or weak and fix it up. This way you can keep these console tables from taking any real damage.
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.
If you want to use your table for storage, you look for one that has drawers and shelves. Some console tables come with as many as 4 shelves which can be used to store books and other decorations. You may find some tables with drawers as well. These are excellent places to store remote controls, cell phones, TV guides, etc. If you find yourself running out of places to put things in your home, you should get a this table with these storing options.
