What is a console table, exactly? Shape provides a clue here. These tables are typically rectangles, but it can have a semicircle or half-oval top. It's longer than an accent table or an end table, narrower than a sideboard or kitchen counter, and taller than a kitchen table. You'd never look at a console table and think, "Will we be eating dinner here?"
You should not sacrifice quality for price, which is why you need to know what to watch out for in your pursuit of a cheap console. Be sure to check out the material from which the table is made. Is it durable? How easy would the maintenance be? Are there any defects such as dents on it? These and other similar questions are pertinent when purchasing your console table. Remember, getting a cheap console table is not just about the purchase price, but also the cost of maintenance. If you get a very cheap table which cannot serve its purpose well and requires you spending additional money on repairs, what's the point?
Now that you have decided what type and what shape of console table you want you can look at the finer details such as color and accents. It is easy to add a punch of refreshing color and style to a tired, dim room. Add some flair with a striped table in the living room behind your sofa. Or try some Asian allure with a black and red hand painted table in the hall. Deciding on the color and style is the fun part because you can change the whole mood of the room with one little table.
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 are looking for a way to dress up an empty space in your hallway or in your living room, console tables might be exactly what you need.
