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.
If you've noticed, regardless of what furnishings I've mentioned, I keep coming back to console tables. This is because they've been around forever and will always be around as an important part of your home décor. Console or sofa tables can be used next to your sofa or chair as a place to keep your newspaper or TV guide so it's always handy. If you have an empty corner in your home, nothing fills it better than a console table with a candle, picture, flower, statue or other simple decorative item.
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.
The real trick, though, may be finding where to put all that stuff. Instead of plopping things on a chair or putting more things on an existing coffee or accent able consider adding console tables to your home. Console tables bump up nicely against a wall to add additional display space and storage room without adding a cluttered appearance to the living area.
Many people worry that console tables will just gather dust. This is an issue but most people use them in some way so it cuts down on the dust factor. Just think of it as another way to enhance your home.
