If you have a dining room that's too small to accommodate a sideboard, china cabinet, or buffet, add a console table. It's smaller than traditional dining room furniture, but if it's got a few drawers you can store napkins, serving utensils, candles, and bar accessories. If it's got a few shelves, you can use it to display some of your favorite serving pieces. Add a small wine rack, a basket or box holding a corkscrew or foil cutter, and crystal stemware, you've can create a small wine bar.
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.
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.
