What can I use a console table for?
Because they are narrow, console tables can fit in most hallways or small spaces that need furnishing or additional storage. Typically situated near the front door, console tables with drawers can be used to store keys, bags or accessories in a manageable and stylish way. Dress your console table with a few ornaments, a decorative key tray and even a table lamp to complete the look. The variety of shapes and styles available enable them to be used in pretty much any room; try a wooden console table for a country scheme or a glass or mirrored console table for a more contemporary design. And don't feel limited to just using a sofa table in your hallway - if you have a small bedroom or living room then a console table could offer the ideal alternative to a full size dressing table or writing desk. Traditional hallway telephone tables are smaller than console tables and offer the ideal location for a phone, but also just make a great occasional table in any room.
What style console tables are available?
Console tables come in a range of different styles and the material of the table will be the biggest factor in determining this. Mirrored or glass console tables are an eye-catching option, and can be accessorised to work with a variety of styles: traditional, contemporary and even vintage. A white gloss console table will be more flexible and works perfectly in a minimalist scheme. An oak console table will work well in a more traditional room, whereas a distressed or a painted wood finish would suit a boho or vintage vibe. Consider picking up any accent colours of the room in the accessories, such as a coloured bowl to hold your keys. Remember, there is no rulebook when it comes to creating your own personal space, so feel free to mix and match as you please.
