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.
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.
Most people are under the impression that these tables are strictly for hallways. After all, that's usually where you see most of them when you go in other people's houses. However, these tables are probably the most versatile piece of furniture at your disposal, and can be used in practically any room of the house. Don't limit yourself to using them only in a hallway, try out other areas and rooms of the house. I've seen amazing and elegant console tables in bedrooms, bonus rooms and even kitchens.
How much will you be putting on the surface of your console table? If you want it to be able to hold a bottle of wine, in a chiller, chocolates, flowers, a lamp and other things, you are going to need a console table with a decent surface space. When looking at your options picture how much you will be able to comfortably put on the console table top.
There are several pieces that you can also use to decorate them and they include: photo frames, lamps, flower vases, trophies, figurines, art pieces, carved images... the list is endless. These and several others can be put to good use. Additionally, ensure that the items all blend in with the tables and also with the other furnishings in the room. And don't forget to be creative.
