To confuse the matter further, it is plausible for all sofa tables to be used as a console table, although the dimensions may not suit as well. However, it is not possible for every table to be a sofa table, primarily due to the option of purchasing a two legged table, which remains stationary and secured to the wall. One of the most common places to find console tables are in hotels as they are often used to furnish the lobby's and hallways, often with a decorative piece placed on top to create a more ambient setting.
After that you want to figure out the height of console table you are looking for. These tables are available in all different heights. If you plan to place the table behind your sofa, you do not want it to come up higher than the back of your sofa. But if you are going to put it against a wall in a hall way, height may not be that big of a consideration. After that, think about what style suits you. There are so many different styles to choose from. Do the simple lines of Mission styled or Shaker furniture appeal to your style? Or, perhaps you prefer a more modern style to your furnishings?
The design is also very important because of what you intend to use it for. Some people want very simple console tables that do not have any shelves or drawers in them. They may have only one surface area on top to set things on. These kinds of tables are typically decorative in nature, although they may be used to place small things on, like the day's mail. Just make sure that you do not need any actual storage in the table if you are considering getting one that does not have drawers or shelves. If you purchase one with shelves, you might even consider getting some baskets that slide right into those shelves. The baskets can be used for all sorts of things, like knitting or stashing away some small children's toys. They are wonderful because you can pull them out and take them with you to another part of the house while still enjoying the ability to hide things in them when company comes over.
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.
While many people only see console tables as pieces that would go in the living room, they can really be spread throughout the house to offer a number of storage opportunities. You could place one console table in the entryway, as a place to put away keys, the mail, or other small items you may regularly have as you walk in and out of the house. This would be a great place for a more ornate console table. It could have one drawer to put those little items out of the way, but the rest could be a beautiful piece of wrought iron or hand tooled wood that will put visitors in awe as soon as they step in the door.
