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.
There are very few rules regarding the design of the table they can be round rectangular or square some have two legs and so therefore must be secured to the wall whilst others are free standing with all four legs affording you the ability to move it to various positions when needed some can even be used as sofa tables. In general these tables are thin and slender so as not to obtrude too far from the wall making them perfect for lobby's and hallways.
This is where wood console tables end up being a godsend. Because wood console tables are not only tables to put the things on that can be seen in a home but are generally made with drawers and shelves where you can tuck away things you would rather not have seen.
Armoires have been part of the bedroom furniture for centuries. They are used to store precious things and jewelry. Place the Armoire in such a way that it should be approachable.
Another great area for console tables is the den or family room. Console tables with two or three large drawers are a perfect place to store all those board games that the family will gather to play on game night.
One of the most common places to find a console table is inside lobby's and hallway's where they not only prove to be functional but can provide a focal point or point of interest. Positioned in a hallway they provide the perfect place to keep your keys or place the mail or newspapers that come through the door. You will often find a one of these tables with a mirror placed above it this is especially true of those found in hallways providing a perfect opportunity to check your appearance before leaving your home.
