Ofelia Macaria Console Table March 02nd, 2018 - 08:53:18
Speaking of material console tables come in some of the most varied choices of any type of table. The majority of course are wood: oak maple walnut and cherry are popular although the material can be stained or distressed to change the look of the piece. Glass tabletops mixed with wood bases are an attractive way to add dimension and variety to the design and are also helpful for intermingling styles within a room. Glass is also uniquely suited to reflecting candlelight or enhancing the sparkle of your glassware.
Ottomans are generally placed in front of chairs and recliners. There should be space coordination between Recliner and Ottoman. For space constrained environments choose an Ottoman which can also be used as a Coffee table.
Generally the sofa or chair is placed pointing towards a TV. The reference height and the profile of the household should be taken into consideration. Make sure that the seating spot should be accessible from any part of the room.
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.
Next beat up the table. Yes you read that right. There is no old country table that is in perfect condition which means you need to use the file or sandpaper to rough up the edges. If you want it to look well used you can use the hammer to make a few dings.
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.
