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.
The arrangement of the furniture in home will influence the nature of décor. It also determines accessibility and functionality of furniture piece. Planning ahead can escape from untidy arrangements. Though the arrangement varies from room to room but there are a few points which are common to all rooms. I am using this space to share my ideas on furniture arrangement which might be helpful for everyone.
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.
Cracking. One way to make wood console tables look old is to give them a cracked finish. Think about the look of an old table pulled out of a farm house after generations. The paint is starting to crack and break away from the surface. It used to be it took a lot of work to create this look but not anymore. There are 'crackle paints' or crackle additives to add to paint that will make this finish happen very easily. Often all you have to do is apply 1-2 coats and you will have created an antique look with ease.
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.
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.
