Console Tables are generally placed against the wall and are versatile. Placing a Console table near the sofa will help occupants to reach out easily.
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.
In today's home there never seems to be enough space to put stuff. If you think about it it's amazing how much more square footage today's homes have yet we seem to still be able to fill all that space up as soon as we get it. We are collectors by nature and it seems many believe that the more stuff they have the better they are going in the game of life.
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.
Generally bedrooms are connected with bathrooms. To avoid shower sounds and water splashes place the bed perpendicular to the bathroom's entrance.
Console tables are so diverse and available in such a wide selection of designs sizes colors and shapes that it can sometimes be difficult to define the difference between a console table and a sofa table. For those of you who are unsure exactly what they are the definition is really rather vague they are defined as small tables often narrow in shape supported by either two or four legs leaving the decision of whether the table you are looking at is a sofa table or a console table.
