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.
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.
We've talked about console tables in entryways and living rooms where they can be placed against a wall or adjacent to a couch or settee. So where else can you locate your console table? Almost any room in the house! You may have use for one in a sunroom and certainly a library or study room can benefit from console tables to hold books a computer and printer or to attractively display collectibles. Bedrooms are a perfect location as the tables are a perfect spot for pictures beauty products books lamps and of course clocks! Last but not least it's almost impossible to ignore dining rooms where a console table can be used for extra plates of food and to hold and display beverages and glasses.
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.
If the room has an uneven contour then use Sectionals which serve a great purpose. They can be placed beside the sofa to add some guest space.
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.
