2 Expert Tips To Choose A Console And Sofa Table

Console and sofa tables are great for rounding off all those little spaces that remain once your main furniture pieces are in place. Small and adaptable, these tables can add style and functionality to any room or hallway.

Here are a couple of expert tips that would help you choose the perfect console and sofa tables for your home.

What console table styles are suitable for different rooms?

Depending on which room you keep them in, different decoration styles are going to work better:

  • Looking for a way to spruce up your living room?

The living room is just the place for the traditional style of console and sofa tables. Made of richly ornamented wood with a dark wood finish, these tables are made to impress. Instead of tucking them in between a sofa and a wall, place them in plain view, with fancy table lamps to draw attention.

  • Require a handy surface in your hallway?

Modern console tables made of glass or polished chrome jive well with the limited space of a hallway. Lean tables with clean lines and simple designs are perfect for creating a small ledge for keeping keys and other miscellaneous items near the entrance.

  • Need a way to display the china in your dining room?

You need a balance of form and function for any furniture in the dining room. Console tables of the transitional style are decorative without being too ornate, with rounded corners and dark wood finish that is excellent for a classy dining area.

  • Want handy storage spaces in your bedroom?

The Bedroom is hardly the place for ostentatious decorations. The console tables you use here should reflect that design ethos. Contemporary style of tables constructed out of lighter woods or metal are best for a small dressing table or a desk by your bed.
