Console Tables and Decorating Inspirations
In general, console tables are used to provide a surface for displaying or to hold items such as keys and to act purely as decorative element in the room. Often found in entry hallway, the slender, narrow table is also popular to use in other rooms such as living room.
Decorating Console Tables Ideas
Start from any existing console table you have, even if it’s console tables with storage. You can also find console tables to buy from furniture stores or flea markets, depending on your budget. Antique stores are great to find old pieces to add elegance in the room. Simply placing beautiful one or two table lamps can always make a significant difference to the table as a whole. It’s simple and affordable too.
Alternately, you may want the table to look eye catchy. Thus, consider adding a focal piece to decorate it, such as a unique mirror or an artwork to hang on the vertical space over the table. Even so, don’t overdo it. Maintain the proportion of focal point with the table and be sure it is larger than other accent pieces. For more depth, consider varying the height of objects placed on console tables for instant visual appeal.
