THE MANY WAYS TO USE A CONSOLE TABLE
Keep your options open and play around.
Entryway or hallway:
Couple your console table with a mirror to add light and a touch of sophistication. If you want your visitor’s eyes to get stuck, use such tables to gain attention.
A decorative console table works well here. Dress it up like a side table, and create an interesting visual vignette with curios. Lamps and console tables go hand-in-glove. It is best to set a symmetry to maintain balance in your room with the help of such lights.
Perched next to the dining table, it functions as a sideboard of sorts. Place food and crockery on it or convert the table into an impromptu bar when you have guests over. Any table that comes with shelves or drawers would be ideal for such a dining room. Add drawer dividers to store serve-ware and cutlery.
Empty tables are of no use. To make it’s look more interesting and catchy, you need to add indoor plants and baskets under the console tables, to make it an elegant space to store linen. Pair it with a mirror, and it turns into a dresser.
