Console tables are a great addition to your home.  They are versatile and fit nicely in a foyer or behind the sofa, as well as other areas of the home.  Console tables come in a variety of styles that can either fit unobtrusively into a spot or become a standout piece in the room.  Decorating the console table is easy and can add great interest and function to a space.

Console tables can be a functional piece in the foyer.  They can work as a central spot for storing mail, keys and other items that are used daily.  By inserting decorative baskets underneath or displaying trays and decorative containers on the table, you can organize items and keep everything looking tidy and stylish.

Console tables can serve as a distinctive statement piece in the foyer as well.  Since the foyer is the place where first impressions of your home are formed, a well-placed table can serve as the anchor piece for beautiful decorative items.  Place a mirror or framed artwork above the table for even more impact.

Unique styles can be found for whatever purpose you have in mind, be it a statement piece in the foyer or a functional table for behind the sofa.  A piece that stands out doesn’t need much accessorizing.  Something simple on top, perhaps a lamp, works well.

Console tables are indispensable behind the sofa.  They can function as lamp tables, storage alternatives and to separate space in an open concept home.  Use them behind the sofa anywhere in the room, against a wall or placed centrally in the room.  You can have floor outlets installed underneath the table to plug in lamps.

The console table isn’t just for the foyer and the living room.  By the window, the console table provides a functional space for a pair of chairs at each side.  In this way, the table is the centerpiece and can be decorated with favorite pieces or lamps.  In the dining room, a console table functions as extra serving space.
