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.
Start with unfinished wood console tables or one that you can take the current paint off of. If the table has any sort of finish you will need to use a stripping agent to remove that before moving forward with this project.
Ottomans are generally placed in front of chairs and recliners. There should be space coordination between Recliner and Ottoman. For space constrained environments choose an Ottoman which can also be used as a Coffee table.
Decorating a console table depends on two factors - decor theme of your home and the placement. When it comes to a decor theme you need to be very clear about the same. Before you start the process of placing home decor items on a table ensure that you have chalked out a rough plan. The best way to go about it is by jotting down what all needs to be placed on a table. If the table is placed in a foyer or a hallway then it will be decked up in a manner to facilitate easy access to day-to-day items. When placed in a living or a dining room the console table is used for placement of decor items or decanters.
