When most of use think of a console table they imagine a piece of furniture that is to be used in a hallway as a way of welcoming us into the home in style. Many people are coming to realize the flexibility of this table and how it can be put into use in other rooms in the house. A console table may also be used to divide two open areas in the home, and this works best in lofts and very modern apartments where a tall mirrored or glass console table will accentuate the contemporary design without weighing the room down.
So, if you have console tables in your home, make sure they are on a good maintenance schedule that will keep them working for you in the months and years to come. Here are some of the things you should consider. First and foremost you want to keep your tables clean. After all if this is what you are coming in the door to, dont you want it to be attractive? Start by dusting the surface. Luckily console tables dont tend to gather too much dust because they are always being used and your activity around the console tables keeps the dust from settling.
Console tables are a very busy piece of furniture in most homes. While not every home has a console table, those that start to appreciate the use of console tables eventually wonder how they ever lived without them. Consider the foyer in your home. As soon as you walk in the first thing you see is one of those console tables sitting there waiting to greet you. This is a place where your keys can be put down.
The table can be used to add light and ornamentation if your room is largely symmetrical, a pair of lamps and a small vase of flowers is ideal if not, try arranging the table top in an L shape, with a tall striking lamp as the upright, some small ornaments or framed photographs forming the base. Where you need every ounce of space, a narrow console table, positioned behind a sofa, can also be used as a desk choose one with a drawer for pens and papers, and since console tables are often intricate, ornamental pieces, you may choose to use one, especially if it has some storage, as a bedroom vanity.
