Gallia Console Table October 23rd, 2017 - 21:37:04
Anyone can put furniture in a room. The job of a decorator is to create atmosphere and style. Furniture is part of that, but the two most important aspects of ambiance in a room are lighting and ornamentation. Console tables add greatly to both. The hallway is the first part of the interior of a house that a visitor sees. Since first impressions count, the hallway is extremely important, it needs to set a mood. As the bridge between outside and in, the hallway needs to be warm and welcoming a console table is the ideal stage for the equipment you need.
You are going to want to get this off of the console tables so take a cloth with some warm, soapy water and clean the table up. Generally all you have to do is wipe it a little bit and whatever dust or dirt is there will come right off. Next you need to worry about the physical hardiness of your console tables. If you have tables with drawers, shelves, cabinets, etc and you are opening and shutting them regularly, chances are they are going to get a little weak over time as they loosen up.
Perhaps you put the mail on the counter or in a drawer, or tomorrows mail on the counter to remember to take it with you. This is also a good place for a flashlight, the dogs leash and any number of other items that you are going to need as you go in and out the front door. Well with all this use every time you are coming and going from the house, theres no surprise that these tables get quite abused.
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.
