Yolette Console Table November 14th, 2017 - 15:50:11
The warmth of a solid wood console table is ideal, and since most hallways are long and narrow, the profile of a console fits well. If possible, place it opposite the entrance, add two matching lamps and some lovely flowers, or an arrangement of green plants. Since most hallways are quite dark, silk plants or flowers would probably be best. To increase the available light, hang a mirror above the console, it will reflect the light from the lamps. The final touch is to add a light sensor switch or timer, so you can be sure the lamps are on when they are needed.
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.
All you need is a screwdriver to fix this, as well as a little patience. Take the screwdriver and move around to all the joints, tightening up all the screws. Check for anything that seems to be getting a little wobbly or weak and fix it up. This way you can keep these console tables from taking any real damage. Unfortunately many people ignore problems with the hardware on their tables until its too late.
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.
