Selecting the Right Console Table for Your Home

May 8th, 2011

When it comes to selecting furniture and accent pieces for your home, the decision can be a difficult one to make due to such a wide variety of choices available. Choosing a console table, like many other furniture accent pieces, will also present you with many options. Having many options can be a wonderful thing, but the options can also be overwhelming as you try to narrow down the selection to affordable pieces that will work for you and your home.

Selecting the right console table for your home should be based upon the following criteria: cost, size, style, colour, and function. When people spend money on furniture accent pieces they typically are investing in these pieces and plan to have them remain in the home for an extended period of time. Since this is the case with the majority of people, it is important to select a console table that will meet your needs and one that will be visually appealing as well as fitting into the desired space without seeming too large.

A console table can often be purchased at a discounted price if you are purchasing other furniture items at the same time. Asking your furniture retailer about buying incentives for additional items may lead you to saving money on the items you purchase. It is important to measure the space where the console table will be placed as opposed to guessing by viewing the table and assuming it will fit once you get it home. If you have the measurements of the space where the console table will be placed, you will know for certain whether the piece will fit comfortably or not, and whether there will be room for people to move around it as needed.

Once you have determined the price and the size of the console table that will work for you, you then have options in colour, style, and function. Many people find that choosing a neutral tone in colour works for them because it allows the table to be more versatile if they change wall colours in the future. Selecting natural wooden shades or muted painted shades in console tables will provide you with a table that is versatile and able to be matched up nicely to a wide variety of decors. This will also allow you to move the table to other rooms in the future if needed and for it to accent the colours of the new room in an appealing manner.

Selecting a console table for function and design is also necessary to ensure that it will meet the needs of your home and family for years to come. A formally designed home will require furniture and accent pieces that are also formal, whether in contemporary glass top tables or beautifully-polished wooden Victorian designs. Many console tables will offer options for shelving beneath the main tabletop or drawers. Keeping the function needs in mind will help you to select the perfect console table once you are presented with these options.
