Console tables can transform a hallway, provide useful storage in a room or even become a platform for featuring artwork. That’s why we are here to make sure you find the perfect console table that caters to your particular needs. Here is your guide to selecting the perfect console table and things you should keep in mind:
When shopping for furniture, we’re looking for pieces that will stand the test of time. Invest in high quality and look for options like solid wood, metal,/marble, or a combination of materials that offer durability and visual appeal. Look for fine craftsmanship, such as smooth and seamless joints, precise cuts, and attention to detail in the construction.
Consider the style and ambiance you want to create, whether it's a modern, minimalist look or a more traditional aesthetic. Metal console tables can enhance a space by adding a touch of modernity, sleekness, and elegance while providing a functional surface for display or storage. Whilst Oak has a natural, warm, and timeless beauty that can fit into various interior styles, from traditional to contemporary. It adds a touch of classic elegance to any space and can be easily matched with different décor themes.
While aesthetics play a significant role, don't overlook the functionality of the console table. Consider your specific needs, whether it's displaying decorative items, providing storage, or serving as a workspace. If you're unsure, imagine what items you will have on the table itself, this can help you visualise which option might be best for you. If you're wanting to store mail, sunglasses, dog leads, keys, wallet, or anything that you need to take with you when leaving the home, opt for consoles with storage available. However, if you’re looking to use the console table to display your favorite books or home décor, in this case, storage is not critical.
Maintain balance and harmony in your decor by carefully considering the size of the console table. Choose a size that complements the overall design and doesn't overwhelm the area. For most hallways, a 150cm or 160cm console is suitable for the entry, while smaller entries can opt for our smaller sizes ranging from 90cm to 110cm. However, it's crucial to not only consider the width but also the depth of the console, especially in narrow entries, where a depth of less than 40cm is recommended to avoid obstructing floor traffic.
