John Console Tables May 16th, 2018 - 02:33:53
The days when the foyer was just a room to leave your umbrella, shoes or coat before you make your way into the rest of your home are over. Now you can turn the foyer into a real entryway into your home, a place that sets the scene and lets everyone get a taste of what you have in store for them.
Especially useful in a hallway, dining room, family room or den, contemporary console tables not only look good but can be an extra place for storage as well. And who ever has enough storage? Those featuring drawers are perfect for hiding your extra remote controls, coasters, or magazines or are a handy place to put picture albums you want to have available for easy access when friends and family drop by.
As you undertake the purchase of console tables to help with your storage problems, you need to make a note of what you need before you buy. How much storage do you really need console tables to provide? Do you have minor to moderate storage needs? You may want to look at tables that are more ornate but only have a little storage area, like one long drawer. But if you realize you have a lot of things you need to find a place to put away, you should look for more practical console tables with more drawers or shelving options you can use to get control of your clutter.
To start with though, contemporary console tables will have one pretty basic design with simple lines, giving the furnishing a very sleek appearance. Sometimes there will be small design elements like softer lines or curves, but that is just every now and again. The different materials and finishes that come into play are what really put the look of contemporary console tables over the top. For example, you can get one that is made using both glass and metal with a base crafted from steel that has a chrome finish supporting a slightly black tinted table top. Or, you could purchase one that is crafted from pine that has a rich, black finish with a slight semi-glass appearance.
