While many people only see console tables as pieces that would go in the living room, they can really be spread throughout the house to offer a number of storage opportunities. You could place one console table in the entryway, as a place to put away keys, the mail, or other small items you may regularly have as you walk in and out of the house. This would be a great place for a more ornate console table. It could have one drawer to put those little items out of the way, but the rest could be a beautiful piece of wrought iron or hand tooled wood that will put visitors in awe as soon as they step in the door.
In addition to those materials and finishes, contemporary console tables can also be made from a slew of others finished in many different ways as well. Some of the other options include woods like maple, cedar, and alder along with metals like wrought iron and regular iron while other finishing options are a simple lacquer applied to the wood or hand painted colors and those for the metal might be hand rubbed or polished.
The obvious pieces of furniture you are going to likely get for the living room are a sofa, possibly a loveseat and other chairs and seating options for your guests. Then you will likely get a coffee table, and many people also want matching end tables. But this is where you may want to put on the brakes. While end tables are nice, if you are going to do a lot of entertaining in this room, you should probably think of furniture pieces that will help you do that. Sure, end tables will give you a place to put a drink or two, but console tables can offer a lot more. In addition to adding countertop space, console tables can also offer a lot of storage space to put things you will need to have close at hand when you are entertaining, such as coasters for those drinks that are about to be set down.
When first creating your living room design, you need to map out the space on paper. Make sure to mark where there are doorways coming into the room, or where there are stairwells, fireplaces, windows and other things that may get in the way of some furniture pieces. Measure the open spaces between all of these obstructions, and then you can begin your search for the best pieces of furniture.
