You may be asking yourself why not just use any old table to fill the void? After all, you can put whatever you want on a tabletop, right? Well, this is true, but console tables have many more uses in the foyer. Many console tables have drawers or shelves below the tabletop. These are places to keep things you need. If you go out at night a lot, you may want to have a flashlight in that drawer. If you have a lot of kids coming and going, the shelves could be a great place to put their sports bag or even their books, so they don`t forget first thing in the morning.
Display Cases. Contemporary console tables usually are totally open or have glass doors. These can serve many purposes. Shelves can be great for china, photographs, books and travel souvenirs. Modern sideboards that have glass doors have the advantage of being dust free and easy to keep clean, though you`ll want to wipe down the glass every now and then. Some contemporary sideboards have no glass, which has the advantage of making the contents easy to view and access. Choose a display style that fits your decoration.
Perhaps one of the best reasons to have console tables in your living room is to clean up quick for unexpected company. Imagine you get five minutes warning that someone is coming over. You want the place to look nice, but this is the family living room and there are books, magazines, remotes and other small items all over the place. These items can be quickly tucked away in the console tables, hidden from the view of your guests, who will think you keep a spotless home, and later brought back out for everyone to use.
Console Tables - Ideal For Cleaning Up Clutter. In today`s home there never seems to be enough space to put stuff. If you think about it, it`s amazing how much more square footage today`s homes have, yet we seem to still be able to fill all that space up as soon as we get it. We are collectors by nature and it seems many believe that the more stuff they have the better they are going in the game of life.
