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.
Another benefit of console tables is when you have your friends with kids visiting. The drawers in the console tables offer a good place to have a few games and toys tucked away so the little ones try to play with those items, instead of any of the valuables you may have on display in the room. Some console tables even have tops that are already game boards, of games like checkers, chess or backgammon, so the kids can pull the playing pieces out of the drawer and the game can immediately get underway.
Another great area for console tables is the den or family room. Console tables with two or three large drawers are a perfect place to store all those board games that the family will gather to play on game night. When you need to get control of your stuff, console tables are going to be the friend you have been looking for.
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.
