It is prone to be gouged by keys and scratched by heavy items, so put a key-holder on this table instead of literally dropping keys on this table.

An Overview On Console Tables

You can walk into most unfurnished homes and have a pretty good idea where the main pieces of furniture will go. There’s always a limited amount of options when it comes to the television stand, the sofa, or the dining room table, for example. But no matter how big or small the living space, there are a wealth of uses and locations for a good console table.

By its most basic definition, a console table is a wide, thin table that’s meant to be placed against a wall. From there, the possibilities are almost endless. It’s fairly common to see a console table in a foyer or other entrance space, where its slim profile allows it to make a big first impression without taking up too much square footage. The top shelf might be used to store keys or other pocket items, while the bottom shelf (if any) can hold shoes, umbrellas or other handy items.

Others might use their console table for purely decorative purposes. They’re ideal for holding vases, books or statuettes, and you can easily rest even large paintings or framed photos on them, supported by the wall. It’s a great way to draw attention to art without having to drive a single hanging nail.

Whether you’re using them for light storage, decor or a balance of both, the tables work in most any room of the house — or even a hallway. At parties, they can serve as a mini-bar, holding glasses and carafes. In kitchen nooks, they can both store and highlight fine china or cookware.  They can be a small bookshelf in the den or a dressing table in the bedroom.

The possibilities are nearly endless, constrained only by the space you have — and of course, by the weight limitations of your console table. Consider the materials and measurements before you buy, and you’ll have a piece of furniture that’s a true “team player” in any home decorating arsenal.

DYWM Fun Fact

The term “console table” might bring to mind a glorified TV stand, but the console table didn’t get its name from anything that was typically displayed on top of it. The early versions of this stylish piece of furniture were petite, two-legged tables that could barely stand on their own. They were most often secured to the wall by way of brackets known as consoles — hence the name. You might still find some of these tiny versions for sale, but modern console tables can generally stand without additional support.

The Console Table Buying Guide

  • Console tables are a common drop-off spot for your keys if you keep them in the foyer, but that doesn’t mean they have to get scratched up in the process. Consider placing a decorative ashtray, bowl or other receptacle that can be a home for those abrasive pocket items.
  • The materials of your console table can make a big difference in what you decide to store on it, but they can be just as crucial when making design decisions. Consider your flooring when choosing a console table: Glass-top or mirrored surfaces will look great against wood floors, while glossy materials or metal frames will accent brightly colored carpeting or tile.
