How To Add A Console Table In Your House

A console table is a piece of furniture that is suitable for rooms of any style. It is often used as a decorative surface for stylish items like lamps or vases, or as an extra storage option. Read on to get inspired on where to put your console table around the house and how to decorate it.


1. Place your console table in the entryway

One of the most common places to put a console table is by the entry door of your house. It offers a place for your keys, bags, and extra blankets for your guests. When decorated, the console table greets your visitors and gives them a first impression of your style. Decorate the tabletop with a lamp, books, or scented candles. You can hang a wall mirror, a wall coat rack, or create a gallery wall above the console table to provide a homier feeling.


2. Place your console table behind the sofa

A console table placed against the back of a long sofa can fill dead space and keeps items easily attainable – especially for people sitting in the center of the sofa. The console table can serve as a visual separator between the sitting area and other parts of an open floor plan. You can add a table lamp, plants, books, cookie jar, and a tea box on top of your console table.


3. Use your console table as a bar cart
