Long Entryway Table
Console Table – For Hall Or Lounge
If you are looking for a console table for your home its important to take into consideration in which room it will be placed and how it will be positioned to ensure you get the correct design for your needs.
An Entryway or Hall Console Table
If you select a design with two legs that are more for decoration than support, then be sure the brackets are securely mounted to the wall. This may require some heavy-duty installation with a drill and plugs for screws that may be needed to withstand weight in a cement or brick wall.
Do not mount your table without checking what will be required to keep it sturdy. It may end up being a problem, and the last thing you want at the entrance of your house is a piece of furniture that’s an eyesore or a troublemaker.
Wood or Glass Console Table for Sofa
If your furniture is for placing behind a sofa then you must select one that has four legs. What will differentiate this table from other end tables or accent pieces will be two things.
It should be almost the length of your sofa, so it will be long as tables go, and it should be very narrow so as to flow with the sofa and not take up too much floor space, because it is likely the console table will be placed behind a sofa that is not pressed into a wall but left in the middle of the room or somewhere on an angle.
The sofa and the console table should flow as one. You should be able to reach behind you and touch the top of the table when seated on the sofa. A glass model may work well if your sofa is a modern piece upholstered in light cotton or made of leather or imitation leather. If your sofa is more traditional or has wood arms and legs, you should match your furniture to the sofa and select an oak or wood console table that blends well.
