Construction is also very important when choosing a console table, although it may be less important than for other pieces of furniture in your home. For this reason, a ready to assemble piece may be a good option to save a little money, but there are a few things to look for when purchasing a ready to assemble piece. Remember that a piece of furniture that was assembled in a factory will never be as strong as one that you assemble at home, simply because you don't have the strength that machines have when putting furniture together. However, pieces that have the proper type of joints can be glued together with epoxy to make them last forever. Furniture that uses small dowels to joint two pieces of wood together is a great example because you could just use epoxy on both ends of the dowels to make the joints very strong.
The beckoning entrance, the extra storage in the hall, the only way to cover up that unsightly radiator; there is only one type of table that fits all of these descriptions and more, a console table. Sleek and rectangular, half moon and feminine, full of drawers or just a table, console tables have many shapes, sizes and configurations to fit your needs and tastes.
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.
For an added touch, you can have romantic music playing as you enter the room with a remote to be able to turn that down as the TV comes on. If things go well through the evening, you can keep your final surprise in the pocket drawer that is in the console table. It's a perfect place to hide that ring for an unforgettable proposal.
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.
