Exploring the Usage of Console Tables in the Living Room

  • Entryway Focal Point: Place a console table in the entryway to create a welcoming first impression. Use it to display decorative items like vases, mirrors, or artwork while providing a surface for keys and mail.
  • Behind the Sofa: Position a console table behind the sofa to define the seating area. It can hold lamps, books, or other essentials, adding depth and visual interest to the room.
  • Media Console: Use a console table as a media stand to hold a TV, media player, or gaming console. Choose a design with shelves or drawers for additional storage.

Diverse Types, Styles, and Materials

  • Large Console Tables: Ideal for spacious living rooms, large console tables offer ample surface area and storage options. They can serve as statement pieces and anchor the room's decor.
  • Small Console Tables: Perfect for compact spaces or narrow hallways, small console tables provide functional display surfaces without taking up too much space.
  • Rectangular Console Tables: These are the most popular kind and work nicely behind couches and against walls. They provide stylistic and placement diversity.
  • Styles: Choose from modern console tables featuring sleek lines and minimalist designs, natural styles with wood finishes, contemporary designs with metal accents, or rustic pieces with distressed finishes.
  • Materials: Console tables can be crafted from various materials including oak for a classic look, glass top for a modern vibe, marble-top for a touch of luxury, or metal for an industrial aesthetic.

How to Style a Console Table

  • Balance Height and Depth: Place taller items like lamps or vases at the back and shorter items like books or decorative objects in front to create depth.
  • Add Decorative Accents: Incorporate decorative items such as candles, plants, or artwork to add personality and visual interest.
  • Create Symmetry or Asymmetry: Arrange items symmetrically for a formal look or asymmetrically for a casual, eclectic vibe.
  • Utilize Storage: Choose a console table with drawers or shelves to keep clutter hidden while showcasing decorative items on top.
  • Reflective Surfaces: Place a mirror above the console table to reflect light and create the illusion of a larger space.


Q. Where would be the ideal spot for a console table?
A. Hallways, entryways, and even the area behind a sofa in a living room are ideal places for console tables. Thanks to our assortment of sizes and designs, any room in your house may have the ideal match. To match the rest of your design, select from a range of materials and finishes, such as wood and metal. Visit Ellis Home Interiors today to locate the ideal console table for your room.
Q. Should a console table be lower than the couch?
A. A console table should ideally be at the same height as the back of the sofa or couch it is positioned behind, or slightly lower. This provides for a more unified and balanced look in the space and guarantees that the table doesn't loom over the seating area. Ultimately, though, the height of the console table will rely on a variety of factors, including personal taste and the general design and arrangement of the room. There is no hard and fast rule.
