Console tables UK are becoming popular again. In most homes, console tables are used in entryways and can be used to store items or to add unique style elements to your home. Making the most from console tables UK is important as they could be the first thing that you see in your home. Here are some tips to make the most of console tables.


  1. Add a Mirror


Adding a mirror above a console table can make a room look larger than it really is. An interesting frame helps complete the décor of the area. Having the mirror in the entryway can give you a place to check how you look before leaving the house.


  1. Add seating


This is especially important when you are using a console table in an entryway. This makes it easy for you to take off or put on shoes and boots since you have a place to sit down. You can also use the chair to hang your jacket if you are too tired to hang it up in the closet.


  1. Make Use of the Space under the Table


Depending on the size and style of the console table, there could be a lot of unused space under it. If you want to get the most from the space, you should think about placing extra storage under the table. You could use some baskets or a small shelf to do this. You could also store seating under the table, like in the case of stools and ottomans.


  1. Think about Item Storage


When you are setting up a console table, think about what it is going to be used for. Is it going to be the place that you put the mail, your keys or other items?  If you are going to store items on your console table, you may want to think about a way to stop clutter, from taking over the table. Baskets and drawers can help hide some of the clutter and you can drop the items that you need regularly in them, so you know where they are.


  1. Move Out of the Foyer


For the longest time consoles tables UK have been mostly used in the foyer. However, not all homes have a foyer. This does not mean that you cannot have a console table in your home. You can use console tables UK in any room of your home for extra storage and for design elements.


Console tables UK have been making a comeback in the last few years. They are a great place to store items, and to add extra storage to a hallway or an entryway. Console tables UK are also making their way into other areas of our homes, like living rooms and bedrooms because they do not take up a huge amount of room.
