Modern Silver Console Table FAQs

  • Where is the Best Place to Put a Console Table?

If you’re considering purchasing a modern silver console table for your home, there are several spaces where it can be incredibly useful. First is in a hallway or entryway up against a wall, to be the first piece of furniture greeting family and friends. Often coupled with mirrors or wall art for a hint of stylish sophistication, a silver console table works to visually ground the space and provide surface area without interrupting the flow of a space. Another application for console tables is in a dining room, situated near the dining room table to provide extra tabletop surface for items that don’t need to be on the main table or simple year-round storage. Lastly, modern silver console tables are great for use in a living room where their application is limitless. Station up against a wall for an out-of-the-way storage space to keep random items – ensuring your coffee table is clutter-free. Or opt to place your console table against the backside of a sofa or sectional for additional storage space for random items, as well as a display piece that adds more dimension to your room rather than just the back of an empty sofa.

  • How High Should a Console Table Be?

Modern console tables are typically a shallow, long table with a very specific purpose. The average height for a console table is 30 inches, but can range anywhere from 28” to 32” in height. When selecting one to place behind a sofa or sectional, just be sure the top of the console table is lower or equal to the height of the sofa so guests' heads don’t hit the table when they lean back and decor is not likely to tip onto the sofa.

  • How to Decorate a Silver Console Table?

When decorating a modern silver console table, it's all about layers. You want to use items of varying heights, sizes, and shapes to make for a dynamic display piece. Consider stacking books, adding flowers in a decorative vase, a pair of candleholders, or even a pair of sleek, metallic table lamps perfect for brightening an entryway or hallway. A round or rectangle mirror or piece of wall art centers the console table, while storage pieces like felt baskets or marble trays line bottom shelves to keep out-the-door essentials close by for easy access.
