A console table is not quite a necessity when compared to a dining table or coffee table. However, they’re very functional, especially for entryways.
What is a console table?
A console table, also known as a sofa table, is a long and narrow piece of furniture. It usually measures 30-36 inches long and only 12 inches or less in width.
Thanks to their short width, console tables are great for small and tight spaces. Console tables are mostly placed at the entryway by the door, lined up against the back of the couch and even in the hallway. Console tables are great for much-needed surface space to place keys, bags, hats, scarves and various other items.
When on the search for a console table, there are a few factors to look at beforehand. The first thing to do is measure the area where the table will be placed. You wouldn’t want to order or purchase a console table and it ends up being too small or too big for your space.
Next, you need to have an idea of the style of console table that would best suit your living area as well as the purpose of the table. Does it need drawers and shelves to help organize a bit? Is it going to be a statement piece that ties in the whole room?
Once you have these few factors in mind, you can start looking for a console table that’ll fit your home. It is definitely hard to find great options for a console table, so here are the 7 best console tables that we recommend.
