Whether you’re a sleek minimalist, a bold maximalist, a romantic, or a worker bee, there are modern console tables designed for you and awaiting proper styling. However, before diving in, we’d like to offer you a pro tip: make sure you confidently know the dimensions needed for your space. It may sound simple but so many can miss the mark. For example, if you plan to use your console table for working from home, be sure the height is comfortable when seated. There should be no obstructions for your legs to feet underneath. And finally, the depth of the table’s surface should be able to accommodate a laptop and materials. No one wants an overflowing workspace!
If the space you have to work with is fairly small, then you can cheat the dimensions. Opting for clear, glass, or acrylic materials and thinner built console tables without feeling cramped or cluttered. Toss in a piece of artwork or a coordinating mirror above the table to pull the eye upward and maintain a light, lifted look.
