A hall console table is the perfect accent piece for your hallway. A hall console table works well in a back hall as a place to drop your keys and your mail when you come in for the day. A hall console table also works wonderfully in a front hallway for you to display decorative items to greet guests who are coming into your home for the first time. When buying a hall console table, think carefully about the different features of the table as well as its design to make sure you get the best hallway table for your home.
The first thing to think about when selecting hall tables is the features the table has. Mainly, this means considering whether you want or need storage on the console furniture. Most people find it convenient to be able to store gloves, scarves, mail, keys or hats in a hall table - but you may not want these things necessarily right on top of the table and creating clutter. Hall console tables that have drawers or doors with cabinets can both work wonderfully to allow you to keep your clutter under control while still having it easily accessible at the door. This turns your furniture hall table into something useful as well as pretty.
Style and design
Style and design are often just as important as function when it comes to buying console tables for sale, since the hallway console table is going to often be the first thing people see in your home. You should think about what goes with your style and tastes. Oak console tables can be durable and can be painted or stained, depending on whether you want to go for a traditional or a country look, although oak painted furniture still will typically show its grain. A white console table can lend a light, casual or airy vibe while an oak hall table might be more traditional. An oak pedestal table in the center of the room is going to be the most formal, while small console tables can come in almost any style and fit in any hallway depending on what kind you buy.
