Five steps to styling a coffee table or console table

A coffee table, or a console table, can be really fun add-ons to any living room or outdoor area. These tables aren’t as large as dining tables, but they still provide a significant enhancement to the look, style, and feel of any environment. Keep reading to learn more about the four steps to styling a coffee table or console table in your home!

Stay in line with the rooms theme.

 

A really stunning console or coffee table should be able to match a room seamlessly. If you’re considering adding one of either, it might be a good idea to follow an existing theme or pattern. For instance, try to use the same materials or colours that are already prevalent in the room. This will make for a rich yet minimalistic look that is always elegant and stylish in pretty much any situation.

 

Favour functionality, but dont give up on aesthetics.

Coffee tables and consoles can provide a huge amount of aesthetic benefits to any room. Still, these tables should also cover a specific function since they can come in handy if you want to host people with beverages, snacks and more. Make sure there is enough room for the coffee table to actually accommodate its original functionality rather than just being something that exists for the sake of aesthetics. Among the most popular accessories, decorative trays are a popular choice. Not only are they beautiful, but they also enable users to store smaller items while keeping a semblance of an organization instead of causing a more cluttered look. In addition, trays can create a nice visual contrast with the tabletop. Some people also like to repurpose their coffee table as a drink station for parties or even as a workspace where to use laptops, notebooks and other office supplies. If that’s your case, having a tray is also a convenient way to temporarily free up your console or coffee table top space in one simple motion, rather than spending time rearranging everything back and forth.

 

Rely on accessories to spice things up

In most cases, accessories can spice things up and help you modify the look of your coffee table or console. This is a great way to bring in some extra character in a relatively small footprint that won’t necessarily cause a cluttered look or take up too much space.

 

Asymmetry is beautiful

 

Going for an asymmetrical look when styling your console or coffee table can produce amazing results. For instance, “the rule of threes” is an amazing example. This involves focusing on three items (or at least an odd number of items) to display on the tabletop. Displays arranged in odd numbers seem to favour visual appeal and engagement.

Stick to a colour palette

 

If you don’t use a determinate colour palette, you might risk creating a chaotic look on your coffee table top. You don’t want it to seem like a random collection of items scattered across the surface but rather a well-defined combination of features that really stand out visually and aesthetically. Using the same colours can be a way to go!
