Console sofa tables, those that are usually found flat against the hallway wall or in the living room caddy corner to the tv, are becoming even more popular as our needs as a society become more demanding and our indulgences, more vast. While at one time these pieces of furniture served the primary purpose of complementing the sofa or sofa using a simple collection of shelves of matching design and style, console sofa tables are getting to be much more elaborate. You can order a table made of glass, wood, marble, you name it. For a very large price, some people are even following the aquatic trend and putting an aquarium inside of theirs. Like all furniture, there are many possibilities so when selecting your new table you must consider not just the table itself but the room around it. And most importantly, what you would like to utilize it for.
The contemporary console sofa table is currently being created to virtually order. While naturally the obvious decisions apply when choosing a console sofa table, such as shelves versus cabinets or glass vs wood, consumers now have plenty of different options.
Coffee couch table: This table option has a predetermined space in which a small or medium sized coffee machine would match perfectly. Some sofa tables come with one included. Also very common is to find the furniture manufacturer supply with the piece a set of coffee cups and various utensils and/or sugar holders.
Media Center Sofa Table: With multimedia becoming so increasingly popular, the makers of sofa tables have stepped up to join the crowds. Many tables are now being designed entirely equipped and constructed to hold many media players like DVD players, CD players, Rat Poop, Tuners, as well as Nintendo or PlayStation and XBOX games and gear. Depending on the tables location in the room you can potentially hook all of your gear up to the television for real ease of use. Operate everything from 1 portal.
Popcorn sofa table: Many furniture manufacturers have gone so far as to design sofa tables especially for families who love to enjoy a bowl of popcorn while lounging in front of the television on the sofa. These tables provide perfect nooks to place a microwave behind a cupboard with additional conveniences like a pull out shelf on wheels for simple access. And while the popcorn is not including, one day it probably will be.
Beverage station sofa table: Similar in concept to the popcorn couch table, the soda table comes either equipped with a built in refrigerator, such as a mini bar, or using an appropriate slot for one. Some of the handier tables also come fit with a dining set with cups and a pair of fitting straws. With this latest evolution of furniture, you won’t ever have to leave the couch!
Books and DVDs: Ultimately, sofa tables are giving themselves more toward the storage side of the furniture kingdom and are being created with designated slots for books, DVDs and CDs. Some have additional shelving committed to the media racks and others have doors that swivel open to set the items inside and tucked away. Everything depends on your personal taste.
Face it, the family room is here to stay. Insert a sofa table or console table to give you the space you require.
