The 5 Ideas 

Entryway Clutter Control

 Placing a console table near your entryway provides a designated space to store keys, mail, and other small items that tend to accumulate. Add decorative baskets or trays to hold these items, preventing them from cluttering your countertops or getting lost.

Display & Decor 

Another common use for console tables is to use them as a display area for decorative items, family photos, or artwork. By organizing these items on the table's surface, you can add a personal touch to your space while keeping it neat and visually appealing. For tips on how to decorate a console table, click here.

Home Office Setup

Transform a console table into a compact home office setup. If the table is deep enough, place a laptop or desktop computer on the surface, add a chair, and use the table's drawers or shelves to store office supplies like pens, paper, and notebooks. This setup is especially useful if you're short on space but need a functional workspace. Console tables are typically less expensive than office desks as well.

Dining Room Ideas 

In the dining room, a console table can function as a buffet during meals or gatherings. Use it to store tableware, napkins, and serving dishes, creating an organized and easily accessible space for meal preparation and entertaining, almost like a side table.

Entertainment Room

 In a living room or entertainment area, a console table can be used to organize media components like DVD players, game consoles, and cable boxes. With some creative use of cable organizers and wire holders, a console table can be a stylish solution for your entertainment setup.


Remember, when choosing a console table, consider its size, design, and features to ensure it complements your home's style and effectively addresses your specific organization needs. And of course, don’t forget to check out Rustlewood’s top rated narrow console table here!
