Playing the perfect supporting role to the main furniture in the living room is the console table, which if styled rightly, can be the focal point of your home. This humble piece of furniture is truly a versatile one and can be used in many ways around the house. Even though the console table has been around for a long time, it has gained immense popularity in recent times owing to its multi-functionality and classic appearance. And a slightly glamorous version of the traditional wooden console table is a glass console table about which we will discuss in detail in this article.
At Choice Furniture, we have glass hall tables to match every room and space. But before you delve further into the various types of console tables, have you decided where you will place your hall table? Remember when we said, console tables are highly versatile in nature? Here are few spaces where you can install your console table:
In your living room: The first and foremost space that comes to our mind and maybe yours too, is the living area. In the living room, you can install your console table on the wall facing your sofa. Doing so will create a beautiful symmetry. Additionally you can style it up (we will discuss styling tips later in the article) or use it as a serving table for snacks, drinks and desserts when you have guests over.
In your living room, as a TV table: A great way to utilize your console table’s functionality is by using it as a TV set. You can place your TV on top of the table or install it on the wall and style up the table with flowers, books and idols. Additionally if you have a storage space or racks in your console table, you can display family photographs, indoor plants, DVDs, CDs, etc on them.
In the entryway: Installing your console tale in the entryway can create a strong focal point and can be the first impression for guests stepping in your home as it is the first thing they see.
In your living room behind your sofa: Now this too has multiple uses. First, you can use it as a study and second, it can be used as a serving table when you are hosting.
In your bedroom, as your dressing table: Who would have thought of that? Well, a console table can accomplish this feat as well. Convert your simple glass console table into a stylish dressing table by hanging a mirror above it and displaying your beauty and makeup products on the table.
Your very personal home bar!: Last but not the least, your console table can double up as a mini bar too. Stack up your favorite drinks and get ready to serve them to your guests!

Styling your glass console table can be the easiest yet the trickiest thing to do. Here are some tips that will never fail you:
- Use an anchor. Hang a mirror or an artwork in the center of the table to create a balance.
- If you own a Small Glass Hall Table, add height to it by placing a tall table lamp or a tall flower vase.
- Don’t forget to style under the table. Place a pair of ottoman or maybe a pretty leafy indoor plant to brighten up the space. This works great especially if you have a Glass Console Table Narrow.
- Avoid cluttering the table top, especially if styling a glass console table small
As mentioned in all our other articles on glass furniture, a glass console table needs to be cared for more regularly than other metal or wooden tables. Here are some tips for you:
- Don’t place your table under direct sunlight, heat or humidity, as it can damage the glass top faster.
- If using the console table as a serving table, always use table linens and coaster to place food or drinks.
- Don’t let spills stagnate. Clean immediately. Clean damp cloth.
- Always use a microfiber cloth that doesn’t shed lint.
- Use a cleaner that is meant for your table.
- Don’t place heavy objects on your table suddenly.
- Avoid dragging any object on the surface to prevent scratches.
- Avoid using alcohol as cleaners.
