Contemporary Console Table - A Great Way To Open Up A Small Room

May 17, 2008
If you are working hard to create a contemporary décor feel in your home, you may be finding yourself running into the problem of square footage, and not having enough of it to do the job.

Generally, contemporary décor relies on large rooms with minimalist furniture to give an open space that harkens to a visit to a museum. However, if the floor plan of your home has less than cavernous space, you may be finding yourself having a tough time putting in modern furniture and creating the open area you had been hoping to have. A mirrored contemporary console table may be your answer.

As you are gathering the furniture you need for this space, don't just think about how these pieces will fill the room. Think instead about what they can do to open it up. A mirrored contemporary console table will be able to do this in a number of ways.

First, let's look at the appearance of a mirrored contemporary console table and how that can help. Just by it's name, you can tell that it is going to be covered with mirrors. Those mirrors, once put in a completed room, are going to reflect light, making the room look brighter and more open. Thus, one can help to create the illusion of a more open floor plan when you are really struggling to save as many inches as possible.

Secondly, a mirrored contemporary console table does the basic jobs of a console table. That means inside it are drawers, shelves and other storage options. The more things you put inside your mirrored contemporary console table, the more space there is in the room. While many people think the only space that counts is the physical floor space taken up by larger pieces of furniture, any clutter in a room will also make it look much smaller than it is. Putting all those cluttering items in a mirrored contemporary console table will help to make the room seem more open.

Finally is the top of a mirrored contemporary console table. Not only is that reflective surface a great place to bounce light off, to brighten the room, but also it's more space you can add to, vertically. By putting lamps, books or other items you need a space for on the top of the table, you may well have reclaimed a little floor space. Investing in a lamp to put on top of your mirrored contemporary console table instead of a floor lamp to put beside it has just saved you a little extra room.

A final touch is to situate your mirrored contemporary console table across from a large wall mirror. Really, this is a good idea beacause the effect of the two mirror sets working opposite of each other will not only create the vision of more space in the room, but also give you a very modern, artistic touch to complete this living space.
