A console doesn’t necessarily need to be a part of your tv space, it can be a part of your home in general. A flawless, well-decorated console can become the highlight of any room if it is decorated properly. If you have an empty console or a space that needs to be decorated with a little something extra, here are some creative ways to decorate your console and make the most of it.
Bits of Red
What better color to paint your console, then red. A color that makes a bold statement, on its own yet makes a room come to life when it is paired with other bold hues. Think of it as the perfect hue to make a room come to life on its own and apart. Furthermore, you can say this color is the ultimate contrasting color.
Add Gold Accents
If your console needs a warming touch, adding gold accents is the way to go. Gold is perfect as it warms up any room while still adding personality and giving it that sleek touch. There is a luxurious touch that comes from having gold accents. Add a gold lamp to make the room feel as sleek and charming as possible.
To make a statement, you don’t need to have a bold console. You can have a simple console and make the boldest statement. To do just that you want to add natural materials to your console. Doing so will create a bold picture without overbearing the room.
Add a Wallpaper
When in doubt, add a wallpaper. If you have a console you already like yet don’t know what to do to help it become a statement in the room, add a wallpaper on the wall your console rests on. Doing so enhances the appeal of the console without destroying the décor you have displayed. The idea is to make that area a statement not the console itself per se.
Less is More
Sometimes you don’t want to over decorate your console. That is where having less décor comes into play. You want to display your favorite bits that do not take up too much room on the console. Furthermore, you want to leave some open space, so your console feels modern.
Modern Art Deco
Just like adding wallpaper can make a huge difference in the display of your console, modern art can do the same. Add a mirror with an art deco finish to create that modern appeal that makes the room look and feel modern yet grand.
Something is charming about having an organic table with just as charming decorative pieces. The key is matching your organic console with organic, simple décor that adds to the room’s chic, charm without taking away from any bold decorative aspects you might have.
Bring in Lighting
Not all of your décor needs to be directly on your console it can be on the side, or above it. When seeking something to place above your console, always consider bringing in a light fixture. Light fixtures work great due to how open and airy they make the room. They also add personality where you want and need it most.
Another form of decorating your console is to add woven baskets. Woven baskets work great in adding décor because of how simplistic they are. They also add a textured appeal without overtaking the room’s space or decorating style. Add a few baskets under your console to save on space while adding extra storage to your decor.
Who doesn’t love an edgy console? There is something beautiful about having that touch of edge that makes the room feel contemporary and sleek. If you have been wanting to add an edgy twist to any room yet couldn’t figure out how to do so this is the perfect, modern way to achieve it.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
Adding a mirror is always a good idea, it makes the room feel grander without taking away from your console. It’s the perfect additional decorative piece to have in a room when you have a smaller space. The smaller the room the grander your mirror should be. It takes your décor to the next level while giving you an expansive feel.
