Say Hello to These 4 New Entry Table Ideas

Nothing says, “welcome home” like the perfect entryway décor. I just recently did a makeover on my own personal entryway. I love that when my guests come over, they are greeted with a pretty entrance complete with a console table and accessories. Now, you don’t need a huge space to create something like this. It’s all about finding the right sized furniture that fit the space right. Since my entryway is rather skinny, I was able to find a thinner table, much like the one above. Another tip is to decorate “up” with a small space. Hang art and install lights above the table to fill the space vertically, not horizontally.

This is a super small entry space. The best solution was finding a smaller table that could still fit accessories on the top, but didn’t take up a lot of width. A vintage library card cabinet with custom legs was the perfect idea. It’s unique, modern, and slightly quirky. It also gives drawers for extra storage space for keys etc.

These owners had the right idea when decorating up a stairwell. They used a short table and placed hooks going up the angle. The simple table doesn’t compete with the space, at all, and gives counter space for accessories and other objects.

This is one of my favorite entryway tables to date and it’s SO SIMPLE. It’s just enough great design to make a statement without overdoing the minimalist space. The black table and white wall gives off some pretty contrast, while the simple accessories are both decorative and practical. Throw your keys in the bowl and check the time on the clock. Perfect!

Not every space needs a console table. Some spaces would benefit from a bench or a simple chair. A console table simply adds style, sophistication, and extra space. If you need more things hidden, find a table with drawer space. Otherwise, purchase accessories like baskets and bowls that you can store things in. Have fun with your entryway and make it a personal space. Your guests will love to see you personality shine through!
