I’m so excited to share my entry table decor. We bought our home a few years ago and we are decorating it slowly but surely! I had a great spot for an entry table on a wall straight ahead of our front door, but I was struggling with exactly how I wanted to decorate and what style I was going for. Now that I’ve had some time to start figuring it
I was fortunate to head out on a girls day of shopping and lunch so I had help mixing and matching and getting some much-needed opinions. I’m far from a decisive person! The good news is now our home is starting to feel
Choosing an Entryway Table
I did a lot of searching for many different console tables. I found several different designs that I liked. I ultimately selected my criteria as a table that was affordable, narrow and not too long, a top and bottom shelf, rustic brown, and I wanted two drawers. I found searching on the internet easier since I could easily get the dimensions of the tables.
Tips to Consider When Choosing Your Entry Table
- Price – There are expensive options and there are inexpensive options. I fluctuated between both ends of the spectrum before ultimately finding this table and it was inexpensive.
- Size – It’s really important to measure the space where you are trying to put your console or entry table. Our space is right at the bottom of our stairs so we wanted something not too long but also relatively narrow. We didn’t want to bump into the table every time we passed through the hall.
- Color – There are console tables in every color. I ultimately decided on this color since it matches the color of my furniture in the adjacent living room.
- Style – There are rustic, traditional, modern industrial, coastal styled tables. You’ll have to also consider the function when choosing the style. Consider if you need drawers to stash keys or bills.

Tips for Styling An Entry Table
- Choose the focal point – It can be a mirror, a piece of art, or even a
collage. The focal point tends to center the console table and it’s usually a fixated piece. My mirror was my focal point.
- Style under the table – Add texture and style underneath the table. I love how my tray turned out. And there’s so much flexibility to switch pieces out seasonally. The below example is another way I plan to style the tray for the spring with a different candle holder and the floral ball.
- Pick a color scheme – Add some different elements within your color scheme. My table has neutral tones but I incorporated elements of gray and a touch of green with the faux planter.
