5 Ways to Decorate a Console Table | Whether you love making an entrance or you simply need a place to hang your coat, it can be hard to strike the right balance with your home’s front entryway.
This is especially true when it comes to your console table: should you go wild and display a collection of items, or should you keep it minimalistic and functional? The answer to this question, of course, is a personal one—but that doesn’t mean we can’t help you get started!
We’ve put together a quick guide to five simple but elegant strategies for decorating your entrance table, so read on to learn more.
- Go Green
One of the best ways to decorate an entry table is to add some greenery to your décor. Regardless of your other stylings, it’s impossible to go amiss with a vase of fresh-cut flowers and greens, but decorating your table with a variety of potted plants can add a bright, nature-inspired look to your entryway. The effect is even greater if you keep the natural look going with a wood console table, although a clear acrylic console table is also a fantastic way to show off a variety of foliage both above and below the furniture.
- Embrace Function
At the end of the day, it’s important to remember that your entry hall table needs to be functional as well as welcoming. To that end, don’t forget to consider ways of decorating with some of the elements you’ll need, from a stylish mirror to check your appearance on the way out the door to a colorful tray to hold your keys and phone.
- Mix Heights and Textures
If you’re struggling to find inspiration, consider mixing items of different heights and textures on your table. This allows you to create visual interest with a simple vignette as soon as guests walk into the door. Include pieces like a lamp with an interesting silhouette, tall sculptural objects, a stack of books, a textured table runner, and more.
- Add Meaningful Elements
Many homeowners fall into the trap of creating stunning entryways that lack a personal touch. That’s where the console table comes in: it’s a great place to display items that you love! Don’t hesitate to show off personal items of pride, vacation souvenirs, favorite collections, valuable keepsakes, and meaningful photos of loved ones.
- Include Pops of Color
You don’t have to go overboard, but adding a pop of color (or two) to your entry table can catch your guests’ attention in a pleasing way. Consider displaying a colorful coffee table book, a framed piece of artwork, a bright floral arrangement, and similar elements.
Make the Most of Your Home’s Console Table
Your home’s console table is one of the first things your guests will see when they enter your home, as well as one of the first pieces of furniture you’ll come across after a long day out. In other words, it’s important to make sure you create a welcoming space with this simple piece of furniture! Trying one or more of the tips above can help you find the perfect design to pair with the rest of your home’s entryway.
