Hallway interior design service & ideas for your home - Beautiful Homes

A well-organised and beautiful entryway or foyer is the best first impression that anyone can get of your home, here are entryway ideas with design and functionality for your inspiration

Having the right hallway unit is integral to making the feeling of comfort and welcome immediately apparent in your home. What is more, an entrance table is not merely decorative, this piece of furniture is conveniently placed next to the front door – ideal for grab-and-go items like handbags or keys and to serve as a landing space for mail or packages. In an open plan house an entry console table can help define and demarcate a foyer space giving flow and functionality to your room. But how to choose a table that fits your needs? Whether you want a sleek and narrow hallway console table or a unique circular foyer table, we discuss a few factors that might help you decide.

Where should you Place a Hallway Table?

First let’s roughly define the different kinds of hallway furniture that you might encounter. Broadly speaking, hallway table design falls into the basic categories of side tables, console tables, and accent tables. Side tables are usually smaller and serve to provide a surface within easy reach of seating like chairs or couches. A small side table is ideal in an entryway where space is limited or one with a chair and shoe rack. A console table typically stands against a wall or sometimes a corner, they are often taller and might provide hallway storage options. Console tables are sometimes accessorised with a hallway mirror for a convenient way to check your outfit before leaving home.

Accent tables are frequently freestanding and might provide a focal point in a hallway that has a lot of space or one that has a stairway. This style of entry table is often circular and used for flower vases or to display family portraits and knick-knacks. The placement of your table will depend on the style you prefer and space that you are working with.

 

 

The Practicalities: Picking the Perfect Hallway Table

You will need to pay close attention to your overall space and your pattern of usage to ensure that your entry table is practical as well as attractive.

  • Measure your Space:

    To begin with, select a table that works for the space you have in your foyer. Pick a hallway table design that improves the usability of your space rather than negatively impacts it. For example in a corridor-like entryway you might need a narrow hallway table that requires very little floor space. Or maybe your open plan entrance needs added definition and could benefit from a large accent table. In a cosy hallway you might want a semi-circular corner table that adds practical purpose but doesn’t crowd your space. You don't want to purchase a corner hallway table only to discover upon delivery that it is too large to fit in the designated corner or that you keep bumping into it!
  • Remember your Theme:

    When choosing and decorating entrance table options, keep your overall interior design style in mind. If your décor style is casual contemporary, your table probably needs to look very different from someone who has a farmhouse or strongly ethnic interior style. Since you will gain an immediate impression of your table at entrance, of house style and theme within a few steps after that, this transition should be as smooth and consistent as possible. One way to get a sense of how the hallway table design would appear with other items in your décor, is to compare a photograph with types of furniture you already own.

  • Choose Function and Form:

    A hall table can be just attractive and decorative, but you can also choose an entrance console table that includes clever shelves or book storage. You should choose a table that meets your needs by considering how it will function with the storage and usage demands of your home. A hall table with drawers might be a clever way to store warm scarves or gloves for easy access. If you receive many packages then an entrance table at a convenient height might be ideal. And if you have pets or small children, a table that is easier to clean might be preferred.

 

 

Add your Own Style: Hallway Table Design Ideas

Whether space demands mean that you need a narrow hallway table or a taller entrance console table with a mirror above it, here are a few ways you can make the style work for you.

 

1. Go Minimalist: A Glass Hallway Table

One way to make narrow console tables for narrow hall spaces take up less visual weight and space is to choose glass topped or metallic options. The effect of glass or mirrored hallway table design is both elegant and stunning as they add reflected light and create an ultramodern aura of airiness and space.

 

2. Add Light: A Hallway Console Table with Mirror Above

Another way to add brightness and airiness into an entrance area is to place a large, perhaps decorative mirror above your entry console table. Coordinate the styling and materials of your mirror frame to that of your entrance table to create visual balance and the impression of a matched unit.

 

3. Maximise Space: A Hallway Bench

If you prefer to have seating in your entry hall, why not explore the option of an entryway storage bench to increase the multifunctionality of your space. Or as another way to make the most of limited space, why not go for a pull-out bench that can be nestled under narrow console tables for narrow hall areas.

4. Contemporary Side Tables: An Entry Table with a Twist

While a rectangular glass hallway table is a great way to modernise your entrance area, small moulded acrylic tables in organic shapes and fresh styles can completely update the look of your space. If you are looking for a hallway side table in a contemporary style with clever design innovations, you might want to explore modern moulded options.

 

5. Maximise Space : A Corner Hallway Table with Storage

If your entrance console table needs to fit in the corner you might want to explore half hexagon or triangle shaped tables that have an in-built drawer or shelving. These nestle into the corner of your room, giving you all the benefits of a small hallway table, while doubling practical use as a clever storage solution.

6. Multi-Functional Hallway Table : Entryway Storage Bench

Another smart design for hallway furniture is a bench with shelving under it as it provides both a seating space and can serve as hallway shoe storage. This style can come as open shelves,be a combination of drawers and shelves or be concealed behind sliding doors. Some bench styles even have a raised side section that becomes a hall table with drawers stacked beneath.
