Adding a Focal Point

Irrespective of what size of hallway table you get, you will definitely need something to create a focal point. This can be done by displaying a wide range of things including:

  • Mirrors
  • Fine art
  • Wreaths
  • Clocks

You can also use something oversized that can add drama to space but at the same time, you should make sure that it is not wider than the table. There should always be a couple of inches on each side to prevent it from looking too large for a furniture piece. When styling your entryway console, you can even display some odd number of similar collectibles to create a seamless look and feel of one large piece.

Create Height

Usually, console tables are long and low, but you can create some height by incorporating just some small touches. You can place some candlesticks, tall vases, tall figurines, or a lamp on top that will gain your attention upwards. This is exactly similar to what a focal piece above the furniture does.

Layer and Stack Accessories

The glass console looks amazing and the best part of getting a console table is the excitement of accessorizing it. But in this process, you may get carried away and add too many things. If you want to create a layered and cohesive look, you can stack books, boxes, baskets, etc. to help build a base. The linear look can be either vertical or horizontal or you can stagger them on each shelf that will give a more natural appearance.
