How to style an entryway table

Updated: Nov 11, 2023

When styling your entryway table, it's important to consider ease of use when arriving home. There is nothing worse than fumbling around in the dark with bags in your hands. To ensure convenience, I always include a lamp on my entry tables - something that is easy to use. I also make sure there are quick temporary storage areas such as a basket, drawer, or dish. These are great for throwing in your keys when you come home or even your gloves and hat during those cold months.

After including these key elements, you can add other decorative pieces to elevate the space. For instance, adding a vase with branches provides some height to the table. I like to group items in threes, keeping with the same theme I've used in my previous posts. I also stack them on top of a few books to add more definition and texture to the space. By adding different textures and colors that coordinate with each other, it makes the space more appealing to the eye. Varying heights also add more interest.

Lastly, adding a mirror or artwork is a great way to add a splash of color or brighten up the space. A mirror is an excellent option for a smaller entryway as it makes the space appear larger. It is also great for that one last check before you leave home.
