Welcome to the world of entryway tables, otherwise known as console tables. A console table is a great piece of furniture to have in your entryway, hallway or any other area in your home, as it offers style and function. Whether you are looking for a modern, traditional or eclectic design, a console table can provide the perfect finishing touch to your home décor. In this blog post, I’ll will be discussing 5 tips to help you elevate your console table decor and create an eye-catching entryway. From styling to accessorizing, you will find everything you need to make your console table the centerpiece of your entryway.
Decorating a console table against a wall is a great opportunity to showcase your personal style and elevate the look of your home. The first step to creating a stunning console table decor is to start with a blank canvas. This means removing all items from the console table so you can start fresh.
I love using a neutral wooden console table for a more earthy look, but you can choose any table that suits your personal style. Affordable home decor stores like IKEA or Target offer a variety of console tables that can fit any budget. If you’re looking for something more high-end, Studio McGee offers stunning console tables that are worth the investment.
Once you have your blank canvas, you can start planning your decor. Don’t worry if you’re not sure where to start – the tips in this post will guide you through the process and help you create a beautiful console table display. So, let’s get started!

Creating a focal point is crucial when it comes to how to style a console table. It draws the eye in and makes a statement. Don’t be afraid to play around with different elements until you find the perfect one for your space. A simple and effective way to create a focal point is to use an oversized mirror. Not only does it make the space look larger, but it also reflects light and adds depth to the room. If you’re not a fan of mirrors, oversized wall art is another great option. Choose something that speaks to you and complements your style. Get creative and have fun with it! You’ll be amazed at how much a simple addition can transform your space. Taking a trip to Target can also be helpful when looking for inspiration and affordable pieces to decorate your console table.

Once you have your focal point established, it’s time to start layering textures and patterns to give your console table depth and dimension. This is where you can get really creative and have some fun! Think about different textures like wood, metal, glass, and fabric, and incorporate them in your decor. Mix and match patterns like florals, and geometric shapes to add interest to your space.
From decorative boxes to woven baskets, there’s a wide range of items that can easily be incorporated into any decor style. Don’t be afraid to experiment and mix and match different textures and patterns until you find the perfect balance.
Another great way to add texture is by using textiles. Drape a cozy blanket over a basket at the bottom of your console table or layer a few decorative pillows in complementary colors and patterns. You can even switch out your decor seasonally to keep your console table looking fresh and new.
Just remember, less is more when it comes to layering textures and patterns. You want to make sure your decor doesn’t look cluttered or overwhelming. Stick to a color palette and try to keep a cohesive look throughout your space.
Adding greenery to your console table is a simple yet effective way to bring life to your decor. Whether you choose a potted plant or a vase of fresh flowers, greenery can soften the lines of your table and make everything prettier. If you’re not sure where to start, try placing a potted plant or vase of flowers towards one end of your table, either fine! This will create a visual break in the decor, drawing the eye towards the greenery and creating a focal point.
If you don’t have a green thumb, don’t worry! There are plenty of low-maintenance options available, like faux stems! These can add texture and color without requiring a lot of care. Consider the height of your accessories and how the greenery will fit in with the rest of your decor.
Overall, adding greenery is an easy way to breathe new life into your console table decor. Your console table will thank you for it!
Now that you have created a balanced look with your console table decor, it’s time to add some personality to the mix. Accessorizing with purpose means selecting decor pieces that not only enhance the overall aesthetic of your space, but also reflect your unique style and personality.
For instance, if you’re a lover of all things vintage, you can accessorize with antique vases, vintage frames, or a retro clock. On the other hand, if you prefer a more modern look, consider incorporating minimalist sculptures, abstract art, or sleek metallic accents.
Keep in mind that less is more when it comes to accessorizing your console table. Don’t overcrowd the surface with too many decor pieces, as it can take away from the focal point and create a cluttered look.
