How To Style An Entryway Table

So, you've decided to finally take the plunge and give your entryway a facelift. But where do you start? If you're like most people, you probably have an entryway table or cabinet that's begging for some love.

So, how do you style an entryway table? Read on to find out!

Step 1:

Pick a focal point.

When deciding how to style your entryway table with art, the first step is to pick a focal point. This is usually achieved by placing a large mirror, an oversized art, or a set of smaller artworks about 6 to 9 inches above your entryway table.

Your focal point will basically set the tone for the rest of your design. If you want a more modern look, go for abstract art or even a large mirror. And if you're going for something classic, try hanging a framed landscape art, and adding a sculpture on your table.


Example shown here is a small entryway table styled with 24x30" framed vintage art "Wildflowers". We love how the artwork compliments the transitional aesthetics of the console and decor elements.

Step 2:

Consider the scale.

The next step is to consider the scale of the focal point in relation to the table. You don't want the artwork or mirror to be too small or too big - it should be just right! If you have a small entryway table, then a smaller piece of art would be best. But if you have a larger table, then you can go for a bigger statement piece or a grid gallery wall.

An oversized abstract framed art like "fields" here is a great way to add impact without being distracting.

Add Some Height

One of the most important things to remember when styling an entryway table is to add some height. This will help create the illusion of a larger space and make your entryway table look more inviting. Use a tall vase, table lamp, or tall branches to create height.

You can also create a tall base by choosing a vertical art or stack a pair to create visual impact.
