Frame a radiator. This narrow console table fits into the hallway with just enough room for two lamps, a pretty potted plant and a small box for keys. Above it, a giant mirror reflects the light.
A radiator shares the wall, which could’ve been a problem. However, the designers built the table around it, creating a frame with the heater in the middle.
Make things match. In this hall, a slim console table solves the radiator challenge again by forming a frame around it. Since the beautiful floor takes center stage, the owners chose a simple design for the console that ties in with the monochrome shapes on the floor without being overwhelming.
The marble tabletop complements the white tiles, while bright flowers and bowls add a vivid touch of color to the black-and-white scheme.
Add drama. It’s tempting to go for light tones and plain surfaces in a small space to give it an open and airy feel. This can work, but it can be equally effective to embrace the coziness of a small space and create some drama instead.
The black-and-white paper on the walls and the equally slick console table would certainly make an impact as you come in the door. A full-length mirror creates an optical illusion, and the lamp, ornaments and artwork bring in even more opulent style.
Be square. In a small square hallway, go for a table that matches the space’s shape. This vintage square table tucks into the area by the door, and it provides plenty of surface for knickknacks and a vase of flowers.
When you’re looking for a hallway console table, it’s worth considering options besides the standard models. Hunt around in secondhand stores or online to find an alternative table that could work just as well or even better.
Combine it with shoe storage. This hallway isn’t tiny, but a narrow console table like this would work well in a small space. The beauty of this design is that it combines a top surface with extra storage. There are drawers for keys, coins and outerwear, as well as a recess for shoes below, so there’s no need to add any extra pieces of furniture.
Get curvy. Ensure that there are no collisions with sharp edges by popping in a curved console table instead of a straight one. This half-moon model is the ideal fit for the wall here — it fills the space without blocking the route through the doorway into the next room.
The vintage style of this table goes well with the cozy feel of the rest of home, and it gives you a clue as to what to expect as soon as you enter.
Tuck it next to the stairs. No room near the front door? Look elsewhere for places to put your console table. If you don’t have a cabinet door under your staircase, use the space for a table instead. The pale wood of this one contrasts beautifully with the inky wall behind it and, at the same time, ties in with the white staircase.
