When someone comes to your house and walks in the front door the first place they will be is your home’s entryway. You want to make a great first impression and one way to do that is to ensure you have cool decor. One key element of this is your console table in the entryway. Here are some tips to decorate your entryway console table like a pro!

Lights

A dark entryway is a dreary place to walk into. Both illuminate the area and draw attention to your console table with a nice light. Picking a lamp that matches the theme of your house will look wonderful. If the home’s design is modern, a nice sleek and contemporary lamp is perfect just as a more rustic house will benefit from a classic lantern on the console table.

Flowers And Succulents

Add some life to your console table in the entryway with a literal piece of plant-life! Flowers not only can look gorgeous but their smell can help make a room a lot less stuffy. If you have concerns about your guests being sensitive to certain kinds of scents, succulents always look fantastic without being overwhelming or drawing too much attention to themselves. Faux blooms and plants can also do, especially if you have no natural light in the space – not every plant can handle that.

An Anchor

Every console table should have an anchor of some sorts, could be a big painting or a large mirror, which other accessories gather around like a focal point. While choosing an anchor, it’s wise to go with matching shades for a seamless transition from top to bottom although you can also pull off contrasting colors if you pair them nicely.

Asymmetrical Decor

If you aren’t sure about placing objects, go for symmetrical decor as it always works. Asymmetrical combinations can be tricky to nail down, so to speak, but when executed right, they can be equally appealing as the above arrangement, sometimes even more. The ideal placing dictates to have shorter items to one side and taller ones on the other and small accessories in between to bridge the distance.
