Hallway Tables

Hallway or console tables are the perfect option for tight spaces like multi-purpose rooms, compact study spaces, and corridors. These pieces fill a vacant space close to a wall and make the most of your home. When choosing the hallway table, consider the dimensions of your hallway, suitable style, available materials, and the placement of the table.

Length and Width

You obviously do not want the console table to look out of place, looking too narrow or way too large fit into a narrow spot. Therefore, measure the hallway carefully. Measure the length of the wall where you want to place the table, and look for a table that is about 60 percent of this length to ensure the right balance. The longer the table, the wider it should be as well because too long and overly narrow tables do not look as appealing. However, the width probably depends on the space available. The table should not get in the way or be difficult to pass.

Style

Pick a style that combines well with the existing furniture, so it would all be in perfect balance. Do not introduce an ultra-modern table into a rustic home and vice versa. As a rule of thumb, aim to match the general style of your home, or if you have mainly wooden furniture, the tone of wood.

Material

Wooden tables have the versatility to work well in different settings. In a contemporary home, opt for dark wood for a sleek finish, and choose rich wood like oak if you have a country house. See-through glass tables make the space feel larger and are great additions in very narrow spaces. Mirrored tables suit best in bedrooms to give an aura of a boudoir. The most luxurious, however, are marble tables with their exquisite look.

Placement

You do not have to put the table in the centre of the hallway; it would not look very stylish in that place. If you have followed the rule of proportion, the table is long enough to take several different spots in the hallway. In addition to hallways, you can use console tables in bedrooms as a dressing table or in the living room as a room separator.
