Enhance Your Entry Way With A Hall Table

When people use the term hall table, they usually think of, well, a table in the hallway of their home. But what many people do not realize is that the most popular place to use one of these tables is actually in the entry way of a home. Why not call it an entry table then? Who knows, but if you can get past the name that seems to make no sense you will realize that adding one of these tables is a great way to make functional use of otherwise wasted space while adding style to the entrance of your home.

This is a nice example of how a homeowner has utilized this space for their hall table and mirror, plus a little extra.

Many home owners see the entryway to their home and really don’t think too much about it. It is just a space they walk through as they come and go each day. But what if it could be something much different than that? What if you had a proper place for the keys, daily mail, loose change, and all the other assorted things you have in hand as you come home each day?

The right table placed in your entry way can handle all this for you. These tables are available in any number of storage configurations as far as their internal storage goes. If you are looking for a place to store umbrellas, rain boots, etc, perhaps an open shelf under the table would suit your needs. But if you want a cleaner look and closed storage, there are many tables available with one or multiple drawers that can hold anything from loose change to keys to the daily mail.

Once you have settled on the storage configuration you want, think about the space above the table. Wouldn’t it be great to have a place to check your look one more time when  leaving the house or coming home to your loved ones? Many hall tables come with matching mirrors and are ideal if placed in the entry way.

And after all that, if you end up loving your new entrance hall table enough you might even decide to add one in the hallway!  These tables are great in that location for all the same reasons they are ideal in your entry way.  Sometimes, in this location, you’ll need a narrow console table in order to make it easier to get by or around.  The hallway gets a lot of traffic, so making sure that the hall table is out of the way is a wise idea, both functionally and aesthetically.
