How to make an impression in your home the moment someone steps through the door

The hallway can often be neglected when it comes to decorating a left a little bare. But as the first room that you’ll guests walk into, why not use it as space to make a statement and make an impression right from the start. Here are a few of my top picks available at Modish Living.

Hudson Living Marlow Console Table - Modish Living
For a fresh elegant look, the Hudson Living Marlow Console Table would be perfect. The luxury console table has been beautifully crafted using solid oak and features an exposed wooden top for a classic yet glamorous finish. The body of the console has been painted in a misty grey colour that would look fantastic in any contemporary décor scheme. Simply styled with a sophisticated glass vase with white flowers in, the Marlow Console Table would look stunning.

Hudson Living Kielder Oak Console Table - Modish Living
For an urban chic look, the Hudson Living Kielder Oak Console Table would look fantastic. The handcrafted console table has been crafted out of solid oak and features a plank finish, often showcased in Nordic designs. The console also features a single drawer centred in the middle, perfect for adding a little extra storage.

Industrial Lowry Reclaimed Wood Console Table
The newly launched Lowry Industrial Reclaimed Wood Console Table would also be great for achieving this industrial inspired look. The body of the reclaimed wood console table is crafted from beautiful pine wood and features natural markings for a charismatic finish. Contrasted against the dark grey steel frame, the console has a fantastic industrial look which would look gorgeous in a contemporary décor scheme. Pair with glamorous art deco inspired accessories for a unique look inspired by stylish New York interiors.

Dorset Purbeck Reclaimed Wood Console Table
Alternatively, the Dorset Purbeck Reclaimed Wood Console Table will create a glamorous rustic finish. The body of the reclaimed wood console table has been painted with a fresh white colour which is perfect for placing in any décor scheme to ensure your room remains bright.

How To Make A Feature Out Of Your Hallway

Hallways are often under used spaces which lack the style throughout the rest of your home. By adding a beautiful console table from our range at Modish Living, your hallway could be the talking point of your home design.

Hall furniture

There was a time when the hallway was deemed to be just the entry room of the house. A place where you would leave your shoes and coats, and throw down your bags.  Many homes would starve the hallway of heating in order to cut down on bills, making them a cold place to be, thus not always that pleasant.  

As time has moved on, we now take pride in our hallway.  Treating them more as a beautiful entry to our home.   This trend has led to the increased number of articles within glossy home magazines, showing new styles, and beautiful ways to dress your hall.  

Here at Modish Living we like to follow these trends and therefore include some gorgeous solid reclaimed wood console tables, as seen on our site.   Console tables are seen as ideal hallway furniture, not only due to being narrow, but their hight offers a sense of glamour to the room, acting as a narrow table.  

Another perfect item to add to your hallway, depending on the size of your hall, would be to add a beautiful and characterful sideboard.  Sideboards come in all sizes, however their narrow width make them particularly convenient as hallway furniture.  They can also tidy up your hall by allowing you to have great storage solutions,  hiding away those gloves and hats at winter time.
