For hall and entry ways to remain neat and tidy, having somewhere to drop papers, keys and mail when you first walk through the door is a great idea.
Use a chair, narrow shelf, or bench, alternatively a narrow console table - all of these are perfect for where space is limited.
shopping for a hall table
To make shopping easy, look for a table style to suit other furniture items in your house
Extra storage can be achieved easily by selecting a table with drawers or baskets underneath. This leaves the top free to display a potted plant, vase or lamps without appearing cluttered or messy
For added impact, hang a picture, group of pictures or mirror above the hall table. To appear balanced, make sure what you hang is in proportion to, or about the same size as the width of the table
