Console table in the narrow hallway
The console table appears to be the first piece of furniture that the visitor sees when the door of the house is opened to receive him, so it is necessary to choose this piece well, so that it best expresses the style of the apartment, and its colors, especially when the entrance is connected to the reception hall. The harmony between the design of the table and other elements of the space is essential. Therefore, the engineer, Reham, attaches importance to the design of the console table, as the decorations contained in the piece, elegance and luxury all reflect the taste of the owner of the house.
She says that “the console table that takes its place in the entrance of a narrow house is usually painted in a light, modern color, such as silver, white, light gray or even light wood.”

And she adds that “the presence of the mirror is indispensable in the narrow space, where the console table is, provided that the table is designed in a way that combines the classic and modern styles, such as choosing a thick marble (or ceramic) surface, with two drawers under the surface, and the four-piece legs being Finely engraved. A square (round or tall) mirror rests on the table.”

Engineer Reham stresses the importance of coordination between the material that designs the console table, and other materials that are evident in the entrance decorations, such as the floor, the door of the house and the walls, in addition to achieving harmony between the table handles and the antiques distributed on its surface, as well as the hangings on the walls.
She says that the narrower the entrance area, the design of the console table in a soft way, with the magnification of the mirror.
On the other hand, when the console table is located in the spacious entrance, there are no restrictions on the designer’s choices, whether in terms of colors, materials or shape, in addition to the size of the console table, which can be adjacent to a cupboard, while decorating the surroundings with paintings.”
On the other hand, if the entrance area of the house is independent and separate from the other parts of the house that are hidden behind thick doors or walls, then engineer Reham can apply special decorations for the entrance, which applies to the design of the console table.
