A tiny entryway table, also known as a console table, is a great addition to a small apartment. It creates some extra storage, plus it’s a cute little spot to decorate with flowers or photo frames.
I was looking for furniture for my small apartment when I came across some gorgeous ideas to use a narrow entryway table in your apartment.
Below I’m sharing my favorite ways to use an entrance table in your small living room or at awkward little spots in your home.

1. Tiny entryway table
The hall in an apartment can be so narrow that furniture won’t even fit. However, as you can see in the picture above, a small table will fit when you have a little wall space between the living room and the hall.
Spots like this are great to add to a little table or shelving to leave your keys or hang a mirror.
2. Narrow console table
A narrow table like this works perfectly in a small apartment. When you have limited space, you don’t want furniture with lots of frills. The sleeker, the better.
This console table has an extra storage shelf, which I personally love using for storage baskets.
3. Entryway wall-mounted cabinets
With little space in your entrance, wall-mounted cabinets or shelves often are a better choice than a table. This cabinet is officially meant for your laundry or kitchen, but if you have a narrow entryway, it could work there too.
Plus, you can make this a fun DIY project by painting these white cabinets in a matte grey – or another color of your choice.

4. Gold console table
I adore this gold console table. Because of its muted gold and metal feel, it looks super elegant.
5. Entryway table with storage
An entryway table with drawers and a storage shelf is a great way to optimize your space in an apartment. Plus, I love how creative you can get with decorating.
How to decorate an entryway table
The fun part about entryway tables is the decoration. It’s one of the first things you see when entering your apartment, so I truly believe in making it look incredible.

This simple white vase set works like a charm on any table. Style this set of 3 together or use separately.
Faux eucalyptus stems
A decent quality of faux eucalyptus stems works beautifully in a big white vase. This is a super budget-friendly decoration idea because you don’t have to replace it with fresh flowers weekly :).
Style the bottom part of your entry table with a basket. You can also use it for some sneaky storage, like for blankets or a small umbrella.
Here are my best tips for decorating:
- If you have space, hang a round mirror above the entryway table.
- Add in some green. Amazon has some great looking faux greenery that I love.
- Use a beautiful gray ceramic vase set.
