Dining Room Sideboard Styling Tips

Add Zing to Your Chattanooga Dining Room

Every surface provides an opportunity to add some style to your home, and the dining space sideboard is no exception. While it does need to fulfill the purpose of storing all the necessary essentials to serve dinner, that doesn’t mean it has to be all business. Decorate the sideboard in your Chattanooga dining room, and add some beauty to your space with these effortless sideboard styling tips.

Add style to your Chattanooga dining room with fewer and larger pieces for a modern look and feel.


Keep it simple. If you overthink it, and add too many pieces, you may end up with the unfortunate look of a cluttered space. Larger and fewer pieces yield a modern and up-to-date look, so work to keep it intentional.

Add style to your Chattanooga living room by adding a lamp for warm lighting and to add interest to the space.


Add an interesting lamp. Even if the space gets plenty of natural light, a lamp can introduce a new texture or design element, and can balance out accessories used on the other side. Plus, the soft glow of a lamp adds a cozy vibe to late night dinners.

Create a more laid back vibe in your Chattanooga dining room space with layered artwork that is leaned instead of hung on the wall.


Don’t hang your artwork. Especially if you’re going for a more laid back look. Lean it or layer multiple pieces for a fun and casual feel. It keeps the space from feeling too stuffy and it’s a great way to avoid commitment if you like to change out or rearrange accessories frequently.

Style up your Chattanooga dining room featuring pieces that are used often, even stacking dishes and bowls on open shelving.


Keep often used items on display. There’s no need to hide your pretty pieces. Plus, it’s great to have easy access to items that are used on a regular basis. Stack dishes and bowls in open shelving, and leave the surface free for putting out drinks or small bites, buffet style.

Add a mirror in your Chattanooga dining room space as a chic alternative to artwork.


Replace the artwork with a mirror. A mirror can be a chic alternative to the expected, and it can be especially useful in a closed off dining space that doesn’t get a lot of natural light.
